From the time of Check-in until the day we left the staff was outstanding! Ready to help with any inconvenience with a friendly smile. Excellent Valet Service, never had to wait more than a few minutes or less, even in inclement weather. Location for our purposes was excellent, not to far from Kentucky and not to far from the University... More

This is a wonderful hotel and a great location. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. It was perfect. It is modern. They have valet parking but you can park free at the meter parking after 9pm. This was perfect!!

For the money I can't imagine a better value. A whole suite, with a VERY comfortable king sized bed and a kitchen for less than a plain hotel room in a good location.
