“Nice Marriott”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

We went to Cincinnati to visit family and this was the closest hotel available to our relatives' house. We used our Marriott points to stay here for 2 nights. It's a nice hotel, clean, fairly modern, quiet, we got a room with a king size bed that was very spacious and fit a rollaway bed for our daughter with enough space to spare. Bathroom was OK, clean, good shower and amenities. The only down side - no safe in the room, I think this is the first Marriott I've stayed without an in room safe, we had to go down to the front desk to use the safe there. Parking was $10 a day. Breakfast was not included, $15 per person for a good all you can eat buffet.

Came for a 3 day / 2 night conference that was held at the hotel. The desk staff was very professional and helpful. Quick to assist patrons and very kind to extend check-out time on my last day. The rooms are well-sized and comfortable. Wireless was easily available. The conference hall was nice and A/V assistance was readily available for the occasional technological hiccup. The food was good during the conference with a nice variety.
The best part is that it is walking distance from the university. I would come for another conference.

Beautiful Lobby and entrance to Hotel. Rooms were nice and quiet. Parking is extra but you are in the city. We especially enjoyed it on Saturday evening coming in late around 9pm and stopping in at the lounge. The bartender was very nice and even let us order dinner at the bar (he could make a mean Cosmo). We wound up only ordering light appetizers but there was a full menu to choose from if you wished. We had trouble with the water draining in the tub after showering, we brought it to the front desk staffs attention when we checked out and they graciously waved our $10 parking fee. Overall a pleasant night!

For starters, what an amazing waitstaff!! There is a fine line between amazing and well, so-so service when you are away on business. Kingsgate, takes your business trip and makes it a VACATION. I was there for 10 days (I love my job but, 10 days is a LONG time for a conference) of meetings, training and learning. To say the least, I was expecting to be home sick and miserable.... I was wrong. The staff at Kingsgate, made me feel like I was home. I cannot say enough great things things about the facility! The University pool and fitness center are a short trip on the hotel provided shuttle.... WORTH THE TRIP!!!

Overall it was a fine room. As it was part of a conference and someone else was paying for it I can't complain about the price. My only complaint was the bed. It had a down matress pad and this left one side of me sweating while the other side would get cool. It made sleeping difficult and a little uncomfortable.

The employees at this hotel are wonderful! After driving through the night & not sleeping, they let us check in 4 hours early - we could sleep! The rooms are clean, service is wonderful & it is conveniently located in Cincinnati. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel!
Oh - the bed is extremely comfortable!

Stayed here for one PM while visiting the medical center. In general, wouldn't necessarily pick this spot if not needing to stay around the hospitals (ie, there is nothing around) but for the purpose, it was perfect. Clean, somewhat updated (nice furniture, decent decor--nothing special but nothing ugly, flatscreens and ihome radio/docks for your ipod)

If not getting reimbursed, I might say the going rate seemed a bit overpriced for what you get ($189/pm) Parking is $9 per day, park yourself in on premesis underground garage. Restaurant has basic fare, again a bit overpriced but not awful and a nice buffet.

If you're going to the hospitals, it can be a hike but there is a free shuttle.

Staff was very helpful and courteous. Would stay here again.
