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.

Highlights
  • 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. 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.

2nd time there and will be back

Great space for the money. These used to be apartments or condo's at one time so you get a small apartment. They were over-booked for the one bedroom I reserved so they upgraded me to the two bedroom. It was like you never left home. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Garfield Suites

I had a great stay--stayed 10 days on family business. Not a luxurious hotel, but homey, comfortable. Suite was clean, shower was great and I had plenty of hot water. Read one review which said only had enough water for 1 person, not true for me. Great location. People friendly and everyone tried to be helpful. My first impression was disappointment because I thought the furniture was older than regular hotels, but after a day I changed my mind totally and felt right at home. Depends what you're looking for. I was quite comfortable and will go back again. Didn't like the balcony, had no use for it.

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.

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 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.

two nights at Garfield Suites

Staff was friendly, sky view gym on 16th floor was a plus. Rooms are like an apartment with closet space, full kitchen, and living and dining areas. Good value for a downtown hotel with restaurant on premises.

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.

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!

Good value for location, nothing extraordinary

Probably best value for hotel in downtown Cincinnati. Between hotel shuttle and downtown shuttle, it's easy to get to locations within the downtown area or across the river. The rooms weren't anything special. A little out-dated, but clean. If you're looking to getting around Cincinnati/Covington/Newport without having to drive, this is a great location.
