“Very comfortable stay!”
Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

Just to get it out of the way..here are the negatives. ..parking, but of you don't mind valet then this shouldn't bother to you. Also the entrance is bland. We found it then second time around :) With that said the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in.The bed linens were soft.I did call down for extra pillows and they arrived in just minutes. The room was a nice size and the hard wood floor was beautiful. This was a super clean room with a city street view. I did hear hustle and bustle in the morning but..it was time to get up anyways. The tub/shower was small but deep. I loved the look of this hotel. I would recommend this hotel and would stay again.

This is the nicest hotel I have stayed in in the Cincinnati area. Located at Fountain Square and the center of the city. Walking distance to great eats as well as play( and I don't mean the club; that's another review). Shopping close by as well. There is no NEED to leave this property it has an excellent health club, sauna and all , as well as the Cricket Lounge (very reasonable drinks) and the Palace Restaurant. The combination of historic foundation with a contemporary twist makes this one of my favorites. Be sure to take the marble stairs probably the only set like them in the city. In short very nice staff, hotel, atmosphere and ambiance.

the parking garage is next door same as valet uses and is 5 bucks after 5pm for 9hrs or less instead of the 28 for valet.

What a great review! Thank you so much for taking the time to report about your stay! Our historic marble staircase is a true gem! Many important people have walked down those stairs and now we can add you to the list.
We hope you get to return for another visit!

So clean.. I had two rooms. They are pretty small for a suite.. And the one bed was small. But that aside.. They are very nice clean rooms.. My new favorite for Cincinnatti.. I hope to come back. This was my second time at this hotel. First time I was at the casino so long I didn't enjoy it.. But this was clean and quaint... Cup value is rated excellent. Because it was free for me..the adders is 601 vine.. But u have enter on the side.. So was hard to find..

Hotel had character, staff was friendly, location seemed good (but I was not in the city much). Sometimes these historic hotels show their age, this one was well maintained and appointed. Would definitely recommend.

We booked 2 nights at the Cincinnatian, arrived late on Friday and we were impressed with the room. It was tastefully done and everything was comfortable. The whirlpool tub was great and also enjoyed the fireplace. The location of the hotel is great right downtown, within walking distance to many restaurants, to the riverfront and to both stadiums. Skipped the valet parking, there are 2 garages on Vine within a block of the hotel and I got 2 days parking for less than 1 night valet.

Love this hotel in the heart of downtown Cincinnati! Elegant, classy hotel with 5-Star service. Although this hotel was built in 1882, you wouldn't know it. Completely renovated in 1987, it looks as though it was done yesterday and is quite refined. Rooms are spacious with lovely carpeting and furnishings, and beds are very comfy! Bathrooms have his and her sinks with Gilchrist & Soames amenities, including make-up remover and mouthwash. Rooms are quiet, and we weren't bothered by street noise. The hotel is located within walking distance of shopping (Macy's very close by) and restaurants, and is also close to the new Horseshoe casino and participates it's free shuttle service, so you don't have to drive. Coffee is not available in the rooms, but is complimentary in the lobby. I suspect this is to keep the lovely carpeting from being stained. If you want comfort, class, service, and refinement, you'll love the Cincinnatian Hotel.

Room Tip: Loved our room w/a king-sized bed!

The Cincinnatian Hotel is elegant and opulent. We had a queen bedded room. It was renovated to modern standards. Marble floors with throw rugs. A plasma tv. Fine linens. The bathroom shower was fabulous with a rain shower head, two side spray showers, and a wand. There were four different controls. It was very modern. A large single-person jucuzzi tub. Fine soaps and shampoos. Very luxurious. The bell staff and front desk staff were gracious and friendly. I would highly recommend the Historic hotel for a fine stay.

Room Tip: A Panera Restaurant is across the street and opens at 6AM if you are an early-bird. We did go there...
