A Lovely stay
"The room was clean, the front desk very helpful, and the breakfast bar was wonderful. I will stay there again."
Lisa from Ashland, KY US rated Embassy Suites Hotel Lexington 9 out of 10 on April 23, 2013
"You completely spoiled us. We went on to Nashville Embassy at Airport and it could not compare to Lexington Embassy. Your pool had lots of towels, gently rolled and at each table. The fitness center was up to date and everything worked. Breakfast was great . The restaurant area was very private and quiet. Thank you for a great night's stay."
Donetta from Siloam Springs, AR US rated Embassy Suites Hotel Lexington 10 out of 10 on July 23, 2004
