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

Rooms

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 Service - Hotel Facility Needs Work

We had a bizarre experience at this hotel, but on average more good than bad, even considering... The first room (2 BR, fold out couch in LR) had bugs - we think bed bugs - and we found four of them in two different rooms. The hotel was very concerned and immediately switched us to a different room plus "comp'd" the room. The second room #3BR# smelled of cigarette smoke throughout; again, the hotel staff immediately moved us, back to a 2 BR w/ fold out couch. This room - a different floor - appeared to be better "rehabbed" than the first two, so a little nicer; of course we checked for bugs and found none. Since it was close to midnight by now, we didn't move to a different hotel, but just checked everything thoroughly plus put anything of ours that may have been in contact w/ bugs in room #1 onto the balcony (it was below 10 degrees). The final room was comfortable but not fancy. All bathrooms we saw need a fan in the shower room. I later found some bug bites along my left shoulder later, I assume from room #1. So - ick for the bugs and non-cleaned former smoker's room (people who smoke in hotel rooms are among the lowest of the low, in my opinion); but kudos to the staff and management for handling this the right way.

Nice Ammenities.

The rooms were ok, could stand to be updated. Wouldve been nice to have vending machine on the floor. I did like the full kitchen. Staff was ok when you asked them questions but didnt offer any info. For example, the Parking cost 6$ each time you go in and out. I found out by asking that the hotel charged 10 per day for all day parking come and go as you please. No one offered that info, i just asked bcuz I got tired of paying.

Good deal

Although the kitchen was dated, it was nice to have a complete kitchen to prepare breakfast. Suite was nice, bed adequate. Unit clean, staff was very nice.

Adequate

The room was large with a family room, kitchen and master suite. The toilet did not flush well. The building is most likely 45 years old. The TV reception was pretty poor and the tv's themselves are antiquated. [...]who runs the shuttle was very cool and helpful and a pleasure to be around. the side splash on the vanithy was pulling away from the wall. So, maintenance is inadequate.

A good value

The Garfield is located downtown and convenient for any destination in the downtown area. I was in town for a baseball game and it was a 15 minute walk to Great American ballpark. However, after dark the neighborhood around the hotel is a bit sketchy so exercise caution. The staff was pleasant enough though perhaps not as helpful as at more upscale hotels.

Good price for the large suite

Large condo--size was great for the price. Borderline location on edge of downtown--a bit nervous walking late at night. Walked to the Reds and Bengals games. Hotel was not modern but was fine for our purpose which was mainly sleeping.

Garfield Suites

Very Courteous staff! They upgraded our room to the jacuzzi suite free of charge. The only suggestion I could make is that its a little outdated and could use some remodeling.
