We stayed here when visiting for our friend's wedding. Colleen was super nice and very flexible when it came to our super late arrival (midnight). The bed and breakfast is also a fancy restaurant on the weekends. The room was clean, had a small A/C unit it for temperature control. They also had a killer patio for enjoying a nice... More

We had a wonderful stay in the Mozart Room. The hotel and dining room were beautiful. The details of the Mozart room were incredible. The bed was very comfortable. We had a nice breakfast in the morning. The manager Colleen and her son Josh went out of their way to make our stay very special. If you are needing to... More

I went to see the opening of the opera season and found this hotel online. I arrived during their 5-course dinner service prior to the Opera but was quickly checked-in and the manager whisked my bag upstairs (I was on the top (3rd) floor) and showed me around. I was in 'Beethoven' and the room was beautiful and well equipped.... More

We took a little overnighter to Cincinnati and stayed at the Symphony Hotel and liked it. Across the street from Washington Park and the Music Hall, and in walking distance from the Fendley Market and a great section of Vine Street, it was in a good location for us. Just be aware that OTR is dicey in places. We've stayed... More

I stayed one night in the Symphony Hotel, and my first feeling about the hotel was overwhelming positive. It's a beautiful hotel, with a nice 1920's looking restaurant and a piano, which makes you immediately want to stay there. We managed to park right in front of the hotel, and the owner of the hotel welcomed us very warmly, helping... More

I stayed at the Symphony Hotel the night of an event near Washington Park. The hostess and staff were so nice and helpful. I arrived with a short amount of time to get to my event and they quickly prepared me something to eat. My evening meal and breakfast were delicious. My room was beautiful and comfortable. I will definitely... More

Can't beat the location of this hotel literally next door to Music Hall in OTR. Stayed over a Saturday night in March 2014. We stayed in the Brahms room which is at the end of the hall 2nd floor. Upon arrival we met Colleen who gave us a welcome pack of fruit, granola bars, brownie for our room. The hotel... More

I purchased a weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday, which is also our anniversary. I was at The Symphony for a private party and was impressed by the food, the venue and the staff. We weren't disappointed. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like special guests. The Bach room is on the second floor with its own small... More

We enjoyed our stay here and loved having this option to walk to after attending the Cincinnati Philharmonic concert. The hostess is very friendly and responsive. There is a good bar and fine restaurant. It is within walking distance to many other good restaurants and interesting landmarks in downtown Cincinnati. We would definitely come back if we get the opportunity.
