“Excellent stay at the kingsgate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

We stayed at the Kingsgate from December 1-5. We had stayed here four years ago and it was wonderful so when we had to come back to children's hospital it was a no brainer to come back to this hotel. I had to have a procedure at children's so therefore I was not so excited for the trip but the Kingsgate staff made every effort to make it as enjoyable as possible. They were beyond helpful and kind and I would absolutely stay here again. Everything was perfect including the shuttle service, the bearcat lounge, room service, and the every single member of the staff. If we ever have to come back to cinicinatti there is no doubt we will stay at the Kingsgate again.

The staff at this facility make you feel like a celebrity. The Bear Cat Lounge staff make all feel at home and like family. The service, and food are awesome. The sense of humor of the Bar staff is spot on, and very inviting. If you are in the area this a great place to stay or visit.

Spent two nights here and the room was great. Nice spacious king room, comfy beds, nice bathroom, etc.
People very friendly.
You do have to pay for parking and must park under the hotel.
The breakfast was awesome with hot and cold items.
The area isn't the best but felt safe enough walking around to the hospital but you can tell the hotel lives off university business.
would I stay there again?? if i had to.

Thank you for your feedback regarding the hotel. We greatly appreciate it and allows us to create additional opportunities for our customers visiting the area. Our location is north of downtown by about 2 1/2 miles. known as the uptown area, we are on the campus of the University of Cincinnati, voted as one of the top 25 most beautiful campuses by Forbes magazine. This is primarily due to its beautiful green space and architecture seen throughout the campus. In addition, we are 1 1/2 blocks from the amazing Cincinnati Zoo. One of the finest and "greenest" zoos in the nation. By staying at Kingsgate you are able to utilize the campus recreation center, voted number one in the nation among all universities. Equipped with a rock climbing wall, lazy river, olympic size pool and plenty of other areas you will enjoy this part of your stay. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you back here soon.

I stayed one night at the Kingsgate Marriott as I was in town for an interview with Cincinnati Children's. The hotel staff were very accommodating throughout my entire stay, starting with my honoring my early check-in request for my stay. Check-in is not typically until 4pm, however my room was ready when I called at 9:45am. When I arrived to the hotel I found it to be very clean and comfortable and nicely appointed. It was snowing when I came in town, and it was pleasant to be welcomed in by a nice warm fireplace in the lobby. The interior design is not GRAND by any means, but it is clean, modern, and inviting.

My room was equally as pleasing…exceptionally clean and comfortable. The room was equipped with a fluffily kingsized bed, a lounge chair and ottoman, a desk, and a flat screen TV. There is also free wi-fi throughout the hotel which was much appreciated. The bathroom was also very clean, and I really liked the Thann brand soap, lotion, and hair products provided. They don't dry your skin out like most hotel soaps. I ordered room service for dinner that night and breakfast the next morning, both of which came very promptly and within the requested time. The food was good, not amazing but good!

When it was time for me to check out the next day at 12pm I was able for request the complimentary shuttle service which took me right to the doors of the main hospital. The front desk was kind enough to hold onto my luggage for me so that I didn't have to walk into my interview carrying a huge duffle bag. They also agreed to come and pick me up from the hospital and bring me back to the hotel afterward, although I had already checked out and they had no obligation to do that whatsoever! (REALLY appreciated that!) I was able to relax in the hotel lobby, and in the Bearcat Lounge while waiting for my shuttle to take me to the airport that evening. There were also computers in the lobby for me to print my boarding passes ahead of time. Very convenient.

Overall I enjoyed my stay very much! Marriott Kingsgate is comfortable, clean, nicely appointed, accommodating, and convenient!

A typical Marriott, which in my opinion is quality. This hotel would be convenient for anyone who has to deal with the Cincinnati VA, or UC Health or the University of Cincinnati. Some roads leading to and areas around the hotel are a bit shady but it seem pretty safe around the hotel property.

Did not eat there but had a cheese appetizer and a few drinks at the bar. Sports fans take note Cincinnati Bengals stay here for all home games.

Room Tip: always get a room as high as possible...

Had a King room, it was very spacious. The bathroom was a nice size and very clean. The hotel staff was very nice and the lobby was clean and updated. No food other than the hotel within walking distance. We didn't try the hotel food, but friends said it was very good. I would stay here again. We needed a hotel near the Cintas Center and this worked very well.

Room Tip: There are only 8 floors to this hotel. Room 812 is a King bed room, it was very nice.

I chose the Kingsgate because it was the closest Marriott property to the Childrens Hospital. They do offer a Childrens Hospital discount. But for some reason, they do not appear on the list of Hotels you get from the Hospital. This facility really shines as a conference center with conference rooms downstairs and a large ballroom upstairs. The front desk staff were courteous and helpful when needed.

The restaurant and bar have a wide selection of food available. We were there for a week, and besides eating at the hospital, we did not see a reason to venture out for meals in the morning or supper at all. Which turned out to be a good thing, because there is not much available nearby except for a Subway and Zoup. The restaurant has a hot and cold breakfast buffet, as well as, a made to order omlet bar.

The bar has ample inside seating with several TV's. There is also a large outside seating area at the bar which overlooks a grassy area and water fouuntain between some buildings. The restaurrant menu is available through the bar.

In this facility the room sizes seemed to be a little larger than usual. A word to the wise, when we were there, they said the place was full, so we were not able to get a room upgrade. So, if you think you want a larger room, go ahead and reserve it first.

Room Tip: One side overlooks the street and garage parking deck. The other overlooks a large grassy area betwe...
