We were in Cincy for a convention and wanted a place to stay that was away from the convention crowds. What a pleasure it was to head back to our room after a long day of speakers, exhibits, and purchasing to our quiet room. The neighborhood is very peaceful, yet just a block or two away is a very happening area with all sorts of unique shops, restaurants, and bars. There was on-street parking reserved specifically for guests as well as a small lot at the rear.
Our room with private bath was on the second floor and while a bit on the dark side, it was very comfortable and fit our needs perfectly. The sink was in the bedroom rather than in the bathroom making it much easier for us to both get ready in the mornings without tripping over each other. The bed was comfortable, not too hard and not too soft with plenty of pillows for chosing your favorite. A desk and chair were in the room in case you are needing to do some work, as well as a wardrobe for hanging clothes, a luggage rack, a good sized dresser, television with many channels, and a beautiful old piece to sit on and tie your shoes.
Breakfast was a treat, plain and simple. Friday morning we were served what I would bet is the best continental breakfast I have ever had. There were bagels, pastries, muffins, orange juice, coffee, and fresh fruit with yogurt. Saturday morning we were served much the same with the addition of omelets, bacon, and waffles.
This was our first B&B stay, and surely will not be our last as we enjoyed the laid back atmosphere so much. When our convention time is set for next year, we will certianly be registering at the Symphony again.
