“Impressive property at perfect location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

The property is located right at the Fountain Square with a lot of restaurants and pubs across the street. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel too. Rooms are beautiful, spacious and well maintained, and some of them have the view of the Fountain Square! Staff is very helpful and friendly. Food preparation is great, with some brilliant choices for breakfast at the restaurant.
The hotel also sports some very good conference facilities. Overall a very impressive property.

Stayed July 2012, traveled on business

Nothing truly outstanding but very good Westin experience. Nice room, good bed, good gym, pool bit small but that's fine. Right in middle of town so good location. Staff seemed friendly and attentive. Recommend. Only gripe is parking wasn't included.

Room Tip: Fountain view is better.

I recently stayed at the Westin Cincinnati Dec 30 to Jan 1 for New Years. This hotel is a great place to stay. I stayed there NYE 2011 as well. The hotel is right down town across the street from Fountain Square and just a few minutes walking distance from many restaurants and the baseball and football stadiums. The staff is very helpful and courteous right from the valet to the house keeping. The lobby is great . There is a restaurant and a cocktail lounge by the front desk. The rooms are clean, have the softest beds and lines i have ever sleep on. Now don't get me wrong i really like this hotel but i must give a few dislikes here to be The .

1. The valet can take some time, its not that you have to wait for the valet to show up, its just that they are busy at times as the garage that is used is not just for guests but other people that want to use the valet.

2.The hotel is starting to show some wear and tear. The carpet around the elevators is showing wear and some stains and the hallways are a little dark and lacking some decor

3. The elevators take a few minutes from call to call.

All in all this is a awesome hotel and i will be staying here again. This is becoming a NYE tradition and there are many other things to do in the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a fountain view room for a better view.

My husband and I are from Cincinnati, and we stayed at the Westin Hotel on fountain square following our wedding, which was literally one block away. We toured the Westin, the Cincinnatian and the Hilton before choosing. The Cincinnatian was slightly "prettier", or at least more "boutique-ish" which we liked, but you can't beat the Westin in terms of location and price, and the view of Fountain Square is nice. The room was LARGE and clean. Decor could have been a little fancier for honeymoon purposes, but in the hotel's defense, I'm pretty sure they offer an actual Honeymoon Suite that might be fancier that we just weren't willing to shell out for for one night's stay. Room service was prompt, with a decent late night menu selection. Check-in and check-out was smooth and uneventful. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay right in the heart of downtown Cincy!

Finally the Westin has somewhere to sit that doesn't feel as if you're in the midst of a closed shopping mall. The wine bar addition is a nice touch and whilst there's a small menu of appetizers available it is possible to order food from the room service menu and have it delivered to the bar. For the first time I reached my room and found all the necessary additions were there-shampoo,soap, lotion, face cloth etc. What was equally surprising was the addition of a bath robe.
The front desk service was friendly and they quickly sorted out the few queries I had.

Room Tip: Fountain Square facing rooms are nice and bright

Very practical hotel for business travel, with central location. if you can get a room with a view of Fountain Square, it is worth it! Fitness room and pool up top is in good shape and a nice bonus. I would definitely stay here again. Does not hurt either to have McCormick's in the base of the building.

Stayed recently for 2 nights for a girl's weekend. The room was comfortable and clean. The location was excellent for the ease of walking to restaurants, bars and shopping. We especially felt comfortable walking after dark in the immediate area, although of course we were cautious. There appeared to be plenty of people walking the area after dark. Plus it is only about 2-3 blocks to "The Banks," with more restaurants and bars.

The Starbucks was a nice surprise for breakfast with made to order breakfast items available and for a good price that we paid extra for with the room

Parking garage was a surprise with the close quarters and the corkscrew turns which made it somewhat difficult to navigate our vehicle around the curves without rubbing the tires on the curb.

Would like to try the stay in the warmer weather again.

I wish they had free WIfi available as so many people can have better use of their Ipads, computers, etc. Nowadays it appears just about everyone has a need for this and most hotels offer it free to their customers.
