“Beautiful hotel in an excellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The Westin in Cincinnati is the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are spacious, the staff are so friendly and helpful from the valet parking to the reception staff to housekeeping. The hotel is in a great location overlooking the square with lots of places to eat and drink within minutes walking distance. The hotel is friendly and welcoming and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Cincinnati.

Room Tip: If you can get a room overlooking the square then this is definitely worth it!

Even by Westin standards, the service is absolutely exceptional here, including the housekeeping staff. When they learned I was stuck in the room with a severe cold, they brought extra boxes of tissues and had room service deliver a tray containing fruit, hot tea, water and power bars. The rooms are lovely with incredible beds and linens. I'm impressed.

Room Tip: Being a SPG member is helpful.

Really great location and superb customer service. Make sure you become a starwood preferred member so that you stay in their better rooms. I've a feeling the non preferred rooms aren't all that great, but don't take my word for that. The workout room is not huge, but for travelers it is quite adequate. There is no full service restaurant, but there is a nice bar. The room service menu is top shelf.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room overlooking the square.

It was my first visit to the city and I had a great experience at the Westin. It had a great view overseeing the fountain in the downtown and it had excellent room service facilities. As the hotel is located in a good locale it is easy to find restaurants with different cuisines all around. Perfect place for a business or a fun stay!

Room Tip: Very well located , if you have main business in the Cincinnati downtown then opt in for the Westin.

My husband and I have stayed here several times to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We've rented rooms that overlook Fountain Square. With our anniverary being in December, the Westin is the PERFECT place. Beautifully decorated downtown, ice skating rink on Fountain Square and there's always a romantic horse-drawn carriage awaiting to take people through a stroll of downtown.

But the BEST thing about the Westin is the beds! You'll never, ever have a better night's sleep.

Room Tip: Make sure you view Fountain Square.

Great location in heart of downtown Cincy overlooking Fountain plaza and just a few blocks from the Great American Ballpark! Only negative was elevator service to floors was incredibly slow. Room views were great and OV bar was nice hangout.

Stayed this past weekend on a comp room from Horseshoe Cincinnati. Since this was a comp I was expecting to be given a older room that might not be up to par. I was very pleased with the room. The room was a decent size and well decorated. I will say the bathroom was a bit small, but ok. The room was spotless clean and had no odors and basically smelled fresh without the heavy " coverup" sprays that a lot of hotels now use. The front desk was very efficent and pleasant and very busy as the Reds were in town for a home game and a lot of the folks from the Reds & the visiting team stay here.
Cant comment on the cost since it was a comp room. Bed was comfy, if a bit soft for my liking, but I like a firm bed.
