Great location, helpful and pleasant help, and the breakfast buffet ( I'm sorry I forgot her name) was beyond cheerful and on the spot. They are upgrading and I got one of the new rooms which was fantastic - the bath, the spaciousness, etc. Right on the shuttle stop and close to everything else for the late night munchies. I...

The hotel was under going renovations but everything was done during the day. Our room was exceptionally clean and the staff was wonderful, they helped us with breakfast with free food vouchers.

The room was spacious but everything is shabby. To get hot water in the sink or the shower be prepared to wait at least 10 min. Imagine how convenient it is in the morning. The reception desk is very helpful but they hardly can do anything. We asked for a small fridge in advance and it was delivered, but it... More

Undergoing renovation to modernize which is needed. I'd probably wait until it's done. Restaurant on premises but lots of restaurants within walking distance. Trolly/shuttle gets you to Cinci sports venues and convention center. Very friendly staff who handled issues. Small bathroom but nice shower. Internet works well. Outdoor pool and fitness room.

Good beer selection including some crafts, and also a nice selection of liquor. Really the service and attitudes of the staff was great the whole week I was there. Very friendly people.

Dirty, mold, broken toilets, really dirty, stains on the mattresses. Way over priced. bad internet. You will probably get sick from the A/C because the dont clean the filters. "State of the art gym" is a joke! Weird body fluid stains? No towels, now wipes! Unless you just want to drink and pass out? Dump!
