This biggest issue about my stay was that the next morning, early in the morning. I expressed the issues with my stay to the manager. He was willing to discount my stay bc I was basically pushed out to check out early due to hotel maintenance schedule. BUT the manager couldn't reimburse me bc I purchased my stay through 3rd party (Orbitz) NOR did he offer to give me a complimentary stay through Radisson. It was so annoying to be so inconvenienced and they don't understand that people pay their hard working money to enjoy a stay at a nice hotel and shouldn't have to cut their stay short bc the hotel had a maintenance issue and mixup with putting me in the wrong room. So BEWARE

Property and interior of rooms need to be updated. Carpets and beds look like they have been there since day one

Poorly maintained, dated room, bathroom tub super slow to drain, toilet seat falling off, staff not friendly.

Steer clear of this hotel. The hotel looks nothing like the photos. It is very old and outdated. There was hair in the tub and stains on the counter. Beds are very uncomfortable as well as the pillows. We did not get any sleep as the hotel is right by the highway and you could hear cars, police, semi trucks all night long. Wifi would not connect to our devices. Free parking is nice. We were supposed to stay here 2 nights but ended up staying 1. Thank you to the managers who did refund our second night however they were lying to Orbitz saying no manager would be in until 12. I went downstairs and was able to get the issue resolved. Save your self a headache and don’t stay here.

The room was unique, very nice for what they were able to do. The restaurant was definitely unique. My only complaint is that the drains were extremely slow in the bathroom. But everything else was great!!

There was a large blood stain on bed pillow. Not sure how ANYONE could miss it. It was over 2 inches long and wide BLOOD. Mattress was stained and filthy. Windows were very dirty and there was hair everywhere. Phone was disconnected which everyone knew except us. I filed a complaint and I am calling your board of health. I don't care if you are a janitor, CEO, cook. Take PRIDE in your work. I have never ever stayed in a room that was that dirty. Pure laziness. The blood actually made me vomit. Are you trying to spread diseases?. I'd like to see the CEO stay in those rooms.

The description of the hotel online was totally different in person the swimming pool was dirty and the whole area stink so we didnt swim main reason we picked a hotel on arrival inside the room seems like the room was not clean only the bed was made too me it just wasn’t worth the money all in all the area around didn’t look pleasant at all don’t think we will ever stay at the hotel again or even visit Cincinnati again or covered in Kentucky

Hotel is pretty outdated but was decent. The ice maker didn't work on our floor but when told about it they just said to use ones on other floors.

for the pice no breakfast included

I loved everything about the property and the staff was attentive as could be. I would recommend this facility to anyone visiting the northern Kentucky area.

The check-in staff were friendly enough. However the restuarant staff at the restaurant at the top of the hotel were less than friendly. In fact, they were abrupt, unpleasant and terse. Our server felt the need to share with us that this was his third job and had a hard time staying awake. The restaurant itself was unclean and cluttered, apparently from a party that had ended. For what they charge at this tired and dreary hotel, is absurd.

The staff was really friendly, from the front desk to the cleaning ladies. The place could be updated some, my curtains had holes in them and my chair had a rip in the seat. They also had these tiny pillows on the bed. Great view of the city. Overall I would stay here again.

The hotel is located in a really good area. My room had a great view. However it is severely in need of a few renovations. The amenities and the room set up just seem to be out of date.

The AC would not get cold. The bathroom sink hot & cold handles weren’t aligned properly, and the faucet leaked

The ladies at the front desk were nice, and vey friendly. Igor there a little bit early but they were still able to get me checked in. I’d definitely would go back

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with this hotel. The round building was so cool and when I was 15, I asked to stay there for a night as my birthday present. It was so classy and special. Fast forward twenty years and I was visiting the area with my kids and booked a room there for a night. It was *way* more expensive than I wanted to pay but in line with what I expected from a fancy Radisson. Except when we got there, the shine was off that penny. The outside was a little run down, but it's an older building. The lobby was ok,but again, older building. The elevators were tiiiiny but they're original and lovely so I didn't mind. What I did mind was stepping out onto the floor and immediately knowing it used to be a smoking floor. In my room, I minded the dirty mirror, the low ceiling, the signs of water damage, the railings to assist people in the bathroom not raising correctly to allow them to be out of the way. The top cover of the bed had a coffee stain on it. The microwave buttons were so worn that you couldn't read them. To top it off, our view was of the interstate, which doesn't reflect on the quality of the room, it just added insult to injury. Also, there's no breakfast. You can pay to have a buffet breakfast downstairs but no complimentary muffins. Listen. I know I had built this place up in my memory and if it had just been a decent room, I would have happily continued to think of it as a nice property. But it was so bad and so overpriced.

Nice view of city
