“Great stay in a struggling city”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We stayed here four nights with a large group. Everything was done to accommodate our group and make us feel welcome. We were greeted with a smile each time we entered the lobby or encountered any of the staff in the hall. This goes a long way in making a stay a nice one.

Our room faced the street and was just 2 rooms down from the elevator. Neither of us had an issue with noise--trains, street or elevator noises were nonexistent. The room was very large with lots of room to put bags, etc. We had a sofa, large desk, expandable coffee table, adaquate storage and a refrigerator. The king-sized bed was very comfortable with many pillows--both firm and soft. Room lighting was good and the climate control was easy to adjust and quickly cooled the room down. The only negative comment we have is that the bathroom was small and was a one-person bathroom. The vanity was not split from the shower/commode so it was not conducive to sharing. We found the elevator service quick with no long waits.

We did not eat in the hotel other than a banquet breakfast for our group which was just so-so. While the food was not to our liking, the buffet was serviced very promptly. Our evening banquet was Sunday evening and the food was excellent. I found it somewhat strange that the hotel's dining room was closed that night. Could have been due to the holiday?

We walked to Ryan's Tavern a few blocks away and drove (although we could have walked) to Riverbank Cafe just over the bridge. Both were very good (not outstanding) meals.

As mentioned, the downtown area is struggling. There was no time that we felt unsafe, however. We toured the Butler County Courthouse, the Soldiers, Sailors and Pioneers Monument and Heritage Hall/Robert McCloskey Museum--all were worthy of a visit. Also, the Butler County Historical Society Museum was a lovely visit. We particularly enjoyed viewing the many sculptures scattered around the downtown area. They're all very engaging. We hope this city is able to survive and would definitely stay in this Courtyard again.

The room was very nice and the mattress and pillows were perfect. We had a very good night's sleep which is difficult in a hotel. Our re,ote batteries were dead, but the problem was immediately taken care of. It appears to be a new hotel or newly renovated.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us on TripAdvisor. We are a newly renovated hotel so I’m glad you noticed and enjoyed our modern, clean look. It’s always nice to hear that our guests had a good night’s sleep because we want to provide the most comfortable and most quiet stay possible for our weary travelers. We hope you will come and stay with us again soon.

The hotel was very clean and showed recent updates. The staff was welcoming and friendly and willing to help. This is the first hotel that had wonderful pillows, 5 per king sized bed, the towels were soft and very clean. If in the area again we would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevator and you'll have a great peaceful night's sleep.

Not an exceptional hotel, but nicely located in downtown Hamilton for business travelers in NW Cincinnati. There's very little nearby in terms of restaurants (Ryan's Tavern is three blocks away), but the hotel is comfortable, the staff is knowledgeable, and the price is reasonable. There's construction (July 2012), so your GPS may not point you in the exact direction, but once you're downtown it's easy enough to find. Breakfast options are very good - the yogurt parfait was fresh and made on the spot.

Be careful if you book here--within a few blocks of the hotel are multiple gun stores, pawn shops, signs for bail bonds, dollar stores, etc. The hotel seemed nice enough and the staff was friendly, but downtown Hamilton is very downtrodden. We did not feel safe in the area. We decided to stay elsewhere.

We stayed there for a swim competition that was held at Miami University. The hotel was sold out and there was a day when our room didn't get cleaned until 4pm. We were supposed to get free breakfast, but the hotel had no record of such arrangement.

Hotel was located in the middle of some empty land. Our room faced a small river. The hotel has 2 washers and dryers in the first floor. Laundry supplies were free and available in the laundry room. A small indoor pool seemed clean.

Room Tip: Ask for water view. Otherwise you will be facing a field of dirt.
