Now a Hilton, Downtown Lexington Hotel Reopens

Following a $13 million renovation and re-branding, the Lexington Downtown Hotel & Conference Center in downtown Lexington, Ky., has reopened as the new Hilton Lexington/Downtown, it announced last week.

The 367-room hotel began renovations in March and so far has completed work on half of its guest rooms—all of which will eventually be completely refurbished—and all of its interior public spaces, including its lobby, on-site restaurant and atrium, as well as its ballroom and meeting rooms.

Work on the hotel's remaining guest rooms is expected to be complete next year.
