21c Museum Hotel Cincinnati
Ranked #4 of 51 Hotels in Cincinnati
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We have stayed at the Louisville property and prefer that over this one, but genuinely loved the contemporary furnishings and eclectic artwork in the Cincinnati hotel.
If you are looking for a clean, unique place to stay in the ideal location for anything downtown, this is your spot.
The restaurant is fun and the staff at the hotel bar is so great.

Staff - ultra courteous, congenial, and they went out of their way to ensure a wonderful stay.
Decor - stunning
Bed - most comfortable ever
Artwork - we stopped the elevator on every floor to see the delightful, original artwork on display as the doors opened. Different on every floor.
Dance club, across the street, was noisy - but I set the thermostat on "FAN" and the quiet white noise was all it took to block it out.
In the middle of the most eclectic, fun neighborhood in the city... Within walking distance of Paul Brown Stadium (WHODEY!)... Will stay again.

We have been frequent guests of the superb 21C Museum Hotel in Louisville, and when this one opened in Cincinnati we had to give it a try ... a birthday gift to me from my fiance! Our expectations were very high and we are pleased to report that our expectations were exceeded. The friendly staff was super-accommodating and made sure our stay was perfect in every way. The suite we were provided was spectacular ... the bathroom alone is work of art. Comfortable beds. Quiet. The galleries were fun to explore. On thing we liked was that it was not just a knock-off of Louisville, but had its own unique charm (and quirkiness).
We dined at the excellent hotel restaurant (Metropole) and will review that separately.
Another feather in the cap for 21C ... hurry and open Lexington's... but until then we'll be back to Cincinnati 21C.

We had a mini-staycation at the 21c, staying overnight and taking advantage of the spa and Metropole restaurant. What a fun time we had! The room was nice and contemporary. The spa services were excellent. The food and drinks were great. At every turn the staff were friendly and helpful.

What really made our stay here was the infusion of art and whimsy all around the hotel. We had a great time finding and viewing the art, and enjoyed the silly fun of moving the giant yellow penguins.

The 21C is an up-and-coming modern boutique hotel which is high on style but low on know-how. The furnishings are top notch - modern furniture, Rookwood Potter accents, and museum pieces throughout the hotel. The staff is uber-friendly yet in need of hospitality training. For example, after three inquiries we were notified that our mini-fridge had been delivered to the room next door. A prompt response would have been much appreciated. Most disappointing was the noise from two nearby nightclubs - The Righteous Room and Scene. Music pumped until 2am. Upon checking out the next morning we were informed that a noise ordinance was supposed to be in effect after 11pm, yet none of the hotel management seemed to have taken any action to ensure its enforcement. Several members of our group were inconvenienced and vowed never to stay there again. I'd love to see some of the customer service issues rectified as this is a truly unique hotel with much to offer Cincinnati.

As a corporate travel agent with AAA, I was lucky to receive an extensive tour of this new property. The entire hotel is AMAZING! The modern sense of style, beautiful art and unexpected elegance is a breath of fresh air to Downtown Cincinnati. Located directly across from the Arnoff Performaning Arts Center and next door the the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center, this property is within most everything downtown. Lots of close-by eating options, from fine dining to pub food, there is something for everyone. 21c is truly one of the best hotels in Cincinnati!

The new 21c Museum Hotel is unbelievably fun and friendly and the art is both surprising and beautiful. My husband and I stayed there the first weekend that it was open because we enjoyed their hotel in Louisville. They really delight with unexpected art and little quirks to keep you surprised. The room was big and very nicely furnished in a clean, modern style. The bathroom was big and even there were a few hidden surprises. We ate at the Metropole and the food was very good. The bar area was very lively, making the dining area fun, if a bit noisy.

We found the staff, obviously new, to be extremely friendly and very eager to ensure we were happy. The hotel's location allowed us to walk everywhere downtown...we never used our car.

We will surely go back again because we had such a fun time.
