My husband and I stayed at the Westin Cincinnati a few weeks ago, on a househunting trip in town (we are moving and had previously never been to the city). I booked due the great rate, but it turned out to be the perfect location.
We were placed on the SPG floor (I have about 2 SPG points total, so you don't have to be an upper echelon member to get this floor) and had a beautiful room overlooking Fountain Square. We could lie in bed and watch the Reds from the massive TV screen outside our room, and checked out Graeter’s, which I think singlehandedly lowered my anxiety about moving to a new city, and loved the feel for the city.
The hotel itself is very clean and quiet, especially considering the surround hustle and bustle that is found in the lobby (which is sort of an atrium that it shares with other businesses nearby, such as US Bank, FedEx Kinko's, and Dunkin Donuts). The locaiton is second to none. We walked everywhere! So many hotels and shops were just a block away, which made every meal a new adventure.
Also, I almost never work out in hotels because I can’t stand their fitness centers, but my husband and I were compelled to check out the Westin's and found it wonderful! The chilled towels and top of the line treadmills really made all the difference. There's also a great indoor pool. It was a Ritz-Carlton workout experience at a Westin rate.
This hotel would be my #1 pick for business travelers, sports fans just looking to stay somewhere close, and even families who want to stay downtown. If you're looking for a boutique, quaint hotel, this isn't it (it's a large skyscraper), but for a basic trip to the city, it serves its purpose very well.
