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.

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.

Suite accomodations-the way to go.

My stay here was a good one. This is an establishment that has character and its age is quite evident ( but that can easily be overlooked). I truly appreciated the free shuttle service offered around the surrounding area. Such a great convenience-especially when balancing a conference and sight seeing. What really blew me away was the price for the large amount of space (SO roomy). Lastly the staff was awesome! They were all so warm and helpful.

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, 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.

Nicholson's Irish restaurant is less than two blocks away and the food, drink, and atmosphere is not to be missed.

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.

great location, great price

This place is a great location for downtown. There are great places to dine within a few minutes walking distance. It is also close to the Bengals Stadium. The come and go parking is also a good price, $10 per night. The secured free wifi is also a plus. Cook ware is also supplied in the suite kitchen. The only problem I had was the walk through the "tunnels" to the parking garage. Also the hotel restaurant and bar had great food and excellent house cocktails.

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.
