The golf course is in great condition for February. The staff was very friendly. I lost a head cover and they shipped it to me for free. Love the layout , front nine is open while the back nine is a little tighter. Challenging but fair. I'll be back.

Stayed with friends for a long weekend, very nice place, excellent staff! This property was easy to get to. The wifi was horrible though, way too slow. Overall I would stay here again, I enjoyed this hotel!

This Marriott hotel is an excellent alternative when in Lexington. Slightly outside of town in a "bluegrass" location. The staff are excellent and quickly respond to requests with a smile. Special Kentucky drink offered as part of the check-in......go for refills! Hotel appearance is very "woody" in the old style and at some point will get a refresh - regardless,...

I was there for about ten days, for a meeting in the hotel. I've been going to this hotel for about ten years now, and its honestly one of the most consistently good properties I've been. You wont be disappointed. They dont have a great restaurant choice but they are close to some really great restaurants.
