We stayed in a 2 bedroom suites which gave plenty of room for the 5 of us to move around. We were greeted with such care and concern and the attentive service was consistent throughout the weekend. The price is great for what you get - full kitchen, 2 tvs. The furnishings are a little dated, but clean and in working condition. And the parking is the most affordable in the city. Great location near the Duke Energy center and fun downtown area.

My husband and I and two of our closest friends just spend the weekend of April 13 - 15 at the Garfield Suites. It was very affordable and loved that we could walk all through downtown and we walked to the ballpark and freedom center.
The hotel is affordable but it is a little outdated in the rooms. But for a weekend stay it was nice.
The only issue I had was that the stove was not put together I did tell someone put nothing happened and my friend ended up connecting the cord for the electric eye on the stove.
We also couldn't order a movie in, they do not have that capability. But thats ok.
Yes we all agreed we will stay there again.
satisfied.

The staff their is very caring and do everything they possibly can to accommodate you. This hotel is very close to great attractions such as the Cincinnati Zoo, Newport Aquarium, and the infamous Hofbrahaus. You are guaranteed to enjoy your stay at this hotel and the convenient location to everything you could possibly want to do. Will definitely be staying here again soon!

We enjoyed our stay at the Garfield Suites. The restaurant served a delicious meal. Both were very reasonably priced. There is all types of entertainment within walking distance, and we felt quite safe walking in that area of town.

I just got back from a week-long stay at The Garfield Suites and I'm here to report that it was really great. I found the location exceedingly convenient to night life and cultural/sports venues, and the staff was friendly, accommodating and clearly very well-trained. The restaurant/bar that's on the first floor (Le Martin I think was the name) was reasonably priced and a very convenient option for evenings when I decided to dine in without having to cook. The rooms at The Garfield are quite spacious, and feature roomy balconies. The room I was in even had a full kitchen and living room/sitting area. While there I also picked up some event/catering info (at the request of a local family member), and found the events planning staff to also be very personable and helpful. Parking was also very reasonable at $8/day with in/out privileges or $6/day without in/out.

I really enjoyed my stay at The Garfield Suites. If you're looking for a convenient, clean and friendly hotel (whether for a stay or for a meeting/event) in downtown Cincinnati, look no further.

Each day of my four-night stay revealed another problem with my suite. On day one, the peeling wallpaper and worn furniture were immediately apparent. Day two when I looked under the bed for change I dropped, it was clear no one had vacuumed underneath in months. Day three's surprise- pizza crust under the sofa cushions. Day four - broken burners on the stove and an under sink cabinet that had no bottom.

Overall I felt I was in a 1970s apartment that had been neglected for decades.

But the location was convenient for the trade show I was in town for at the Duke Energy convention center.

Overall, if you're not squeamish about dingy hotels, you'll be okay with this, but if you're used to tidy chains, you'll be unpleasantly surprised.
