This Westin is fabulous in relation to rooms and meeting space. It lacks its own restaurant though many high or medium range options are within walking. It sits on the downtown fountain square with great views. The bar is tiny. Great downtown location and meets the Westin standards.

Downside was the homeless right outside the hotel constantly bothering you for money. Tremendous amount of homeless outside of this hotel. I gave at least $50 dollars over my 4 day stay. Downside is you pay for wifi if your not a...

Fountain Square is directly across the street and great restaurants and the Arnoff is within walking distance.

I stayed here on business, the hotel is centrally located and I was able to walk to my client's offices. The lobby is located and the 2nd floor, and I was suprised when the taxi let me off that there was no one to tell me where to go, much less help me with my bag. Check-in was pleasant, the...

Let me start by saying that I am PICKY. If you are PICKY, continue reading. With every stay, once I get to my room I tear off the bedding to look for dirty sheets, go into the bathroom to look for hair in the bathtub, and before using towels I check for hair/dirtiness.

The Westin is my favorite hotel in Cincinnati. Convenient to everything, always accommodating, and the rooms can't be beat. If you get a room facing the Square, the views are nice as well. Parking garage is extremely convenient, and the staff is top notch.
