The first hint we were in trouble happened before we walked in - the revolving door was broke. Check-in was easy but that's the only positive thing we can say! We get off the elevator and the first thing we see is a worn out, cigarette burned couch. Next, we walk down a hallway with floor boards that were unenen... More

The staff are very nice and accommodating but I cannot believe this is a 4 star hotel. The room was clean but well used. I was surprised at how small our room was which had a queen bed. The pillows and bedding were nice but the mattress nothing special. The walls are very thin and one could hear the shower... More

I had read mixed reviews, so did not have high expectations. I was in town only one night for a concert, so wasn't too concerned. I was able to check in early, and was upgraded without even asking. The room was lovely, clean, and it was very quiet even though the hotel was fully booked. I did not have time... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the hotel! We take our guests feedback very seriously. Of all of the great things you mentioned, I happiest to see you appreciated the marble staircase. That is the original staircase, dating back to 1882. Many amazing people have walked up and down those stairs. We hope you are... More

We spent one night here and loved it. The king room was spacious and meticulously clean. The bed was comfortable and the linens wonderful. Our room had a balcony overlooking the inside of the hotel and that was enjoyable. Staff was friendly and accommodating. A buffet breakfast was included and it was nice with a good selection of breakfast foods.... More

At first arrival, I was a bit worried. The lobby and atrium of the hotel is a bit dated. The hotel was decorated for the holidays and although it was cheerful, overall, it was visually cluttered. Check in was speedy and friendly. I was pleasantly surprised with the rooms. Large, clean, elegant, however I don't think this hotel should rank... More

My hotel room was spacious, elegant and comfortable. The bathroom was a masterpiece with heated floors, bubble tub with chromo-therapy lights, and huge shower with rain shower heads and side sprays. I missed having an in-room coffee maker, but other than that it was grand.

We thought the room was well priced and since we were only staying overnight the size (fairly small) was fine. We didn't care for the fact that our window overlooked the interior of the hotel but we knew that going in. The room was clean and quiet. We didn't eat at the restaurant but we had a drink at the...

I had to stay at this hotel as it was on the approved list of my corporation for a business trip. After having stayed at this hotel, I would only stay at this hotel if I had to. Let me state that the best part of the hotel experience was the hotel valet staff. Professional, quick, and very helpful would... More

Holy cow! I stayed at the Cincinnatian Hotel on business and was delighted by the experience. The Cincinnatian is a grand luxury hotel just steps from Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati. It is conveniently located and within walking distance of basically all of downtown. The hotel has been kept up and refurnished to a high degree. I was upgraded on... More

We stopped at this hotel on a whim because we have never stayed at a historic hotel. we were not disappointed. The customer service was impeccable from the valet, door man, front desk and breakfast concierge. We were not use to the in room snack/drink service so when we saw the prices were astounding. Nice area many places within walking... More
