The staff was motivated and energized. The room was cozy and stylish.
Inside---the hotel was quiet.
Outside---downtown Cincinnati on a Saturday night---not so quiet.
Food, drinks and service at Metropole were terrific. However, Metropole can get loud. Many of the tables are close together. When the dining room is full of customers on a Saturday night you almost feel the need to shout to be heard over the noise if you want to have a conversation--- so the noise escalates.
I think breakfast might be my preferred time of day to be in Metropole.
(We might have gone to Jean-Robert’s Table for dinner, but the convenience of dinner at Metropole across the street from our ‘War Horse’ play at the Aronoff couldn’t be beat.)
We asked to see one of the hotel’s suites. We were taken up to see one of the luxury suites that was unoccupied. It was lovely.
The morning of checkout, many streets in Cincinnati were closed for the Cincinnati Reds Opening Day parade. We were in town for theater, not sports, and were kind of blindsided by the street closures. Driving out of the city was difficult.
Note to hotel: When there are street closures downtown for parades and such, it would be nice to alert your guests ahead of time with a note under the door.
If I could change one thing about the 21c Museum Hotel---I would add a cinema where guests could watch movies (like you can do at the Firmdale chain of hotels in London). That would be so cool.
A pleasant stay, overall.
