If you are visiting Cincinnati for a romantic weekend, a business meeting, or a casino getaway, this downtown hotel property offers everything the discerning traveler may need to feel right at a home, in comfortable, yet luxurious accommodations. While it is able to boast the prestigious label of Cincinnati's only small luxury hotel, the Cincinnatian is absolutely no stranger to...

An classic old downtown hotel. The reception staff and especially the doorman were exceptional in service and advice. The parking is either valet or at one of the local public parking garages-several were full-we elected valet. The room was partially updated and somewhat cramped compared to newer hotels but on pare with similarly aged hotels-we previously stay at the Hilton...

The Palace restaurant's 5 course Valentine's dinner was exceptional in every way. With a well thought out menu, every course was a culinary surprise of flavors and textures. From the opening amuse bouche of a heart shaped cracker filled with a liquid cheese that burst with flavor to the final trio of panna cotta, the entire dinner was exceptional in...

I purchased a deal off Travelzoo and wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Staff was friendly and very service oriented. My room was recently renovated and I loved it. Great artwork. Nice vanity with bright lit mirrors and a huge walk in shower. My deal included breakfast and parking for $139 a night. I ordered breakfast each...

I stay at this hotel frequently for business--and even though I could go to a different one in the area, I always return to the Cincinnatian because of its charm and because of the people who work there. I've stayed in 4 different rooms, all of which have been elegant and very different from each other, with a variety of...

We stayed Saturday evening, February 7th and the room was beautiful!!! The bathroom was fit for royalty with heated floors. I loved the deep soak tub with chromotherapy lights and the shower was HUGE with double rain shower heads and side rain bars. I felt like a Queen. We were not in our room 5 minutes when they brought the...

Worst hotel I have stayed in, location was horrible, no parking unless you valet then they don't tell you it cost $30 dollars to get your car back, we had to carry our own bags we were offered no assistant from anyone, I have had better service from a 2 star hotel never again.

We have dined and stayed at the Cincinnatian a number of times, even though we live in Cincinnati. this time we were attending an event at the Aranoff Center, so decided to stay downtown for the night. Great reception desk folks, pretty nice room, but we thought it was in need of some upgrades. An example would be the old...

We stayed at the Cincinnatian thanks to a Travelzoo deal. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The front desk staff was probably the most friendly staff at reception I have ever encountered. The fact that the hotel was not very busy might have helped that. The room on the 6th floor featured hardwood floors, a faux fireplace, a spacious bathroom with...
