The owners of the Hilton in downtown Lexington announced Thursday that they have completed the $13 million renovation of the property that began in March 2009. With the renovation finished, the hotel donated the remaining items from its previous decor, including dozens of linen sheets, bedspreads, coffee makers and radios, to the Hope Center, according to a statement.

The renovation included updates to the hotel's 367 rooms, as well as the lobby, atrium, meeting spaces, Triangle Grille restaurant and Bigg Blue Martini lounge.
