My husband and I stayed at the Clifton House for our first wedding anniversary. The Clifton House is BEAUTIFUL! We stayed in the room that had the roof top garden. The owner is the friendliest and most accommodating hostess we've ever had. We felt pampered. We really enjoyed her sense of humor, too. The breakfast was fantastic...so, delicious! We are...

On our annual trip across country, we usually stay in Cincinnati for a one or two day stay. We have stayed at some very nice hotels while traveling through - The Mariemont Inn, The Marriott Kingsgate Hotel, The Queen City Club, and the Hilton Netherland Hotel.....all are worthy. This trip, however, we read about Clifton House in this Northern suburb...

.....14 of us gathered at the Clifton House from all over Ohio and beyond. Lovely accommodations. It was comfortable and inviting as we sat around the table, in the living room, and in the chairs on the porch for long stretches of time while we talked and caught up. Nancy is a wonderful host and very helpful. Our group filled...

Nop notch elegance, comfort, food, and friendly service! We loved the antique furniture, woodwork, stairway, and original artwork. Very interesting history from Nancy, who made us feel right at home. The chef's gourmet breakfast was excellent, and his food stories were fun. We loved it, and would recommend it to all!

We were lucky enough to stay in the cottage at The Clifton House this past weekend. It's a two story retreat that is separate from the main home and is very cozy and comfortable. The bedroom is upstairs which is a large room with an adorable window seat. The main home was beautiful with a stunning wrap around porch. We...

We came up to visit our son, who is in the DAAP program at University of Cincinnati. The Clifton House is located very close to the school. It is walking distance to a neat community of shops and restaurants. It's very safe to walk at night. We stayed in the cottage. The cottage gives you room to spread out, but...

My son attended UC for the past 5 years and it wasn't until his graduation that we discovered the Clifton House. He lives on the same street, otherwise we would not have known it was there. A delightful place to stay. UC hosts many visiting speakers here. Walking distance to university and restaurants (Ludlow). Quiet neighborhood of nice homes with...

We had a beautiful visit to the Clifton House. Our host, Nancy, greeted us with wine and fresh baked brownies, offering advice about dinner and weekend activities. She was charming and welcoming. Breakfast was incredible, starting with fresh, hot coffee sitting outside of our room door when we woke. We journeyed down to the dining room, following incredible smells. A...

I recently visited Cincinnati to visit a colleague at the University of Cincinnati. The University put me up in the Clifton House and it was comfortable, convenient, and generally an excellent experience. The morning breakfasts (during my stay, at least) were prepared by excellent chefs who are professors/instructors at a nearby culinary school. The Clifton House is on a peaceful...

After 27 years together, we had an ideal wedding in mind. Nancy at The Clifton House provided just that. The hospitality and professionalism she demonstrated while still providing an atmosphere of familiarity and elegant comfort was impressive. The mansion, itself, is beautiful with a dominant oak staircase ascending from the large entry hall. Every room is spacious and well-appointed. Our...
