While we did not stay at the hotel, Larry, our server at the restaurant, went above and beyond in seeing that our dining experience was outstanding. Glasses were refilled correctly without asking, dishes removed before serving new dishes, pleasant and attentive without hovering. Larry knows the menu and the area. So glad we were fortunate enough to have him as... More

I won't sit here and say it is the most luxurious of accommodations, it is not. However it is MORE than adequate and the location to downtown and other tourist locations is phenomenal. The hotel was doing renovations, but my room was very clean and nothing to complain about. Definitely worth the price and a great deal.

Larry was our server at the clarion hotel in Lexington for dinner on 11/12/16. We were in Kentucky looking for pappy van winkle bourbon. While at the hotel we visited the restaurant and met Larry as our server. He was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. We enjoyed our dinner very much. He did a great job.

We stayed in building I. The door to get in slammed everytime someone went in or out all night. The room was really dated. The building from the outside was nice but the inside was years behind. The shower made a high pitched squeal and marks all over everything. The curtains wore torn. My wife took the grandkids to the... More

We will stay here again. Loved the TempurPedic mattresses and loved the Cortland's Southern restaurant just down the hall from our room. We felt cozy and safe here. We love Kentucky and will stay here on our next visit there.

I choose this hotel because we needed a place to stay that provided shuttle service to the airport. The staff at the check in, check out desk and shuttle service were among the friendliest I've encountered. The rooms, though dated were large, clean and well appointed.
