The bedroom area of a suite room at the Hilton Suites at Lexington Green, the day before it opened to the public, July 30, 1987. The $14 million hotel was the Hilton Hotels Corp.'s first franchised all- suites hotel in the nation. The hotel, with its 174 suites, is part of Lexington Green, a $47 million project developed by the Webb Cos. on Nicholasville Road. Lexington Green also contains a shopping center and a six-story office building. When the hotel opened, rates ranged from $65 per night to $125 per night. The Governor's Suite was $250 per night. It was the second all-suite hotel to open in Lexington. In 1985, the Residence Inn opened off Newtown Pike. Photo by Frank Anderson | staff
