If you forget anything in the room after you leave you will never see it again. Also the riverview is more a view of the garbage piles than of the river. The repairs going on is the best part of the hotel.

Hotel is undergoing renovations. The fitness area needs improvements. Lots of improvement. And breakfast needs an update. very few healthy choices. The staff is very friendly and eager to help. Easy access to Downtown Cincinnati.

We stayed one night at the Hampton Inn Cincinnati Riverfront as our half way point while traveling for the Holiday. We then changed our reservation to another hotel for our return stay. The room was aged, the bathroom dirty, some kind of mystery dirt also smeared on the wall next to the bed. Dust in the vents. Mold growing on...

Thank you for your review, I apologize you did not have a good experience that we strive to provide for all our guests. We will have a beautiful hotel again when renovations are complete end of January, but that does not excuse a dusty room. I appreciate the kind comments on our staff members.

We blocked 20 rooms for wedding guests and the local manager helped book transportation to and from the hotel to our venue. Everyone was very friendly, the check in process was easy and quick and the rooms were nice, clean and nicely laid out. Thanks for a great experience and a special touch in our room the night of our...

This Hampton was below par, and should be in jeopardy of losing the Hilton brand. I am a loyal Hilton patron, and a silver honors member. I have stayed at nearly every kind of Hilton, including several Hamptons. The Hampton in Covington was, without a doubt, the worst experience I ever had in any Hilton hotels. Let me first say...

We are getting ready to start a complete renovation Dec/Jan but that doesn't have anything to do with the lack of attention you found in your guest room. I have corrected issues in the room and...

Stayed 2 nights while in town for work. Check in went really fast and they were very helpful with recommendations for dinner. Nice room and very clean. It was a nice perk that they offer breakfast. Hard to complain about a free breakfast, but the eggs were pretty rough. They did offer a wide variety of other choices. I would...

We chose the hotel to be closed to downtown Cincinnati and that is accurate. The neighborhood is a little sketchy but not unsafe. The breakfast on the other hand needed a lot of help. We only had options of waffles, eggs, and turkey sausage. There was ample cereal but was looking forward to a hot breakfast. Not at all what...

We came for a wedding in Cincinnati. This was a great location. Used Uber to travel to and from the hotel. It was easy to find and there were plenty of restaurants close by, including the famous Skyline Chili that my kids love (stayed open to 3:00am on Saturday night). In addition, there were convenient gas stations on the way...

The hotel was a standard Hampton Inn. It was clean and the staff was friendly. The biggest negative for me was the area. There were boarded up houses just across the street, a liquor store and carry out in the same parking lot, people standing on the street corner...the area was very sketchy! The front desk staff was very helpful....

I always only choose the Hilton brand when I travel and this hotel certainly met my high expectations of a hotel. Easy check in, nice clean hotel and guest room, complimentary breakfast and helpful staff. Will definitely stay again
