The New 21c Museum Hotel: Lexington, Kentucky

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

On our last trip to Kentucky, we stayed at the 21c Museum Hotel in Lexington. It's right downtown, walkable to everything, and only turned a year old last month.

Upon entrance: this SOFTlab Spectralline light sculpture

Our room -- comfortable but not plush, and for whatever reason didn't come across as quite as much fun or quirky as our 21c room in Bentonville

There were TCHO chocolates on the bed, and Malin and Goetz bath products

Shugie was with us on this trip, and he got to move the blue penguins around -- here on the elevator

and another was thoughtfully delivered to our room by a staffer so we played around for a while
