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!

Absolutely disgusting hotel. Staff very friendly. Cleanliness horrid. Upgraded room to find a PUDDLE on my carpet as soon as I walked in the door, couch was SOAKED, mini fridge not working but had a puddle of what looked to be syrup inside, LONG BLACK HAIR ON MY BED. Called down to switch rooms and they put me in a “clean room.” Part of the upgrade was a bugger tub to take a bath after driving 12 hours. set up w a regular size tub because that’s all they had to offer even with the full upgrade charge. Got to the room had a broken tub. maintenance had to come up and fix the drain. Did not offer any compensation until checkout when I reiterated that my stay was not pleasant. Will never go back. Complete disappointment and especially in times of Covid for it to be that dirty is absolutely disgusting. Avoid at all costs, save your money and go somewhere CLEAN!!!

We love 21c Museum Hotels and have visited all of them more than once. Cincinnati is absolutely at the top of the list. Great rooms, great service, fantastic location, incredible restaurant. The staff is ready to serve and does so with grace and a wonderful friendly manner. The art is not what you are expecting but will leave you happy that you saw it.

In the middle of the night, the lights started coming on and off. I also started sneezing terribly while in the room. I checked out early, even without a refund, which the hotel and the booking company both said was the responsibility of the other one. I don’t recommend this place.

We vacationed in Cincy to view the museums and city sights and thought what a novel way to see contemporary art in the hotel itself! We were not disappointed in the diversity of styles and mediums. The room was very comfortable. Do request maid service as it was not automatic. The bellmen were very responsive to our requests. The web doesn’t mention it has a Nespresso machine! Well Done!

Our room was extremely comfortable and quiet. We loved the central location - walking distance to everything! OTR, the River, the ballparks and even Kentucky were all just a reasonable walk away. Greatly enjoyed the spa experience. Room was an upgrade (thank you!) but was a little dim as the window looked out to a Service shaft. Overall a great hotel and a great experience. Loved all the art and the camel collection!
