I got this hotel after I booked through Priceline. I got a great rate ($75 for Memorial Day weekend). This hotel is a typical Marriott in terms of quality----nice rooms, nice beds/linens, friendly, competent staff, nice workout facility. The hotel is spotless and well-maintained. It is located on the University of Cincinnati medical campus, only a 5-minute drive to the lovely UC main campus (which has been beautifully rehabbed/redesigned in recent years; I am a 1996 graduate of the school and I didn't even recognize the place, it had changed so much in 12 years).
The hotel is a good bargain for weekend stays and much nicer than many other comparable hotels in Cincy, since Cincy as a city and its many hotels are all getting very rundown and dingy. The main drawback of this hotel is the parking garage, which costs $15 a night (!) for parking. And there are really no other options for parking unless you want to park 2 blocks away on the street in a very bad neighborhood. (The dangerous Avondale neighborhood that borders UC is very, very bad). So even if you do get a good rate for the hotel, the cost of parking can cancel out any savings. But this was not a big deal in my case, since I am a Marriott Rewards member and a frequent guest at Marriott properties, which are almost always head and shoulders above their competition.
