My family and I had a long weekend stay at this Marriott property while in the Bluegrass to attend a vintage auto show. Always a pleasure to return to my “Old Kentucky Home” where I was born and raised.
I rate this property as average by usual high Marriott standards. A Marriott Rewards Lifetime Platinum suite upgrade is acknowledged and was appreciated. Exterior grounds and gold course were really quite lovely. All staff in the concierge lounge offered stellar service.
Certainly, the exterior and to a lesser extent the interior of the physical hotel is starting to show its’ age and in need of a facelift. Engineering twice came to our suite to “repair” a malfunctioning air conditioner that would not shut off. Within a couple of hours of their “repairs” the same issue reoccurred and put the suite back into “igloo mode”. We ended-up spending most of our stay with windows open to maintain an acceptable temperature in the suite.
Valet parking attendants were often nowhere to be found requiring multiple trips to the front desk to have them tracked down. The hotel was at or near maximum capacity including Little League baseball teams in town for a tournament and with multiple family reunions. This made for what seemed like countless unsupervised children roaming about the hotel, many loudly running through hallways into the night. Lacking appropriate parent/guardian supervision to address this issue, hotel security should have intervened but failed to do so.

We were in Lexington for a wedding so we stayed at the Griffin Gate Marriott. The rooms were good and the service was great. The food at the restaurant was good as well. It is a good place to stay in Lexington.

I had the pleasure of visiting the Griffin Gate Marriott this weekend, and was very pleased by the level of professional service and skill I received from Josh, Tisha, Al, and Julia at the spa. If you’re needing to unwind or decompress, I would highly recommend adding a detour to the spa to your itinerary. You won't regret it!

My friends and I stayed at this hotel for one night while visiting Lexington for the Run the Bluegrass event. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Marriott was very nice. The room was comfortable. I'd stay here again.

It's a Marriott but it is tired
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I traveled with my wife on a business trip and she is loyal to the Marriott Rewards Program so we stayed here. It had been twenty years since I had been here. Although I think they've upgraded since then. our room didn't show it. It was small and outdated. Since they had the same bad in-room coffee, I went to the Starbucks in the lobby but it isn't really a Starbucks - just a store selling Starbucks coffee.

If you come, it is solid but don't expect much and you won't be disappointed. Luckily, Marriott is going into a new development right downtown.
