I checked into the Hilton for an extra day and was quoted one price. The desk manager refused to give me a copy of the contract when I requested it, stating to me that it would be placed under my room's door upon my checking out. When I received the bill it was much higher then the daily rate that... More

We had a great experience at the Hilton. The staff were very friendly and helpful when we spoke with them. The rooms were clean, however, ours was VERY small. There were plenty of elevators, so we didn't have to wait more than a minute or two when going up or down, even on a Reds game night! The area of... More

The hotel is charming ... each room unique. The location is center of town overlooking Fountain Square with many things to do and see close by. By far the best part is the hotel staff. They are welcoming, helpful and caring; they will make you feel like family ... if you have a loving family. And if you love fine... More

And then there's abandonment. This hotel feels like an abandoned Art Deco hotel, which is a shame as I appreciate old world charm, but this isn't one of them. Service has been terrific, however, and catered lunch has been very good.

I was in Cincinnatti for a conference and was pleasantly surprised with this beautiful hotel in downtown Cincinnatti. My room was very nice and the service and friendliness was a "10". Visit the bar with art deco design and enjoy the great bartenders.

I am a sucker for historic buildings... The Netherlands Plaza and the adjoining Carew Tower have been designated a National Historic Landmark, and with good reason. It's a beautiful French art deco building (completed in 1931) and has retained lots of its original charm. You really should wander through the building to see the art deco flourishes, and do seek...

Stayed last week while driving home from vacation. Very nice Art Deco hotel. Diamond member and was offered an upgrade, but the room was not ready, so I took my reserved room. I've stayed at this hotel several times, as it is my home town, but never written a review previously. I've never had such a roomy room before....yes, I've... More

A beautiful hotel in an historic setting, the Hilton Netherlands in Cincinnati is still just a hotel. The flashy lobby belies the reality: it's still just a hotel--in an old building with old-building-issues. Service was very good; cleanliness and security were also very good. My room had a musty, mildewy smell (that I got used to, and forgot to report),... More

Classic Art Deco hotel in heart of CINCY. Has tons of amenities yet rooms are getting tired. Definitely ask for high room floors with river views. Connected to mall and internal walkway for hot and cons days. Go to observatory at top of building; well worth it!
