Almost a home run...

I was in town for the Flying Pig Marathon and stayed for one night. The location was great with a short drive to downtown Cincinnati and a long walk to some great restaurants and shops - front desk gave us some great recommendations. Room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Only thing missing was early morning options - coffee in the lobby or a microwave in the room would have made the stay perfect. Very happy overall - I'd stay there again and recommend it to others.

Nice Hotel Stay

Very nice staff were polite and helpful, it was a nice visit. Only one problem we had I call front desk to make sure a taxi was on hand at a certain time so we can make our concert. When we arrived at the main entrance our cab was not present so we arrived at our concert late, I should have gotten the the associate name but I was't worried about it since we are on vacation but i wish I did but otherwise than that and our room phone didn't work, but I wasn't aware of the phone option.... I enjoyed it.

Classy, but cold

We stayed at the Marriott because it was just a few blocks from the concert we were in town to see. The parking wasn't bad, but it was really annoying to take two elevators to get from our room to our car. The lobby was very nice and the room was super comfy, which, ultimately, is the main idea of a hotel.My problem is a combination of trouble from [...] and the hotel. When I booked the room, [...] gave me the option to select a smoking room. When I arrived, nothing was said about no smoking. Even in the room, there was no sign saying, "no smoking." Sure, there were no ashtrays, but there were NO SIGNS saying, "NO SMOKING." I later found out about the Marriott smoking ban by being billed $250.Of course, I attempted to contact the hotel for a refund because no one explicitly notified me that the room I booked was a non-smoking room. I was told that the little paper card that they slip the room keys into said there was no smoking and that I should have called the front desk to ask. Sorry, but that's a pretty weak argument.If you're a non-smoker, you'll love the place. If you're a smoker, go there for the location and comfortable bed, not because you're welcome.
