Modern Luxury


444 Parkway Drive, Lexington, Kentucky 40504

Step into Elwood, and you step into that unique yet familiar space. A place where you want to stay, set in a community you want to explore. We believe fun is beautiful and invite you to experience the Bluegrass here. We’ve thoughtfully curated our hotel with color and details to help you feel part of our Kentucky community. 

From that first greeting to that last drink at the bar, we want you to feel at home here. Our hotel is more than a landing place, it’s a lifestyle.

Features & Amenities

  • Pets Welcome: Your best furry friend deserves a comfortable stay too. We offer food and water bowls, cozy pet beds, yummy treats, and lots of snuggles.
  • Fitness: Keep up with your workouts in our fitness center. Located on the ground floor of Elwood, our facility is fully equipped with everything you need to get your sweat on or to stretch it out. Prefer to get outside? Running trails, bike paths, and a golf course are all nearby. 
  • Neighborhood: Situated in the heart of Lexington, Elwood is your home base to explore the region’s favorite spots. Our hotel near the University of Kentucky is minutes away from that basketball game at Rupp Arena and the best distilleries on the bourbon trail. A short drive lands you in horse country with Instagram-worthy scenes of rolling hills, stone fences, and majestic barns. Keeneland and countless other adventures are just a few miles away. 
  • All the Extras: Creature comforts are a must when traveling. We think you deserve to have it all when you stay with us – wants and needs.
