“Business Traveler Review of Residence Inn Cincinnati Downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

The downtown Residence Inn Cincinnati is an excellent choice for the business traveler. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The staff is very friendly and always at your service. The hotel and the rooms are very clean and well kept. The rooms are very spacious and are comfortable. The bar (The Phelps) is a great place to get a drink and catch up on emails or to unwind. Overall this an excellent hotel that I would recommend to anyone else traveling to Cincinnati on business.

First time staying here based mainly on my recent leaning towards Marriott brand hotels and the solid history of trip advisor reviews on this place. It did not disappoint. Friendly service and the suite - it was awesome. Kitchenette with nice cabinets, dishes - even wine glasses and a wine key.

The downstairs has a nice bar and lounge area with a decent enough selection of drinks and a nice atmosphere. Fairly easy to walk to most downtown places. We will be back!

Everything at the Residence Inn is above and beyond. The rooms are large and roomy and extremely clean. The location is perfect. It is walking distance to the Banks, US Bank Arena, the Reds stadium, and Paul Brown. The front desk is the best I have ever dealt with. They are on top of it. If you need a taxi, it is there within minutes. Our car was ready within minutes of us walking downstairs regardless of how busy they were. The breakfast is what you would expect at a nice restaurant. Very professional every step of the way.

We had selected the Residence Inn partly because of its location, but primarily because of the great reviews it received. We were not disappointed. It is in a great location, with easy access to sports venues, shopping, restaurants etc. It is also an attractive building and the interior is nicely appointed. We really enjoyed relaxing in front of the fireplace at the end of the day.

The biggest asset, however, is the staff. They were all excellent, and are easily on par with the standards of much "higher end" hotels (and would put some to shame). We were made to feel welcomed and appreciated right from the start by Michaela who checked us in and Brian who handled our luggage. It continued with the bar staff, the kitchen staff and everyone else we came into contact with. This is clearly a very well run hotel.

Our only disappointment was that the bar was not open for lunch - we had been planning on getting some food before we left for the airport on the last day. Not a big deal and it did not detract from our stay.

If our travels bring us back to Cincinnati, we will definitely stay here again.

Thank you for the excellent review of our hotel. I am very excited to hear that you found out hotel to live up to the great reviews we have received! I am especially excited to hear you found our staff to be our greatest asset as I could not agree more that it is the team in the hotel that makes the hotel experience a great one. I will absolutely share your great comments with both Brian and Michaela (two of our superstars!).

We will continue to look at ways we can expand our food and beverage offerings at the hotel to ensure we can provide an all-around great experience for each and every guest.

Thank you again for your great review and we absolutely look forward to your next stay with us.

I came to tripadvisor.com to add my review for this great hotel, and I am not surprised to find it has received the Traveler's Choice 2013 award, and is ranked #1 of 63 hotels in Cincinnati! Our car was promptly tended to by valet parking, and we were greeted by the two friendly desk clerks. My request for a room with a view was quickly and professionally accommodated, and that room was prepared as a feather-free room within five minutes of our arrival. Our one-bedroom suite was huge. The front desk staff also gave excellent recommendations for nearby dining, and were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel has been recently remodeled, and is very attractive and in keeping with it's historic past. The buffet breakfast was good, and the staff there also very friendly. Thanks for a great overnight stay; wish we could have stayed longer than our one night.

Room Tip: A room on a higher floor may offer a better view.

This is really a great place, right in downtown. Well put together with a professional flare. The breakfast was quite good and the guests seemed happy. There is no pool, but they have a fitness center. Limited food service outside of breakfast.

Room Tip: "Studio Suites" are still suites with a decent kitchen and sitting area.
