I don't know where the negative-nancies stayed, but it could not have been here.
The staff was friendly, courteous, attentive, and present. They offered suggestions on how to get around, and let us know what to avoid.
Our room was had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was clean. The appliances worked and we had an ample supply of clean towels. The bed was comfortable. We had a nice river view. However, the view of Cincinnati at night was marred/obstructed by the I-71/I-75 bridge.
There was a train bridge nearby; didn't hear any trains. There were a TON of kids; didn't hear them. We saw them the next morning at breakfast. I was surprised we did not hear running in the halls, doors slamming, etc. Didn't know there were that many at this hotel.
Breakfast was loaded with carbs, but, it's vacation!! Breakfast was tasty. The staff did its best to keep up with the crush of customers on this morning.
The hotel looked like it was out-of-the-way, but it wasn't hard to navigate to Cincinnati or to Newport from the Hampton.
Somebody commented on the liquor establishments. I, too, was amazed at the sheer amount of liquor stores. There were three just outside the front door, and a much larger fourth within an easy walk. That said, what wasn't present was the loiterers associated with such a place. People were in and out, no lingering. No one was panhandling.
Anyway, I hope this review helps you make a good decision. We are glad we chose this place to stay.
