Surly desk agent. Passed out drunk guy in the lobby. Group of drunk, loud and swearing people huddled around the door way. Brown stuff on the walls behind the bed, severely stained carpeting in room. People coming and going at all hours. Neighborhood marginal at best with various "interesting" characters roaming around. Right next to very loud highway but, hey,... More

Stained carpeting, ,mold growing on the bathroom ceiling, bathroom door was coming off of the hinges and required 2 hands to get it latched - staff acknowledged knowing the facility was in poor shape, but made no apologies or effort to make the experience better.

I'm very sorry you had a poor experience at our hotel. The bathroom door and ceiling have been taken care of, we appreciate you bringing that to our attention. We have just started a major renovation, and even though the carpet has been cleaned recently it is in need of replacement which will happen when we totally redo all the... More

The hotel looked pretty standard on the outside. The lobby was nice. The room was a bit dated and simple looking. But the room did have a balcony and a great view of the riverfront which was amazing! The hotel is perfectly located just across the bridge from Cincinnati in Covington, KY. Just far enough out of the city to... More

The staff was generous, and the 360 Restaurant was excellent. We even enjoyed the swimming pool and whirlpool. However, the rooms were dirty, and we had to switch rooms twice because they weren't satisfactory to us. There were stains on the bed and the furniture. Also, there was peeling wallpaper.

Hotel was dated. Shuttle service was not good. Dropped us off at destination (Great American Ball Park) and was unavailable at end of game to shuttle us and other customers back to hotel. Was told to take Trolly or cab by desk. Room was clean. Enjoyed sleep number beds. Kelly's closed earlier than posted. Service at restaurant was good. Charged... More

I've stayed in Cincinnati before, but never on the Covington side of the river. The hotel is very nice and clean, with nothing alarmingly wrong (other than being in a rather shady area) The parking garage was a little dimly lit, and if I wasn't with my girlfriend, I would be uncomfortable with her walking alone in the garage, but...

In all honesty I feel this should be a hotel priced at about $74.00/night at best. The money is clearly spent in the lobby and the rooms are left to deteriorate. Bathroom was either dirty or stained - I couldn't tell. Mattress was in need of replacement and the whole room smelled musty and just old. Needs a rehaul and/or... More

On behalf of our entire staff at Radisson we apologize for the concerns you shared about your experience at this hotel. The carpet and tub are stained, all the carpets were just cleaned in August. The hotel has just started a multi-million dollar renovation that will see the rooms totally redone as well as much of the public space. new... More

Room was nice and clean but mattress' were a little funky. Some ice machines were out of order as was the whirlpool at the pool. Pool could have been cleaner but it is the end of pool season. Wi-Fi was spotty. Overall nice hotel. Breakfest buffet @ Kelly's was pretty good.

We went there for our first anniversary and to see the WEBN fireworks. I wish we had gone elsewhere. It was dirty, loud, overpriced, broken down, with cigarette burns in the chair in a nonsmoking room, including filthy floors and walls, dirty tub... NEVER again. Chefs were knowledgable about food ingredients, however.

I am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay at our hotel. I apologize for the condition of your room this experience was obviously not up to the usual Radisson standards. We are starting to undergo a large multi-million dollar renovation that should be completed early next year. The rooms will be totally renovated as well as much of... More
