“Good choice for meetings/ visit to U of C”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Stayed for two nights. Room was comfortable, clean, modern and a good size. Hotel seemed set up for business meetings. Shuttle service offered to nearby locations. Hotel staff were very pleasant although a little frazzled.

Hotel was very accomodating and comfortable. The property is adjacent to the medical school and hospital, There are a few eateries within walking distance and the hotel will give you a ride to some other locations.

Room was excellent for working with a well designed desk area and a very comfortable corner chair.

Very quiet and the hotel was very accomodating on cleaning my room for a late morning meeting.

Stayed here for a night with my wife using Priceline. It was considered downtown Cincinnati but it's not close to downtown at all, very convenient to the University of Cincinnati though. Lobby was nicely appointed, rooms were large and clean, still felt like a newer hotel.

Nothing stands out as particularly bad but then nothing is special here either. If you have business at the university or at a local hospital then it is a reasonable stay. Otherwise look elsewhere. The room was ok except for the C which was noisy and put out very humid sticky air. The shower had some problems but the water pressure was fine. no fridge, coffee maker or microwave which i now expect in most rooms. The room service was on time but the food quality is poor and the value very poor. WiFi is better then average. parking only costs 10 per night.

Booked the Kingsgate for early move-in to the University of Cincinnati for one of my daughters. It was a simple one-night stop for us. The facilities are right off the main campus, very clean and inviting and only marginally more expensive than it would have cost us to shop around for something cheaper but further from campus.
We like it enough that we're booked there for Parents Weekend this year.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms that directly look into the office building next door if you at all like open drapes/nat...

This is a fairly typical convention-type Marriott. The rooms are quite well furnished and maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful. If you have business with the University of Cincinnati, it is really the only place to stay. Also nearby is Xavier. We went to a Reds ballgame and found it easy to get downtown (about 2-3 miles) and return. I occasionally have business in Cincinnati and usually stay at the Cincinnatian. However, their rates have recently escalated so as to make staying there unreasonable. The Marriott Kingsgate is a fine alternative

Usually we find at least one small thing wrong at every hotel we stay in, but this one is the exception. The room was perfect---7th floor looking south toward Cincinnati. Excellent bar, which stayed open late Saturday just for our group.

But it was the service which was amazing. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate us. We were particularly impressed with the young (and short) woman who went way, way out of her way to make sure we got to the rental car company before it closed.

Definitely one of best experiences we've had in a hotel.

Room Tip: We liked the rooms (south side) overlooking the city.
