Love the place!! Greeted with the Maker's Mark sampling committee is a great way to start a stay and suggest it to all other Marriott properties. Additional check in win was an upgrade to a room with a balcony for 6. Very comfortable room / bed / clean. Nice sized fitness area and indoor & outdoor pool area. I like...

Definitely not a 5 star - restrooms older fixtures but property was nice. I felt like my bed leaned and so did another colleague but probably due to memory foam needed to be more centered. Gym got really warm. Service was good, I had a broken tub spout and a colleague had a broken electrical outlet. They made it right...

This is one of the finest and most accommodating hotels I've ever experienced traveling on business! Everyone went out of their way to make sure my stay was especially enjoyable! Two days into this trip an unexpected medical emergency arose at home and I had to cut my stay short. The staff was truly understanding and made sure I was...

Stayed on points. Asked for a room with a large balcony. Told at check-in that we had one. Entered a 4th floor room and it did not have a balcony. Asked the front desk if they could accommodate this as they stated at check-in. Front desk apologized and said a bellman would be up to our room with a new...

I often stay here when visiting Lexington. The resort is not downtown but in a picturesque area off of the interstate. It has recently been remodeled and I enjoy their breakfast buffet. The staff is very friendly and attentive.

Stayed here twice in last two months, and while the hotel was very busy both times with various local conventions, staff seemed to handle the activity well and the hotel never seemed over-crowded. Lobby has several adjacent areas where people can hang out and work, drink, talk, whatever, but not in a traditional "lobby" environment. Received nice Platinum room upgrades...

I have stayed at the Marriott Griffin Gate when in Lexington both for both business and pleasure for 25 plus years and have never had a bad experience. True hospitality in every sense of the word. Marriott Griffin Gate is a true resort in every sense and offers many amenities for the entire family or a single traveler like myself....

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.
