I was just there for a two-day conference and a single night's stay, but the hotel did a wonderful job providing a meeting space and meals. The room was comfortable and beautifully furnished. The staff also went above and beyond when I forgot a pair of sunglasses in my room and only realized it after checking out. The staff was...

We stayed for three nights to participate in Run the Bluegrass and do some sight-seeing. We really liked the Makers Mark samples when we arrived. The hotel and room was great. Nothing to complain about. A very quiet stay. Well, sometimes I would hear the people in the room next to us, but never at night when we were trying...

I had a rather small room with 2 queen beds, desk and lounge chair but it was beautifully appointed. There was plenty of room out of the way next to the desk for a small refrigerator and microwave but there was none. I do understand the refrigerators can be requested. Nice indoor swimming pool.

This hotel is an older Marriott property. We stayed for one night on the way through, and we picked it because of the indoor pool area which our kids loved. I enjoyed the large hot tub, but the pool was very cold. Because of the property's age, the rooms are small and the bathroom is one of the tiniest I...

The staff was FANTASTIC helping create a special atmosphere in the circa 1860's antebellum mansion. We used the entire main level of the mansion. We had a professional photography team taking photos and videos in the Dogwood room, we had drinks and hor d'oeuvres in another and dinner served in the larger. All three fireplaces were activated for the evening....

Very nice hotel. The lobby is a great first impression. We were upgraded to the hospitality suite which provided us more than enough room, and was awesome to have two bathrooms. Would definitely stay again!

Definitely not a 5 star - restrooms older fixtures but property was nice. I felt like my bed leaned and so did another colleague but probably due to memory foam needed to be more centered. Gym got really warm. Service was good, I had a broken tub spout and a colleague had a broken electrical outlet. They made it right...
