Marriott Opens Residence Inn in Lexington

A new Residence Inn by Marriott hotel has opened in Lexington, Ky., with 104 guest suites and 800 square feet of meeting space, Marriott International announced last month.

Located four miles from Bluegrass Airport, the Residence Inn Lexington Keeneland/Airport offers studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites designed for stays of five nights or more, as well as amenities such as an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool spa, an onsite exercise room and a "social room."

"We are pleased with the continued growth of Residence Inn hotels in the Lexington area," Residence Inn Vice President Katie Tyson said in a statement. "This new hotel was designed to be a home away from home and provides a residential atmosphere and specious accommodations for guest comfort."

The Residence Inn Lexington Keeneland/Airport is Marriott's third Lexington-area Residence Inn and its ninth in Kentucky.
