The hotel was pretty easy to get to. There was a parking garage across the street. Access was easy and the attendants were very helpful. The hotel was up to date and all the employees were very pleasent and helpful at all times

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

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.

Thank you for your comments!!! I am happy to hear you got to enjoy the room, bar and downtown. We do wish we can do something about our view. We have been established here since 1882 and had the VIEW of VIEWS. Times change and business builds so the building around us are there to stay. If I could I... More

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.

Thank you for your feedback. Nidia will be thrilled to hear your kind words. She is a great addition to our team. You are correct in saying we cant do much about the view. In 1882 we had THE view but things change and businesses began. We hope you return soon for another stay! Jodie Fitzgerald Assistant Hotel Manager More

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

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. Absolutely ask for an outside facing room. The weekends can lead to energized guests in the bar and I am sorry that kept you awake. We do offer complimentary coffee in the lobby in the morning for the guests so please call down and our bell staff will be... More
