“Way better that the Holiday Inn Express I was going to stay in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

First let me say that Customer Service was great. Darren, the Manager when I arrived could not have been more friendly and helpful. Set me up with a great room which actually a huge room. While it may be a little dated, it more than served the purpose. Not in the heart of Fountain Square, but only a 5 minute walk away. Actually liked that better because of less congestion. Want to go somewhere, they have a van that will take and drop you off to restaurants, clubs, casino(when it opens), ball games, etc... Parking lot around the corner or through the maze was cheap, buck an hour or $6 for overnight. So glad I stopped to check it out. I will be back and stay there for sure.

Room Tip: Only tip I have is to check out the subliminal message in the maze from the hotel to the garage. Ma...

This is not a new, sparkly hotel. What it is is a clean, comfortable spacious hotel. Our room was clean as was the bathroom. Loved the 'suite' idea with the separate bedroom. Full kitchen. All for an amazing price. Well located for downtown events. Very friendly staff. Knowledgable and willing to help. Even the resturant ion the property had amazing food and drinks at a reasonable price. Topping all this off is the shuttle available to do drop off/pick up service to local events. We were very pleased with our stay!

We came from Ann Arbor MI and attended the Mike Epps Comedy Show @ the US Bank Arena Feb. 14, 2013.

Although the website photos are misleading the 1 Bedroom Suite w/balcony was great for the price. The suite was clean and spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful with directing us through the downtown area. Especially Darren the frontdesk clerk he was polite and familiar with downtown and got us where we wanted to go. Will the shuttle driver was also a big help. We would certainly stay here again. Btw, check out What's in the Skillet Restaurant great place for comfort food like mac & cheese, fried fish, green beans, peach cobbler etc....

Room Tip: Close to everything. Perfect location if you are staying downtown, everything is within walking dis...

I've stayed here several times and find the location excellent and the staff friendly. Definitely excellent value for money and great for families and groups. The kitchen and large size fridge make it easy to do some self catering. We were able to work comfortably in the suite as well as entertain. The Wi-Fi was fast and easy.

Some suites are more comfortable than others with newer furnishings and better layouts. I recommend that if you like a room, jot down the number and ask for it again.

I read EXTENSIVE reviews about this hotel before booking. The price beat everyone else, the location is perfect and the size of the rooms are incredible for what you pay! The only thing that prevented me from wanting to book the room was everyone who complained about the "outdated" amenities. I have just spent my first night here and there is NOTHING wrong with the amenities in this room. The living room has flat screens the kitchen and furniture are fine. No the appliances and furniture are not BRAND NEW but who in the HELL cares for this price!? Everything in this hotel is super clean and up to code. The hotel is located DIRECTLY in the middle of downtown Cincinnati so you are within walking distance of bars etc. The hotel has a parking garage you can park in (at a small fee) and the staff was super friendly! The room I booked has a balcony that is huge! Anyone who says this hotel isn't worth it is an idiot. I turned down choice privilege points at another more expensive hotel to stay here. I WILL be staying here again.

Room Tip: Room with balcony is awesome.,

No boutique hotel but only one was twice the price. Decently clean. Comply bed. Decent water pressure. You need to hold toilet handle down and bathroom sink drain was too slow. Room 608 was facing street and was loud all night with passing cars and emergency vehicles. If had to stay here again I would ask for other side or where the quiet side was. One staff person I met when checking in was friendly.
