Cincinnatian Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The photos were nice but the rooms and the lobby were just very dated - much more than expected based on the photos. The staff was friendly, location was great and the room was large.

The hotel was in good condition and clean. The staff was friendly and check in and out was easy and smooth. There are a lot of places to eat within walking distance.

Pleasantly surprised this hotel was beautiful, clean, the bed was soooo comfy. Staff was helpful. Wanted to stay longer!

My wife and I stayed here the night of our wedding, and again this most recent time for our 1 year anniversary. Our first stay was in standard room which was spacious and clean. The second time we booked the Deluxe Executive King room, which was very nice and had a large bathroom with a deep soak tub and large shower. The hotel is in walking distance to many eateries and is only about 4 blocks or so from the bars at "the Banks" near Great American Ballpark. The Cricket Lounge had great drinks and a friendly staff and had a live jazz trio playing the night we stayed. My only complaint is that the rooms are not very sound absorbent so both times we heard a lot of street and hallways noise. Other than that, the hotel is a great place to stay!

The room advertised on orbitz looked nothing like the actual room we stayed in! The bathroom and shower/jacuzzi were updated and was the highlight of the room, however the size of the room, the bed and tv were outdated and disappointing in comparison with the images advertised from the Orbitz booking page for this specific room! Quite deceiving if you ask me! I did enjoy my stay anyway, especially the shower and jacuzzi!

We checked into our room and the staff was so nice! I went into my room and it had not been cleaned. I dropped my luggage in the closet and put our drinks in the fridge and told the staff that our room hadn't been cleaned. When I came back that evening the refrigerator was missing. They had taken all of our drinks with it!! The room was beautiful but the matress was broke and the walls were paper thin. I could hear the neighbors using the bathroom and woke up to loud rap music. There was not a coffee maker in the room and my drinks were gone. It was a rough morning.

We loved this hotel! Close to the Reds stadium, friendly staff, beautiful room. We will definitely stay here again!

It was a good one. A real good one. A very, very good one.

Great location, Great staff, and comfortable rooms

Not a pleasant experience for sure, nothing bad as such, but nothing appealing that makes me rate more than average.

Not worth it for the price. Room was not as nice as advertised. Not updated as promised. 35+ mins to wait on car from valet.

This was pit second stay. It seemed much noisier this time and my husband struggled to sleep for the noise on the street and down the halls. It is s beautiful and charming hotel but it feels a little expensive given it needs work. Some floors and the grand staircase are noticeably uneven and wobbly and there is some noise from neighbors. It isn't terrible, it just feels expensive. It is $35 (plus a tip) to park your car or you can figure out where the nearest parking garage is and leave it there. Not happy at all about that.

Everything was excellent. This hotel is a true gem, especially for its price. Can't recommend it enough.

Wonderful hotel in the heart of Cincinnati. My husband treated me to a night there for my birthday and we could not have asked for a better experience. The beds were extremely comfortable and, overall, we had a lovely time with no issues.

Two complaints that prevented a restful nights sleep during the entire stay. Noise from the bar area was excessive late into the night, requiring ear plugs to filter it out. First night, received phone call from staff at 1:45 a.m. asking if we had ordered room service!

Loved the location, beautiful room/view, and friendly staff! Far exceeded our expectations! People say that it's noisy here, but it's the city! It's to be expected! The only thing "outdated" was the wallpaper peeling off the wall in the hallway. The room was amazing with high end finishes and bed was very comfortable! I was worried from reading some past reviews! We enjoyed our stay very much so and will return! :)

The hotel is nice. Beds are comfortable and pillows. I'm not used to not having small amenities in my room such as a coffee pot and small fridge. I didn't get hardly any sleep due to people coming home all hours of the night yelling and hearing people in the room beside and above us. I would have thought the rooms in an old building like this would have been more soundproof.

I arrived at the reception desk at 11:50 pm to find a single guest ahead of me check in. The lone receptionist took ten minutes to complete this transaction before turning his attention to me. Upon completing my check I inquired about room service and the receptionist informed me that the kitchen closed at midnight and offer to take my order from the late night menu. However, I could not do so because the in-room dining menu was missing; I was then instructed to retrieve a menu from the room. By the time I placed the order the kitchen had closed and only the late night menu was available. This menu offered measly cold snacks. Quite disappointing after a day of travel.

My room was ready on time and the staff was pleasant. Great hotel would stay again!!
