My husband and I decided to stay at the Hampton Inn Cincinnati/Uptown area during a hospital visit. The location for this hotel offers perfect walking distance to campus and just blocks away from the hospitals. The location is also near the Cincinnati Zoo. The local Cincinnati police cruise through the parking lot and garage to provide an overall comfort of safety. (There is a $9 dollar parking fee ). The breakfast dining area is very comfortable and provide a nice relaxing atmosphere to catch the morning news, while eating from the great healthy breakfast bar selection. The hotel offers friendly desk attendants; ready to assist you. They offer a nice fitness center,, business room for wi-fi convenience/printing. We usually judge our stay by cleanliness and comfort of bedding. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and CLEAN...and the bed was very comfortable. I would definetly recommend this hotel for the University Area.
