We were here for one night for concert at the riverbend music center. This hotel is in a good location with a ton of fast food places surrounding the hotel. The room was nice and clean and the staff were friendly. Parking is free and plentiful. I would stay here again.

My wife and I returned to the Holiday Inn Cincinnati Riverfront over the long Fourth of July weekend. After our previous experience (http://bit.ly/29xFjXB), we are pleased to report that housekeeping was much improved. Only one minor issue but overall great service. The entire staff is friendly and helpful and the newly remodeled room was great. Would definitely return.

Our flight was cancelled and the manager of the hotel was fabulously helpful in crediting us for the night and holding the room for the remainder of our reservation. We stayed at this hotel previously for Reds games and it is so convenient and a great value!

This is the worst hotel stay I have ever had. The first morning of our stay, I walked down to get some ice. As I was walking back to the room, I witnessed a housekeeper having a crying fit in the hall. She was surrounded by all of the other housekeepers. It was quite a commotion. The second day of...

We stayed at this hotel last weekend and expected that we would have a view of the river based on the name of the hotel - Riverfront. Instead we had a view of the levee holding back the river & no river to be seen. Having said that, the hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. Our only issue... More

The hotel itself is very simple, has somewhat of a rural charm - some renovation touch ups could be great - especially with the doors, had problems with keys pretty much all the time. Staff is nice and very kind. Reminded me of Twin Peaks in a good way.
