Reviewed 3 April 2016

Not like the pictures:( Pool was clean but surrounding area had peeling paint and was dirty. Room seemed small and very out dated. I understand there was a renovation happening, but still seemed very dark and dirty. For the money I spent, I expected more!

I recently migrated from another hotel chain in Cincinnati/Covington downtown area to this Radisson and I couldn't be more pleased. I will not stay anywhere else in Cincinnati/Covington going forward. The staff is always ready to accommodate you, the views are amazing from their tower, and their property is centrally located to restaurants, bars, and local attractions close by; some...

Checkin was a little rough due to hotel was booked. Event room rented for large even my was beautiful and spacious. Plenty of parking. Very clean facility! Nice small walkout balcony. Bathroom door handle was broke and locked me in the bathroom for over 20 minutes. Thought I was going to have to brake the door off the hinges.

We stayed here because of the Newport aquarium package. It was well worth the money and the trolley took us to and from. Staff was very friendly. Hotel room was clean but the bathroom was VERY small! Pool was also dirty (dead bugs/hair/dirt floating on top).

The noise from interstate kept me up most the night and bed being so hard made it difficult as well! The sheet was on upside down and bathroom had paint peeling off ceiling. I was mislead in Web page saying they used sleep number beds.

Thank you for choosing the Radisson. We are very sorry your stay was not more enjoyable. The beds are all fairly new Simmons pillow top mattresses, but of course everyone has their own preferences on how they like there mattress. We have not had sleep number beds for a while now. I know it is removed from all the websites...

My family and I (2 adults and 2 children ages 3 & 6) stayed at the Radisson on March 12th for a weekend trip to the aquarium. I got a great deal on this hotel and after looking up the photos and reviews, I thought it would be on for one night... When we first arrived we noticed some renovations...

I am very sorry the hotel was not up to your standards but I think you were being a little unfair with your review. We checked you in at 10:40am which is over four hours before check in time and then after being in the room all that time we allowed you to move rooms and then we had to...

Location- close to the highway, lots of fast food restaurants in vicinity. Neg-highway noise, neighborhood questionable. Hotel pub Food service slow but well prepared. Rooms have new decor and linens but beds are hard. Shower has great water pressure. If you sleep very sound, like a hard bed, and are not concerned about rundown area, you will be fine, but...

On behalf of our entire staff at Radisson we apologize for the concerns you shared about your experience at this hotel. The hotel has recently added a second window/door to all the balconies to help with the noise. It is imperative that both doors remained closed all the way for optimum sound barrier. The beds are also new, but everyone...

Reviewed 13 March 2016 via mobile

The room we stayed in was normal. Highway noise, ac/fan in room loud, ice machine loud in the hallway kept us awake. Not worth the money they charge. Not a family place area or hotel. Pool and hot tub are overfilled with chlorine. I stay in a hotel numerous times a year and this was not up to par.

We are very sorry you did not think the hotel was up to par. We are in the middle of a multi-million dollar renovation where all the rooms will be totally redone as well as much of the public areas. We have already replaced all the beds and painted all the rooms. The corridor carpet, room carpet and wall vinyl...
