First class hotel centrally located in downtown Cincy. Classy bar lounge with jazz musicians on weekends, restaurant has wonderful staff and truly delicious food. I have stayed at the hotel numerous times over the past 4 years and would never stay anywhere else in the city. Shopping at Saks or Macy's, tiffany's is all right there. Fountain Square is across...

We stayed here after a Reds game one night. The rooms are big and clean. This is a really old hotel. I am not sure that it is still worth the high prices they charge to stay there. You can find cheaper prices on Hotwire from time to time. I prefer a more modern hotel.

The location is perfect if you are looking for a central location to walk around town. We parked a block away from the hotel for $10 which was a bid savings. We walked to dinner, Fountain Square for entertainment, breakfast, and just walking to enjoy the downtown architecture. Our room was small but newly remodeled and very nice. The hotel... More

I called the hotel directly and spoke with Ashley. She listened to my description of what I was looking for in a room and when we checked in she remembered speaking to me and was very sweet. She picked the perfect room for us to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. The food was delicious at the Cricket lounge and affordable.... More

This was my first stay at the Cincinnatian but many visits to the area. I was very impressed with the service and the room was spectacular. I was upgraded to an executive queen room so not sure how standard compares. The building is historic but well maintained and nicely updated room. The bathroom was spectacular with a Jacuzzi tub and... More

We were apprehensive about this hotel as some things written were things we count on with our granddaughter, but it turned out great! She loved the historic style mixed with modern luxuries. We upgraded from the comped casino room for $40 and we're glad for it. Location was great, convenient to downtown activities and restaurants. The shower was fantastic, sporting... More

Last time I stayed at the Cincinnatian I found it charming, with a very large room and a cozy bar area with a local jazz band playing. This time our check-in began the sub-optimal stay. Two attendants gave strange answers to questions: "As a human being, yes, but as a representative of the hotel, no." Our room was poorly lit,... More

The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was clean and quiet. The price to stay was also reasonable. Not far from Fountain Square. I would stay again and recommend to anyone looking for a hotel in Cincinnati.

We have stayed here several times and have always had a good experience. The hotel is in a great location right across from fountain square and walking distance from many things. The hotel is nice the service has always been good and the rooms are very nice with comfortable beds and decent sized. The last time we stayed here we... More
