Our conference was hosted here, but I wasn't able to get a room here for my entire stay so I booked the nearby Hampton Inn. After attending several events at the Kingsgate, it was clear that the Hampton can't compare. The Kingsgate has dining options, valet parking, and a lounge. Located within walking distance to campus, the Kingsgate also has a shuttle to further locations and a University shuttle runs every 10 minutes. The staff here is welcoming and friendly. The buffet breakfast is huge. There's no question where I'll stay the next time I visit the University of Cincinnati...the Kingsgate Marriott.
