To those who know Cincinnati, the prospect of staying in Over the Rhine might not be on the triptik, but OtR is changing and the neighborhood offers interesting niches, such as the Symphony Hotel. More a B&B than hotel, the Symphony is in a renovated house located right across the street from Music Hall and the newly refurbished Washington Park. My room was very comfortable and he continental breakfast hit the spot. There are lots of new, small restaurants and cafes in OtR now. David, the manager, is an accomplished chef and a very nice person who knows a lot about the neighborhood and the changes that have come. As of August 2012, they were just getting ready to open a cafe next-door, a deck off the second floor and, I assume, additional rooms - so, it's only getting better. Highly recommended.
