“Repeat Guest: All Expectations Met”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This has to be at least the 4th time I have stayed here on business with the Univ Of Cincinnati Children's hospital. this year's room faced the green park and fountain, very calming and relaxing when sitting in the comfy chair. Only one thing I can think of to improve the accommodations: a foot stool or hassock for the chair, to really be able to stretch out and relax after a hard days work. Other than that: great restaurant on site to eliminate having to run around, thanks Darren, a server who I have met over the years. He is kind and efficient, always nice to visit with a friendly face when away from home. The Bear Claw lounge is a wonderful place to relax after work and when the sun is out, the terrace facing the fountain and green space is great. The front desk was efficient and kind, the room-very comfortable and the location, excellent. Although very busy at the end of the week, the hotel never felt crowded. I look forward to repeating this stay when business brings me back.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the green side and fountain are great!

I've stayed at the Marriott Kingsgate Conference Hotel a few times. Always a pleasant experience. This time however I was unable to get a wake-up call. I tried using the wake-up call button on my phone, which rang (not an automated service) but no one answered. Same thing happened when I called the front desk. One small issue in an otherwise nice experience.

Stayed here while visiting Cincinnati Children's. Perfectly located. Hotel is very nice, better than the average Marriott. Very nice room. Staff was extremely helpful in recommending running routes, providing dining suggestions, etc. I had a car - without one, options for things to do nearby would be limited.

The evening and morning front desk staffs were friendly and efficient. Nice rooms in a safe neighborhood. Workout room was functional with plenty of cardio machines (treadmills, elipticals, etc.) + free weights.
I do not believe that they have a concierge floor for Marriott Rewards members, but did provide breakfast instead at the restaurant. The buffet had a great selection of fresh fruit and omelet station and hot/cold choices. Parking in the on-site garage is $10.

We stayed two nights while visiting the University of Cincinnati. This is a well run property from the front desk, housekeeping, and courtesy van driver everyone was professional and friendly. Check in, wake up calls, and our request for a taxi to the airport were all handled courteously and with no problems what so ever.

The renovated room was clean and furnished like a typical Marriott property (i.e. flat screen TV, coffee maker, iron and ironing board, comfortable beds, and good quality toiletries). The hotel is located near a hospital and we did hear some ambulance sirens during our stay, but turning up the fan for the heating system acted a little like a “white noise machine”.

The hotel is conveniently located to the University Campus, but we recommend taking advantage of the courtesy shuttle to get to the further parts of the campus. You can even arrange for a pick up time for your return trip.

Tip: If you like Indian food Ambar in the gaslight district (Ludlow Avenue) served great food and is very popular with Cincinnati locals.

This Marriott is located within walking distance of University Hospital. I liked the hotel overall and I liked my room, but I did not like the price. A parking pass for the garage costs an additional $10 and the expensive price of the room does not even include morning coffee. The two restaurants inside the hotel have decent food and are just as expensive, and there are not many other choices for food nearby. The hotel's location is clean and safe but a short walk down the street will take you to unsafe areas.

I stayed at this hotel while visiting the nearby Government offices. It is away from the city centre and on a busy intersection BUT it is quiet, easy to find, has plenty of parking and is walking distance from the Uni. We went to several good pubs and restaurants within a short walk. The bar was great for meeting up with colleagues, breakfast was good and staff were friendly and helpful. The room was large, well appointed and clean. I would stay again.
