We are here for a wedding and this was one of the affordable options recommended by the wedding couple. They are quite horrified after I shared our arrival findings. It is clear the owner is just letting it go before a big sale. To their credit, there are some wonderful staff and I am sorry for them they have to... More

I assume that the recent reviewers are now a little richer than they were before they posted their reviews, a back hander is the only reason to post anything remotely positive about this place. Pros : It was close to a wonderful new hotel just up the road, Hampton Inn & Suites, Vine Street, so my escape was easy. Cons... More

Stayed here for one night as part of a baseball roadtrip. The hotel is in a great location for the ballpark - it was about a 10 min walk to the stadium and the river. The rooms are large suites and while they were dated, they were clean. The hotel is pretty dated but considering it was half the cost... More

We stayed here for almost two weeks while in Cincinnati for work. We had a two bedroom unit, which was very nice. Yes, it was dated as many reviewers have pointed out-the kitchen appliances and charming dining chandelier can measure their age in decades rather than years. Yes, there really was 80s music playing in the hallway (maybe the staff... More

Staying here was one of the best places I've slept in quite some time. The food was excellent, the rooms were very clean, service was clean. The location is centralized in downtown and surrounded by various shops and restaurants.

First the good news. The staff here is outstanding!! From the front desk clerk at check-in, to a maintenance man working on a hall window, everybody couldn't have been nicer, or more accommodating. Now the bad news...once I got to my room, I felt like I was stepping into a time machine. The furniture, carpeting, drapes, etc, were VERY old,... More

I have been travelling for over 10 years domestically and internationally for a living and I have to say this was truly one of the worst places I’ve ever stayed. It’s a shame because it is truly a disservice to the front desk staff (Darrin who couldn’t be more accommodating), which is clearly holding this “establishment” together. As a Cincinnati... More

I came for the Flying Pig Marathon and this was one of the few downtown hotels that offered reasonable rates. The location is terrific - no more than a 10-15 minute walk from the Duke Energy Convention Center, the Great American Ball Park, etc. There are plenty of restaurants in close proximity. The facilities desperately need renovation. On one of... More

We booked a two-bedroom suite on the 14th floor. Here's a rundown of the pro's and con's... Pros: Location, location, location. The hotel is right in the heart of the beautiful downtown. Our room was on the 14th floor and had a balcony so we enjoyed viewing the city, especially at night. The hotel service was also fantastic. Every staff... More

Having stayed at the Garfield several times before, we were well aware that it is a dated hotel and will never be confused with some of the nicer hotels in downtown Cincinnati. However it is also much cheaper (half the price) of most and is conveniently located if you are taking in a Reds game or have other business in... More
