“Very Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Staff is wonderful! Lobby is beautiful! However, rooms are mediocre...there was actually gum stuck to the back of the nightstand in my room and it was highly visible. I received a discount staying there because I was attending a conference at Duke Energy Center which was very convenient but it was still almost $150 a night.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the lower floors. The elevators take forever if there is a crowd in the hotel.

We stayed in the north tower which was slightly better than our stay 2 years ago in the south tower. Room was small and bathroom very tight but clean. Construction in the lot next door began at 7:30 am. No extra sleep there! My husband tried the $14 breakfast buffet and found the food to be cold. Surprising since there were so many guests staying there. We need 2 packages shipped there and had to pay $11 to get them. That was a new rule from 2 years ago apparently. Waiting for an elevator during peak time was crazy. At least the convention center was right there. We probably won't stay there next year as I don't see any of these problem being rectified.

Our experience here was not as bad as I was led to believe by some of the reviews I read prior to booking. I called the day we were arriving and was able to get a room for less than the advertised rate. We were greeted by friendly hotel staff who even added skymile points to our account. The room was clean but, a little small. There is some updating that is needed like the TV for instance but overall it was a decent stay.

Room Tip: We were in the south tower. Had nice view of city.

stayed here because it was connected to the Duke Energy Center where I was attending a conference. The staff was great. Everything else was terrible. Stayed in the North tower. Needs serious remodeling. I guess these are the most recently remodeled rooms but obviously cheap products materials were used and not everything was renovated (bathroom tile, etc). furniture seems really beat up, and there are not enough electrical outlets. The rooms just feel cheap, tired, and unclean.

First room had what appeared to be cockroach excrement in the drawers, did not seem to have been properly cleaned, no coffee cups with the coffee maker, etc. Was very kindly given a new room - like I said, staff was wonderful. New room seemed cleaner, but cheese stick wrapper was on the floor at the edge of the bed, so maybe wasn't even vacuumed? the bathroom set up is terrible, no good counter space, the faucet seemed like it was going to fall off, windows in both rooms either had broken seals or hadn't been washed on the outside in a long time - very foggy.

the last time I was in Cincinnati, I stayed across the street at the Hyatt. It was far superior to the Millennium and the same price. I really wanted to like the Millennium. I think if they overhauled the entire hotel, made it high quality, and kept it super clean, they'd do much better. I would have been willing to pay more to stay there if it were as nice as the Hyatt, just for the convenience. Instead, I'm not planning to stay at the Millennium and in the future will choose the Hyatt.

Booked this hotel because we were going to a conference at Duke center. The price of staying at a Millineum Hotel is higher normally due to the higher quality. This did not fit the bill. Examples: sheets stained and torn, chair in room filthy with arms of chair soiled, no hot water in the mornings, elevators at peak times are not all working, bathroom small and rooms overall need overhauled. Very disappointing. Will not be booking here again when coming back.

Stayed there for a convention b/c of the location to the convention center. The wait for the elevators was a joke! I really hope they do some serious updating to add more elevators (if possible?). The wait to catch one wasn't as bad for me as the mid-lower level floors. People who wanted to go down ended up just riding the elevator up to the top & then all the way back down b/c they would be completly full if they waited for one on the way down. And they were full!! After the morning rush of getting to the convention it wasn't as bad. And i've read others complain about the noise & yes it was noisy, could hear the neighbors till 11. For the money the room was not up to date, old tv, small plain bathroom & the carpet was so matted & gross looking i didn't want to take my shoes off. Next time i will stay at the Hyatt just across the way & just walk outside across the street.

The hotel is a fine place to stay downtown. It is connected to the convention center so that is very nice. The rooms are nice, my room was clean but noisy. I don't know if there was work being done at the time? After 10 pm or so the noise went away. The "fitness center" was small and outdated. A few of the machines had out of service signs on them all week.
