Cincinnati, Ohio
Reviewed 29 July 2016

Left a message in the morning and no one called back. Called them back and they passed me from person to person. Online price didn't match phone price. Said they would hold the room while the price was clarified. I called back and they said they gave the room away. It was obvious they didn't care. Bad management.

Hi David, We sincerely apologize for your experience booking with us yesterday. I believe we spoke with your wife on the phone.

First word of advice, if you are looking for a quiet place keep looking. Although everything wrapped up around 11pm. The Symphony Hotel is a blend of a fine boutique hotel and a B&B. The staff treated you as if you were staying in a B&B but it had some amenities of a finer hotel. You could have a 3...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us Denise. To note, on weekends our head chef Stu comes in to the hotel to prepare a full brunch for hotel guests. However, this is only on Saturday and Sunday. Monday-Friday we offer the more minimal continental breakfast with freshly prepared hot egg options. Looking forward to having...

Great location in OTR district. Easy walk downtown, too. Friendly, polite staff, very helpful and hospitable hostess, Collene. We stayed on the top floor of the new section in the Copeland room which was quiet, spacious and comfortable. Although I prefer a king sized bed due to my husband's and my height (a bunch of long legs, arms and pillows),...

This is a unique hotel near the OTR area of Cincinatti. The owner, Colleen, was very helpful and cheerful. The rooms are tastefully decorated in various musical themes. We stayed in the Mozart room and the decor was amazing. Breakfast was simple but good. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay in a great part of the city.

Right across the street from Cincinnati Music Hall and within walking distance to The Anchor and Zula restaurants. Very much like a bed and breakfast, but with your own private bathroom. Very friendly and helpful staff. Wasn't there on weekend to try hotel restaurant.

We at the hotel are delighted you enjoyed your stay! It is too bad you didn't get a chance to experience our two, three, or five course meal on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night. We also do a fantastic Sunday brunch, also open to the public and not solely hotel guests like other days. We're looking forward to see you...

The restoration of a historic building has created an interesting and enjjoyable combination of a hip music-themed inn with rooms furnished with antique furniture and furnishings. The breakfast was superb. The manager, Coleem (?), was friendly and very accomodating. The room was just a little small, but it was so nicely furnished, we were okay with that.

Spent the night in the Rachmaninov Room, then enjoyed a breakfast that a tsar would've loved. Great facility with real antique furnishings, and the best hostess, Colleen! Wonderful Over the Rhine location, with lots of shops, bars, and restaurants nearby. Or you could have dinner in the on-site restaurant- one of best in the area. It's also right across the...

Stayed in the Mozart room as a birthday celebration. We are local to the Cincinnati area and actually hadn't heard much about the hotel or restaurant, but decided to check it out for dinner and a night's stay. Couldn't have been more happier with our decision to try it out. The hotel has a great location for eating at the...

We enjoyed a lovely evening with another couple at the Symphony Hotel restaurant. Each of us had a different entre and all were delicious. The atmosphere is charming and cozy and service was good. Fun place to go before or after and event downtown.
