During a recent business trip, I spent three nights at the Hilton Lexington Green in Lexington, Kentucky. Upon arrival at about 3:30pm, we were told that our rooms were not yet available. After inquiring what time check in is, we were told 3pm but that they were very busy and had many late check outs. We were given a voucher for two (one each) free drinks in the bar to occupy us for the hour it was going to take to get our rooms ready. After the hour, only one room was ready so we waited there until they brought us the key for the other room.

The rooms in this hotel are all suites so they have a nice entry/seating/office area with a flat screen tv, sink and refrigerator, sleeper sofa and desk. In the bedroom, there was a large red stain on the floor. I didn't over analyze it but it appeared like it might be lipstick. In the bathroom, there were a few random hairs in the bath tub. The next morning, I noticed that the coffee maker did not work very well and the coffee cups were very dusty.

There is a $9.95 per 24 hours fee for Internet access.

The first night, the hotel was hosting a Mary Kay convention. It was held in the atrium of the hotel so basically, it was outside of all of the rooms and VERY noisy but it concluded around 9:30. My room overlooked a shopping plaza which included a bar where they were having live music so when the Mary Kay crowd quieted down, you could hear the music out back. However, it too ended about 10pm or so.

All that being said, the hotel was actually very quiet in terms that you could not hear people running up ad down hallways nor could you hear toilets flushing or neighboring alarms ringing.

My business was being conducted at the University of Kentucky Medical Center which was just 3 miles away and on the same road as the hotel so it was VERY easily accessible and the area around the hotel had MANY options for eating and shopping.

Overall, the pros probably outweighed the cons but if I travel to this area again, I will probably explore other hotel options before returning to the Hilton Lexington Green.
