    Historical Traveler Reviews The Campbell House Lexington

    What a beautiful hotel!

    from

    What a treat!

    Me and my husband enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfast and lunch and our servers were always smiling, and had great hospitality.

    Amazing History and Grace

    from

    Absolutely fabulous! I am so impressed with the grandeur of this establishment, I feel so glamourous when I am here, I can't wait to return! Tempur-pedic mattresses, thick bedding and mounds of pillows, I couldn't wait to go to bed. AMAZING!

    Mixed Review for the Crown Plaza Lexington

    from

    This is a historic hotel that has been completely refurbished. It is very clean and updated very well. All the horse paintings and artwork were very nice. The staff is friendly and helpfull. Room service food was just ok. There are no pay per view movies. There is a nice business center and coffee/pastry shop as well as nice gift shop. The bathrooms in the rooms - because it is an older place that has been refurbished - are very very small. The rooms are also unusual in that when the door to the hall is open almost the entire room is visible to anyone in the hallway. Although it is a nice place, we probably would not go back, opting for a place with movies and better food.

    A wonderful hotel with lots of charm

    from

    We visited the Campbell House Inn on our recent trip to Lexington in March 2005. What a wonderful surprise! The hotel is still undergoing some rennovations but I would highly recommend it.

    Lobby - beautiful! Wonderful wood details, fabrics, couches and a welcoming fireplace. The lobby staff is also extremely friendly and helpful.

    Rooms - we had a beautiful room with double queen beds - the size of the room was amazing! The rooms have Thermapedic beds with wonderful sheets, duvets and a lot of fluffy pillows - heavenly!

    Pool Area - this area is still under construction but the pool is open. It's heated and sparkly clean. We all enjoyed swimming in the pool. The surrounding pool area is stunning - I can't wait to see it when it is finished.

    Dining - we had dinner in the dining room and highly recommend it. The food was very good - beware the servings are very large!

    Cafe - this was the only area where we were slightly disappointed. The morning we were there the server was not that friendly and they had a very limited selection of pastries. From their menu it looks like the usually have a much larger selection.

    Gift Shop - wonderful friendly staff - nice selection of gift items.

    We were vacationing with our daughter and would definitely recommend this hotel to families. Our daughter enjoyed the hotel, especially the pool and the staff seemed welcoming to children.

    Overall a wonderful visit! I would highly recommend this hotel when staying in Lexington. I can't wait to return.

    Talk about your Extreme Makovers - You should see the Campbell House NOW!!!

    from

    We've stayed at the Campbell House before during trips to Lexington, particularly when needing to be close to St. Joe's Hospital which is across the street. It wouldn't have been our first choice on hotel accommodations otherwise, but BOY, you should see her now!!!!

    One of Lexington's previously Grand Hotels from a long ago era among the thoroughbred horse industry, the Campbell House had hosted many dignitaries, owners and jockeys but long years of neglect had definitely worn the "gild from the lily.

    Obviously, several million dollars have been spent to renovate the Lobby, Restaurant and guestrooms already and it seems as if several more million are slated for ongoing renovations to their indoor pool area, lounge & hotel facade. It's a wonderful thing to see a previous gem restored to its' full grandeur.

    The guestrooms & baths look brand new - they are very large and spacious and offer the new, and very comfortable, Tempur Pedic (sp???) mattresses. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious and again, the renovations are beautiful!!!

    The few inconveniences we experienced were handled quickly and professionally. I'm certain that the new GM, Mark O'Brien, an experience hotelier from Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, will be able to provide even further customer service guidelines for staff members that will equal the now luxury hotel's interior.

    I would definitely recommend staying here!!! You may want to stay soon before rates are increased to match the quality of the facility now offered.

    Home away from home in Lexington, KY

    from

    The Campbell House Inn is like home away from Home. The great staff, big clean rooms and not the least, great food. There golf course is one of the best. You could stay there and never have to leave the grounds and have a great vacation or business trip. St. Joseph Hospitasl is just across the street and is known for its cardiac unit.

    Threadbare Chic

    from

    I have used The Campbell House on my overnights to Lexington, once or twice a month, for twenty years. It has grown old with me, but retains much of its sedate features. Returnees and regulars are remembered and accommodated. The new owners are committed to restoration of its character while updating the physical features, and much remains to be done, but I think they will accomplish it. I see improvement in succeeding visits.

    The Campbell House Inn is a Lexington landmark and should be preserved and rejuvenated, not destroyed and resurrected in modernity as suggested by a Trip Advisor from out west.

    I am not related to the owners. I have not even met them.

    It will be great!!!

    from

    The Campbell House is not a nightmare. If you can see past the "old" hotel, the restored part is simply beautiful. The seafood buffet on Friday night was wonderful, the staff was friendly. Once completed, it will bring back true southern hospitality.

    Nightmare at the Campbell House Inn

    from

    The Campbell House Inn may be under renovations but it probably should have been torn down and rebuilt. The pictures shown on the internet are definitely not what I saw when I arrived. The main lobby seems to have been redone and the staff is pleasent enough, however before we even got the our room I informed my husband we would not be staying there.

    The outside of the building is very run down, the elevator to our floor was filthy, the carpets where old, the ceiling had water stains, all this before entering the room. Upon entering the room I was appalled that they would even rent it out. The couch was in complete disarray, the curtains were torn from the rod and hanging off, the wall paper was peeling away from the walls, it smelled terrible and the bathroom was from another era. All in all I would not recommend the Campbell House Inn.

    Up and coming

    from

    The Campbell house was in the middle of renovating. The lobby and dining room had just been completed and were absolutely beautiful. If the rest of the hotel is going to look like that, it's going to be great. The staff was very helpful. I recommend!

    ... pulled pork in Kentucky bbq sauce, corn fritters, coleslaw, and baked beans. It came with a side of mini corn breads and everything was freaking amazing. Thank goodness we split the plate because it was massive and we couldn’t even finish it when we shared. Even though we were stuffed while Chris drank a bourbon I ordered dessert. It was a chocolate pecan pie with ice cream and it was divine. I officially had to be rolled out of there but ...

We had vegs too but those were the highlight for me. Today we are going to Keenland for fall horse racing, and then the high school football game tonight. I will finally get to see the bands show. Really looking forward to that too. I will add pictures so you can enjoy them ...
