    Enveloped by the rolling meadows of Bluegrass country, the Griffin Gate Marriott hotel provides an oasis, located close to area highways, yet secluded enough for you to experience the resort's scenic ambiance. Within the hotel's grounds is a meticulously restored 19th century antebellum manor, called the Mansion. At Griffin Gate you can play a Rees Jones-designed golf course, indulge in a treatment at The Spa at Griffin Gate, or relax poolside.
