I chose to book a room at the Holiday Inn Express Downtown because it was near where I needed to go in Lexington. However, along with proximity to my business meeting locations came proximity to a freight train rail line. The hotel was literally a block or 1.5 blocks away from a rail line and freight trains were chugging through town on that line all night long. Needless to say, just like the lead character in the movie "My Cousin Vinny," I got little sleep due to the noise of the train.
If you don't mind skipping the sleep, this hotel is quite close to the University of Kentucky campus. But, if you want a decent night's sleep, you may want to find something a bit distant from the rail line.
