My wife attended a conference in the Kenwood area of Cincinnati this past weekend and we stayed at the Hannaford Suites. The hotel is designed for "extended stays" and I will try to focus my review on its functionality. Our suite had a small kitchen area with a full size refrigerator, small sink and two burner stove top. The kitchen counter partially separated the kitchen area from the living area and was designed to permit one person to sit at the counter to eat. The living area consisted of a pull out couch, coffee table and chair that was also used for eating at the counter. The TV was in an armoire that also contained several drawers. The bedroom contained a king size bed that was fairly comfortable as well as a second TV armoire with drawer space. There was a desk and chair in the bedroom which I found somewhat odd since it was next to the bathroom door, away from the window with poor lighting. There was a large closet (with ironing board and iron) in the bedroom. The bathroom was fairly new with good ventilation, but was somewhat small. The overall condition of the suite was very good. The carpet was clean and in good repair as was all of the furniture. There is no daily housekeeping service and if you need towels, additional toilet paper etc, you need to get it from the front desk but remember it is an extended stay facility and not a luxury resort. The hotel provides free wireless internet that while a little slow was adequate. Rooms on the side of the hotel where our room was located face a highway and if you are not used to some noise at night might be a problem and I would recommend asking for a room facing the parking lot.
The hotel also provides free continental breakfast with an omelette station. We tried the breakfast once, and while it was convenient I wouldn't recommend it. The bagels were "wet" as if recently defrosted and the omlette was made with what appeared to be egg beaters. The cook did a good job ( and apparently has other functions at the hotel as well as he was seen sweeping the parking lot), but the flavor was lacking and the omlette a little runny. The exercise room was functional and had a weight machine, free weights, elliptical trainer, exercise bike and treadmill. There is a TV in the room as well. Towels were provided, however, if you want water to drink make sure you bring money for the vending machine. The hotel staff we encountered were courteous, friendly and very helpful. Our overall experience at the hotel was positive.
The Hotel is across the road from the Kenwood Town Center Mall which is very big and contains many quality stores and restaurants. There are numerous restaurants in the area which range from chain restaurants such as Outback and Red Lobster to fine dinning such as Carlo and Johnny which serves wonderful seafood and prime steaks and I highly recommend it.
If traveling in the area the Hannaford Suites is an excellent choice and a good value.
