This is my second visit (only because of an event i was part of). After a year, the lobby has been updated and is nice. There is still an extreme lack of seating in the conference area. Seriously, events tend to have people milling about and there are only one or 2 lone chairs.

I am very sorry to hear that you had issues during your stay. Our housekeeping staff is in the process of checking each of the 4 rooms rented by your school to find the issues you mention and ensure they have been corrected. I also want to assure you that we will work closely with the contact of the group to see if they want to add additional chairs to the set up for next year. Our stationary seating is limited because the events hosted in our meeting space vary by type. Each event may require different set up and seating needs. However we can add as many chairs and tables as the group contact request. I would also like to once again apologize for the paint odor in the hallways. We have spoken to the contractors working on the renovation and discussed protocols for future events. I truly apologize for the unpleasant odor and discomfort.

This is a large facility in a very convenient location. They had the network connectivity that we needed and were very flexible during our two days of meetings with additional attendees showing up and having to add or change counts for various things. The business office team

We've held an annual conference at the Clarion Hotel on Newtown Pike, Lexington, Ky for over 10 years. They have accommodated us at every turn and I have no hesitation recommending them as a place to stay. Great people to work with and look forward to many more years

I'm a repeat guest here b/c it's usually amazing with my late night airport arrival. They always take great care of me until the rental cars open in the morning & I can drive to Somerset. HOWEVER, I trusted them to provide same hospitality to my parents today & they've been

I am so sorry to hear that your parents had to wait for the shuttle. I want to assure you that our goal is to always offer fast efficient service to all of our guests. I will work with our front desk staff to ensure that we are taking calls and request for shuttle service and arranging transportation in a timely manner. Once again I apologize and I hope that you will consider staying with us again in the near future so we can have another opportunity to provide you with the service you deserve.

This Clarion has a host of pictures that do not paint an accurate picture of the hotel. Enjoy the hot tub, pool, the arcade games and weight room! Just to be clear, you'll be disappointed when you get there. Nearly everything was closed off for renovations during my week long

I am very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay. I know that renovation can be inconvenient which is why we have worked to do the improvements by sections of the hotel. We just opened our brand new hot tub, sauna, fitness room, and restrooms in the pool area. And we are now working on the new basketball court and video game area however while we construct the new amenities the old ones are still open and usable. I would love the chance to speak to you personally so I can determine when you stayed and in what room so we can address your concerns directly. We truly value your opinion and hope that you will consider staying with us again so we can show you the finished product with all of the great changes currently taking place. Kindest regards,

The pool “area” said “No animals”. However, I think that you can pay extra and bring an animal.

What is the shuttle schedule to the airport from the hotel?
The complimentary airport shuttle runs 24 hours every hour on the hour. For example it runs at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, etc. Please call the hotel once you land and we will send someone to pick you up.

Sports Bar is next door to the hotel. Also there is a restaurant. If I remember correctly when you go in the sports bar is to the left and the restaurant to the right all in the same building.

"It's always safer to choose higher floors. I had no problem with noise however and I was on a bottom level."
"There is a central pool and restaurant, if you like quite, ask for the back of the hotel"
"rooms near the lobby"
"Long walk to get places if you are in the outer section. Place is spread out."
"be sure to get a room in the newly remodeled section....not the pet friendly section, they are old"
