“Great Stay in Newport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2005

My Mom, Dad, Girlfriend and I stayed at the Comfort Suites from Friday May 20 until Monday May 23. I did a little bit of research and found out this would be the perfect for a weekend in the Newport/Cincinnati area. The hotel staff was very friendly and upon checking in I was informed that I was selected as the Guest of the Day. This entitled us to a free app at Joe's Crab Shack (right next door) and a bag of goodies. The hotel is only about 4 blocks from Newport of the Levee and the Water Taxi which takes you to the Reds stadium. Unfortunately, on Sunday night the starter went dead on my car and I had to stay another night in Newport. Well the staff was more than helpful in making this unpleasent circumstance work out for the best. If you need a decent place to stay with a good location, this is the place for you...

This place is a 4.9 star hotel. The One and only problem I had, was that there were no do not disturb signs in the room. other then that... the view of the river was exotic, the large room felt better and more comfortable then my own home. Hows that for making you feel welcome?

Stayed at this hotel on a busy weekend in Cincinnati, Sept 18-19, 2004. The hotel offers very easy access on and off of I-475. However, the hotel is situated kind off by itself with nothing nearby. Newport on the Levee entertainment complex can be a long up and down walk especially at night. A low-cost city shuttle stops behind the hotel that can take you to the Levee or across the river to downtown Cincinnati. We took advantage of the shuttle to Great Amerian Ballpark for the Reds Game. Be advised that walking from this hotel to either stadium in downtown is a very long walk. We arrived around 2:30pm to see if our room was available to check-in early. The front desk staff informed us that they were still turning rooms over from the previous night and to come back at check-in at 4pm. We came back at 4:30pm and they still were turning rooms over and luckily had one ready for us but other guests were lining up in the lobby. The hotel overall was average with clean and nothing over average rooms. This hotel has very little public space with a very tiny lobby and two slow elevators. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Parking is a challenge if it is busy and spots are way too small for most vehicles. Would recommend staying downtown Cincinnati, if you can get a good rate or further down the river in Covington which is closer to everything. Overall a not great but not horrible experience.

We stayed at the Comfort Suites in Newport in September 2003. We had tickets to a Cincinnati Reds Baseball game. During our stay we found the hotel to be very clean, nice size rooms, and nice bathrooms as well. We had a nice sitting area in our room right next to the window overlooking the Ohio River. The only negative thing about the room was that we also were on a low enough floor that we saw the back of the restaurant in between the hotel and the river. The hotel had a great breakfast in the morning including make your own belgian waffles. It was great! We were able to take a TANK bus over to the Ball park for $2 per person roundtrip. (Much cheaper than parking at the ballpark). Newport on the Levee is within a short walk or drive to the hotel as well. (You should really visit the aquarium - It's awesome and we are both over 35 years old). Lots of nearby restaurants within walking distance and several pizza places that will deliver to the hotel as well. It was a great place to stay, we already have reservations to go back in July 2004!
