“Great weekend choice”
Reviewed 5 October 2011

The hotel is remarkably well-appointed. The room was very spacious -- our studio had a king bed, a sitting area, a dinette and a full kitchen. The bed was excellent, perhaps even more comfortable than my own! The bathroom was well-sized. The hotel's decor is stylish and beautiful. The staff was attentive and helpful. Valet parking was $20 for our whole stay (not per night). The weekend rate was $139/night -- a bargain!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for family business. It was an excellent location for us, but I can see how tourists may feel there isn't enough to do in the immediate vicinity. This is the business district, so many restaurants were closed and the streets were desolate at night. But the hotel is only a few blocks from the football stadium, so we saw many fans at breakfast Sunday morning.

Newly restored building with huge rooms, actually most likely designed for long term stay. Easy access to downtown, nice restaurant and snack area.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the park, ie street

I travel extensively for the Department of Criminal Justice System. When traveling, I have learned to seek out the best hotel/motel available. The Residence Inn Cincinnati Downtown, made me feel as if I was staying at the Ritz in Grand Cayman (which I have stayed at). From the initial phone call, I was WAY impressed. I have already confirmed reservations to go back! Everything was as one would expect and then some! Service 10! Quality 10! Professioinalism 10! Food 10! If you are staying in Cincinnati and you don't stay here...YOU WILL REGRET IT!!

My husband and I booked this hotel in July while visiting a special exhibit at the Museum center in Cincinnati. What a gem this hotel is. The location was within easy walking distance of one of our favorite restaurants at Fountain Square. We also enjoyed the architecture of the building and that of others in this lovely neighborhood. Our room, which, overlooked the park across the street, was spacious as others have indicated. The downstairs bar was a plus as well as the nice courtyard area. We will definitely book this hotel again. Wonderful!

This is a terrific hotel, conveniently located downtown, within easy walking distance of Great American Ballpark, Bengals stadium, National Underground Railroad Center, etc. Rooms are spacious, with small kitchen, very nice sitting area, king bed, enormous flat screen TV. It has a very nice bar (with modest bar food menu). The complimentary breakfast is outstanding. Desk staff and valet parking staff are very professional, friendly and efficient. It's a little on the pricey side, but it's one of the few hotels in this price range I would say merit the expense.

The only negative was that the air conditioning didn't get the room quite as cool as we would have liked. It was a very moderate "negative."

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the park (front) side of the hotel. Beautiful view.

Booked a random weekend getaway and booked this Residence Inn based on Trip Advisor ratings/reviews. We were not disappointed! The location was within walking distance of the restaurant we wanted to visit. The interior was nicely updated. Every staff member we encountered was extremely pleasant and helpful. Our one bedroom suite was clean and the kitchen was well-appointed. We both enjoyed the included full breakfast and wide selection of options each morning. The patio/fountain area was a nice and serene outdoor space. I have no complaints! One piece of advice for penny-pinchers is that we declined valet service and instead opted for parking meter spaces. We didn't have any issues finding a spot all four times we needed one. If you plan on spending a lot of time in your room you will need to feed the meter every 2 hours- pretty sure that was from 9a-4 or 5pm for us on Sat but we were out and about anyway so it didn't impact our stay and we were happy. Lovely stay all-around.
