“Great Stay, First Class!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

I recently stayed for two nights at this hotel. I picked it mainly for it's great location, and good reviews. I was anything but disappointed! I was greeted as I pulled up to the drop off area out front by several friendly valet/porter/security men, who offered to get my bags and park my car. Check in was a snap, and the lady at the desk was kind and friendly. The place is beautiful and very well kept. From the front patio, Phelps bar (off the Lobby, and roof-top!), courtyard, halls elevators, and rooms, it was all top notch and very inviting. The two room suite was very nice and comfortable, with a view of the Park and Ohio River! All this and walking distance from countless restaurants, bars, museums and theaters! If staying in Cincinnati, you have to stay here!

3 days at this great hotel were perfect in every way. Great spot for seeing the city and for the Buckle Up Festival. Try out the roof bar for a great view. Lovely, helpful efficient staff. The room and amentities were really great and kept beautifully. Loved funky quirky Cincinnatti. Loved the Buckle Up Festival and the stay at the Residence just made everything perfect. Thanks y'all. Michele and Tim.

Room Tip: the higher the better and try to overlook the river.

Stayed in the Residence Inn for 2 nights in March for a business trip. The room was massive with a kitchen, 60" Television and king size bed. Really good service and nice staff. The location of the hotel is right in the center. If you have the chance to be in Cincinnati - this is the place to stay!

Just got home from visiting Cincinnati to see the Reds play the Indians. The Residence Inn was in a great area, right by a park. Our room wasn't up too high (4th floor) but had a nice view of the park and Lincoln statue. A higher floor would have probably had a nice river view. We were able to walk to everything, though it was a 10 minute walk to The Great American Ballpark. The hotel is near a pedestrian bridge so we were also able to walk over to Covington KY for lunch and where the Duck tour took off.

The breakfast was plentiful and yummy. Plenty of seating for everyone at the free breakfast. The other comments about the staff is true, everyone is polite and helpful. They really seem to care. The building seems to be some restored older building. Our room was clean and huge! Double sinks in the bathroom. Will definitely stay here again.

The staff and accommodations for our get-away weekend at the Marriott were outstanding. It is in a pretty area with historical Lytle Park right in front. All staff were so friendly and couldn't wait to offer help or advice in any way. Vallets always brought us our car so promptly. Doorman told us lots of history of area buildings, Lytle Park & Lincoln statue. The room was outstanding- spacious, clean, lovely design- though dark-since it we looked upon the next building. Breakfast was hot and cold foods as expected, though they were fresh and the staff kept all clean and food supplied efficiently. Would recommend they have 2 pots of the regular brew self- serve coffee- both days it ran out and we had to wait for the next pot. Location is not in or even next to the heart of downtown, Closest instead to P & G and Western and Southern business complexes but not many tourist attractions- except for the outstanding Taft Museum of Art at the end of Lytle Park. It is also near Sawyer Point river walk. If you don't mind walking a few blocks, then you must drive or take a taxi, you can find the great downtown restaurants, and Cincy events. Expensive($250) per night, so might find a better price more midtown.

Room Tip: request room not facing the building next door.

This is the 2nd time we stayed at this hotel. Both times the service was outstanding. Everyone went out of their way to make sure our stay was pleasant. The maintenance man an older guy with a bald head went above and beyond to assist us, he even remembered us from last year when he was a waiter. Lovely location and rooms.. Near all of the attractions, a lovely view of the fireworks and the Reds stadium. The roof top bar was nice and relaxing. We stayed on the patio. The hotel has a bbq grill and we spent the majority of our time back there relaxing and partying respectfully. The complimentary breakfast was awesome and the dinner offered for free Mon-Thursday. This hotel is a winner, well worth the money.

Room Tip: If possible choose the 1 bedroom with the door. These rooms are bigger and the living room is nice a...

From the moment we arrived until the minute we checked out we were treated like royalty! I have to say that i have never had such great service nor met such friendly people during a hotel stay. Not only were they all, everyone we encountered, pleasant... but seemed to really enjoy their job! Everyone from the front desk (Alex and crew, morning and nite crew)) to Dave and Dave (double "D") who took care of valet parking. One of the Dave's (tall Dave) even gave us a history lesson on the buildings/park in the area. Now the person who made the biggest impression on me was Angie who was part of the kitchen staff. She has to be one of the most pleasant people I have ever met! While she took time out to talk to my group and most everyone else she encountered, she never lost focus of what was going on around her...tending to everyone's needs, clearing tables and if nothing else just saying a pleasant hello or good morning to all who entered the dining area. When we commented that she really seemed to enjoy her job she commented that the Marriott was a great company to work for and you could tell by her attitude. There were several others in the dining room that were very nice also (Debbie and all the others, sorry can't remember all the names). I have to say that i don't usually write reviews but I could not wait to rave about this particular visit and hotel stay!!! Myself and sisters were in Cincinnati for the jazz festival and will be there again next year. Hopefully we will be lucky enough to get the same room (1013) which was great (great views) and see the staff again!
