“Great Location”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Family of 4 we stayed late April for a quck get away for our kid's birthday. We arrived at 9 pm and we could tell it was going to be a busy weekend at this hotel because the parking lot was nearly full. The wait for check in was delayed a little by a clerk who was working alone and struggling with keys that weren't working. This is the point where I could go off and complain about staffing levels, but I won't because the young woman was so polite and honest about her struggles that the three parties waiting to check in could see she was truly making lemonade out of lemons. The room was nice. Clean and with a great view of downtown Cincinnati. I paid a little extra for the view and thought it was worth. I took a big chance on traveling to a hotel without a pool with kids, but we were so close to entertainment that it was okay. Newport on the Levee is within walking distance and it has shopping, movies and lots of restaurants. There is a trolley stop right outside the hotel that will take you around. Lots of fun activities easily accessible from this location. Breakfast was great and clean. The hotel was nicely appointed and easy to locate. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: River view is worth the price

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your bringing your family to Newport, KY. Our hotel is within 3 blocks of the Newport Levee with a lot of activities for families to participate in such as the Newport Aquarium, Star Lanes, Theatre and themed Restaurants. Thank you for the kind words about our front desk staff, unfortunately we do not live in a perfect world and sometimes as much as we are proactive, things do malfunction. I am glad to see that she was able to assist you in a professional manner during a stressful situation. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the River View that your room offered. Some of our guest state that it is therapeutic to sit in front of the windows and watch the sunset as the moon rises above the Ohio River with the Cincinnati Skyline in the distance. Thank you for your kind comments once again about our hotel and staff. We definitely welcome you and your family back to once again experience Newport at our hotel.

I stayed two nights to explore Cincinnati and go to Reds games. The room was nice and spacious, and the staff was courteous and helpful. I arrived early in the morning and they held my luggage while I explored Newport until my room was ready. The breakfast was a typical hotel breakfast, but I liked the flavored waffles and raspberry lemonade.

There are several restaurants within walking distance and it is a short walk from Newport on the Levee. I didn't have a car but it is easy to get around. There is a Southbank Shuttle stop across the street from the parking lot that will take you to and from Cincinnati/Covington for $1. I went to two night games and felt safe when traveling back to the hotel on the shuttle.

Dear Guest,
You summed it up beautifully in your comments – no car needed while staying at the Comfort Suites Newport!! We are within walking distance of all the local attractions including the Cincinnati Reds and for those going out further in our area the Southbank Shuttle stops at our hotel and will take our guest around the Newport/Covington area and Cincinnati. A one way ticket is $1.00 and for only $3.00 one can purchase an all day pass. The Newport Levee, an entertainment and restaurant complex featuring the Newport Aquarium, is all within 3 blocks of our hotel. We invite you stay with us once again to explore and discover Northern Kentucky, the South Side of Cincinnati.

Dear Guest,
It is wonderful to hear that you and your wife were able to explore our area and take in some of our unique attractions. The antique shops in the area are full of items from Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati’s history that you can take home with you. The Cincinnati Reds are only a short distance away, either by cab, Southbank Shuttle, Water Taxi or just a short walk away via our pedestrian bridges. The Chart House, located directly behind our hotel is an amazing River View Restaurant that offers our guest one culinary delight after another. Please think of us again when you return to our region as we would be happy to have the opportunity to serve you and your spouse once again.

Pretty typical Comfort Inn and Suites, but the location was perfect for our needs. Apparently, a lot of activity in and around the Cincinnati area this weekend so the rate was outrageous. Room was clean, reasonably updated, with a mini-fridge and microwave. Big plus was a large number of outlets on the small desk. Breakfast had many options although the hot breakfast was meh. Good comfortable stay and would have rated it a 4 star had the rate been better.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for letting us know that you had a comfortable stay at our Comfort Suites Newport. I am happy to see that you enjoyed the amenities that your suite offered and our complimentary breakfast. During the first weekend of May the Flying Pig Marathon takes place in Cincinnati. Each year attendance has grown and we are proud to have this nationally recognized race so close to Northern Kentucky. This weekend also host the Newport Levee Chili Cook Off, the Cincinnati Reds Game and a numerous amount of other entertainment is occurring. Due to the activities our rates reflect the demand upon the area and our River Front Location next to Newport Levee. Please consider our hotel once again, perhaps when things are a little bit more quiet in our area.

Good stay for game day. There is a trolley that picks up at Joes Crab Shack (literally in the same parking lot as hotel) and takes you to the game for $1 or there is a water taxi that makes runs from hooters, which is pretty close to the hotel also. We walked to Newport on the Levee fairly easy however it rained throughtout our entire stay. Free breakfast was very appreciated, especially the free coffee more so than the food. Only down fall that I found was the parking. Covered parking was limited and the overflow lot is the next block up. Overall, good experiance, clean hotel and good staff.

Dear Guest,
Comfort Suites –Newport is happy to hear that you enjoyed the Cincinnati Reds Opening Week and our hotel. Our river front location makes it convenient for our guest to get to the attractions they came to Northern Kentucky to enjoy. There are so many ways to get where you need to be, with out any hassles. Due to our desired location for tourist our parking lot does get full, but we assure our guest that they will be able to park one vehicle free per room. We do hope that you will return again to enjoy another Cincinnati Reds game this season.

I have stayed here once for personal reasons and most recently for business. My room was spacious, clean and comfortable. They apparently have their own security person that roams the hotel. I saw him when I went to my room at 11 pm and when I left at 6 am. Nice to know things are secure.

The hotel is on a trolley stop, but it is an easy walk to get to Newport on the Levee (lots of restaurants) or you can walk across the Ohio River to ballparks, etc. Once you get to the hotel, it is easy access to lots of fun stuff. On this trip, I left too early for weekend breakfast, but it was what one would expect from my previous stay.

This was a nice hotel with a great location near downtown Cincinatti. The beds were very comfortable, room was clean and spacious. Staff was friendly and were helpful with information on local points of interest. Easy to get to with some nice restaurants nearby, it was about a 20-25 minute walk to US Bank Arena and the ball park, probably 1 1/4 mile and a little challenging in cold weather. It was a little pricey, but about average for the area. They didn't have a large common area or pool. Overall, I would stay here again for concerts, ball games, or whatever near downtown Cincy.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your comments concerning Comfort Suites, Newport, KY. We are delighted to see that you enjoyed our location. We are within walking distance of Newport Levee, which offers a wide assortment of restaurants and attractions including the Newport Aquarium. The Purple People Pedestrian Bridge is ideal to walk across when going to the Paul Brown Stadium home of the Cincinnati Bengals, The Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds and the US Bank Arena. At night our guest can enjoy the beautiful Cincinnati Skyline across the river as we do have River View Rooms. We do hope that you will return to our hotel and take advantage of all that the Greater Cincinnati Area as to offer.
