This is a nice hotel that is very convenient if you're visiting downtown Cincinnati. The room was nice and quiet but the window shade did not cover the light very well and room itself was a little small and dated. The bathroom on the other hand was spacious with two sinks and a garden tub. Nothing is free, no fridge...

I stayed here for one night and LOVED it! My room was huge with a great bed (slept for 10.5 hours without even trying) and wonderful tub. It's a little odd and inconvenient that not every floor has an ice machine, but that was really my only complaint. Walking distance from lots of downtown Cincinnati attractions.

What can I say? The Cincinnatian has been around for quite some time. The rooms are clean but the hotel décor is starting to show some wear. It is especially noticeable in the couches outside the elevators. However, I LOVE the double head shower, large rooms and location. I love walking downtown and discovering new places. The jazz band on...

This was the most expensive night of our holiday, I booked 3 rooms at this hotel. The welcome was uninspiring and generally not very warm. They said they needed to authorise $100 on each of the rooms despite me saying that only our room (the parents) may use additional services. They said that was policy, so $300 held for up...

Stayed one night on a couples overnight trip. Nice historic hotel that is beautiful on the inside. Staff were great. The rooms are a little small compares to modern hotels but it had a comfortable bed and was clean.

Stay here for one night during an official visit. The hotel is located in Downtown Cincinnati and about two blocks from the Federal Building. The hotel is extraordinarily clean and luxuriously furnished to the extent that there is another flat screen television in the bathroom. In addition, the staff members were very courteous and friendly.

The room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom in the King whirlpool suite was luxurious and the highlight of our stay! Both the doorman and front desk staff were friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

My husband and I arrived for his 30th birthday and upon arrival, we were taken to a room that was filthy. The carpets had big black spots on it, and the chair in the room had a brown looking film on it. My husband is far from a clean freak ,and he said he would not even take his shoes...

The rooms had been reovated since our last visit but about all we can say! Left our luggage at the desk so we could check in when we were finished with the Reds game. Upon return at 4:20 PM they still do not have a room ready for us with a check and time of 3 PM. We had to...
