When we arrived, the lady helping us was amazing! She was more than accommodating and helped us get the answers we needed. She really went the extra mile to make us feel right at home. The next day though, we needed a taxi to the airport and so the tall college aged front desk clerk guy called a taxi for... More

Dear Brandon J, I would like to personally apologize for the unsatisfactory experience you encountered during your recent stay with us. Providing excellent customer service is very important to us at Kingsgate and any behavior viewed as negative will not be tolerated. The hotel does have preferred methods of transportation; however, all are comparable in price. I would enjoy speaking... More

Great hotel and Great location! Hotel right on campus close to everything! VERY accommodating staff! Shuttle runs every half hour; however, it was raining so Burt kept in running continuously! Fantastic wood burning stove cooked pizza at the hotel. Normally don't eat hotel food because we like to try local flavors being from Louisiana. Highly recommend this hotel. Large rooms,... More

Great stay! Clean quiet room and excellent service. Got the zoo packing that cost only 30 dollars over the standard rate, excellent deal! Will be staying again. Also, excellent breakfast (that came in the package).

Arrived after 9 on a cold rainy night. Check in was speedy and friendly. Room was fine/typical for a marriott (more on that in a moment). Room service: slow and food was cold After I turned out the light, the toilet starts randomly running...sigh... Had any or all of this happened earlier, I would have raised a stink and asked...

Kingsgate Marriott exceeded our expectations in terms of friendly service and hotel cleanliness! Front desk clerks Jenn and Bert were especially helpful and the morning staff in the restaurant were very welcoming. We will definitely return to this hotel for its proximity to museums and other places of interest, and of course, the great staff!

Expecting a noisy hotel, it was a pleasant surprise to find a new, open-air hotel near the U. Clean. Quiet at night (Hallelujah!). We were told it isn't safe to walk across the campus at night, so we didn't do that. But they do have a shuttle.

Stayed with a group of colleagues. Nice hotel, conveniently located a short drive from the international airport, close to downtown. Service was nice, room service ordered arrived promptly. Good choice for breakfast. Yummy omelets! Coffee was awful although it is hard to find a decent cuppa in those chain hotels anyway! You have to have a car around there for... More

When our son was attending the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati several years ago, we stayed here often. When we decided to return to Cincinnati last weekend for a quick visit and a show at CCM, we decided to re-visit the Kingsgate Marriott. Not much has changed, and that is good. The hotel is situated within walking... More

I've stayed here about 6 times for business and have to say that the staff consistently exceeds my expectations. They are kind and it's a great Marriott property that's been kept up well. They always have cold water or iced juice in the summer for the guests. A quick tip for parking. You pull off of Goodman Drive and to... More

If you are a Marriott traveler, the Kingsgate is a good choice. I'll be returning often through the next 6-10 months for work. Overall, very comfortable rooms, the baths are updated and the linens felt crisp and new (no years of washing feeling). The first time I tried parking there, it was a little confusing (you go in through the... More
