The lobby and common areas are a little dated, and the clientele is a little too urban. Being directly across the river from downtown Cincinnati, we expected a bit of a "downtown" feel, but it felt more like we were "across the river." The staff was generally courteous and helpful; however, I did find it interesting when I asked for local menus, I was given menus of only Covington, no Cinicinnati without specifically asking for it. (Realize that more people are coming to the are for Cincinnati, not Covington.) The A/C had been recently temporarily replaced and we could never figure out how to control it. The bath tub shower curtain was moldy too. Otherwise, the room was okay. The valet parking is not worth $24 / night and should be significantly reduced - street parking looked reasonable adequate and there didn't seem to be a big rush on the area. After this outing, I think I will suck it up and go to more upscale Hilton (or other) brands and miss the "free breakfast and manager's reception" crowd. In and of itself, these are fine, when the clientele sees them for what they are and appreciates it. When they don't it feels like you are at a $130 a night CiCi's or WalMart. If traveling through the area (I-75) and you really like Embassies, try the one in Lexington on Newtown Pike - much different feel.
