The Campbell House, A Curio Collection by Hilton
Ranked #20 of 71 Hotels in Lexington
Reviewed May 5, 2014

I was expecting a top notch southern hospitality type hotel. Not the case, the front desk clerk mumbled and could not understand him. Asked the next clerk about the hotel gift shop for postcards? she said to go next door to Rite Aid.(sure the hotel liked the loss of gift shop business). Didnt feel real welcome from the minute we arrived.

The room was old and needed an update. For $149 a night, I could have done better at the chain places.

Room Tip: Avoid this place.

A beautiful hotel just past its prime with a renovation that will hopefully bring it up to speed! Great staff with a willingness to go out of their way to help, but a building that needs more than a face lift. Decent bar and restaurant although going offsite for food and drink is a better option.

Each day we stood in 3 inches of water when we showered, we requested towels and they had holes in them. The hotel is very dark and old and like a maze to get to the lobby. Humiliated by bartender and staff. Anyone who has written a good review on this hotel must work there.

Was looking for a place to sleep that would be quiet and yet not "bargain-basement." Was greeted upon check-in and given a room in the "more quiet part" of the hotel, at my request. The room was very large and the bed comfortable. I wish I could have used the pool; it was lovely. Will come back again when I can stay longer.

It used to be a Crowne Plaza back in 09/10. I recently came back to Lexington and stayed here. It's still under construction/renovation, and we enjoyed our stay. Very spacious room, and we got the room at good price. Yes, it is an aged property, but I don't see the service/bed/room as bad as what some reviews say.

We spent 3 nights here (April 13, 14, 15, 2014). Even though the hotel is under a lot of remodeling, it did not interfere with the ambiance of the hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and suggested things to do in Lexington during our brief stay. The head engineer of the remodeling project gave us a tour of one of the newly remodeled room and all I can say is WOW! Absolutely beautiful. The hotel is huge so we strolled through a lot of halls and found the indoor swimming pool which is quite large for an indoor pool. For all the ladies that love jewelry be certain to visit the gift shop - the owner has some great pieces and the prices are surprisingly low. We will definitely return.

Admittedly, I probably set my expectations too high. I have stayed here many times over the years, and have been through a lot of change with the property. It is now a two to two point five star property at best. The customary Campbell House hospitality was nonexistent, and the entire property was "tired". There were rennovations ongoing, and I was able to look beyond that. I will not be back, however. There are just too many better properties in Lexington that are at the same price point or less. This hotel will be the next Lexington Springs Hotel...a steady d ownhill spiral until it gets bulldozed.
