Great location; decent hotel

The hotel was fairly empty when I stayed there - it is a big conference center also and there was no conference so it was very quiet and there was plenty of parking and no waiting anywhere. Be advised there is no pool if that is something that is important to you. Beds are comfortable with slightly awkward pillows - either too giant or too flat for my taste. Overall a clean and comfortable stay.

Great location and staff

The Kingsgate Marriott places you at everything this area has to offer. Though be ready to pay a premium. But quality will cost you top dollar!!

Excellent Hotel

It was an excellent hotel, everyone was extremely personable. There are several places that could have been within walking distance if I had more time: the Zoo, German Beergarden. (And if the season was right!)Speaking of weather - parking was underneath the hotel, in a garage, which was helpful in the winter weather. With no where else to park within a reasonable distance, it seemed ridiculous that the additional fee for parking wasn't included. That was the reason for losing the 5th star.

Comfy in Cincy

Location, location, location...I was there for business with CCHMC which was right across the street. They had free internet, the room service was good but expensive. Due to my location I didn't need a car, but if you require a car be aware of the $25/day parking fee. Nice flat screen TV. Overall I enjoyed my stay.

Convenient location for airport or travel in the Cincinnati vacinity. Nicely decorated and maintained. Our only complaint was that parking was expensive.

Nice Clean Room Noisy Icemaker

Got a great deal on a car and this hotel. Price was offset however by the expensive parking, with no other options. The room was extremely clean and comfortable. I was half way down the hall from the icemaker and could hear a loud crashing noise every 10 minutes or so as it produced a new batch. I would HATE to be any closer. Staff was very nice and very professional. Not a place you can take a walk at night. U of Cincinnati is surrounded by a terrible neighborhood. I was alone on business so I didn't care. I didn't eat at the hotel but this survey forces you to rate the dining.
