Kentucky’s racing heritage inspires Embassy Suites renovation

In Kentucky, the Embassy Suites by Hilton completed a $7.7-million renovation of the Hilton Suites Lexington Green and rebranded the hotel as the Embassy Suites by Hilton Lexington Green. The property-wide renovation included a revamp of the guestrooms and public spaces, paying homage to Kentucky’s heritage of thoroughbred racing and bourbon, with modern touches incorporated. 

Quorum Hotels & Resorts acquired the 174-guestroom hotel in June 2016 with plans to implement a renovation and rebranding program. The hotel is located near Blue Grass Airport and Keeneland Racetrack.

Embassy Suites by Hilton Lexington Green has suites with a separate bedroom and living room that can accommodate four people.
