I spent a week here on a business trip and was impressed most of all by the friendly and courteous staff. From the front desk, to housekeeping, to the valets, every employee I encountered was pleasant and helpful.
My 12th-floor room was clean and comfortable and had a great view of the Ohio River, Cincinatti skyline and the handsome John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge that links Covington to the Queen City.
The location is very convenient. Our job location was across the river, a five-minute drive in morning and afternoon rush hour traffic. "Rush hour traffic" is something of a misnomer. My colleagues and I were befuddled by the lack of vehicles at peak drive times. This was summer and the Reds were out of town so your results may vary. I can imagine the area can gum up quite nicely when events occur at any of the arenas on the river.
The hotel couldn't be any closer to the Northern Kentucky Convention Center. The Roebling Point Entertainment District is a short stroll away with a good selection of bars/restaurants. One can walk a path above the river behind the Marriott. I never went downriver but the way up is pleasant and leads to the pedestrian walkway on the Roebling Bridge. Continue past the bridge to find the gorgeous Licking Riverside Historic District, one corner of which is formed by the meeting of the Ohio and Licking Rivers.
I issue one warning to the sonically sensitve. All the rooms face into the 14-story high atrium. When there's a crowd in the bar or other lobby areas you will hear it. Acrophobes might also take heed. For the rest of us, the the balconies and glass-walled elevators give a nice look at the soaring atrium and its "World's Largest Indoor Gazebo."
