“The best Residence Inn you will find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Stayed for 5 nights while attending a conference last week. The hotel is within walking distance of all the stadiums and a decent walk to the Duke Energy Convention Center. You can also walk across the bridge to Newport Kentucky. To get to the revitalized part of downtown it is a pretty long walk so a cab would be best.

The hotel itself has a lot of character with an outside lounge area in the back courtyard and a small comfy sitting area in front of the hotel looking over a park and the Ohio River. It is the 1st Residence Inn I have stayed at that has a restaurant and bar in addition to the lounge area.

The staff were all extremely friendly and even the staff in the kitchen knew many of the guests by name.

Not sure if I will ever be back to Cincinnati but if I am this will definitely be my hotel of choice.

Thank you to the General Manager Jason and to all the staff!

Room Tip: The river view rooms are wonderful. I was in a 2 bedroom suite and it is like being in an upscale ti...

Though the location is on the edge of downtown so not great for conference it is close to the Casino. The lobby staff were very friendly and helpful and really made my short stay enjoyable. The breakfast was better than similar hotels and the staff again was pleasant and helpful. When I asked the door staff about parking he told me that valet parking was 22 or meters on the street directly in front of the hotel were free from 6 pm to 8 am. So I parked 30 feet from the hotel door for nothing except the tip I gave the door guy . The hotel was either recently remodeled or kept very current nice decor and well designed rooms even though the building appears once to have been apartments. Cost was a tad on the high side for Cincinnati but not outrageous. Would stay here again.

My husband and stayed July 12th and 13th. Went to Dave Matthews Band concert at Riverbend on the 12th which was awesome. On the 13th we just hung out, explored the city, and visited the casino. We stayed here last year too...have to say it is one of the nicest Residence Inns we have ever stayed in. The staff is wonderful, from the registration staff to the valet parking guys to the restaurant staff...everyone was super nice. I have to say the people that do the breakfast are awesome...so accommodating and nice. Our room was large and updated. We enjoyed it so much! Cant wait to come back!!

This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. First, the valet who parked our truck was so polite and helpful with walking directions to the ball field (which is just a short walk away!), then we got to our room and it was beautiful and spotless. Wireless internet was easy to connect to. Bed was super comfy. Etc. We went to a ball game and got back maybe around 9:45, and headed into the bar area. They were happy to serve us food, even though it was a bit late. We ordered a handful of appetizers, and they were delicious. My husband ordered fries and we thought they might be old since it was late, but they were fresh. The waitress was awesome too, very friendly. I would definitely stay here again!

I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your comments. We have a special hotel, but even a more special team. I liked your comments about the breakfast crew. I feel very lucky to have Kenneth, Debbie, Latasha, and Angie. They are #1 in the brand for friendly breakfast service for a reason! Again, thank you for taking the time to review my hotel.

My family and I recently spent the weekend at the Residence Inn Cincinnati Downtown. The location is great - less than a 10 minute walk to Great American Ballpark. We could see the fireworks from the Reds game from our window. There is a beautiful small park just across the street. Historically, the building was built as upscale apartments and was renovated in the last two years into the current hotel. Very current amenities and very clean. We stayed in a two bedroom with a living room with pullout couch, and a full kitchen. The room is quite large with flat screens in the living room and both bedrooms. Each bedroom had a separate bathroom. We had ample room with five people. Breakfast was included with the cost of the room. The food service staff were all very friendly and accommodating - especially Kenneth. He was very cheerful! We will definitely stay here again.

Had a fantastic stay here for a weekend in downtown Cincinnati. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. We were able to walk to many different locations throughout the downtown area. The room was spacious and comfortable, especially for a downtown hotel. Would highly recommend this hotel.
