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

This is an old, grand hotel in need of updating. The lobby is nice, the staff were all great but the rooms were old and tired. Not much different than other older hotels. It was also VERY noisy. I was woken up every time the AC would kick on. It was very clean but again the carpet and walls were... More
