Right downtown, and easy access to shopping and dining. You can easily stay here and walk to a baseball game or a football game. We saw several groups doing just that. We could hear the street noise from our room on the seventh floor.

Thank you for the feedback. Being in the middle of downtown we do run into the inconvenience of street noise. Cincinnati is hustling and bustling this time of year with the Reds and Bengals in action. We are also lucky to be right in the heart of all the "goings on" with fountain square etc. I am sorry the noise... More

I have no idea how this hotel has 4.5 stars. It is severely overdue for a renovation!! They must have put me in the worst room in the entire hotel. The room wreaked of cigarette smoke, the decor was significantly outdated and uncomfortable. The toilet was absolutely disgusting with its' "mysterious" streak mark in the bowl (see photos). There was... More

Please give us another chance and mention you would like a newer room upon booing directly with us. We are happy to do our best to find a room that works... More

Went to Cincinnati for an anniversary and decided to stay at the Cincinnatian. We had a free room but decided to upgrade for a nominal amount and we were extremely pleased with our room. We had fireplaces in both the bedroom and bathroom. We had a whirlpool tub and large shower area. Everything was clean and beautifully arranged. We had... More

The hotel is truly a historic place. Love the service from the valets, check-in, the bar. The rooms are very spacious and love that each one is different. The only thing that I would like is a tub and shower not just a shower. But on our last visit they did take care of that for us. Really liked walking... More

My husband and 20 year old son stayed here for one night while visiting friends in Cincinnati. We were greeted with a cup of coffee and friendly staff. Our rooms were very spacious and homey. All the rooms are a little bit different and I think that added to the feel of staying in someones home rather than a hotel.... More

We are so glad to hear you will be returning for another stay. Thank you so much. You are very accurate in stating, "if you don't like the décor ask..." We are here to make sure you are comfortable and happy. We are more than willing to show you other available rooms as they are all different and have character.... More

I didn't notice a posted rate for the valet and wasn't given another option so I took valet. After walking to dinner I realized a parking deck for $12 overnight parking literally right around the corner. When I asked the rate upon returning to the hotel I was quoted a different rate than what it actually was ($28) which I... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. I am sorry for any confusion you may have had with the valet. The charge is $28 overnight and that is In and Out privileges so its the one time fee for as many times as you need your vehicle. The Garage charge is each time you exit which is... More

Great location, spacious rooms (view was terrible), great (not busy) hotel bar, very friendly staff. Just a block or two away from Aronoff center, Jeff Ruby's, starbucks, and the stadiums. Would recommend this hotel.
