My son and I met a friend in his son in Cincinnati for a baseball game at the Great American Ballpark. The Embassy Suites across the river in Covington, Kentucky is an ideal location for the Cincinnati riverfront. It is an easy, pleasant and scenic walk across the adjacent historic bridge to the city. The hotel itself is typical of Embassy Suites with the indoor atrium, included breakfast, and manager's reception. The room was clean and what you would expect from this chain - perfectly adequate for our needs. Some of the rooms must have a great view of the Cincinnati skyline, but these cost more and were not necessary for a "guys weekend". The buffet and made to order breakfast were good (although the short order cook seemed to be mildly overwhelmed and occasionally confused - but my omelet was good enough). The manager's reception was good as well with a reasonable array of snacks - not enough for a real meal though. There is a pizza place inside the hotel which stays open until midnight (and serves bottled beer). There are also a couple of restaurants/pubs immediately outside of the hotel in the Rivercenter. We did not try these, but at least one of them (Beale Street?) seemed to be attracting some business. One tip of note: Unless you just want the luxury of it all pass up the valet parking and turn the corner and drive into the underground parking lot on your own. You will have to tote luggage up a short flight of stairs to the elevator lobby and then ride up to the hotel lobby, but this is not much of chore. Lastly, this placed seemed to be a favorite spot for wedding parties, so if you plans include a weekend book it in advance for your best room selection.
