I was there for the Macy's Music Festival which was about 4 to 7 miles depending on the cab ride.
This hotel provided a buffet breakfast for 2 each morning and it was one of the best Hotel buffet meal I have had. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly too and took care of all of our request. We traveled with another couple and we were able to get adjoining rooms which made communicating our plans for during our stay easier. The beds were very comfortable and the lobby decor was charming, didn't have a problem sitting there waiting for the group to gather. This Hotel was on the campus of University of Cincinnati away from downtown, but getting a cab was not problem. The front desk will provide you with a map and directions if you want to explore on our own
