4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Really great stay! Beautiful hotel, incredibly nice wait staff and comfy bed. Would recommend checking out a little early if you valet park to avoid the wait. Highly recommended, especially if you're in town for a Reds game!

Very high end property in Cincinnati. A block and a half away from Fountain square, equally so to the riverfront. The rooms are large with high ceilings and are well appointed. It is designed in a minimalist fashion.
Service was great, with the staff fixing problems as one arose upon check in.
Breakfast in the restaurant was way above average. Typically hotel breakfasts are not remarkable, but this one was incredible with attention to detail at every end.

The hotel is a former bank with great architectural details. The ballroom was incredible.
The executive lunge is on the ground floor facing street side, which is a little odd. It was closed while I was there so didn't have a chance to visit it, but it looks interesting.
I had a junior suite which was incredibly spacious, including a full sitting area, bar, separate bedroom, etc.
The street noise is loud for a newly renovated hotel with a room facing 4th street. Even on the 12th floor you can hear post game revelers on the street as well as traffic.
Despite the night noise, Highest marks, though!

I always try to stay at Marriotts and decided to try this newly opened and renovated hotel. You never know what your going to get, but this is a home run! They just recently opened from renovating and old hotel. Their is still some minor signs of some final touches being done but it's phabulous. Very modern, the lounge and dinning area is very well designed and very modern looking. The room we got was in top shape. Concierge area is very elegant and right on first floor. The work out room has lots of space and equipment. We were in for a Bengals game and the hotel is very close walking distance to Paul Brown Stadium. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Plan on the 15 minutes they tell you to get your vehicle from the valle service. If you get a chance check out the second floor ball room. Breath taking to say the least. We will definitely stay here again! Enjoy!

I recently stayed one night with my husband when we came to town for a Reds game/concert in Newport. The hotel was wonderful! The location was great - an easy walk to many restaurants and the ballpark. The room was beautiful, with a very modern look and one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, and a sparkling clean and modern bathroom as well. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and competent. We'll definitely be back!

This is one of the prettiest properties I have stayed in comparing it to the Las Vegas location. Ornate ironwork and Brass meets your eye when you enter. They did not try to hide the fact this is an old building but you would not know it from the rooms. State of the art Walk in showers that are easy to enter and exit. The roundabouts are not new but feel like they were just put in so it an easy walk in. New staff but old pros like they were just looking for a better home to work in. The Chef is amazing and the food is out of this world.
Well done Cincinnati!

We stayed at the hotel for our anniversary the first week it was open. The hotel was beautiful and clean Got it at a good price and great location. The best part of the stay was the service. Rebecca and staff were friendly and provided outstanding service. They were aware that it was our anniversary, so they had a treat for use in our room when we returned from the night out. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in town.

Nothing like a new fresh hotel. This place is hip, convenient, reasonably priced, huge rooms, comfy, clean, modern -- all the things you look for in a new hotel. Waiter in restaurant told me this was a $48 million investment In an old office building. The money shows. They've been open a few weeks only and a few kinks here and there, but nothing significant. The staff is friendly, eager, and professional in every way. Strong kudos to them all. Fitness center has everything you need for a travel workout. My ONLY criticism that is not entirely positive is that the lighting I the room is a bit harsh and at the same time shadowed. I would have a hard time doing work at night with the set up. My colleague who stayed in another room noted the same thing. But aside from this straight A's all around. Looking forward to returning.
