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

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.

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.

Hotel old and unremarkable; literally a shooting happened outside

The hotel is fine, but sort of old and dingy and smells like mild. Décor needs to be updated. Decent location downtown though, and a decent value for a large room. That said, there was a shooting (yes, someone was shot and killed) outside the hotel while I was there. I'll never stay here again.

A Quick Trip

I was pleasantly surprised by the Garfield Suites Hotel. I only was there for 1 night, but it was very convenient for my purposes. I have to be back in Cincinnati for a full week in July, and I fully intend to book a room there. The service was good, the restaurant was excellent, and the location was central to all of my meetings. I am looking forward to calling it "home" for a week in July.

Great downtown character

Even though the building is older and the updates were probably last done in the 80's, the overall character of the hotel was great and the location was perfect for mixing business with pleasure.

Better than I anticipated

It really was a very nice place. More than adequately equipped; obviously had been remodeled; not lavish but notable. Would be great for an extended stay with full kitchen, etc. For the price, I don't think this could be beat by many places. I was more than pleasantly surprised.

out of the 70's

This hotel has furniture from the 70's and the picture online misrepresents its décor. I felt very uncomfortable sleeping in the bed for fear of who knows what is in there.

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.
