Will definitely return to this Hampton since it is central to many entertainment venues. It is priced a little better than Cincinnati hotels without sacrificing quality and value. Welcoming staff that obviously takes pride in their work.

I've stayed here several times for training. Staff is nice, rooms are quiet and clean, breakfast options are pretty good. There's a liquor store right next to the hotel that looks kind of sketchy, but I've not had any issues or felt unsafe at any point.,

Stayed here a few times over the last year. This brand name hotel usually has good quality. I had to call 3-4 times to have my running toilet repaired (always a thrill to listen too each night). The cleanliness was marginal. The location is good proximity to downtown but the surrounding area is pretty scary unsafe at night. No decent...

Thank you for the feedback from your stay. I apologize for the very inconvenient running of the toilet in your room, I remember maintenance tried unsuccessfully to correct the problem and glad one night was deducted from your stay. Sincerley, Beth Wuestefeld

We booked this hotel over the Labor Day weekend. Yes, it was a holiday weekend, and therefore, the hotel should have been better prepared for that than they were. Check in time is 3:00 pm, when we arrived were told there were no rooms available and we'd have to wait, and then they could not even give an approximate wait...

This hotel is located next door to a liquor store and cigarette shop, both with bars across the windows. Several people hanging out at both locations. Hotel itself is run down. I would recommend families pass on this one!

First must say this location is pricey for typical Hampton Inn but this is not a typical Hampton Inn!! Beautiful historic building in the middle of downtown Cincinnati with spacious, completely modern rooms. Near to many restaurants, shopping, and businesses. Walking distance to riverfront, baseball stadium, fountain square, etc. Courteous valets, attentive staff, well stocked breakfast, clean facility.

Thank you, however, it seems this review was meant for the Hampton Inn Downtown which used to be the Cincinnati Enquirer building. I agree, they did a wonderful job renovation and keeping the historical value :) Beth Wuestefeld

Disappointed with the overall quality of this Hampton, not up to par with other Hamptons I've stayed. Furnishing are outdated, carpet in the room was extremely dirty and sticky. I would hope this location will be refreshing its rooms soon.

Hotel is very mediocre in everything. Parking lot is too small for this number of rooms, and those arriving after 9pm have to double park. Breakfast is very so-so, and not impressive like what I am used to in Hampton Time Square. Finally cleaning of the shower is nearly non-existent, I think service girl just turns hot water on for...

Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Especially Zack who assisted us at check in and with the lost flowers. The staff were very welcoming and made our stay a pleasant one. The room was clean and the breakfast was good. The location was convenient to a variety of venues.

Check in was simple and staff was friendly. But the room was gross. It was very dusty around beds and night stand. There were visible food bits behind night stand. 4 spiders smashed onto walls. Highly dissatisfied!
