Everything about this hotel was great: the room was very large, clean, and had wonderful amenities; the staff were friendly and helpful; the location was perfect; and the price seemed reasonable for everything we got. Leo at the front desk even got us a free room upgrade. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will assuredly be staying there again... More

We stayed at the Cincinnatian one night to celebrate our anniversary. Everyone we spoke with was friendly and helping including Nydia the concierge. The only complaint was that our view looked out at an empty building, but there's nothing the hotel can do about that. I hope that people realize the gem available in Cincinnati.

I can't say enough about the friendly and helpful staff. They make the Luxury of this beautiful old Hotel. Marble everywhere, views and atrium....Quiet refuge when needed from the vibrant activity of Downtown Cincinnati. So much comfort and beauty, and still very resonalble, when you figure you can valet park your car and still see everything.

I had looked forward to our stay here and picked the Cincinattian after much research. I thought the balcony rooms seemed “quaint” and could picture enjoying a glass of wine after a long day. Boy was I wrong! Avoid the balcony rooms at all cost! Firstly, they are not functional. No chairs and our door would not stay open. The... More

We used the hotel for our Wedding Block and it was perfect. The rooms were unique and beautiful, the front desk staff was great, our block rep (Lindsay) was awesome, and everyone had a great time. Thank you!

Arrived after long flight at 2.00pm to be told the guests in our room had extended and paid for check out until 3.00pm so room would be ready until around 5.00pm - not a great start. Check in is guaranteed at 3.00pm at this hotel. Manager was present throughout the issues on reception and did nothing, leaving us to deal... More

We were downtown to attend a Reds game and stayed at the Cincinnatian Hotel for the first time. The Hotel Lobby is beautiful and the staff are very nice and helpful. The room was small however the bed was amazing ! Very comfortable ! We will be back to stay again.

My son and I were looking for a hotel to attend a baseball game, and spend the evening downtown. While searching for rooms we discovered that almost all the downtown hotels had no rooms available that weekend. One of the few we were able to locate was in The Cincinnatian Hotel. I had stayed there before and had found it... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad to hear you are going to return to our hotel! Sadly, yes, there isn't much of a view. in 1882 we had a great view as the oldest hotel in the city but people came and built all around us. We must be popular. :) We hope to welcome you back... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Cincinnatian. Hotel staff was incredibly accomodating and nice. We went to have dinner in the main diningroom before a Reds game to discover it was a 7 course tasting menu that they were willing to rush for us. We decided that would be a waste of a very nice evening and ate a... More

I am so glad the bar staff went the extra step with the popcorn. We find the little added extras help people really feel at home here. I hope you called down about the pocket door as we should send our engineer on site right up to the room to assist you. Thank you again and we hope you return... More
