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.

  • Smoke-free building
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • All-suite set up with separate bedrooms and kitchen

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.

Nice

The room looked like 1982 took a poo on it but it was clean. It is conveniently located in down town but a little far from the river area and adjacent to the ghetto. Very roomy, full kitchen, sweet little restaurant on the 1st floor.

Love the separate bedrooms

I spent 3 nights here with a friend and this hotel is like an apartment. Comes with a full kitchen, dining room, living room and 2 bedrooms. Each bedroom has it's own tv, but they are not flat screens, but I can handle that. It was nice to have some privacy so my friend and I didn't get on each others nerves. The beds were pretty comfortable, not too soft, but not too hard. Each room had a large walk in closet, though my friends room's closet had the hot water heater in it, which was a bit cheap looking. The kitchen comes with some dishes so if you wanted to cook you could, but who cooks on vacation! Cincinnati is full of great places to eat! I recommend the Rock Bottom Brewery. The food was average but the house brewed beers were delicious. The only complaint, which to me doesn't matter, but some people expect perfection is the suite needs some renovations. There are some places where the paint is peeling or wallpaper torn. The front of the bathroom counter was just a piece of particle board which looked really cheap. The front desk staff was extremely helpful in telling us places to visit and eat and even had coupons for several area places. Overall, the trip to Cincinnati was successful, and while the Garfield Suites may not be the most glamorous, it has that feel of home and allows some privacy over the normal hotel room. I'll definitely stay here again!

Spacious Rooms with Lovely View

We've stayed at this hotel once before. The rooms are a bit dated but they are spacious, clean and comfortable. The balcony with the view of the city is a nice perk. Hotel location is awesome within walking distance of shopping, dining and a terrific coffee house - The Coffee Emporium!

Stay away

Rented a two bedroom downtown. Had 4 people altogether, 2 per room. Spilt a bag of chips on floor, cleaned up as much as I could without a vacuum. Left crums on ground and got charged and additional 100$ . Hair on beds , library next store blocks view , out dated would never stay there again and would not recommend a friend stay there.

very comfortable

this is the second time we've stayed at Garfield Suites. Staff is very friendly; rooms are clean and comfortable - although there is evidence that maintenance is not being attended such as peeling wall paper, surface rust on vanity cabinet, and loose bathroom fixtures. Bed and sofa quite comfortable. Proximity to downtown restaurants, Great American Ballpark, and riverfront is very good.

Great stay

Had great time. Very nice suites for such an affordable price. At the heart of the downtown, and so easy to navigate. My only complaint was the elevators. They have only two elevators for the entire 16 floors! Some times it took 15 minutes to wait, not an exaggeration!! Also I wish they had an internet room in the lobby, so folks can print boarding passes etc...that would have been nice. But other than that it's a really great hotel.

Good Location-Downtown Cincinnati

All hotel staff were very hospitable and responsive to our requests. Upon check-in, we were upgraded to a two-room suite, which was an unexpected pleasure. I would definitely recommend the Garfield for price, location, room cleanliness and overall hospitality. It was fun to discover that it hosted many Choir Games participants as well.

We were informed by a Garfield staff person about the Sunday brunch at the Taft Museum (admission free on Sundays), where we were treated to performances by some Choir Games participants - a very special event.
