Although we only spent one evening at the hotel, we chose it because it was downtown Cincinnati, in an historic building, AND it had an on-site museum. To say it surpassed our expectations is an understatement. The first thing you notice is that their Reception area looks more like the Genius Bar at the Apple Store. It is a sleek... More

We stay here every time we go to Cincinnati, and for good reason. This hotel is beautiful, the service is wonderful, the restaurant is consistently amazing...and they are one big art gallery. What is not to love? Oh, if that is not enough, they have giant yellow penguins that roam the hotel/restaurant, and they'll even let you take one to... More

We stayed at 21c for a wedding, which was being held in the hotel. First of all, it had all of the things a nice hotel has: comfortable, roomy rooms, great amenities, attractive and appealing restaurant. But, there was so much more: the beds were AMAZING, the art installations were all over the hotel (unexpected, creative, interesting, fun), there were... More

This was a beautiful hotel but simple- one restaurant and one bar. The food was the best part of the entire stay! Breakfast was incredible every morning- great menu. The rooms were quite comfortable as well; very clean, great service, cozy feel. The surrounding area has nice restaurants and bars as well.

Loved this trendy place. Best food I've ever had. Rooms were lush, beds comfy, great service.They have a very cool museum in hotel. Very great staff. Good workout room. Great spa. Excellent rooftop bar. I didn't know anything this trendy was possible in Cincinnati. Wow! They've started some great buzz for a recovering industrial city.

We stayed here on my birthday night. What a great hotel! They went out of there way to make me feel special on my birthday and even gave me a hand written note. We loved walking through and looking at all the art. This hotel is expensive but worth every penny. We will be back!

This is by far the best hotel in Cincinnati at the present time - and I have stayed in all the downtown hotels. Location is excellent, rooms are big and bright, bathrooms are big and have all the amenities. Closet is rather small, but probably enough for people who don't drag along as much stuff as I tend to.

This Hotel went above and beyond with world class service and design. An amazing recovery from the last time I stayed. Thrilled I gave it another try. This hotel is the finest example of chic-hip-luxe accomodation in Cincinnati and perhaps anywhere. Thank you to the staff for an amazing stay and exemplary service. Best, Michael D.
