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.

Good value

Every room in this place is a small apartment - much bigger than the typical suite hotel. It's a fulls size kitchen, too. It's an excellent location close to all the "action." The rooms seem to be a little dated looking as if they were done in the 80s, but they have been maintained well. My only complaint was the bedding. There was only a thin bedspread and sheet. There was a light blanket, very tattered, in the closet which I used, but it wasn't enough for the Cincinnati winter. This is one area that definitely needs updating. However, the heat was excellent and it was nice to be able to spread out into two separate rooms.

Big room

Location is good, take metro bus if you don't drive. There are some restaurants nearby, but not much choice for me as I don't like to eat burgers or fast-food everyday. Wallgreens at 4th St. Is within walking distance. Kenwood Towne Center is a big shopping mall at Kenwood St. And Montgomery Road. (metro #4 goes there, $2.65 takes 45mins) The hotel is in a quiet and relaxing area. Breakfast not included, but you may try the onsite restaurant for lunch and dinner as well. There is a computer screen at the lobby where you can print boarding pass. Room is v. Big with kitchen, which has the basic utensils you need, kettle, salt n pepper, a fridge. Free wifi was working good. Free local calls n toll free cals(800 no.) it has aircond unit at the living area n the bed room, if you turn off one, other too. Bed is comfortable. You may book a airport shuttle bus through the hotel, cost $20 to Cincinnati A/port, less than half hour to reach(15miles) Didn't realized there is a courtesy shuttle to downtown area until the day I checked out. Check in n out was smooth. Staff were courteous n knowledgeable about what I enquired. Will recommend if you want to stay in Cincinnati, good for family.

Good value and location

This hotel was conveniently located near the convention center and many restaurants and other attractions were within walking distance. The room was not fancy, but had the basic amenities and was comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again if I were traveling to Cincinnati for a conference or other work in this area.

Huge Room!

Stayed 3 nights for work. Restaurant was good, [...] at the front desk was great! The rooms were larger than most apartments I've seen, and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, glasses, utensils, etc. Great place for an extended stay in Cincy!

Good location, nice large suites.

Close to great downtown restaurants, Arnoff Theater, and quick drive to the Zoo. We stayed in a two bedroom suite that had a large kitchen and living room. Very nice. The 16th floor exercise area that overlooks downtown was super. I will definitely return on my next trip. The only minor inconvenience was the renovations that were taking place in the club area.

Fit our needs to a tee

We visited family while we were there. Our first room had insufficent airconditioning, but they moved us to a balcony room with two airconditioners and brought two fans up for us. The second room was more that cool enough. The apartment layout one bedroom, living room, kitchen and bath made the stay extra nice. There was TV in the living room and the bedroom with full basic cable. The hotel is non-smoking so I suggest if you are a smoker to ask for a balcony room. Darren and Ron were particularly accomadating. A newpaper delivered to the door would have been nice. The kitchen had sufficent tools to prepare most meals that you may want to prepare, including a dishwasher. There is a tunnel leading to the parking garage so that there is no need to go outside to get to your car. We had dinner at the Martin Cafe and the food was very good. Serving large enough to have a second meal. The apartment more that met our needs.
