I had trouble finding a hotel room for the weekend that I'd planned to visit Lexington. All the well-known hotels were booked up, so I was leery of staying at this hotel, especially since the price was considerably lower than others. But I needed a place to stay downtown close to the Rupp Arena, so I took a chance.
I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the hotel was. It was in the heart of downtown, near the university, and in a nice neighborhood. The staff was helpful and genuinely friendly, the room was clean, and overall it was a pleasant stay. For the money, I wished the breakfast bar had more than cereal and bagels/danishes, but I didn't go hungry! Also, if you are a light sleeper, request a room upstairs away from the street. Our room was on the ground floor near the parking lot and lobby, and I didn't sleep well due to the loud, late night partyers outside. This wasn't the hotel's fault, and I didn't complain...just an FYI.
