This is probably the single best hotel in the entire city! I've tried about 6 of them now (though the 21c hasn't been one of them) and this was the best of the bunch, by far. It's the best of both worlds: a brand new hotel in a historic downtown building. Everything is clean and new and stylish, beyond what... More

Decided to have a spontaneous getaway to Cincinnati and stayed here in one of executive suites. The room was luxurious with room to spare. A large seating area, a large bedroom, a half bath, as well as a 4 piece bathroom. The room has a large soaking tub that was very relaxing. I enjoyed the very contemporary decor as well.... More

Stayed here for one night in an executive suite. My spouse travels a lot and says it was one of the best suites to date. The staff was beyond friendly and check in was fast and efficient. The decor is beautiful. The lounge/ restaurant is very cozy with nice sitting areas.

I and 100 or so Fraternity young and alumni SIGMA CHIs had rooms, meals, and meetings in this new, charming building. The staff were very attentive, the food was well presented and tasty- and adequate volume for the younger set! The hotel was quiet and well appointed! I did call for a cab- and one came- Yellow reasonably promptly- BUT... More

I travel to Cincinnati quite a bit for business. I've stayed at various hotels, but hands down the Renaissance is the best. Very happy I found it. Very friendly and accommodating staff, clean contemporary rooms, nice fitness center (although I hope they add Life Fitness ab machine-please!) and the bar/restaurant is also very good and comfortable. Highly recommend!

The location downtown couldn't be more ideal to both Riverfront activities (stadiums, The Banks), and Downtown stuff (Fountain Square, restaurants, etc). It's an easy walk to everything. The hotel is less than a year old, and the the decor is decidedly modern. It offers a nice alternative to some of the other downtown hotels that have grown a little tired.... More

The Renaissance Marriott is housed in a building built in 1901 by the famous architect, Daniel Burnham, as the Union Central Bank. The building later became known as the Bartlett building and was opened in 2014 after a conversion into a hotel. The exterior of the building was restored and preserved in it's entirety, and many of the internal features... More

Tom, Thank you for the great review! Your recap of our building history is spot on! One minor note though, our building actually opened as Union Trust (not Union Central). I am including the history recap we have in our lobby as I thought you might enjoy it. Thanks again for your great review and for staying with us! Ryan... More
