Staff and facility were so friendly and inviting. Forgot all about the work week and enjoyed my stay with friends. Highly recommend the 21C Cincy. Loved my repeat visit at the hotel and look forward to another visit.

I travel 100+ nights per year; it takes a lot to phase me in hotels and I can sleep through most anything... except the horrible HVAC system that rattles as the system starts up & shuts down (about 2x per minute). I woke countless times. Also- the front desk is lack-luster, the rooms are small. artwork in hotel sparse, and...

After staying at the Westin Cincinnati for 15 years regularly I realized what I had been missing. The 21c is a totally different league. It opened my eyes to possibilities. Amazing experience. Sorry Westin. Hello again 21c I will be back next week.

Quick "spoil me" visit for a guy who is still working full time at the age of 70! He had a spa day, we viewed the art installations at 21C Museum Hotel, rested a bit then had a fabulous dinner at Metropole Restaurant. Museum staffers were helpful and friendly, from the valet parking guys to the restaurant staff. We both...

We stayed here with our 3 year old and we had a wonderful time. Although it is not a hotel I would have expected to be "kid friendly", the staff were so sweet to her and she had a great time. She loved all the yellow penguins and would hug them each time we came in. The staff were very...

They spoiled us and made sure every aspect of the stay was perfect. Very clean, very comfortable and will definitely stay again. The museum was very cool and the little artistic details even in the room was cool.

Really enjoyed my stay here. What a terrific addition to the downtown landscape!! The location cannot be beat, the staff is very professional, and the property is beautiful. I remember when this stately building was a run-down flophouse. They did an amazing job bringing it back from the edge of extinction. Big thumbs up!

We stayed only one night in this wonderful, funny and stylish hotel, but we'll absolutely be back! The exhibition of contemporary art was ver well curated, and next to the hotel, we found galleries and museums of high quality. The downstairs restaurant Metropole, is really worth a visit. In both the restaurant and the lobby, the staff was super friendly!
