Lexington to get new 21c Museum Hotel

The front page of the April 10, 2012 Lexington Herald-Leader reports that the old First National Bank building on Main Street in Lexington has been bought and will become a 21c Museum Hotel.

Great news! The mayor is calling it a "game-changer" and I totally agree.

I've always thought that Lexington offered nothing special when it came to hotels. Not one of the local hotels distinguish themselves from the rest.

This is going to change that. It is going to shake up the hotel and restaurant scene.

If you're familiar with the Louisville property's red penguins-----the paper is reporting that Lexington will get blue penguins.

OK...it took me 5 minutes to "get" the BLUE penguins.

This is awesome news! I have been in the Louisville 21C a couple times, but never slept there. Now that i have a kid headed to UK, I cant wait to be one of their first guests.

Congrats on the National Championship by the way!

This story continues to make front-page news today----with a cover photo of an urban county councilman with his arms wrapped around a blue penguin.

This is big....

I can see us someday having dinner at A la Lucie, enjoying a movie at The KY Theatre, then returning to a room at the 21c----all within walking distance of each other.

Bring it on.....

(The Louisville 21c was named the number 1 hotel in the United States two years in a row by readers of Conde Nast magazine.)
