Overview

Resort-style property without resort fees
Some guests said the rooms are a bit dated

The Griffin Gate Marriott's 409 rooms and suites sit among the rolling country hills just north of Lexington, Kentucky. This Marriott outpost is a haven for business travelers, avid golfers and general visitors to the Lexington area. Guests traveling for work appreciate the 28,000 square feet of meeting space and 26 conference rooms, while golfers enjoy the 18-hole Rees Jones-designed course on-site. And all types of travelers welcome the clean, spacious digs, all of which are equipped with coffee makers, LCD TVs and wireless internet access (for $8.95 a day). Recent guests suggest springing for a concierge level room, which offers access to an exclusive lounge as well as complimentary continental breakfasts, snacks and evening hors d'oeuvres. Light bites and drinks can also be found at the 19th Hole and Top Deck, while you can grab a full meal like a New York strip steak and garlic mashed potatoes or a bone-in bourbon filet and sautéed mushrooms at JW's Steakhouse. Looking for a little R&R? Snag a spot at the indoor or outdoor pool, or book a body scrub or massage at the spa. Finally, Marriott Bonvoy members will be happy to learn that they can both earn and use points at this property.
