I live only 20 minutes from this property so rarely do I stay here but now and then my company will hold several day meetings with a late dinner and open bar so it makes sense to stay. I am not sure how long ago the remodel took place but it has made a big difference. The lobby area is...

I left my riding boots in my room. I didn't realize this until I got home to Obio. I called the hotel and they were so nice and found the boots. I received them 3 days later Fed Ex. Now that's customer service! Did I mention at no charge to me. Will definitely stay here in the future.

I had a great stay recently at the Griffin Gate Marriott. The staff provided excellent service. It was so good that, when I left my hanging clothes in the closet, they were happy to ship them back to me. Thanks David!

I recently attended a conference held at Griffin Gate Marriott. From the moment we pulled up, I was immediately impressed. The lobby is gorgeous and comfortable. The room was a little smaller than I am used to but the busy schedule of the conference kept me out of the room most of the time anyway. I loved the conference space...

The hotel has a good restaurant and the concierge lounge has very nice offerings in the evening. Employees are all very friendly. The rooms need updating, furniture is scratched and needs replacing.

Not a place to visit unless you like the late 80's. Although clean the hotel comes across as outdated. Our second floor room gave a stunning view of the roof with a jock cup added for good measure. The room is small and the Wifi is NOT free. Overall I would not recommend the hotel unless you like dated and...

The staff really makes this lovely hotel an even better experience and the renovations were beautifully done. While we aren't fans of the memory foam beds, there is no denying their quality. We stay at this hotel less because the beds aren't good for a neck injury I sustained, but then, we also travel less because of my injury. The...

Griffin Gate is a seasoned hotel on the outskirts of Lexington. We have stayed here many times and are always treated well by the staff, In fact this time, they upgraded us to a suite which was a treat! I enjoy the Sunday brunch there too.
