“Wonderful historic hotel.”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

The Hilton Hotel in Cincinnati is exceptional because it is located in a historically designated building. Among other things this means that the rooms are wonderfully spacious with high ceilings. The decor throughout the hotel is also a treat for the eye. We did not get to eat at the restaurant but next time we stay we hope to be able to do this because it, too, is simply breath-taking. Kudos to Hilton for caring about maintaining important architectural structures like this one. The cost was a bit more than other hotels in the area but well worth it, and you are in walking distance of lots of interesting restaurants, too. The linens were lovely, the bed comfortable, the amenities appropriate for a place like this. It was a pleasure to stay here.

A lovely art deco hotel in the heart of Cincinnati. Most guest rooms are spacious and the Palm Court Restaurant is lovely with excellent food. Staff is consistently excellent and the executive lounge, while small, is nice. Lobby and common rooms are worth a tour in and of themselves. I almost always stay there in visiting Cincinnati

Our stay at the Netherlands plaza really exceeded our expectation for a vintage hotel. We had a remodeled room with a great river view. Prior to our arrival, the hotel did contact us if we really wanted a whirlpool suite or a 2 room suite, we didn't know why, but when we arrived and checked out the whirlpool we opted of the 2 room suite. The whirlpool was small and wouldn't be comfortable for people over 5' tall. Bit once we got settled in, we had a quick snack in the executive lounge which was nicely furnished with a nice selection of desert and beverages. Then off to the lobby bar for a drink and possibly dinner. We were impressed with the menu offering in the bar lounge. The chicken wings, burger and even the garlic fries were beautifully plated and delicious. The staff were excellent and even the bar manager stopped by to see how we liked our meals. We commented on the condition of the artwork and the condition of the hotel. She did suggest that we should view the halls of mirror, she even helped us to get a security guard to open up the hall for us to have a quick tour. The hall was breath-taking and we can only envision how it could have been back in the days.
Our stay at the hilton was good, the only complaint I have is the size of the bathtub/shower. When they renovated the room, I wished they should have installed curve shower rod. I don't recall being in such a tight space for a shower in decades.

Hilton Netherlands is a beautiful hotel, especially the restaurant and bar area. Hotel staff, from the front desk to the valet service, are friendly and helpful. This is our hotel of choice when visiting Cincinnati!

We booked the Hilton Netherlands Plaza for one night on our trip to Georgia and what a wonderful decision. The Hotel staff were friendly, rooms were spacious, bed comfortable and breakfast delicious. But the best part of the stay at the hotel was the décor of the hotel, it was spectacular. This décor is worth a stay just to experience the granular of the age that the hotel was built. I would recommend this Hilton to anyone travelling to Cincinnati or just travelling through. For travelers it is just a few minutes off the highway.

Room Tip: I am sure that all rooms in this Hotel are equally perfect
