If you should be going to Lexington KY please do yourself a favor and stay at the Marriott Griffin Gate. Very recently I was there attending a week long function and each time I stay there I feel like family. The stay remembers everything and if you have any special request they are happy to fill them, and fast!!

The staff: I give BIG kudos to Clara at the Front Desk Manager, she is always the best and always smiling. She always wants to make sure each and every guest has the best experience. Along with Clara I give Lauren the Front Desk Supervisor kudos too, she is just a joy if you have any problem or need anything.

The restaurant "JW" has a wonderful breakfast and lunch buffet. And very affordable (will from Calif standards :). My favorite time to go to "JW's" is breakfast because there are 3 of the best servers that I have ever come across. They are Cathy, Diane and Jessica. These 3 ladies have the greatest personalities and are fun when they are waiting on your table. If you should go in for a meal you will know what I mean.

Trust me, I am picky about hotels and this hotel NEVER dissapoints!!


Large facility- some upsides
Reviewed 1 month ago

Stayed for a quick business trip and it’s a fine property about 12 min from the airport. The restaurant was good with the crab cakes but the key lime pie was flat.

Gym was newer but a bit small for the size property. $15 resort fee.

Would definitely stay again.

Great place for a conference
Reviewed 1 month ago

Attended a conference there and the room are very nice. The meeting space is easy to access. Staff from front desk to housekeeping, wait staff in the restaurant, and the banquet/bar staff are great. They are willing to assist you with all your needs.

Good / Not Great

A nice place and the common areas are good. The rooms are ok but they need some attention, particularly the bathrooms. I like it there and will go back but to say it’s a resort is a pretty big stretch.
