I was in Cincinnati area to help my son move and decided to stay overnight at the last minute. Used Hotwire so hotel was a bit of a surprise. Check in was quick and easy. Lobby was very welcoming with a touch of elegance. I requested a room on far side away from 1-75. Room had a great king size... More

We stayed at this hotel on August 17. Normally I am not picky on hotels, but this one has some big negatives. First, our room was on the Riverfront side, near the highway. It was extremely loud all night long- not one of us slept well, and two of us had earplugs. We also had a bathroom door that was... More

The rooms were very small and not worth the $139 a night that we paid. The hotel bar/cafe usually only had one person working and they were bartender/waiter. We had problems with our toilet but the maintenance staff was quickly there to fix that issue. The highway is directly outside of the hotel and this made for a very loud... More

I'm currently in one of the rooms as I write this. I'm here for a work convention, so my organization is picking up most of the tab. The pool is cold and the hot tub...excuse me, spa is small. The gym is in the basement and it's sauna-hot. Being a gym bunny, I'm disappointed at the 1 crappy elliptical and... More

Stayed at the Radisson during the Macy's Jazz Festival and I must admit I was disappointed upon arrival. Rooms are dated, carpet not so celan and beds are (sleep number beds). Most of the rooms do not have a safe to store valuable items had to use safe at front desk (unbelieveable), bathroom is also small and dark lighting. The... More

We got this hotel by bidding on priceline for $70! We got there early and they checked us in which was great. We were in town for Tuesday night and Wednesday day Reds games. We signed up for the shuttle when we checked in, which the manager quickly pulled out a piece of computer paper and scribbled some times. We... More

Way to place a hotel where all major highways meet! Thank god for ambien or I would not have gotten the 2-3 hours I did get before wearing off. Bring your earplugs. Also I had to switch rooms as WiFi did not work on one side of the hotel. I had a great view of the giant pink neon "liquor"... More

I am very sorry you did not get a good nights sleep. We are in the process of making a riverview room type that you can book and be guaranteed a room that over looks the river. Hopefully, this will give people an option away from the highway. I am checking on the wi fi issue we have not had... More

We chose this hotel due to the price, however, would have preferred to stay closer to the river. We did save money since you only sleep in the room, but wait we could not sleep due to the highway noise. Would not stay there again. The service was great, but agree lousy accomodations!

We stayed at the Radisson on Thursday, July 10, 2013. We were celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary and having spent both our wedding night and our 10th wedding anniversary at this hotel, we thought it might be nice to stay once again. We made our reservations by phone to ask for a city view, as close to our original room... More
