This hotel is located next door to a liquor store and cigarette shop, both with bars across the windows. Several people hanging out at both locations. Hotel itself is run down. I would recommend families pass on this one!

Thank you for your review. I realize the liquor stores do not make the best impression, we are undergoing a full renovation at the end of the year. Sincerely, Beth Wuestefeld More

First must say this location is pricey for typical Hampton Inn but this is not a typical Hampton Inn!! Beautiful historic building in the middle of downtown Cincinnati with spacious, completely modern rooms. Near to many restaurants, shopping, and businesses. Walking distance to riverfront, baseball stadium, fountain square, etc. Courteous valets, attentive staff, well stocked breakfast, clean facility.

Thank you, however, it seems this review was meant for the Hampton Inn Downtown which used to be the Cincinnati Enquirer building. I agree, they did a wonderful job renovation and keeping the historical value :) Beth Wuestefeld More

Disappointed with the overall quality of this Hampton, not up to par with other Hamptons I've stayed. Furnishing are outdated, carpet in the room was extremely dirty and sticky. I would hope this location will be refreshing its rooms soon.

Hotel is very mediocre in everything. Parking lot is too small for this number of rooms, and those arriving after 9pm have to double park. Breakfast is very so-so, and not impressive like what I am used to in Hampton Time Square. Finally cleaning of the shower is nearly non-existent, I think service girl just turns hot water on for...

Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Especially Zack who assisted us at check in and with the lost flowers. The staff were very welcoming and made our stay a pleasant one. The room was clean and the breakfast was good. The location was convenient to a variety of venues.

Check in was simple and staff was friendly. But the room was gross. It was very dusty around beds and night stand. There were visible food bits behind night stand. 4 spiders smashed onto walls. Highly dissatisfied!

I think I've traveled so much and stayed in so many Hampton Inn & Suites that this hotel disappointed me a little. I'm a female traveling alone and I arrived around 9pm and it just felt a little seedy. The hotel itself was nice enough, but the area around the hotel made me nervous. A liquor store is next door...

We stay in the hotel room we have to go to Cincinnati Children's Hospital. The location and the complimentary breakfast every morning is fabulous. This hotel is clean, the staff is very friendly and the rooms were clean.
