My family of four stayed here for two nights in a 2 bed/2 bath over Memorial Day weekend. I felt like we were in an oasis in the city! Taste of Cincinnati was literally right out the back door of the hotel, but we were never bothered by the people or the noise. Lytle Park is right across the street if your kids want to toss a ball; nice to look out the windows at green space, too! There is a terrace with seating overlooking the park, all along the front of the hotel (looked very comfortable, but we were too busy to stop and try it out.) We also walked to two Reds games, and it was a nice shady stroll just a few blocks west -- very convenient. Head a couple of blocks south and east, and you're at Sawyer Point and the Serpentine Wall. I enjoyed being away from the chaos of Fountain Square.
The room itself was divine, on the 10th floor with a view of the river and park. Spacious! All four of us could comfortably relax in the living room to watch TV (and the screen was HUGE!) Not once were we disturbed by noise from other guests, and I'm sure the hotel was quite full for the holiday weekend. The beds were extremely comfortable, and I'm actually considering going online and buying the Marriott Pillows. They were great. After the first night, one of my sons said "That's the best I've ever slept in a hotel." High praise, indeed.
The best thing about the hotel, however, is the staff. They were ALL friendly and helpful. And to me, the attitude of the staff can make or break a hotel stay -- I've been to beautiful hotels where the staff were rude or disinterested, and it makes for a miserable stay. The buffet staff made a long wait in the breakfast line pleasant. The valets were extremely nice and efficient (I was literally shocked at how quickly our car appeared when we were leaving.) And the front desk personnel were so warm and genuine; I love that they came out from behind the desk to talk to you, whether it was at check-in or just during a trip through the lobby. I felt like a person here, not just a room number.
1010 is a corner two-bedroom suite with great views!
