Reviewed August 30, 2014

My family and I were in town for a Reds game and were excited to stay in a boutique hotel. 21c fits the bill and more! Friendly, helpful staff. Quirky, unique environment. Clean, beautiful rooms. Hotel was easy to get to and close to night life. We will be staying again!

I had stayed at the 21c before while travelling with my wife. One of the things we like about it is the proximity to the best Cincinnati has to offer, the beauty of the hotel, and the friendliness of the staff. This time, the staff outdid themselves.

A friend was meeting me in Cincinnati as we live in different cities now. We wanted somewhere to crash after a Reds game. I recommended the 21c. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted and my buddy was impressed by the art and decor. I had called the day before to make sure there would be two beds in the room. Upon arrival, I was reassured my request had been taken care of. The staff member then helped us out with pizza recommendation, which turned out to be a good one.

My friend snores. We've been on several trips together, and it's always the same thing. But the beds were so comfortable either he didn't snore or I didn't notice. All the usual little details made our stay comfortable as well; there were extra toiletries in the room in case we needed them.

The next morning, we wanted to explore Cincinnati a bit on foot, but didn't want to lug our bags out to our cars. Here again, the staff were fantastic. They let us leave our bags there AND refrigerated our leftover pizza while we wandered around. The pizza was uneaten when we got back.

Great rooms, great staff...what's not to love?

Dear John,
First of all, thank you for letting us know what a great stay you had. Knowing how our staff came through for you from your room request to a pizza recommendation with leftovers worthy of transporting back to Illinois means a lot to us, particularly since this was a repeat visit. Thank you secondly for sharing your sleep experience; we are happy to hear that we hit that one (quietly) out of the park. We appreciate your loyalty and we look forward to welcoming you back soon!

I travel to Cinci often for work and this hotel is a game-changer - actually makes my stay happy, comfy and enjoyable. It looks fantastic, well designed, hip and tasteful. I love the rooms and little touches like great Malin & Goetz toiletries and great bedding. And it's cheaper than other mediocre hotels in the city. I am always really depressed when it's sold out (which it is increasingly as people realize what a gem it truly is).

This hotel's greatest asset is it's staff, ALL of it ... EVERYONE! They are pleasant, helpful, smiling and truly enjoy working at the 21C in Cincinnati. Everyone in our party of 5, from our three-year-old grandson to us, the grandparents, loved our weekend. In fact said grandson told his parents Sunday morning that he didn't want to leave ... Could this be his new home? Could he stay with the penguins he loved (the staff gave him two little water "tattoo" penguins as well as a penguins magnet pin). He had been there a few months ago and was all excited when told he was going back to the penguin hotel. As for us, room was large and comfortable with a huge and well-lit bathroom. (We opted for a larger room -- #603.) We liked the coffee machine in our room, the free coffee on the lobby, plush and roomy bathrobes, amenities, ice at turndown, wonderful bed/bedding/pillows, and an excellent location. Top that with one of the best restaurants in the city. Bit back to the service -- it matched the best we've had in high-end hotels, restaurants and cruise lines like Seabourn. This place is a winner.

Thank you so much for all the kind words--we are thrilled to have impressed all the members of your family! Your comfort does come first, and we truly do want to make all of our guests feel as if they have come home. Knowing we have hit a home run with you lets us know how well we are hitting that mark, a goal we continue to pursue. Please let your grandson know that all of the penguins are looking forward to his return to Cincinnati, with all of his family in tow!

The 21C isn't just cool. It's a well-run hotel (and art museum!). For a place so unique, hip and fun, we were pleased with the creatively appointed rooms, and the excellent customer service. Thanks 21C!

The uniqueness of this hotel is very much worth every cent. If you want to be in the center of Cincinnati and avoid standard business hotels, this is the place to stay. The only down side is that there is only valet parking at $30 a day ... but once you see this place, it doesn't matter.
