The hotel is right on the interstate not the river. It's very loud! The air is on a timer and cuts off and the room gets hot. I called for a fan and was told they did not have one. I was told its a short walk to reds stadium buts it's 30 plus minutes through a rough part of... More

Stayed here in July for one evening, staff was pleasant, cheerful and prompt, room was clean, only issue is there needs to be a way to leave a fan on in AC units all the time to mask sounds. Street sounds were not bad though, I would stay there again.

This is by far the fanciest hotel we have ever stayed in. Hotel was in a GREAT LOCATION!! Staff was VERY VERY FRIENDLY and ACCOMMODATING!! we couldn't have asked for better. I would give this a 4 star but sadly I am going to give it a 31/2. because of the bathroom and TV. Now I know you don't go... More

I go to Cinci every year for a concert, and I was so happy for the value I received for my room at the hotel. When we pulled in, it was gorgeous and the lobby was impressive. There was free parking and that was wonderful too, as we had a truck full of coolers, tents etc. We parked underground and... More

I expected a much nicer place for the money. Plenty of things in the room needs replaced or repaired. The bathroom is dirty and grimy. Drapes and valance over the window does not much. The room is outdated. I have stayed at many hotels and the quality of this room is expected from a hotel that runs about $75 a... More

I am very sorry our hotel did not meet your expectations. Many factors go into the price of a hotel room, not just the hotel itself. That being said, we have just started a multi-million dollar renovation at the hotel. We will be totally renovating all the guest rooms as well as much of the public areas. I hope you... More

I checked into this hotel on Sunday July 12th. My initial impressions were that the hotel was clean and up to date as far as décor. There was one slight issue during check in. A bad storm had just passed and a power blip had knocked out their network and reservation system. Their employees were constant in trying to fix... More

We typically stay downtown Cincinnati but it was a nice change to stay here. After reading some of the reviews I was not sure what to expect. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The parking is free so that was a plus compared to being downtown. We were not on the side directly by the freeway but could see the... More

While at this hotel we were able to watch fireworks displays from across the river at the ballfield and other surrounding locations. I saw at least 5 at the same time and this was after the 4th!! It was great viewing from the French balcony facing the river! The staff was very nice and accommodated our room choice, it was... More

This is kind of your run of the mill mid-price hotel. There were a few cosmetic flaws (rips in wallpaper, etc) but our room was clean and comforatble. We had a lovely view of Downtown CIncinnati and the Covington/Newport area. It's not far to travel to Newport or Cincinnati from the hotel, which was nice and it is within walking... More

Stayed here on June 18 and 19. Hotel was clean and comfortable. They have sleep number beds. The entire staff was excellent and very helpful. They gave us directions and information to wherever we wanted to go. Hotel has complimentary shuttle to within 5 miles of hotel. Only downside was the traffic on the freeway. It never lets up. But...
