Kingsgate Marriott Conference Center at the University of Cincinnati

I was there the weekend of 8/16. The hotel is sits on a campus that has a park like setting including a water fall that I enjoyed while sitting on the lounge patio sipping wine. I found this to be the first point of relaxation at this hotel.
They also have a Woodland Spa that includes a wide variety of services including Reflexology. For the gym rats and workout buffs there is a nice gym which includes amenities and showers.
When you've relaxed, treated yourself to a spa service and worked out, treat yourself to the hummus & pita bread. It's listed as an appetizer but definitely a meal. If you are still hungry get the best turkey burger ever with Brie and Avocado.
You'll be sleepy now so go sleep on the best mattress in the hotel industry. They are so good they sell bedding packages to their guests.
And last but definitely not least. Meet the hotel General Manager, Sue. She knows customer service. From getting me a new hair dryer to a driver to recommendations in the city, she's on it.
I have nothing negative to say about this stay except I had to leave.

We stayed here while visiting the University of Cincinnati. Some universities have quaint mascot-themed hotels situated within their student unions. This is not that type of hotel - more like a business person's conference center. That being said, we found this hotel very accommodating, perfect for a short stay. The location is great, if your trip involves the university (not an impressive area otherwise). The staff members were helpful and friendly, especially the ladies staffing the made-to-order omelet service at breakfast. Our room was clean and quiet, and the bedding was fresh and comfortable. We slept well. If you have a car, you pay to park in the indoor garage, which was a slight bit creepy and rundown. I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

I was there for the Macy's Music Festival which was about 4 to 7 miles depending on the cab ride.
This hotel provided a buffet breakfast for 2 each morning and it was one of the best Hotel buffet meal I have had. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly too and took care of all of our request. We traveled with another couple and we were able to get adjoining rooms which made communicating our plans for during our stay easier. The beds were very comfortable and the lobby decor was charming, didn't have a problem sitting there waiting for the group to gather. This Hotel was on the campus of University of Cincinnati away from downtown, but getting a cab was not problem. The front desk will provide you with a map and directions if you want to explore on our own

Room Tip: If you are traveling along or as a couple ask for a CORNER room, they are larger

The hotel is nicely situation for those who are attending anything at the University and 20 minutes from Northern Kentucky Airport. The lobby was large and had great computer use, the Bearcat Lounge was a nice place to grab a snack but the prices were high. They have a nice breakfast buffet that was really nice but a bit on the pricey side. The dinner service was slow and the food was average, nothing to talk about. Housekeeping staff was great and helpful and they kept the rooms very clean. There is a nice hiking and walking trail nearby and the Zoo is close by. It is not very close to any stores if you need something they will take you by shuttle but will not go beyond a mile which seems silly, a taxi to downtown will be $15.00. The strange thing that happened was the fire alarm went off on the 6th floor because of someone cooking popcorn in the microwave, but the staff did not inform any guests of what was going on during the evacuation, it would have been nice to be informed.

Stayed here this past weekend and was pleased. Although I found it a bit unusual that it is in the middle of the University of Cincinnati campus. The hotel was very clean (which is very important to me). I loved that it had all modern amenities including a refrigerator. The reason I give it 4 stars is because you have to pay $10/day for parking. We ordered breakfast in bed and the food was plentiful but a little expensive. The kids breakfast would have been sufficient. Definately would stay here again when in Ohio.

I was here on business. It was very hot outside. It was freezing inside. No pool. The restaurant is insanely expensive. In the restaurant a glass of wine was $10. A few steps away in the Bearcat Lounge the same exact glass of wine is $7. Dinner for ONE with drinks came to $60. No salad just dinner and some crisp bread. Unless you are there for the University of Cincinnati or the Medical Center (which I imagine most people are) there is nothing within walking distance.--unless you include the drug infested street you walk to on your way to Krogers to get something to eat.
