Got a Travelzoo deal that included parking and food voucher. We arrived a few hours early and they had a room ready and even gave us a remodeled 2 queen room since our 9 year old was along. It was large enough for all of us & perfect! Shower was amazing & robes were a fun touch. We really enjoyed... More

Several years ago, I visited this hotel and was very happy with my stay. I left an excellent review. I visited again last week and this time was quite disappointed. I had to arrange a trip to Cincinnati at the last minute due to a death in my family. Since it was the last minute, I made the mistake of... More

Great location, very elegant. The property is very old, but that is what makes it charming. I have stayed here several times and enjoy the property. Staff is excellent, as well. If I had 1 thing I could change about this hotel, I would renovate the remaining rooms that need a renovation. I have stayed in both and there definitely... More

From the minute we stepped on the curb for valet parking at the Cincinnatian we were treated like VIP's. Service was exceptional and we much appreciated how polite and helpful the staff was. Leo the young gentlemen who checked us in was top shelf in every way!!! He went out of his way to make us feel at home and... More

I wasn't expecting too much since we booked this hotel thru Priceline. Boy was I suprised! It was a one night getaway for us. We booked it for a stay after the UC Bearcat game. Called on our way downtown to see if it was ok to drop the car off early. Was enthusiastically told yes and to drop our... More

This was our second stay at the Cincinnatian. We love the location and the historic features of the hotel. Some may say the property is dated, but we find it has character that you just don't find in newer properties. We really love the old worn marble stairs. The thought of the many many people who have tread across them... More

This is probably the hardest hotel to rate ever. It was really beautiful. It is obviously a place with years and years of history and it is one of the prettiest places I have ever been in. BUT - just under the surface you can see that keeping a place like this is VERY expensive and I did not pay... More

My husband and I couldn't be happier with our weekend stay at the Cincinnatian. This was our first stay at this hotel and it definitely won't be our last. We're not even sure what to begin with as the whole experience was just amazing. We guess we will start with the room. It was not only well thought out with... More

This was the last hotel room available and I can see why. We stayed at the hotel on November 6 2014. The rooms smelled – mind and my colleague's. The service was awful. I never got my wakeup call and almost missed my flight. It took the valet 55 minutes to get our car in the evening and we were... More

If you are not familiar with downtown Cincinnati, this hotel is quite hard to find. The entrance is actually on 6th Street, not Vine Street, as shown on the internet. It has an unobtrusive entrance, and I literally had to get a person on the phone at the hotel to guide me there after passing it twice. Once inside, the... More
