I will definitely choose H.I. Riverfront as my go to for the Cincinnati area. The location is great for nightlife, sporting events or conventions in Kentucky or Cincinnati. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean and nice.

Our room was very spacious and immaculate. The rooms were well appointed but the carpet in the hallway, while in good shape, was not my taste. The elevators were a little crowded and slow but otherwise our stay was very pleasant with a very accommodating staff. That being said, we will definitely stay there again.

Nice modern hotel. I was told we would have a room with a view of the Ohio River and a beautiful view of the Cincinnati skyline. In reality, all you can see is the back side of the levee along the Ohio River. Hotel is nice but don't fall for the "view"!!! Location was "ok", but the price was higher...

This a pretty typical Inn. The rooms are large and comfortable. It is in a quiet location. They serve a hot breakfast that is fine. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is that they are renovating and things are kind of hectic.

Hotel room was clean and comfortable. It appeared as though our room and the hallway had been recently renovated. Everything was in working order. Only complaint we had was that the water in the shower did not get much more than just "warm". Check in went smooth. Bar area was nice, but pretty busy and bartender could use some help...

A bit shabby. All outlets did not work, which made charging multiple devices difficult. View was to interior court with very bright light. Hard to sleep. Nice staff though and breakfast was sufficient.

Stayed here for two nights for a football game. Rooms were nice but hallways needed some modernizing. Good place to stay and watch a football game without a lot of frills. Lots of fast food restaurants in the area.

We enjoyed our stay at this property. It is an interesting place, very old in some respects but in the midst of a nice renovation. One warning, there are not really any true "river view" rooms at this property. If you do have a back-facing room and you crane your neck way around to the right out the window, you...

We found the hotel pretty easily with google maps. Noticed outside in the back parking lot an RV with table and chairs set up.
