Michelle, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback about our hotel. I am glad to hear you found our guest suite to be spacious and to your liking. It is also good to see you took notice of the exceptional cleanliness of our facility. Our housekeeping staff works hard every day to serve all our valued guests like yourself. I am happy you were able to join us for our complementary European inspired hot breakfast that we offer daily. Getting a quick and fresh option to start your day is one less thing to worry about when your energy is focused on the well being of your loved ones. I hope your father-in-law is well on his way to recovery and perhaps your next visit will be under better circumstances. April and October are great months to check out Lexington if you happen into any leisure time. Keeneland horse racing meets each of those months and you will be able to see the best of the Bluegrass for sure!

dhcsmc321, Thank you for taking time to leave feedback for your stay with us. I thoroughly enjoy hearing from our gusts that have been here before and can let me know what they think of our recent renovation. I am glad you found our updated design to be bright, modern, and stylish. And isin't our front desk staff just the best? It is good to hear that my team was warm and welcoming while anticipating your needs during your visit. You are absolutely right about the convenience of our location! One would be hard pressed to find a Marriott that is situated so close to activities in the downtown area, near the University of Kentucky, or by the Red Mile horse track in our back yard. Thanks again for your outstanding review. We look forward to welcoming you back next time you are in town!

The property was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The location was very convenient to downtown and campus. I was disappointed with the complimentary breakfast as the eggs seemed artificial or egg substitute-like.

BigGuySteve, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback regarding your recent stay. I am glad to hear our hotel provided a central location to your activities in downtown Lexington and at the University of Kentucky. It is also nice to see you found our accommodations to be exceptionally clean and our spacious guest suite to be to your liking. I am disheartened to hear that our eggs during breakfast did not meet your expectations. Please be assured that your concerns have been passed on to our breakfast team. We do hope to see you again the next time your travels bring you to Lexington.

We are located 1 mile from Rupp Arena, which is in the heart of downtown Lexington. Depending on weather conditions, it is definitely walkable. If not, our desk clerks will be more than happy to arrange transportation. Thanks for considering us!
