“Great Room, Great Service!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

My recent stay at the Westin-Cincinnati was wonderful! The downtown location was great - convenient to many restaurants, the Reds Ballpark, and Macy's. The Heavenly Beds are the greatest. The Concierge was very helpful with points of interest and directions.Westin does not dissapoint!

I have stayeed several times over the last 9 years at the Westin in Cincinnati. Excellent location next to the square. Several great restaurants nearby. Convenient to both Football and Baseball stadiums.
Staff are extremely friendly and recognize you by name. Rooms are spacious and clean.
I would recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Cincinnati

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the square

My experience as a guest, as a visitor, and as someone who arranges accomodations for persons coming to Cincinnati to visit with me for business reasons have convinced me that The Westin Cincinnati ranks at the top for what I would call "service with a smile."

I have stayed in all the other hotels in Cincinnati and many are outstanding, but The Westin is a true standout: best described as a home away from home.

Class will out.

Room Tip: Be polite and ask for a "good room" aware that there are likely no "bad" rooms.

I expect to be traveling to Cincinnati on business quite a lot and so I was hoping to find a 'home from home' at the Westin. But I was a little disappointed...

The hotel is huge and offers a lot of great amenities (specifically Ingredients on the ground floor), but it all feels a little tired. The decor is a bit bland, a bit old and a bit emotionless.

That said, the beds ('Westin Heavenly Beds') are really amazing and I had a fantastic sleep. Similarly, the showers (Westin Heavenly' again...) are great.

There's not currently a real design / boutique hotel in Cincinnati but as and when one arrives, the Westin may need a small refurb to keep up.

The Westin Cincinnati is a bit hard to find when you're visiting it for the first time. It's located in the multi-purpose building on your right hand side when you're passing by Fountain Square on East 5th Street. The lobby is on the first floor which you can reach by escalator or elevator. As in most Westins, the rooms are reasonably spacious and very comfortable. Staff was efficient and friendly.
There's a public garage right under the hotel that you can use to park your car. The gym is open 24/7 and sports the most common workout gear. Towells and head phones are available for free.

The Westin Cincinnati does not offer complimentary breakfast but you can grab a bite at reasonable prices in "Ingredients", which is located on the ground floor of the building. For dinner, there are many dining locations in walking distance.

The hotel is close to everything (directly across Fountain Square Plaza, and Macys). The lobby is on the second floor of the building. Check-in process was smooth, and the staff were friendly and courteous. The room was clean but on the small side. The beds were soft and I slept like a baby. I would stay here again. Restaurants nearby: McCormick and Schmick (very pricey), Rock Bottom Brewery, (great beer, fair prices), Chipotle, Pot Belly, Subway and other restaurants. There's also a self-serve restaurant on the first floor named Ingredient (assembly required). FedEx-kinko is on the first floor of the same building.
