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

We stayed at the Kingsgate from December 1-5. We had stayed here four years ago and it was wonderful so when we had to come back to children's hospital it was a no brainer to come back to this hotel. I had to have a procedure at children's so therefore I was not so excited for the trip but the... More

We are so conveniently located to Cincinnati Children's Hospital and our complimentary shuttle makes it very convenient for guests such as yourself to count on us to get you to and from the hospital with ease. We look forward to taking care of you in the future. Sue G More

The staff at this facility make you feel like a celebrity. The Bear Cat Lounge staff make all feel at home and like family. The service, and food are awesome. The sense of humor of the Bar staff is spot on, and very inviting. If you are in the area this a great place to stay or visit.

Spent two nights here and the room was great. Nice spacious king room, comfy beds, nice bathroom, etc. People very friendly. You do have to pay for parking and must park under the hotel. The breakfast was awesome with hot and cold items. The area isn't the best but felt safe enough walking around to the hospital but you can... More

A typical Marriott, which in my opinion is quality. This hotel would be convenient for anyone who has to deal with the Cincinnati VA, or UC Health or the University of Cincinnati. Some roads leading to and areas around the hotel are a bit shady but it seem pretty safe around the hotel property. Did not eat there but had... More
