My husband and I stayed here two nights for a weekend getaway, and this property seemed like the best option because of location and amenities. The service was friendly, and the hotel does have a good location.
If you're lucky enough or willing to pay enough for a view, it's nice to see the river and the Cincinnati skyline. However, we expected more given cost and the Embassy Suites brand, which is supposed to be more upscale than other Hilton brands like Hampton or Hilton Garden Inn. Other than more space set up as a suite, I don't think this property offered anything more than Hampton or Hilton Garden Inn, and I think HGI actually has nicer facilities for better prices.
The room was a little worn down, and the property was so noisy. During one of our two nights, the property was packed with families, and some unchaperoned children woke us up in the wee hours. We could hear doors slamming and children running way past anyone's bed time, and we had to call to complain.
Breakfast was impossible to get as the lines were so long. The cooked-to-order breakfast was actually a standard breakfast buffet with the only cooked-to-order option being eggs. I expected sit-down, restaurant service--not a buffet that was no better than at Hampton Inn and no place to eat except back in our room. The manager's reception was also disappointing, with hordes of people fighting over a few pretzel sticks.
This was our first time staying at an Embassy Suites, and we splurged because it was a much-needed getaway. But for the price we paid, the experience should have been better, and had I know the property was nothing special, I would have stayed elsewhere.
