No welcome email or communication !

Unfortunate thing happened,

I booked griffin gate, unfortunately I have to change my stay to other marriott due to some distance commute reasons, I called griffin gate and had cancelled my stay there.
I was rest assured my reservation was cancelled, Griffin Gate did not communicate any cancellation number !! I was rest assured my reservation was cancelled and without intimating me Griffin Gate charged me "No Show" fee .

I was not refunded my money after several communication !

Where is customer service??

We check in on July 26th so excited to be celebrating two birthdays for a girls weekend, we will realize Friday after going back to the room from exploring, everything sitting on the floor was wet. The next morning I go downstairs to tell the front desk, very rude, like she didn't want to be bothered with us said she would send someone up with a fan and check on the air conditioner, that did not happen. We woke up Saturday morning to 73° in our room because the air conditioner had quit, and reading on the reviews it looks like there was air conditioner problems. I called the Marriott 2 Days Later they contacted the general manager, Craig, and he contacted me I must say a very professional nice gentleman, he told me what happened was unacceptable and was going to refund our money. That was July 31st it is now August 9th, there has been no refund nor will anybody return my phone calls when I leave a message with his assistant. And I've left more than one message, I think this is very unacceptable for the kind of hotel that this is this is supposed to be top-of-the-line in Lexington Kentucky, not so! Very disappointed in my first stay here, we could have went anywhere but chose this Marriott. I would not recommend this Marriott Resort and Spa. Where is the customer service in the Marriott Hotels anymore??

Send in the wrecking ball!

The employees are very nice and professional. The grounds are beautiful. In fact, this would be a nice location to build a new Marriott. The current hotel is old, out-dated, dirty and tired. Would not recommend a stay at this property. Send in the wrecking ball!!! Also, the bike rentals and golf balls for putting green are not available after 6 p.m. These services should be offered until at least 7:30 p.m. during the summer months. Internet service is spotty; i.e., does not work all the time.
