This was our second staycation at the Cincinnatian. Not sure we'll make it three. Hit or miss with staff. Some answered questions with a shrug and a meh. Others went out of their way to answer. We were in a deluxe queen room. Apparently it was renovated but wallpaper was peeling in several places. No coffee in room and urn...

The Cincinnatian is a cozy, Historic, Boutique Hotel in Downtown Cincinnati. I have had the opportunity to stay there twice. The first time I stayed I did not write a review. The reason I did not write a review was because my stay was not that great due to excessive noise. I know the reputation of the hotel and figured...

the cincinnatian hotel proved, despite a bump in the road, they are trying hard to keep up the standard during an ownership change. we had an issue, though quite intrusive, was handled professionally by management with an offer to rectify without my asking. i appreciate the effort.

Been here a number of times. Cool older hotel, nice rooms good size for downtown. Not overly expensive great for a night on the town. Decent breakfast at the restaurant in the hotel. Great valet parking.

I am from Northern Kentucky but have never stayed at the Cincinnatian until this past weekend. I did, however, spend about 20 hours there in 2001 in the alleyway waiting for *NSYNC to come out of the hotel and head to the stadium where they were having a concert. The Cincinnatian was always a place where the celebrities stayed. My...

This is not the typical luxury large hotel. If you like different, boutique kind of accommodations, it is a great place to try. The location is good. It has a good, small, quiet full bar and the great Palace restaurant is on premises. Definitely a place to come back to. I just wish they would have better coffee to call...

Had a three day stay here for a business trip, location is fantastic, lots of places to see, eat and drink all within easy walking distance . Nice welcome at reception and lovely room, large bathroom. Bar staff are great and have great tips and recommendations. Only had breakfast in hotel but that was great as well.

Returned to Cincinnati to accompany my son who was interviewing at UC and to see some old friends. Never stayed here before but in looking at previous reviews, they're pretty accurate. Old, historic hotel that seems to be trying to update itself with modern rooms. Staff are ok, but definitely not attentive as the prevailing attitude seems to be that...

I stayed in this hotel for business. I'm not sure if it was my late arrival or how I booked, but my colleague had a much nicer room. Her room was modern and spacious. My room was small and dated. The service was not what I'd expect from a downtown hotel. I didn't find the staff to be friendly and...
