“Gorgeous brand new property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

I recently stayed one night with my husband when we came to town for a Reds game/concert in Newport. The hotel was wonderful! The location was great - an easy walk to many restaurants and the ballpark. The room was beautiful, with a very modern look and one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, and a sparkling clean and modern bathroom as well. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and competent. We'll definitely be back!

This is one of the prettiest properties I have stayed in comparing it to the Las Vegas location. Ornate ironwork and Brass meets your eye when you enter. They did not try to hide the fact this is an old building but you would not know it from the rooms. State of the art Walk in showers that are easy to enter and exit. The roundabouts are not new but feel like they were just put in so it an easy walk in. New staff but old pros like they were just looking for a better home to work in. The Chef is amazing and the food is out of this world.
Well done Cincinnati!

We stayed at the hotel for our anniversary the first week it was open. The hotel was beautiful and clean Got it at a good price and great location. The best part of the stay was the service. Rebecca and staff were friendly and provided outstanding service. They were aware that it was our anniversary, so they had a treat for use in our room when we returned from the night out. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in town.

Nothing like a new fresh hotel. This place is hip, convenient, reasonably priced, huge rooms, comfy, clean, modern -- all the things you look for in a new hotel. Waiter in restaurant told me this was a $48 million investment In an old office building. The money shows. They've been open a few weeks only and a few kinks here and there, but nothing significant. The staff is friendly, eager, and professional in every way. Strong kudos to them all. Fitness center has everything you need for a travel workout. My ONLY criticism that is not entirely positive is that the lighting I the room is a bit harsh and at the same time shadowed. I would have a hard time doing work at night with the set up. My colleague who stayed in another room noted the same thing. But aside from this straight A's all around. Looking forward to returning.

I always stay at a Marriot, but this experience I have never had before at any hotel. From the first exchange with Shynai at check in to the Valet crew and especially Colin, this was an unbelievable visit. We were in Cincinnati for the 6th Circuit Court for Marriage Equality hearing, The staff at the Renaissance was the most engaged I have ever experienced. This hotel has only been open about 2 weeks but the building is from 1899. Our room was beautiful, beautiful bath and wonderful room service. When I asked Colin what made the difference, he said the Hotel Manager and her staff. Notice "her" staff. Women know what to do and I commend her for every member of her staff that we interacted with. Our server on Tuesday evening in the restaurant was new that day and she had been trained well. There were three of us, and we wanted to order off the menu and she came back and said that was not a problem. Do you believe this? Such service is so unexpected and so much appreciated. It was a little more than other Marriot's but you get what you pay for. Our court hearing was at 1 PM and we were permitted to leave our cars with valet until we were ready to leave town. Such care and consideration!

Room Tip: It is an old building with thick walls and noise was not a problem. The only down side was it took a...

You can't beat the location. Our family and friends stayed here to go to a Reds game. The hotel is brand new and not every floor is even open. The room layouts and amenities are wonderful. You cannot beat a new hotel. The gym overlooks 4th & Walnut and is nice and spacious.

The only issue we had was our shower had a drain issue. They were aware of the issue and had someone come up to fix it. Unfortunately the entire bathroom and surrounding carpet had already flooded.

They are still working out the kinks, but I'm sure once everything is up and running it'll be a great hotel for years to come.

Such a cool hotel with gorgeous colors, textures and design all throughout the hotel including the guest rooms - my king room was HUGE. The hotel is still in the pre-opening stages but it's only going to get better once everything is running smoothly. Huge gym with brand new equipment and free bottled water. Definitely recommend staying there - and it was just 2 blocks from one of the best meals I've had in a longgg time at BOCA.
