My hubby and I were supposed to be in the Dominican celebrating our anniversary, but after a tropical depression forced us to change our plans, we decided to hop in the car and head to Lexington. The hotel was a cozy, pleasant surprise! We were within walking distance to lots of great restaurants and the environment in the hotel was... More

Checked in for 4 nights. First night didn't sleep due to a large group of drunk women from a garden club next door. Called the front desk at night and Keith came up and the noise was reduced. Also told the front desk the following morning and they laughed. Breakfast at the hotel was well below par but plenty of... More

Returned to this hotel which is ideally situated downtown near both the U.of KY. and Transylvania campuses. The restaurant and bar are both new, replacing an age old favorite, Johnathan's. The staff and service level was terrific. Faced with a crowd from the Keeneland racing, Blue-White basketball game and the U.K. Football game, they kept a cheery face and led... More

Our room was nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed and great corner location on the 3rd floor. The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. Location was convenient to local restaurants and bars in the area.. We also thought the pricing was reasonable. Would go back again!

I stayed there for the first time a couple of months ago when we came to town to attend the funeral of a dear friend. We didn't arrive until 3:00 am and they were waiting on us and were so nice.

The Hotel was nicely decorated with nice furniture. The bed sleeps very comfortable. I was disappointed with the price of the hotel. No complimentary breakfast, bathrooms very old and need repairs. The bathtub paint was peeling and not very pleasing to the eye or safe for the guest. No microwave in the hotel for heating up food, let alone in... More

The location of this hotel was very convenient to all the places we wanted to visit. The beds were very comfortable and most of the staff were friendly and helpful. Our shower was annoying. You had either scalding hot or cold and not much in between. Plus, every time someone used the lobby bathroom the shower would go cold.
