I stayed at this hotel for a conference a few weeks back and it was a nice very clean hotel with punctual staff and service. (Room service always stated 30-45 min, I would have it within 20 min every time). Conference rooms were clean, and turned over amazingly fast for different events we were hosting. Food during sessions were great.... More

I have stayed at many hotels capable of accommodating smaller (150- 250 people) and this is a winner. Our group negotiated a breakfast included rate. Parking is reasonable, wi- fi free. The conference ran smoothly, the staff was competent, helpful, and efficient. The conference food, interesting, varied and not boring. Uber provided jaunts into the city reasonably.

This place did a good job with our convention. The beds are comfortable, everything is clean, and the conference services were strong. The breakfast buffet was OK, nothing special. I had only good experiences with the staff. I appreciated the free wifi throughout the property! You will need it, since cell service in both the conference center and the rooms... More

I am a diamond Hilton member and normally only stay at Hilton properties. However, on my most recent stay in Cincinnati I chose the Kingsgate Marriott because of the trip advisor reviews. The hotel did not disappoit me at all. The lobby was very well appointed. Rooms were very big and the beds were extremely comfortable. Staff was very friendly.... More

Stayed here for a conference: nice room and facilities, good wifi speeds, and good service in the bar in the evenings. We had a reception there one evening, with good drinks and nibbles. Excellent place to stay near the University.

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).

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!
