Started out early as neither Sandy or I could sleep. Roused the kids (Robyn at the time was almost 5 and Alex had just turned 2) and were on the road by 5 AM. Filled up for gas just outside of Woodstock and crossed over the Detroit border by 7:45. Quickly got lost, luckily the Detroit road map pointed us back in the right direction. Grabbed a quick …

Building Excitement

A travel blog entry by thespeck

Caroline and I were married last July 6th and this weekend we are looking to celebrate it by getting out of town. I thought, 4th of July weekend, where would be better than Washington DC. I have not been to DC since I was in high school but thought that a weekend of museums, history and fireworks could be fun. Plus it is only an 8 hour drive from home.

Walking Through the Door

A travel blog entry by thelabelmaker

... the plane ride, the length of time, the food, the people, the accommodations, etc. That was when my legs started to shake. I feel that God puts a block on my processing when big doors open in front of me. That way when I finally do start to process what door I actually entered, it almost seems too late to turn around because I see what great things were behind it all ...

This time we're taking the scenic route, no freeways! Hey, the Mini is running great! I keep a close eye on the fuel gage and keep the tank full. Our little Mini just hums along without skipping a beat. Until tomorrow, ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Griffin Gate Resort Lexington

    Hair all over the place!

    from

    My husband & I stayed at this Marriott for one night - the hotel has a very 1970's feel to it. It is also reminiscent of a family beach-type lodging from the smells and children running around in swimsuits. We arrived very late at night and the check-in process was easy and the staff friendly. But the room was an absolute disgrace. From our first view of the bathroom, there were particles of hair all in the bathrub, on top of the toilet and the counter. We cleaned everything and wiped it down. We were incredibly exhausted and were looking forward to sleeping on the Temperpedic bed. However, once again when we lifted the sheet, there was hair on the bed! We debated if we should call down but because we were so fatiged, we placed a blanket on the bed with the sheet over the fitted sheet. The bed was comfortable and at check-out, we told the clerk about the room and she was nice enough to pay for the room - which we greatly appreciated. But, any AAA 4-star lodging should never have this kind of problem. Overall, we doubt we will stay at this Marriott again.

    Very nice time

    from

    I stayed twice at this resort beginning of august.

    I enjoyed the location that was so easy to find.

    Once in the lobby, i was glad it wasn't the typical marble entrance.

    Staff was very courteous, even if a bit slow to aknowledge our arrival.

    The bedrooms, decorated in green tones felt very countryside like and the best of the best were the matresses.

    First night we went to the mansion, food was excellent, not original, but excellent. I had my best creme brulee (in the US) there.

    Following nights we had dinner at the garden within the resort.

    I wish it was closer to PIttsburgh to go there more often.

    Best Hotel In Lexington, KY

    from

    We had a wonderful stay at the Marriott Griffin Gate July 23-25! The mgr. on duty when we checked in, (and when we made our reservations) was John, and he was so friendly and welcoming! Everyone from the bell staff to the restaurant staff was SUPER-friendly! The rooms were very recently updated, the carpet and bedding were just like new, and the selection of t.v. channels can't be beat. We had dinner at the Mansion next door, and it was a top-quality dining experience. (the chef even ran 'next door' to get chicken fingers for my 6 yr. old ) The Pegasus Lounge had an awesome band on the Sat. nite of our stay, and we enjoyed the drinks and dance floor. We normally stay at the Ritz Carlton hotels when we travel, and the Marriott G. Gate was top-notch in the areas of updated decor, (while maintaining a vintage feel to the lobby) friendliness and excellent customer service!

    Among the best Lexington has to offer

    from

    I have stayed at Griffin Gate on several occasions--primarily to attend multi-day business conferences. The resort is conveneiently located off I-64 and is a relatively short drive from downtown Lexington....there is plenty of free parking in front of the hotel's main building...the lobby and public areas are spacious and clean ...lots of stone and wood give it a casual, elegant feel....the bar can seem somewhat small--especially if you're with a large group (as has often been the case during my visits)...the food and service at the restautants in the hotel are satisfactory--though not outstanding--typical Marriott hotel dining....the Mansion at Griffin Gate is located on the grounds next to the main hotel building and offers a more up-scale dining experience....the guest rooms I've stayed in have always been clean, spacious and comfortable--many of the rooms have a great view of the 18 hole golf course on the grounds....the hotel also offers indoor and outdoor pools, along with a well-equipped workout room....the conference facilities and staff are excellent and Griffin Gate has always been a popular site for our conferences....however, if you want to enjoy some local off-site dining in the area, you will have to get in your car and drive into central Lexington--most of the restaurants near Griffin Gate are in the fast food or "Cracker Barrel" category (unless, of course, that's what you're looking for).

    Nice Facilities at a good price

    from

    We had never been to Northern Kentuckey and wanted a clean full service hotel in a good location. The Griffin Gate met and surpassed our expectation. It was modestly priced at $89 and yet had all the facilities and services a person would need. It was neat and clean and looked recently built or renovated. It was central to the Northern Kentuckey area and the service was impeccable. Great place to stay!

    Decent hotel, convenient to freeway

    from

    We drive between St Louis and Washington DC frequently, and Lexington is an occasional stop-over point. The Marriot location was very convenient for us, just a bit off Rte 64 in a pleasant, somewhat rural-feeling area (the Marriot borders on a large golf-course). The hotel design was "the Jetsons meet the Flintstones" with a combination of stone and sixties modern design--really kind of fun. The front-desk guy was friendly and humorous (we checked in at 2 am) and someone brought a toothbrush and paste up to our room when we were missing one.

    The bed was sooo comfortable!

    from

    i have stayed here twice, and the second time around was better since they are almost done with their renovations. it looks GREAT inside, the room is very nice and spacious. The bed is one of the most comfortable beds I've slept on, it's one of those new special mattresses. Good variety of fitness room equipment. i tried one of the restaurants and the service was very attentive and the food was good and prices very reasonable for hotel fare.

    Ruined an Evening

    from

    The beautiful romantic candlelight dinner a deux in our room was interrupted 10 minutes after it was served by a telephone call asking if we were done with the dinner cart yet. A prompt complaint was wholly ignored. This was Valentine's Day 2001 and I am still annoyed.

    Great Getaway

    Spent the weekend with my family. Very friendly staff. Impressive lobby. Nice pool. Bathroom could have been cleaner. Would recommend.
