Opening the doors of this hotel on this specific weekend feels incredibly magical. We are so thrilled to welcome guests just in time for the most exciting 2 minutes in sports—and hope that we can create an experience that lasts much longer in your hearts. If there’s any way I can make your stay and your trip to the 149th annual Kentucky Derby better, don’t hesitate to ask.
