We couldn’t have chosen a better place to stay this past weekend. The hotel staff was friendly, our room was super clean, and the location was perfect. I’m very happy with every aspect of our stay and look forward to staying at 21c the next time we’re in Cincinnati.

Is there a pet fee?
I was traveling with a pet so I’m not sure, I’m sure a call to the hotel waould answer the question, they are quite helpful.
