Set in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass region, Lexington is known as the “Horse Capitol of the World” with good cause; legendary equestrian races were run in both Keeneland Racecourse and Kentucky Horse Park.

I've stayed here several times in the past, generally after a day at Keeneland and only for 1 night per stay. I've always been completely satisfied with everything; however, on this particular trip[More]
(4/18/2015) I requested a late checkout and was denied for no specific reason. I simply called the front desk late that evening and asked if I could have a later checkout time to which the reply was simply "No." I then said I was only interested in an extra hour (12 noon instead of 11am) and received the same response at which point I ended the conversation. The only reason I was taken aback was because I've requested late checkouts at this specific hotel in previous stays and have always been met with a friendly, "Sure, what time did you have in mind? or Sure, could you be out by 1pm?." In any case, I found that a little discouraging. [Less]
