Located adjacent to the Center for Contemporary Art and across the street from the Aronoff Center for the Arts, 21c Cincinnati works to foster the ongoing revival of Downtown Cincinnati and strengthen its role as a cultural destination. Working with the Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC), 21c renovated the former Metropole Hotel and embraced the architecture of the historic landmark to create an exciting new space for guests to experience genuine hospitality, view cutting edge contemporary art, and enjoy culinary experiences that celebrates the region's sustainable producers. The world has changed over the last several months and here at 21c, we have made some changes too. One thing remains constant. Our top priority is the safety and wellness of our teammates and guests. Our website has everything you need to know to return to travel with 21c. We can't wait to welcome you back to Metropole and 21c Cincinnati!

Staff were professional, attentive, and friendly. Any requests were quickly addressed. Derek, Derek and Eric were particularly helpful. The staff at metropole were also engaging. Of course the hotel art is incredible.

Hotel's Favorite
This is one of a fantastic group of hotels built in newly-purposed spaces. Each includes fantastically original rooms, great restaurants, and wonderful works of art from the founder's collection. Each is unique, the art installations are changed regularly. A wonderful experience! We stayed once here and liked it so much we planned an entire two week trip around visiting each of the seven hotels! (There are more now...)

Stayed here one night on a road trip. Used the self park garage on Walnut a half block south of the hotel on the left. Walnut is one way. $18. Was fine except when I paid at the machine my validated ticket didn't come out. Fortunately there was a gentleman in the office next to the machine who aided me by digging the ticket out of the machine with a steak knife he had so presumably this happens regularly. If he hadn't been there I would have been screwed. Our room wasn't quite ready so we looked at the contemporary art in the galleries on the first and second floors. Room was fine. Didn't hear any street noise. Staff was very friendly and all I saw wore masks, not all the guests did however. Walked about a half block to Sotto for dinner. Italian trattoria type restaurant. Great food and service. Would consider booking it (you'll need a reservation} if you enjoy that cuisine. Prices fair. Had breakfast at the Sleepy Bee a few blocks away. Food fine but service marginal. Two waiters for total 4-6 tables and had to ask for a coffee refills. An overall impression from my limited travels during Covid is there are a lot of inexperienced workers in the hospitality industry. Multiple individuals shared with us it was their first week or even day. There is a mini bar frig in the room but it isn't stocked or turned on so we didn't take any doggy bags.

a great hotel in downtown Cincinnati, great location within walking distance to many attractions. The hotel is an adaptive reuse of a historic building with an art museum on the ground floor by local artist. The staff was very inviting and friendly, and took precautions with temperature testing and cleanliness throughout the hotel. The room was very attractive and comfortable, a great gym on the lower level. Parking is valet for $38, but there is public parking at the corner for $18. We were here from Friday night to Sunday so the public parking was not crowded. Highly recommend staying at this hotel.
