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

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.

Ugh!

I traveled to Cincinnati for My daughters orientation. The hotel we chose was only a few miles from the University however one of the worst roads to travel especially at night. The hotel room itself smelled like bad body odor. The linens were old and thin. I will not ever stay there again.

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.

An apartment in the city

This was my second stay at Garfield and I will gladly stay there again. The location to restaurants, theaters, and clubs makes it easy to get around without a car. The best part is the suite itself. It's like having an apartment home in the city. I enjoyed the extra space without the extra expense.

For an inexpensive breakfast and lunch, I would recommend Cafe Martin within the hotel. For a great dinner, I recommend Shanghai Mama at 6th and Sycamore.

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.

Great place to stay in Cincinnati

I stayed at the Garfield Suites Hotel when I traveled to Cincinnati for my audition at the College-Conservatory of Music of the University of Cincinnati. There is plenty of space, the room was clean, the restaurant in the hotel was nice and reasonably priced, and the hotel staff people were very friendly and helpful. I would totally recommend the Garfield Suites Hotel.
