This does not do justice to the name Westin Hotels Room size is good, and it stops there ! Dull , rooms requiring major refurbishment, and seem to be unclean Service is poor, the only place where it is ok is the guy who helps with the bags. Everything else is just too slow and too unfriendly ! It's almost...

Great location if attending an event at US Bank Arena. Valet or self park in the garage attached to the hotel. Located in the high rise business area across from fountain square & safe. Spacious suite with sitting area, desk & floor to ceiling widows (our room overlooked the square). Nice modern decor. Large sink area in bathroom & huge...

Stayed here for a night while my boyfriend and I were in Cincinnati and decided to stay overnight. Loved the location of this hotel, definitely one of the nicer areas in Cincy, and closely to some stores, lots of restaurants, and bars. The hotel itself looks a little older than other Westins I've been to, it definitely needs some TLC....

We came to Cincinnati for a concert at the US Bank Arena. It was just a short walk to the arena and to the multiple bars and restaurants in the area. I would definitely recommend if you are needing to stay downtown!

Went to Cinci to catch a Bengals/Browns game! This hotel was really close to the stadium and tailgating...the room was huge and the location perfect. We drove in and didn't get lost - always a plus. Also game day was a ton of fun!

We stayed at the Westin while in town attending a concert at US Bank Arena. The location is excellent with valet parking available. Check in was quick and staff was friendly. We chose not to wait for a room over looking the Square since we were only there for 1 night. The room was very large, beds were comfortable and...

The bed was awesome! Best sleep I've had in months. Parking can get a little pricey at $17 for self parking overnight. The hotel is beautifully appointed and right across the street from Fountain Square. Perfect place for a romantic weekend getaway if you're in the mood to spend the money.

I booked several rooms last minute and despite the fact that many hotels were fully booked The Westin was able to help me out. We were treated wonderfully from the front desk staff to the bartenders and valet parking. The rooms were quite, the bed wonderful, and I had a great view overlooking Fountain Square. My hat's off to Matthew...

Hotel faces Fountain Square. Parking garage next door. Valet available. Check in and out was quick. Room was good size but dusty. Beds were comfortable. Refrigerator in room, a plus. 10 minute walk to venues and restaurants by the river. We were here for a Garth Brooks concert at U.S. Bank Arena. It was a great night for us in...

Love the heavenly beds at the Westin. I have stayed at this hotel several times and never have had any complaints. Hotel is convenient and just across from Fountain Square so very convenient for Oktoberfest or to walk to the Stadiums for sporting events.
