I had no problem with the Millennium Hotel during my stay in Cincinnati and would stay there again. I've stayed in many downtown hotels and often times the rooms are on the small side because space is at a premium and they opt for quantify over quality.
The good: Guest service agents were friendly and efficient. I was moved through the check-in and check-out process swiftly and my bill was accurate. The room was extremely clean and quiet. My room had been recently rehabbed. The bathroom amenities were adequate. The elevators were fast and always available despite the volume of guests. I secured a rate that was between a third and a half of what I would have paid at other hotels in the immediate area. It is three quarters of a mile to Great American Ballpark which is easily walkable.
The bad: They are building a parking structure next door, so one could be subjected to noise in the early hours (they started before 7am). I was in an area of the hotel away from the noise. Much of the common areas seem older and dated.
Reality: Temper your expectations and realize there are reasons why their rates are so reasonable based upon the location. You are paying for the convenience of being in the city, and a little research will find you an incredible rate based upon where you are. City hotel rooms are often smaller than in the outlying areas.
The parking is reasonably priced compared to any major city or any other property in the immediate area. I parked for free on the street after 6pm, moved to paid parking across the street ($6 until 2pm or $12 all day, and a block and a half from the hotel) for the daylight hours. You can park in front of the hotel while checking in and move your vehicle across the street - a three minute walk - and save some money.
For what I paid, I received everything I expected. If I were paying the rack rate, I would look elsewhere.
