Staid in the hotel for 1 night but got charged for a 2nd night more than the first night for checking out at 2pm instead of noon. I called the management and there was no willingness to even consider reducing the charge for a second night we didn't even use. Really terrible management!!! Will never stay there again!

My friend and I checked in here for a "girls weekend" while she was in town on business. It is a very nice hotel, the contemporary art is intriguing, the staff is extremely helpful, and the yellow penguins make the stay amusing to say the least. Be sure to visit the rooftop lounge for a cocktail or two with incredible... More

Splendid hotel with spacious rooms with excellent bed and bathroom. Clean and modern. Beautiful and strong shower. Finally a hotel with a hairdresser which allows you to style your hair vs just blow some lukewarm air! On top it has nice smelling shower products (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotion). Well located downtown Cincinnati. You hear some of the outdoor... More

21c is an outstanding hotel. Centrally located in the heart of Cincinnati. Close to everything. Incredibly friendly staff. Excellent hotel for business or pleasure. The roof top bar is the place to be in town. Penguins everywhere and a blast to see where they'll show up next.

We were there for drinks and toured the entrance which was full of various art pieces, as we headed to the roof. The roof top is rather elongated and runs along one side of the roof. There are numerous couches, and a few tables, and no actual bar, but there are servers taking orders. The wine that we had was... More
