The Campbell House Lexington today joins Curio – A Collection by Hilton, Hilton Worldwide’s rapidly-expanding global collection of distinctive upscale and luxury hotels that caters to passionate travelers seeking local discovery and authentic experiences. The Campbell House Lexington, Curio Collection by Hilton is owned and developed by Rockbridge Capital and managed by HP Hotel Management, Inc.
The Campbell House Lexington is nestled in the heart of horse country with local roots spanning more than six decades. Touting more than $10 million in guest room renovations, Rockbridge is proud to pay homage to the hotel’s location deep in the heart of Kentucky. Conveniently located minutes from downtown Lexington, the hotel is just four miles from the legendary Keeneland Race Course, and moments away from University of Kentucky and numerous shops, restaurants and entertainment venues.
“The spirit of our individual hotels define Curio, and it is an honor to add The Campbell House to our ever-growing collection,” said Dianna Vaughan, global head, Curio – A Collection by Hilton. “It is clear why guests continue to return year after year to this charming Southern hotel, loved for its traditional colonial style architecture, welcoming front porch and distinctive personality.”
Construction on the hotel began in 1949, and the two-story building opened its doors to the public in 1951 as The Campbell House Motor Inn. By the early 1970s, the hotel began its process of transforming into a glamorous destination with the addition of a pool and dining room. In 1979, the hotel added guest rooms, a fine dining restaurant and a world class lounge, The Barrel Room. After decades of evolving – including surviving a fire in 1986 – the hotel’s service, allure and deep history are setting the stage to welcome a new beginning as part of the Hilton Worldwide portfolio.
“We are excited to have The Campbell House Lexington in our growing portfolio,” said Jim Merkel, CEO and founding partner of Rockbridge Capital. “Our vision is to provide remarkable experiences, and Curio – A Collection by Hilton is the perfect fit for the hotel’s distinctive design and emphasis on local discovery.”
