“Rooms are Fantastic!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

The suites in the Residence Inn Downtown are fantastic. The rooms are clean, spacious and well equipped. The room we stayed in was a 2 room suite that had a kitchen. The kitchen had a full size refrigerator, which comes in handy if you're planning on doing any shopping, keeping beverages nice and cold or keeping leftovers. The living room is spacious and has a pull out sofa. The room slept 6 people (2 beds in the bedroom and the pullout). The bathroom was also very spacious, which is nice when you have 6 people sharing a room. The beds were super comfy and the we were very happy!

We actually stayed here during the Color Run 5k downtown and we were in need of extra towels and a good nap! The staff was very helpful and friendly and the rooms were perfect for afternoon naps! There is also a nice restaurant off the lobby with great cocktails. The food looked fabulous, but all we tried was the dessert and it was awesome!

The only potential drawback to this hotel is that it sits a little further east than many things downtown. We still walked most of the time, but I thought it was worth mentioning if you're used to staying closer to fountain square. That's definitely no reason not to stay here though, everything is a short cab ride away!

From pulling up to the Valet everyone in my party from 16 to 65 felt welcomed and attended to. This staff should put on "how to...." Clinics. The front desk service, directions from manager, the morning meal and evening snack staff all made it a place we did not want to leave.

Room Tip: Get the suite, we'll worth it. Even have the staff get your groceries so u can make lunches to...

We stayed here as a group for a family wedding nearby. The staff simply could not have been better, from the valets, to front desk, bar and breakfast room. The location is very good and the suites are as nice as all Residence Inns. The real winner here is the staff!

Oh my gosh!! The best hotel stay ever. My husband and I traveled to Cincinnati from Atlanta to celebrate Thanksgiving with family and I chose the best hotel for our stay. The room was excellent - clean, stylish and up to date. The hot complimentary breakfast was delicious. The staff ready to assist with any need. Our stay was simply excellent! Please note, parking downtown is limited so the hotel offers valet parking at an additional cost.

My experience at the Residence Inn didn't start off too well. I phoned them to let them know I would be arriving later than I thought and was informed that the room I booked, a 2-bedroom suite, wouldn't be available and they could offer me 2 one-bedroom suites. I wasn't too happy about that since there I wanted a suite where the people in the 2 rooms could hang out in the living room together and chat.

However, from the moment we got there the people were so friendly that it made up for the original disappointment I felt. The rooms were large, with a separate living room, the breakfast was great, with waffles and fruit, eggs, etc. But really it was the friendliness of all the staff, from the reception people to the valets to the chambermaids. They really make this hotel special.

My husband and I stayed here just one night, but that stay was enough to ensure our return when we are in Cincinnati. We echo what other reviewers have written about service: every staff member that we encountered - valet/bell, front desk, breakfast crew, housekeeping - was friendly, cheerful, responsive, and efficient. The lobby, bar, and dining areas are beautiful and immaculate, and our 11th floor room was well-appointed, comfortable, quiet, super clean, and offered terrific views of Mt. Adams and surrounding area. The breakfast was plentiful, with reasonably wide range of choices, and tasty. The location was terrific for us: a short (10-15 minute) walk to Fountain Square; an easy walk to dinner in the evening, and then to downtown meeting the next day.
