“A return NYE visit to Westin Cincinnati!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Ringing in 2014 at the Westin in downtown Cincinnati was terrific!
From easy check in and check out (and we were early!) to the spacious parlor and King room adjacencies for our family & friends to spread out- we had a blast.
Kids went swimming at the indoor pool (clean, calm and warm!) And could watch the skating rink at Fountain Square along with firework display at midnight.
While we visited Moerlein House for dinner, upon our return the staff had brought up cookies and sodas for the kids and a delicious cheese tray and bottled waters for the adults. A nice surprise.
Although it was a very busy weekend, we were treated like VIPs by the staff and GM, Wayne Boddington. We look forward to making this NYE event an annual tradition in Cincinnati.

Room Tip: Ask for view of Fountain Square, of course!

The rooms are a good size and the standard westin bed but could use a makeover. The price we paid at 110 a night made it a good value for a reasonable quality hotel. Not high end or boutique ( which I prefer) but a solid , decent but uninspiring hotel. Would I stay there again. Yes. Would I look around before booking Also yes

My family and I stayed at this Westin during the holiday season to visit family in Cincinnati, and it was a wonderful stay. We had the suite on the starwood preferred floor and it was extremely comfortable for us. The bistro downstairs, ingredients, was great for breakfast and we recommend it for their delicious paninis.

My family and I stayed at the Westin in December. The lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We loved our spacious rooms as family! The staff is very friendly, eager to help and really pays attention to detail. One of the nights we were there, we didn't feel like venturing out for a drink and stayed at the bar. It was a nice cozy bar with a great choice of drinks and cocktails, and attentive staff.

The location ended up being a great location to get to know the downtown area more, go to the square and nice restaurant. We will be staying there again!

I was looking for a place to stay while attending a Bengals game. I came across The Westin Cincinnati and I have to say what a excellent hotel. The staff, location, the view everything about the place was very nice.
If you are looking for a place downtown then this is it.

Room Tip: Take the dollar trolley around the loop.

Stayed for three nights for a conference. The overall experience is very good. I had only breakfast there and it was good. The service was average, but the best thing are the heavenly beds, the sleeping quality is excellent and the rooms are soundproof.

This is your basic Westin. Once you're in your room you could be in any city. But sometimes that's nice! Rooms are spacious and clean. Service is friendly and accommodating. They were out of decaf coffee for the coffeemaker, but gladly brought up a fresh pot of coffee to my room at no charge. Location is great. I was there the week before Christmas and there was a very festive feel with the huge decorated tree across the street next to the ice rink. Tons of shopping and dining options, as well as basics like drug stores within walking distance.
