Griffin Gate KY Marriott Finishes Manor Restoration

LEXINGTON, KY — The Mansion at Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa has completed renovations. The 19th century antebellum manor in Lexington has undergone a facelift to make it the perfect venue for weddings, receptions and other private events.

Originally built in 1854, The Mansion recently finished updates at a $200,000 price tag. In addition to all-new trompe l’oeil wallpaper and paint colors in crisp cedar, dogwood, burr oak and blue ash — giving the interior a more light and airy feel — the carpet was pulled up to uncover original white oak floors, refinished to revive their original beauty. The front columns were restored as well. Lights were restored or replaced with new, ornate sconces, chandeliers and pendants. Soft textures, lacquered finishes and gilded accents now highlight the spaces. Other fresh touches include new bathroom tile and new carpet on the second floor.

Accommodating groups of 20 to 300 people, the exclusive venue at one of the largest Lexington, Kentucky hotels hosts elegant corporate functions, holiday parties and wedding celebrations throughout the year. With two floors of indoor space and a connecting patio, event planners can make the most of The Mansion’s beautiful Southern surroundings for outdoor wedding ceremonies or extravagant celebrations under the stars followed by exceptional receptions indoors. Expert event staff are on hand to help coordinate bakers, DJs, florists and more, and customized catering selections are available from an experienced team of culinary professionals.

Before or after a gathering, event attendees can take full advantage of everything Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa has to offer, including The Spa at Griffin Gate and Griffin Gate Golf Club, offering 18 renovated holes across 220 acres of rolling Lexingtonlandscape. Visitors can also savor hearty meals at JW’s Steakhouse and Lounge, light fare at 19th Hole and Top Deck, and popular beverages and complimentary Wi-Fi access at Starbucks. Event planners can reserve blocks of 10 or more contemporary rooms featuring locally inspired décor, flat-panel TVs and plush bedding with cozy comforters, luxurious linens and piles of fluffy pillows.
