Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Lexington Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Lexington, KY discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Lexington hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Lexington was first founded in 1775, although the city wasn't officially chartered until 1782. By the early 19th century, Lexington's population was booming. Residents referred to their city as The Athens of the West. With this history, it's no surprise that many sites in Lexington are on the National Register of Historic Places, including an African Cemetery (The Cemetery of the Union Benevolent Society No. 2), the James Allen House, Ashland Park Historic District, the John C. Breckinridge Memorial, Christ Church Episcopal, and the Confederate Memorial Monument on West Main Street.

Travelers flock to the city for its deep-seated Bluegrass culture, horse-related attractions, historic museums, local breweries, and sports venues. Whatever your reasons for visiting Lexington, finding the right hotel can allow you to enjoy all the attractions the city has to offer.

When to Visit Lexington, Kentucky

Kentucky has mild weather year-round, with four distinct seasons. Fall is a glorious time to visit as the leaves turn various shades of red, orange, and yellow. Keep in mind, however, that most of the horse farms are at their busiest during the fall, especially in October during one of the city's high visitation seasons. To save some money on your accommodations and avoid the crowds, plan your autumn visit in September or November instead.

Spring is also a busy time, thanks to Lexington's outdoor attractions. With flowers and pleasant weather, spring visits enable you to miss the hottest summer months. Hotel rates tend to go up in May, but March and April always offer better prices, making them the best months to visit.

Lexington's low season is from January to February when the weather is cold. Accumulation is rare, but don't be surprised if you see snow during this time of year. While winter isn't the best time for experiencing the city's outdoor attractions, you'll still enjoy the lowest rates and least amount of crowds.

May to August in Lexington is bustling. While Kentucky is an affordable state to visit, hotel rates tend to be higher during the summer months, so budget accordingly.
