We stayed at this hotel on one previous occasion and again the night before our son's graduation. During our son's time at University of Cincinnati, we used to stay at less expensive hotels away from campus. Once we started staying at the Uptown Hampton, we did not want to go back to the cheaper hotels. The staff members at the Uptown Hampton are extremely friendly, the hotel is new, the rooms are exceptionally clean, and the location is superb. The hotel was full to capacity the last weekend of April for UC graduation, and apparently management had stepped up and staffed up to serve the high volume.
