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.

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.

Downtown

A nice one night stay. I understand that this hotel is something of a historic landmark, but it could still use a bit of a cosmetic makeover. It was clean. The staff was great, and they anticipated our needs. We were going to the PearlJam concert, and the staff offered us a shuttle ride there, and were very helpful and patient with all of the concert goers. Thank you!

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.

Downtown Cincinnati Hotel

We booked a suite at Garfield Suites for one night. Parking is cheap at the attached city garage ($6 overnight on Friday night), otherwise valet parking is $21. The front desk staff is really nice and upgraded our room to one of the penthouse suites since the two room suites were overbooked. Also, the hotel operates a free shuttle to anywhere in the downtown area, starting at 7AM. The hotel is extremely dated and did not appear to have been thoroughly cleaned. Beds are not comfortable. This was a convenient hotel for one night, but I would not want to stay longer than that.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

When parking in the attached parking garage, it is better to walk back outside and around to the front door. Otherwise you will have to navigate a mase of halls and doors to get to the main lobby from the garage.

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!

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.

70's Horror flick setting

For almost 200 bucks on a freggin Tuesday night... The room was huge, yes. Creepy everything. The furniture was from a horror flick, the kitchen was brand new in the 70's and the whole place smelled like a 1950's closet. We didn't even bathe we wanted out so quick. If this were half price it would be 3 star... it's insane what they charge for how nasty this place is. It's two blocks from the ghetto too!
