LEXINGTON, KY—Elwood Hotel & Suites, 444 Parkway Drive, has opened its doors in Lexington, Kentucky, the world-renowned home of award-winning Thoroughbred horses. Following a multimillion-dollar renovation and rebranding, Elwood was birthed to engage community, giving, and to highlight the undeniable heart and soul of contemporary southern living.
“Being from Lexington, it was really important to celebrate the region’s lifestyle and beauty without compromising its rich history and traditions,” said co-owner David Bader. “We are excited to create a place where Lexingtonians can connect with friends and family and travelers can engage and experience local life.”
As part of a grassroots effort, Elwood established the Elwood Social Club to actively raise awareness and support various, local organizations. The program highlights a different organization monthly, culminating in a social event the final Saturday with a percentage of that evening’s revenue from the hotel and its restaurant, Fiddletree Kitchen & Bar, donated to the featured organization. October’s endorsement of the Lexington Humane Society will culminate in a family-friendly Halloween-themed event on Oct. 30, 2021
The hotel has 62 spacious rooms, including extended stay residential suites with separate living spaces. Rooms and common spaces have been smartly styled with bold colors, whimsical vintage accents and contemporary décor that pay homage to Lexington’s rich history. Striking hand painted floral murals by Canadian artist, Alixandra Jade, are woven throughout the interior and exterior.
A wide array of amenity and accommodation options reflect Elwood’s strong commitment to wellness including extensive natural light, air-purifying live greenery, a spacious fitness facility, and pet-friendly accommodations. Additionally, outdoor and cultural excursions through partnerships will be introduced to provide travelers the opportunity to experience peace, beauty, and fun the region has to offer.
