Though this hotel betrays its age (built in 1981) in its architecture, it is still a classy, comfortable place to stay in the heart of Cincinnati. On Fountain Square, across the street from Carew Tower, adjacent to the new streetcar, easily walkable to virtually anywhere in downtown (including Taft Auditorium and P&G Center), the Westin was a convenient headquarters for...

I have stayed at the Westin Cincinnati several times in the last few years and I have always enjoyed my stay. They are professional and courteous and anytime I've ever needed anything they have always exceeded my expectations. The rooms are very nice and well appointed. The location is perfect for the central business district. I've attached a photo of... More

OK, I've been platinum SPG member for, well, a very long time. I would have to say that there are much much better hotel options in Cincy - OK all the other options are better. I now know why my client doesn't do business with the Westin (but does business with most of the other hotels in town). I checked... More

We came in with the American Legion Convention this past August. We had an excellent stay. The management was nice, the front desk attendants were always friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the housekeeping staff when I passed them in the hallways. Always friendly and caring. I took advantage of the green program and received a $5 award that could be... More

Stayed here for business, was generally happy with the stay. As others have mentioned, the hotel is located in a central location and many restaurants are walkable. Rooms were average, service was what you would expect for a Westin. As others have noted, there was a lot of noise, which is my only complaint about the property.

I stayed at the Westin Sep 6 - 9th. Hotel was picked for me by my company based on its proximity to the local office. Very much business traveler oriented hotel.

Nice hotel centrally located. Close to the Riverfront and easy walk to Over the Rhein area. Across the street from Fountain Square. Good nearby restaurants. Staff is friendly and rooms are comfortable. However, elevators are very slow, parking is a bit pricey (expected in a downtown area), and if you are on the north side of the building, you will...

We had an enormous room looking onto Fountain Square. It was very very clean. The bed was enormous and very comfortable. They seemed to be reluctant to give you shower gel etc when you ran out, however if you went and asked there was no problem. However, on the first night we arrived there was a salsa thing going on...
