Since 21C opened its doors, it has become the best place to stay for my regular business trips to Cinci. It has a funky edge to go with great service and all the amenities. Used to stay at Cincinnatian, which is nice but old and staid feeling in comparison.

We just returned from a 3 nite stay, this was our first visit to Cincinnati and I selected this hotel based on previous reviews. We were two couples ,The reason for our trip was to see the current production of "Jane eyre" at the Cincinnati playhouse in the park. The hotel is a bit stark but the warmth invoked by...

The 21c is by far the nicest hotel in Cincinnati; love how different it is from the moment you walk in the door with the modern art and funky lobby. Rooms and beds are very comfortable. And the Metropole restaurant is amazing. I won't stay anywhere else when I'm in Cincinnati!

Ok, full disclosure, I was celebrating NOT having cancer, so a trip to a strip mine would have been right on! but this place was so cool. We drank wine at the attached restaurant, snacked on hors d'oeuvres, and spent hours staring at the artwork. Literally hours. It's not a place I would take children, unless they are really REALLY...

Love the 21 C hotel concept. Artwork is displayed well and combines a variety of interesting themes from portraiture to sculpture. Plenty to do in the surrounding area but hotel is a destination in itself, you can spend plenty of time admiring artwork and eating very good, local food. I am noise sensitive, but not an issue here - very...

Great beds, service and loved the art & spa. A bit pricey. Metropole burger & fries were savory and best I've had in a while. Enjoyed our stay! No issues. Very clean too. Did hear some noises from other rooms in our room that woke us up.

Thank you for sharing feedback about your recent stay. I was glad to read about the many things you liked but we are sorry for any disturbances you experienced. The Metropole burger is popular with many on our team, so there's not much chance it'll be rotating off the menu anytime soon. We look forward to welcoming you again!

We enjoyed the artwork, and the modern take on the rooms. The staff professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. The restaurant was enjoyable, and the food was good. They are very accommodating on altering recipes. Loved the turn down service, and the complimentary water. The gallery was intriguing.
