Historic hotel combines old-world charm with modern-day amenities

This grand hotel in the heart of Cincinnati is on the National Register of Historic Places and provides guests with larger-than-average rooms and unique architectural touches, like a marble and walnut grand staircase in the lobby. Traditional afternoon tea is served daily, yet modern-age amenities, such as Wi-Fi in the lobby, ensure 21st century service.

Highlights
  • National Register of Historic Places property
  • Smoke-free throughout
  • Free Wi-Fi
Rooms

The 146 guest rooms in this non-smoking downtown hotel reflect its rich heritage. Many have fireplaces, balconies, and European-style bathrooms and tubs. Rooms are larger than average, ranging from about 300 square-feet up to 1,300 square-feet for a suite.

Features

Guests at the Cincinnatian Hotel might feel more like they are in old-world Europe than in a Midwestern city. The lobby exudes classic grandeur with a marble and walnut grand staircase, but free Wi-Fi available in the lobby, guest rooms, and meeting spaces keeps guests connected.

 

A 1987 renovation polished up the Cincinnatian and created some extra large guest rooms, but the old-world charm is intact. Rooms range in size from about 300 square-feet to 1,300-square-foot suites. In-room amenities include European-style bathrooms with soaking tubs, and all rooms include DVD player. Guests can rent movies from the front desk.

 

Well-known Palace Restaurant on site serves a menu combining American, Asian, and European influences. The European experience is further enhanced with afternoon tea served daily.

Great time with the family in the junior suite!

Amazing location with an attentive staff and beautiful new junior suites. Splurge if you can, it's worth it.

Excellent hotel in downtown Cincinnati

Beautiful historic hotel in downtown Cincinnati within walking distance of most everything - close to Fountain Square. Very clean hotel & rooms and very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent restaurant. Rooms are a little small - but that reflects the older nature of the hotel. Nice free internet. A hair expensive, but that's likely due to the downtown location, more than being 'overpriced'.

Great room

Spent our wedding night at this hotel. Returned this trip for our 25th anniversary. Room was great. Very romantic. We were able to walk to all our destinations. Only complaint is our check in was at 3, we arrived around 6 and were told our room wasn't ready yet. Thankfully it wasn't a long wait.

Good for downtown location

My husband and I wanted to stay downtown cincinatti where we could walk to the taft theater where we were going to a concert. First time to the city didn't know what places were nice. The room was very clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful. Only negative was the room had no outdoor veiw windows. But other than that, I would come again!

Disapointed

Room is old and dark for my taste. Had to work in the room and there was no available electricity plug available close to the desk. Had to disconnect one the lights to get one for computer and the room bacame more darker. Staff is very friendly.

Great Location For Us

The hotel was nice and so was the staff but I rank it just average. The rooms need to be updated. I did like the double sinks that were split up into 2 separate rooms but housekeeping needs to address the pocket door in the bathroom. The shutter pocket door from inside of the actual bathroom had not been dusted probably in a very long time and that was an eye sore and did not make me feel I was in a clean room. The location was just perfect, close to almost everything on our list. We look forward to coming back to the city.
