The Setting

In the heart of Lexington sits the colorful Elwood Hotel. Named after the first female-owned and bred horse to win the Kentucky Derby, you’ll find that same trailblazing spirit seeping out of every nook and cranny at this 62-room boutique hotel.

Its prime location situates you at the foot of Lexington’s vibrant local scene, where you’ll find farmers' markets, distilleries, bakeries and boutiques by the score. Step out a little bit further into the Bluegrass State’s diverse topography and you’ll be surrounded by Instagram-worthy rolling hills, stone fences and majestic barns as well as miles of hiking and biking trails through verdant landscape (don’t forget miles and miles of the Bourbon Trail to explore, too).
