“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We stayed her on our way to Michigan. The hotel is located close to the campus of the University and is a nice location, although I didn't see a lot of dining options. So we had to head north on 75, at dinner time.

The room was clean, beds are comfortable, and the staff is very nice.

We were traveling with the kids and there's no pool. My bad for not checking this out, before hand.

Would stay again, just not promise pool time, if the kids are traveling with us.

Conference facilities are very nice, especially if you get one of the amphitheatre rooms with raised tiers, desks with electrical outlets, etc. The hotel package for the company meeting I attended included buffet meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and, although I was unable to take advantage of them, other attendees raved about the food. Morning and afternoon snacks were also provided, as well as an airport shuttle pick-up for incoming trainees. I have no idea what the cost of the package was, but it was excellent.

I had a room on the eighth floor overlooking the fountain (as recommended by TripAdvisors). Pleasant view, quiet floor. My room was nice, albeit pretty typical Marriott. Furnishing and decor overall seem pretty new... not bad at all. Staff is excellent... friendly, helpful, couldn't ask for more. Room service for dinner was above average, although as pricey as it is at any hotel like this. The downside is there are almost no other places to eat within a block or two. I enjoyed walking around and through the University of Cincinnati campus in the early evenings, and there is a Five Guys, a Currito Burrito, a Panero's, a Toppers Pizza, and a DiBella's Subs on Calhoun Street (maybe 3/4 mile uphill). Lots of hills in this area! The zoo is an easy walk downhill about two blocks south, but it closes at 6:00 PM in the summer. There is also a 24 hour CVS pharmacy at Calhoun and Vine, as well as the roughest Kroger's (or any grocery store) I've ever been to in the same general area.

This Marriott has no concierge lounge or floor, but they comp you breakfast at the restaurant if you are entitled to those perks. They also don't have a pool, although the front desk does have an arrangement with the University athletic center for guests to use their pool and facilities. However, that required more effort than I was willing to go to.

I would gladly stay here again. It was a very pleasant 7 nights. Kudos to the front desk staff in particular for being extra pleasant.

Room Tip: High floor overlooking the fountain.

I stayed at the Kingsgate Marriott for eight days recently and was pretty impressed. Comfortable, quiet rooms with a desk and chair, and an upholstered chair, plus a small fridge. The beds have too many pillows, and the big ones are not useful, except for putting one's feet up. However, once the extras were removed, my bed was comfortable. I would have appreciated a blanket. The duvet was too hot, and just a sheet wasn't quite enough. My room had a big TV with lots of channels. The alarm clock was easy to figure out. I used the fitness room once and it was fine. The meeting rooms were quiet and nicely furnished. The hotel provided buffet meals and break buffets as well. After a few days, it really was too much food to see day after day, when we just sat in between meals. If chosen wisely, the food was quite healthy, but beware of unexpected beef and other meats in the salads. The restaurant patio overlooks an interesting lawn and fountain. The hotel has no pool. The area is okay for walking, but there isn't much to walk to. Take the hotel shuttle and ask where to get off for shopping, sight seeing, etc.

I stayed here recently on a business trip to the VA Hospital in Cincinnati. Very clean property and very polite and attentive staff. The buffet breakfast hit the spot and helped get my day going. The room was perfect and the bed was very comfortable after a long day. Definitely a repeat stay property.

About average for a conference center hotel.Suites are a little small and in need of some upgrading.Bar area has no atmosphere and almost seems like an extension of the lobby.Service is slow and food just average.They do offer a nice breakfast and have a better than average buffet.The hotel location is great if you are headed to the university or to the medical center. Both are less than 2 minutes away.Be aware than on home football weekends the football team sometimes stays in the hotel and takes up a lot of rooms.The parking garage is ample most of the time but can be crowded if there is a special event going on.As a bonus they do offer a few balcony rooms which are a nice touch if the weather is decent but these are in very limited supply.Hotel staff are helpful and do know the area fairly well but other than the university and medical center there isn't a lot to do in the immediate vicinity.In general the hotel could use a few personal touches to make it seem more inviting such as a change in décor for the lobby and entrance.Get rid of the hi-top tables in the open bar area and soften the atmosphere.Still a good facility for business travel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side of the hotel have a little better view and tend to be quieter.

I recently stayed here and it was a wonderful stay. The hotel is clean and service is good. There are several amenities including a gym, which is quiet and sufficient for daily work outs. The food is basic and service is quick. There is a bar and a breakfast lounge, which serves basic American breakfast buffet. The room was spacious and clean and so was the bathroom.
