Business Trip

The staff was amazing, knowledgeable and so helpful, nice and polite! They went above and beyond. I stayed on the 15th floor and I have to say it was the noisiest hotel room I have ever stayed in . There are complimentary ear plugs on the night stand. It was hard to sleep with all the noise. There was banging in the room next to me, not sure if they were working on the room or what, but a lot of noises. I did not have a very restful two days while I was there.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

This was a business trip so I did not get to do much while staying here. However there was a Starbucks a short distance, parking was in the street while you ran in to get your coffee. Very nice place.

Good time

The staff was great! I needed to check in very early and the staff made it easy and was very helpful. Room was clean overall, a little dated, but clean. Plenty of towels and needed items. Hot tub and pool area was a little disappointing jets weren't working and water was not hot enough. I love the water so I was looking forward to this... not as pictured. 360 restaurant has great Sunday brunch and our service was nice. Went for Bengals game and it was perfect location. Would stay again.

Bulldoze It

Yeah, The Radisson Hotel Cincinnati Riverfront is waaaayyyy past its prime, if it ever had one.. 1. Checked in past 10pm and had to excuse two intoxicated bar patrons who were chatting up their Radisson employee friends behind the front desk. They were worried more about going out after work than helping people check in. 2. Room had no TV remote 3. Carpet was stained all over and room had dust bunnies in every corner. 4. Breakfast was deplorable...my 9 year old makes a better breakfast. Spend the extra $ and stay at the Residence Inn down the street. Sometimes it doesn't pay to economize.

needs updating

The staff was friendly and the location was great - right off the interstate. The building itself and the rooms are old. We stayed the last weekend in June. The hotel air conditioner could not be set below 68 degrees. The room was humid and uncomfortable for this reason only.

Older hotel

Hotel was not worth the 179/night charge. The older building had a musky/mildewy odor. We literally had to Lysol the whole place and place air fresheners over the AC unit so that the smell was manageable.

Extremely Uncomfortable Bed!

We will not stay at this hotel again. They have Sleep Number Beds and our bed did not work. It was like sleeping on a rock. There was an accident in the room above us and our bathroom flooded and we could not use it. We had two rooms and we used the bathroom in our other room. Thank you.
