This hotel may not be in downtown Cincy, but it has the "Best" view of it. It's absolutely breathtaking when you see it at night for the first time. The entire city reflects off the Ohio river in a fashion that only movies portray. I've seen some people complain about the location of the hotel in comparison on downtown Cincinnati and though they may be right, they fail to mention that a tram runs right in front of the hotel every 15 minutes. The tram will set you back 1 dollar per rider so that shouldn't be to heavy of a burden. The tram has multiple stops in Covington, Downtown Cincinnati, and Newport. While you stay in the hotel , i strongly suggest the Keystone Bar and Grill about 3 blocks away (Also near a Tram stop). They have the most amazing cheeseburgers.
Any how back to the Hotel, The hotel is clean and the staff is very helpful (they showed us the routes of the tram). The elevators are glass so you can watch the plaza fall away as the elevator whisks you to your floor. The rooms were alright. I only had a couple of quips: No mini fridge for the left overs, no microwave, no safe, and the outside of our window was dirty thus ruining any pictures taken through it. These are minor issues but thought you should be aware of them. We had a room facing the river and I strongly recommend it. Let my photos do the talking.
To end this review, the hotel is great. It's near everything (Newport Aquarium) thanks to the 1$ tram outside. The views are amazing and the staff is very informative. parking is ample and it is 10$ a day if you self park (heads up). This hotel was all we could ask for and more. Thanks for reading and I hope the pictures do some justice.
