Embassy Suites by Hilton Cincinnati - RiverCenter (Covington, KY)

Reviewed January 14, 2013

A great hotel near downtown with solid service, helpful staff, a convenient location, and fast access to downtown Cincinnati. While I could have stayed at a number of hotel in downtown Cincinnati, I opted for the Embassy Suites Riverside and was pleasantly surprised. The staff are very helpful -- clearly focused on making sure customers are well cared for. Nice rooms - very clean and well maintained (nice beds as well).

Breakfast was good, but not as well prepared as other Embassy Suites or Hilton Garden Inns (limited selection). Staff were attentive and very helpful during breakfast. The manager's reception in the late afternoon is usually busy and includes a variety of snacks and complimentary beverages.

Room Tip: Tip: Ask for a river view if possible. You'll have a great view of downtown Cincinnati as a resu...

We had the pleasure of staying in the presidential suite. The room was pretty awesome. Opening the doors to see a baby grand piano was amazing! The view from the balcony (only room with a balcony) was incredible. Positives - Room size, piano, balcony, many comfy sitting areas, double vanity in full bath, half bath, king sized bed. Hotel staff was also very nice. Negatives - Room was not as clean as it could have been (debris on floor next to the wall between the closet and half bath, cobwebs over window cornice boxes, handprints on mirror behind piano, toilet in half bath had dirt (rust) under the rim, and the carpets could have been vacuumed better in bedroom); jetted tub as a nice feature however if was very outdated, hard to get in and out of, the three walls of mirrors made being in it a little uncomfortable, and the timer on the wall was very inconvenient.

The Hotel is in a great area, but check-in is a problem. when you park in the front circle to check-in, you must go upstairs to the counter. Parking is not very convenient either, you must try to wrangle your luggage through a small door and up a narrow stairway, to the false lobby then go up to the real lobby again. I arrived later in the evening and valet parking and luggage service was not available. As for the hotel a standard Embassy Suites property, clean rooms and a courteous staff. The location of the Hotel is excellent and if I have business in the area, I would not hesitate to stay again.

Thank you for both your positive remarks and constructive comments regarding your recent stay. I read every comment and suggestion as this is how we learn ways in which to improve our hotel. I will mention that we are very close to installing more detailed directional signs to/from the parking garage area. The city-owned garage is not too "user friendly" and I can understand your comments regarding having a degree of confusion with parking. I hope the new signage helps assist future guests in finding their way to and from our hotel, once they park their vehicle. Should your future travels find you in the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati area, we once again welcome the chance to be of service to you and your business needs.

Stayed here for 7 nights and 8 days over the holidays. When we got to our room we thought it was the wrong room because there was a big stack of dirty dishes right outside the door. Those dishes sat there for a full 24 hours even after we called the front desk. We rented a 2 bedroom suite for our family of 4. When we arrived the room was freezing!! The next day maintenance came to fix the problem and told us that none of the heat in 2 br suites was working well. We looked at another room but the furniture was broken and the carpet eas very badly stained. The carpet in the hallways has been replaced and is nice but the carpet in the rooms is old and stained and the furniture is outdated. They charge $14.00/day to self-park or $24/day for valet. The breakfast is okay as most Embassy Suites but over the Holidays it was too busy for the few people working and poorly maintained. Housekeeping did a good job one day out of 8. One day they removed the dirty towels and did not leave clean ones, did not vacuum or empty the trash. Most days was only slightly better. Room service was surly and slow althought the food was okay. We called at 9:30PM to have them come pick up our tray from the hall and it was still there at 8AM when we went to breakfast and still there at 10AM when we went out to visit friends and family.

AS a Hilton Diamond member I stay in a lot of these hotels and this was near the bottom of my experiences with Hilton. The Homewood Suites' in Sharonville or near the airport are both better run and better values. I will stay at the Hampton in Wilder, KY before staying here again. Very, VERY disappointing!

The one plus was a great river view and the view of Downtown Cincinnati at night was beautiful. However it does not come close to making up for all the problems at this place.

Room Tip: Ask for a Riverview room or better yet - stay at a different hotel.

We stayed for three nights around Christmas time. The hotel was very clean and well run. The manager's reception with free drinks was a great bonus. The cooked to order breakfasts were also very nice. Great beds and two room suites. The location is perfect for sight seeing. It is close to downtown Cincinnati without being in the traffic of the city.

Most helpful and friendly staff. The complimentary cook to order breakfast and managers retreat were a great touch. One of the cleanest hotels we have ever stayed in The bed was very comfortable and helped me fall asleep easily. The location is great. Close enough to attractions but not so close that it is a nuisance. I'm sure if i went through with a fine tooth comb I could find something negative to say but would be hard pressed Over all this is a fine hotel.
