Spacious apartment-style suites in downtown Cincinnati
At Garfield Suites Hotel, in the heart of downtown Cincinnati, all accommodations are suites -- multiroom apartments that are more like a condominium than a traditional hotel room. Guests can expect many of the usual hotel amenities, including free Wi-Fi and a complimentary shuttle to nearby destinations, but also reap the benefits of a stay in a unique smoke-free condominium-like property.
Highlights
  • Smoke-free building
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • All-suite set up with separate bedrooms and kitchen
  • Complimentary shuttle to area destinations
Rooms
Condominium-style suites include one-bedroom and two-bedroom arrangements, with separate living room and fully equipped kitchen. Duplex penthouse, with two bedrooms and balcony, is also available. Standard guestroom amenities include free Wi-Fi, free movies on cable, and DVD player.
Features
Garfield Suites Hotel stands out from the Cincinnati hotel crowd with its condominium-style hotel rooms, which are more like a condominium apartment than a traditional hotel room. Suites have one or two bedrooms, separate living room, and fully equipped kitchen. Some suites, priced slightly higher, have balconies.

Guests can expect many of the same amenities they would find in a traditional hotel while enjoying the comfort and convenience of an apartment. Amenities include free Wi-Fi in suites and throughout the hotel, free cocktails during happy hour one night a week, and a free courtesy van taking guests to and from downtown Cincinnati between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. daily.

Two-story fitness center, in a glassed-in atrium, is well equipped with cardio machines (ellipticals, treadmills, rowing machines, stationery bicycles), free weights, and weight machines. No charge for guests, and free bottled water. Guests who prefer to swim for fitness can ask for a pass at the front desk to the pool at the nearby YMCA, located one block away.

Great value for prime location

Our one-bedroom suite had a well-equipped kitchen and a comfortable bed. It felt quite roomy for two people. The staff was very helpful with local information and requests, and the location in downtown Cincinnati can't be beat. I went to the international tennis tournament taking place north of the city (the access to the interstate was easy), while my husband visited an outstanding art museum and other central-city attractions. We definitely will stay here again.

Nice stay in Cincinnati!

Yes, the rooms do need some updating, however, they were very clean and extremely spacious. The downtown location is excellent and in walking distance to Great American Ballpark, the Horseshoe Casino and many restaurants, bars and shops. The staff was friendly and helpful. An excellent value.

We really enjoyed the Rock Bottom Cafe, a short walk away. It's located in a pretty park with a fountain and live music in the evenings.

Great Downtown location

The hotel was near everything downtown. It was very weird to get from the parking garage to the hotel. A series of steps & doors in an interior corridor. The rooms were extremely dated, yet clean. The staff was very nice. A cheap stay, great for location, as long as your not spending too much time in the room.

Hotel old and unremarkable; literally a shooting happened outside

The hotel is fine, but sort of old and dingy and smells like mild. Décor needs to be updated. Decent location downtown though, and a decent value for a large room. That said, there was a shooting (yes, someone was shot and killed) outside the hotel while I was there. I'll never stay here again.

Great home base for visiting childhood town

Our room at Garfield Suites was roomy and airy (the windows actually opened!), and we were treated very well by all the staff members. The restaurant downstairs has good food and drinks that are reasonably priced. We had lots of people and places to visit during our vacation, and the location was just right. And we were minutes away from the zoo, the art museum, a downtown casino, and a fun afternoon at the races.
