“Great hotels make a difference”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

This hotel was great. Very clean, quiet, and the employees at the front desk were very helpful with places to eat and how to get there. We live in Indiana so we had no idea how to get anywhere. Breakfast was free and they had plenty to choose from.The only thing that I can say I didn't like was that you have to pay for parking in their parking lot or find a place nearby to park. I think the fee was $9.00. The price of the room wasn't too bad either. We paid $151.26 for one room for one night with two queen beds. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

I reserved three rooms at the Hampton Inn for me and my two Japanese guests. We ended up getting three studio King suites. They were spacious and clean. The breakfast was wonderful, lots of choices and we felt taken care of. These rooms were the best value of any of the hotels that we stayed at over a three day period which included stays in Sacramento, CA and Concord, CA.

My stay was very pleasant during the three days I stayed at the Hampton. We did have to pay 9 dollars a day to park in the parking lot outside from the Hotel. The area was little tight to get in and out driving but I guest this normal for big cities. The Hotel staff was very good.

Hotel was modern and immaculate, very good complimentary breakfast buffet. Staff was pleasant and accommodating. The only possible complaint would be that the parking spaces are a bit too narrow. Definitely worthy of a return stay.

Room Tip: If you a far from the elevator, it can be quite a hike.

I've read some of the other reviews and yes there are some beat up looking college rentals but I expect that being so close to the college. We were moving our son to Cincinnati for school so it was a great location.

Our room was spacious and extremely clean. The housekeeping crew were very kind. The free breakfast was like no other! Waffles, pancakes, eggs, sausage, yogurt, loads of fresh fruits, cereal, and more! The staff was also wonderful there as well.

We did have a drunk man approach us in the parking lot and he was a tad verbally aggressive. We kept walking and entered the hotel, went to our room and called the front desk. They were going to take care of it. We have had the same kind of thing happen in other cities we have visited and it would not keep us from staying here again.

It was also walking distance to the university as close to the gas light district which has some great places to eat. You can also get late night pizza delivery from several wonderful eateries.

The hotel itself was what you expect from a Hampton. However, we stayed in room 318 and had to call the front desk 4 times after 11:00 PM to have them do something about the excessive noise on the floor above us. To their credit, they did send security each time, but then the noise started again within 10-15 minutes. The floors and walls are very thin, thus allowing more noise than what you'd expect.

Outside of the noise, the parking is not very good. You either arrive and stay at the hotel early, or you risk parking your vehicle in a "sketchy" garage with no security for your vehicle. Again, very odd for a Hampton.

If I was going to Cincinnati again, I'd find someplace else to stay.

Room Tip: Ask to stay on the top floor!

Sometimes the guests that park at our hotel do not notice the several security cameras that are placed for safety and security not only in the upper parking area but the lower garage area as these are placed strategically for a reason.

The City of Cincinnati owns the Parking Facilities of the hotel (as they do many other business parking areas). Because of this, the City of Cincinnati Police Department patrols these facilities very often and to date, this hotel has not had any incidents of crime either to vehicles parked in the hotel parking area or at the hotel itself.

The noise issue should not have continued after Security warned the guests above you on the 2nd time. However it is possible that each time there was a complaint, it was not the same room. I apologize for this as I know this can be quite annoying when trying to rest in your own room.

I'll review the handling of noise complaints with our Security Staff and ask that they take greater measures to insure that the noise issues do not continue so that there are no future guest disturbances.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we do hope you give our hotel a second chance to change your impression.

What looks like a brand new hotel near the U of Cincy campus and hospital, but the housing around the hotel looks a little slummy or just think of beat up college houses, but the place was nice and close to where I needed to go, took just a few mins to get to downtown.

As you can tell when visiting - the area in and around our hotel and the University of Cincinnati is undergoing a revitalization and resurgance of growth! Of course during this period there will always be real estate that is in transistion that hasn't exactly succumbed to the wrecking ball that blights the area during this process - but rest assured within the next year or so, Uptown Area will be a destination spot not only for those visiting the University of Cincinnati but for those guests visiting the area for entertainment and leisure.

Thank you for your review and we do hope you return to our hotel.
