Retreat space in Cinci/NKY

I am planning a retreat for my team in November in Cincinnati. I do not live in Cincinnati, but my team lives and works there. I need to have two strategic planning retreats approximately 1-2 weeks apart. Each session will last 4-5 hours. I am looking for a "living room" type feel for approximately 10 people each session. I have thought about a hotel room suite, but not sure which hotel would have the best setup. In addition, my budget is less than $200 for the venue as I need to add other expenses to the retreat budget.

Any suggestions?

What kind of facilities do you have to have access to? TV?? Quiet area?? How formal does this set-up have to be? Because renting out a part of a restaurant might be easier considering your budget....

Given your budget and the fact that you mentioned a "retreat," check out Ohio state park lodges and conference centers, such as Hueston Woods, relatively near Cincinnati. There may be Kentucky state park lodges near Cincinnati.

If you want an historical location, check out the Golden Lamb in Lebanon.

Our office actually used a space at Glenwood Gardens that might be appropriate. www.cincinnatiusa.com/Attractions/detail.asp…

How about a Homewoods Suites or Residence Inn, or Marriott Towne Place Suites. These are like small apartments. Or perhaps Great Wolf Lodge: www.greatwolf.com/mason/groups/business-needs

Check out the Best Western in Mariemont. I considered having our leadership team retreat there but we decided to save some money and do it locally. We will be using it in the future however.
