Let me start by saying that the only reason I'm writing this is to prevent another couple like my husband and myself from ruining a rare night out. I attempted to reach out to management prior to this review, but was unable to achieve resolution. (Though Mr. Pittman, the manager, responded to my email to ask when would be a... More

My wife and I took a quick jaunt down to Cincinnati in the middle of a week-long anniversary getaway in Amish country. The Cincinnatian made us feel like royalty. We had to wait just a few moments for our room to complete cleaning from the previous guests, but were still inside and relaxing well before our official check-in time. Officially... More

Knowing there was a Jason Aldean concert at Great American Ballpark with 40,000 plus attendees and the 3 day Buckle Up festival along the banks of the mighty Ohio with another 40,000 attendees, I booked my room via Hotwire in March. Paid around $205. Normally on not such a high demand weekend, this hotel rates can be purchased from $199... More

Stayed on night at the Cincinnatian and was a great stay. We went to a Reds game that afternoon and came back to the hotel. Our room was quiet as requested, very modern and up to date. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was a nice size. The bath is deep so those who like baths will enjoy the size. However,... More

Had a huge room. There was the bedroom with a king size bed, a sitting room and there was a dining table. Things are a little dated including the bathroom. On the whole, the experience was good. Only other item of note was that the room overlooked the inner bar/restaurant area rather than the outside. This meant it was a... More

The Cincinnatian is an absolutely wonderful place to stay if you are looking to stay in the downtown Cincinnati area! My husband, two children, and I stayed here for a couple nights last week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is both beautiful and historic! Each and every staff member were very welcoming and amazingly kind! We ate breakfast... More

I love the historic nature of the hotel. If you get a chance take the stairs for a mini trip back in time. Our room was huge. In addition to our king-size bed, we had a comfy sofa and chair. The room was clean, as was the bathroom, but the bathroom was tired...it really could stand to be updated. The... More

Wonderful hotel, walking distance to so many different places, and a superb staff. The charm of a historic hotel, but the amenities of an updated bathroom and amenities. Lovely lobby and bar area to enjoy in the evenings. We will definitely be visiting again as soon as we can!
