We selected this hotel for our annual Red Sox trip due to the price/location. We requested early check-in and we were able to get a room. However, the first room we were given they had just shampooed/washed the carpets and they were still wet, which we didn’t realize until we took our shoes off! Called the front desk and they... More

First room had A/C unit which smelled moldy and room felt damp. Front desk switched us to another room with better A/C but floor was filthy. Stocking feet literally stuck to carpet and were black after walking around room. Unfortunate because location is great.

Booked this hotel due to Trip Advisor reviews. Staff was very friendly and we spoke to everyone from the front desk to the maid to the maintenance workers. We noticed that the bathroom faucet was leaking and that hot water was not coming out but a call had already been placed and it was fixed promptly. We had a view... More

The location of this hotel is great, and the front desk was able to give us excellent directions to restaurants and the aquarium. However, we arrived at 5:45 and our room wasn't ready! Also, while we were waiting in the lobby, two employees walked through, loudly arguing, and slammed the office door. Not sure what was going on, but it... More

It is our sincere goal that every guest has a perfect experience at our hotel. However, sometimes things do happen that cause a disruption in our goals. We had a unfortunate incident with a member in our housekeeping department that regretfully spilled over into the public areas of the hotel and also caused a delay in having our rooms ready.... More

We stayed here one night for a quick trip passing through and we really enjoyed this hotel. The location is within walking distance of a shopping square with lots of places to eat, stores, and an aquarium. A little further away is the BB Riverboats and jut over the bridge over the Ohio is Great American Ballpark. Area seemed safe... More

Dear Guest, The staff of Comfort Suites Newport are happy that you enjoyed our location on the banks of the Ohio River. With the Newport Levee only 3 blocks from the hotel, it is such an ideal location. The Newport Levee is a restaurant and entertainment complex.

This is our go-to hotel for visiting the Cincinnati area. It's close to Newport on the Levy, Newport Aquarium, lots of restaurants, parking is free, and is only a $1 trip on the Southgate Shuttle away from Cincinnati. There's really no beating its location and being able to park our car and just walk or take the shuttle everywhere is... More

This hotel is very nice. The free breakfast is perfectly adequate, with a lovely view of the Ohio River from the breakfast room. The staff is friendly and helpful. They gave me several good suggestions of places to eat and things to do for entertainment. It's also very convenient to downtown Cincinnati. Next time I stay at this hotel, I'll... More

I booked this hotel from out of state due to its proximity to a concert venue and its river-front location. Upon arrival I could not have been more pleased. The lobby was small but very clean and tidy. The front desk staff (and actually all staff members I encountered) were absolutely beyond welcoming and helpful. And our room was ready... More
