Stephanie Weber

I had my wedding hotel block at this hotel and would not recommend for a wedding block or event The hotel was noticeably understaffed and it was a very busy weekend in Cincinnati (Flying Pig Marathon) despite our wedding The Marriott App didn’t link with the hotel, and so check in was more complicated and no early check in was available

I had NO turn down service/new towels/housekeeping when I returned back to my room on wedding night, although I asked the front desk for this (checked in Friday, and no one came by Saturday) Rooms, in my opinion, are relatively small but are modern and clean During the planning process, I had to overall “work with” at least three separate sales/marketing directors, and even the regional and general director due to, I assume, staffing issues Galen, unlike Olivia and Gina, was very responsive but I feel as if all the work I put into it with him was not well utilized I tried to avoid room issues prior to the weekend— had to send names and hotel confirmation numbers for guests, run the list many times, and we still had issues of guest reservations not being able to be found, guests being given incorrect rooms because too many people with same last name, guests being accidentally checked out, etc This was disappointing because I tried to prepare and avoid this prior to the weekend Valet was wonderful upon check in and check out, but they were overwhelmed and were bringing people wrong cars (thankfully we are all family) These are just to name a few things I understand it was a busy weekend in Cincinnati; but a Marriott hotel should be able to handle this Overall, extremely unimpressed and would not recommend to a friend and would certainly not recommend for a wedding block/event This was by far my most stressful “vendor” to work with Because of that, we stayed in a different hotel the next evening prior to our flight

We actual originally picked this hotel because it was pet-friendly and we were traveling with our chocolate lab But I would definitely pick to stay here again when I’m in Cinci next time regardless of whether our pup was with us or not! The hotel and our room was clean, modern, and well taken care of And the staff was just amazing! All very friendly/welcoming and helpful staff members from the front desk to housekeeping who always asked us if we needed anything when we saw her

Mostly as a joke before we arrived, I asked that there be a bag of treats waiting for our pup in our room in the comments section when we booked the room He was overjoyed to find a bag of treats waiting for him! And staff gave him treats at the front desk frequently Great hotel, great location, great staff!

Disappointing beyond belief Our wedding reception venue is a 2 minute walk from this new hotel and as hard as we tried to book a block of rooms (without a discount) here, we were turned away at every opportunity I first reached out to Gina K, Their sales/ marketing lead, in September of 2021

After leaving 2-3 voicemail messages and receiving no reply a month later, I visited the hotel in person to hopefully chat in person I was told Gina was not in the office but again given her phone number I called again 3 times in October and November 2022, still to no avail Finally, in early December I contacted the front desk asking for the email address of someone who could give us just a little bit of information I was given Ginas email and reached out 3 times before receiving a curt reply that this hotel does not offer hotel blocks I replied to Gina explaining while I do not expect a discount, I would like to know if possible to secure ~30 rooms together, guaranteeing occupancy for 2 nights each It is now February 2022 and after following up several times to my email and leaving yet another voicemail, my question has not been answered Our wedding venue claims they have worked with this hotel since it opened but it appears the Kinley and their sales/ marketing department led by Gina have no interest in doing their job 5 months later we are finished trying to patronize this new Cincinnati hotel

Honestly, I could not come up with one negative thing about staying at this hotel The persons working the front desk were all polite, welcoming and helpful The restaurant staff as well were attentive

The room was clean and comfortable The decor of this hotel is be on belief You will not regret staying here Okay, there is one negative I had a work van with a height of 8’ 4” and none of the indoor garage in the area could accommodate it so we had to meter street park a block and a half away I’m glad it wasn’t raining or snowing Oh well, you can’t have it all, right?Check out the pictures and enjoy your stay If this review helps, please like

Kelly Davis

First Mark Man that helps you with your luggage is the hardest working man in the hotel Please give him a raise immediately The hotel history is fantastic

The art deco is fantastic The rooms are small I asked for a coffee in the restaurant during their breakfast they wanted to charge me 275?!? There was a pot sitting there with to go cups and they said it would cost me… okay no Okay place Hard-working employees

Matt Ernst

We stayed the weekend due to the location of a venue we were attending The front desk was professional, but didn’t seem to care about your stay, possibly due to a fully booked hotel and understaffed? We used the app to check in at 5pm, but our room wasn’t ready until 7:30 which was very unfortunate after a long road trip The room itself was very small, which I get you’ll find in some of the more historical hotels, but it was dirty

The floor wasn’t swept, you could see chips and crumbs on the floor, noticeable dust on the floor, the bedding had ripped fabric, and the bathroom didn’t appear to be cleaned I’m a huge coffee drinker, the coffee maker didn’t work, there was coffee, but no cups, so that was a bit annoying (I did track down housekeeping and they were able to get a replacement for us which was great) The mini fridge was very warm, so we had to pull out the unit to turn down the temp and it was disgusting, literally a layer of black dust coating the top The hotel was totally booked, and with several concerts downtown, there were no other available properties to book at the last minute so we just decided to make the best of it Our next day we messaged the hotel for fresh towels and coffee cups, but nothing, maybe their messaging service was down We did not contact the front desk directly because the front desk didn’t seem to care about any of our initial concerns We did reach out to the Hilton Customer Service Department Now for the good The location is great, 3 minute walk to the stadium, the security guards, support staff, bar and restaurant service was great, very friendly If you’re staying on the weekend, a lot of the shops and restaurants in the vicinity will be closed (only open during the week supporting local businesses) so just be prepared for that And by chance if you’re a cigar smoker, there a fantastic cigar shop right around the corner (about a block away) with great prices and selection!

I have nothing but amazing things to say about this place It’s a stunning hotel located close to the river Beautiful escape with fantastic amenities

Staff goes above and beyond for the guests Everyone was so kind and helpful! Cars are valeted with 2 optional chargers for EVs Gym on the lower floor is small but well kept The rooms are very clean Loved my king suite with soak tub, perfect for a relaxing bath The rooftop conference room was a nice space for meetings and the catered food was delicious The bar in the lobby had great drinks as well What a luxurious stay! If you’re looking to splurge, definitely check out this hotel

Erin Duffley

My husband and I came down for a quick, one-night stay to celebrate our anniversary The hotel was beautiful, the suite they upgraded us to was flawless, and the hotel staff, from the valet to the young woman who checked us in, were all friendly and helpful The location was also fantastic

Great views of downtown, and the walk to Fountain Square was only about ten minutes A special thanks to Krystal, a manger, who must have noticed I was pregnant and had a bottle of sparkling grape juice chilled for us when we returned to our room after dinner Such a sweet touch that made our little getaway even more special Definitely the place to stay in Cincinnati

Ebk M

Beautiful historic hotel, impeccable attention to detail, spacious rooms and luxurious retreat! Everything is super clean, it will be a pleasure to stay here again next time I come to Cincinnati Also very conveniently located, many restaurants within walking distance, and gorgeous indoor spaces & outdoor patios/rooftop if you prefer to dine at the hotel

The hotel itself is beautiful and the view is amazing!! The rooms are okay, they could probably use some updating and the cleanliness of the room was okay The girl who checked me out was so friendly and had great customer serviceI would definitely stay again if I’m ever in the area!!

Sasha Falls

This hotel is by far one of the most beautiful downtown unfortunately I did not get to stay at my last visit, as the Front desk would not let me check in I was assured by the paying party that my name was left at the desk as she was assured she did not have to leave me a key in that everything would be taken care of This however was not the case and I was not allowed to go up to my room that was already paid for, mind you I had already checked my car into the valet (tipped) and had my bags in hand

Not the best customer service as I have had fewer problems at far less expensive hotels and much more friendly staff to want to fix the problem I definitely will not be back here and I will not recommend this hotel in the future to others //Unfortunately the hotel made no attempt to contact me to correct this unfortunate experience even after contacting support Customer care is lacking greatly

Chad Worsham

I’m underwhelmed by this hotel The hosts at the front desk were friendly and cheerful, but they forgot to greet us as ‘valued members’ and no points or gift was offered And they charged us for valet parking, which we did not

The location is prime if you’re attending a game, but otherwise this property is not worth the exorbitant rate

Make sure to use Hᴏᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any stay This website will compare countless booking websites and normally will have rooms a lot cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This resort is the best rated in the area

I have been staying here for a very long time If you stay for a few days you for sure won’t be let downEverything about my stay was wonderful! The staff was very friendly and welcoming! Room was clean and modern And view was amazing I can honestly say this would be in my top 3 of hotel experiences! I will definitely book here the next time I’m in town

Brie Welch

Hotel is very clean, and feels modern If not a bit quiet even Hotel room was extremely spacious, clean, and bed was comfortable

Only disappointment was there was no hot-tub with the pool Gym was big and had everything you could need Staff was friendly, helpful and personally loved the atrium effect Good views of Ohio, rivers and bridges And close enough to walk to downtown – about 23 min over the bridge Would certainly stay again

Mary Regan

My sister, niece and I were there for an event and stayed 2 nights The staff was friendly and the room was great The view was phenomenal

the valet staff was witty and engaging each time we needed them The event was there in the hotel and I hope it will be again next year as I will be back and look forward to staying with you all again The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was when I checked in the front desk said I had a King room but I had booked a 2 queen room and was told I would have to take the king but then another associate indeed found me the room I booked I was given complimentary breakfast tickets which I thought was a nice touch The breakfast buffet was good

Jo-Anna Benton

On a whim My bf had me come to this hotel as a little staycation I found the views to and from our room to be the best part of us staying there The gentlemen at the front desk were also very friendly

After a long night of enjoying our getaway We were disappointed to find the whirlpool that we were going to indulge in before checking out was no longer available It had been filled in and tiled over w a patio table on top We certainly were looking forward to that a bonus relaxation to a great night Should’ve been alerted to that change when reservations were made

Kyle Hoylman

The hotel advertises itself as pet-friendly, but upon arrival to check in advises that a NON-REFUNDABLE $250 pet fee is required This fee was not disclosed when the room was booked We cancelled our reservation on the spot and stayed at the hotel next door for less than the pet deposit at this location

As a long-time Marriott client, this whole experience was disappointing If you are seeking a pet-friendly hotel in the Greater Cincinnati area, take this Marriott location off our your list

Rebekah Hunter

We really liked this apartment It was very clean and spacious It was convenient to downtown, and there was parking right across the street for a very reasonable price

We did have trouble with the keypad for the building, which I won’t hold against the property itself because I understand it’s the building owner who is responsible for that, but they did have someone on the property at the time of check in who was able to help us, and there is a key card once you enter the room that worked just fine Also, the little convenience store in the lobby was a nice surprise

Amy D

Not sure if there is any actual on site staff but did see a security guard in the lobby a few timesSupport was virtual but always accessible, had a slight issue with the thermostat and it was promptly resolvedOur suite was actually more like a studio apartment with full kitchen, high ceilings and very comfortable

The building is older – as are the elevators but we mainly used the stairs so wasn’t an issue – but the suites are very modernizedOverall we enjoyed it and would stay there again

bree williams

If you are not familiar with the area, the property can be difficult to find This was my first “virtual staffing” experience with a hotel, so it was odd not having someone there to greet you & tell you about the area I flew in from Los Angeles and so staff made accommodations to have my room prepared for early check in

That was much appreciated! I wasn’t aware the front door code was emailed to me, so I was waiting maybe 5 min to get inside of the property No big deal The room was nice! The only thing I noticed, was that it seemed like cleaning was rushed There was dust and dirt in all corners of the room and there were strands of hair on the shower wall Overall, a decent experience The noise from the city at night can get bothersome, but it is a city so it was expected Location is great Walking distance to many restaurants, bars and some attractions

This hotel is exactly what I expect from the brand Great service and they worked hard to get us a check in early because we had a wedding that day Rooms were clean and exactly what we wanted

Breakfast hands down great for complimentary breakfast The morning service worker was extremely friendly Loved the add ons for the waffles The pool was clean and I really loved the late hours Beds were comfortable, not the best but definitely not horrible Accessible to anything we wanted However, true to almost every Hilton experience we didn’t get our complimentary drinks and snacks as gold members 🙁 Truthfully, that’s the only negative I have Will return and recommend 👌

A B

This is by far one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at with my dog The rooms are spacious and clean The breakfast was a real breakfast with staff constantly refreshing the stock and making sure everything is clean

Housekeeping was courteous 10/10 would recommend It’s not only off the hwy and easy to find but its close to tons of stuff with a walking path nearby

Damian Kong

This was a very good Hampton Inn! Hotel lobby area was clean and spacious The hotel room was very clean and met my expectations! Front desk staff was superb, especially Tanisha! Their system went down and she worked tirelessly to get each guest checked in as fast as possible Thank you Tanisha for the awesome service, definitely would return to this Hampton Inn!

Jorge Rios

My family and I were in town for a baseball game We booked 3 rooms, but my wife and I arrived first The gentlemen at guest service center checked us in, they were very friendly but they told us we had to pay for all 3 rooms, plus the $20 refundable damage room deposit for each room

We asked why and if we could just pay for our room, but we were told no, because the original credit card that was initially used to reserve the rooms could not be billedSo we paid the charges as we were tired and just wanted to rest after a 400 mile drive Then when my brother-in-law arrived he asked them why the policy change? Since they previously stayed here and had always been allowed to pay each individual room When they gave him an answer, they accused us of never asking to only pay for our roomThe following morning, I went to the guest service center and I asked the front desk to please send extra pillows to my room as I have a bad back and had a terrible time sleeping I was told they would send them upMy wife and I went out to a baseball game that was moved from sn afternoon game to a late 7pm game Needless to say, we were gone a majority of the day Later that evening we returned about 10:30p – 11:00p and our room had not only not been cleaned, but our pillows were no where to be foundI phoned the front desk, pleaded with them I was offered an apology for the mishap and was told they would send the pillows up immediately We waited until after midnight and the request for the extra pillows never arrivedMy family and I will not be returning

Heather Franklin

The staff was friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was great The room sucked tho The a/c unit wasnt functioning

They had adjoining doors to the rooms and we could hear the tv and conversation from the room next door The entry door to the room was raised from the floor about an inch so the light and noise from hallway drifted in The view from the 6 fl offered an abandoned lot with tons of graffiti and when pulling in to the hotel entrance there is an abandoned house on the corner On the positive side the location was great for enjoying the aquarium I would not stay here again

Gina Mathews

Arrived early and went inside just to see what there was to do in the area before check-in Well, I was told there was one room ready and I could check in The check in person did not tell me they were charging me

I saw the charge on my bank account after I returned home So much for thinking she was just being nice Room was clean, bed was comfy Breakfast was just ok

Everything about this place was fantastic! The bed was so soft I actually woke up with no back pain, the 2 person spa tub was amazing, the grounds are absolutely gorgeous, I could go on and on And Leanne (the lady who runs the BnB) was the best host She was only a text away and she responded within a minute

She went above and beyond to make her guests happy And she’s a great cook, because the breakfast we ordered was delicious! And we can forget the resident kitty, who was also very friendly and sweet We will definitely be going back!

Tara Lane

I would like to express how breathtaking this visit was Although we weren’t on vacation or there for an exciting event, it was surprising and tucked away yet comforting and relaxing Just to explain my great aunt Janet Bell ( forever in my heart) passed away and she was just a blessed woman filled with the love of Jesus and she chose this place to have a meal after her burial do the family could celebrate her life! And that we did! As we walked from the convent parking to the small walkway it let you down a curving walk way of cooling water features and comfortable seating areas with fireplaces to a small yet elegant hall with large round tables for the family to be seating and enjoy good company and conversation

Adjacent to the seating area was a fully usable kitchen that was set with the food the family provided in buffet style for efficient time frame as we were all hot, tired, and grieving As you can imagine our thoughts were all over the place and it was a nice side thought to take away from the reality of our loss Thanks to family and my Aunt it was a great choice And to the business for opening and maintaining such a nice property

Kelley Carameli

Another great stay at the Weller Haus in Newport! High-quality stay from the amazing breakfast delivered to room, to the deep whirlpool tub (in the Margaret’s Porch Suite), and the extra amenities – room robes, common room w/ snacks, and lovely garden in-prep for Spring Quiet street, good parking, easy process Looking forward to another visit in the future – our “go to” place when in Cincinnati/KY Bourbon Trail

ryan Spayde

So courtyards have been historically hit or miss for me This experience was definitely a miss in my book This hotel was well cheaper than the other options in the area but you definitely paid for what you got

Everything technically worked but the bathroom was stained from the shower to the toilet There was also some kind of stain or paint all over the curtains and stains on the tablesHowever regardless of the rest of the rooms and the potential for cleaner or better kept rooms the number one reason you should avoid at least half of this hotel is This hotel practically sits on the highway You hear every braking trucker, every motorcycle or loud car exhaustStaff was very friendly and were available but there was an overly casual atmosphere with how they handled themselves Any time you ordered from the Bistro the dude was in the lobby on a laptop or lounging chit chatting to other guestsI would recommend you avoid this location if you care to have a restful uninterrupted night of rest Definitely getting added to the corporate do not travel listing

Brianna O’Daniel

My husband and I stayed here while in the area for a softball tournament this past weekend and we were overall pleased! The room was clean (aside from the shower floor) and included a microwave and fridge which was super helpful The front desk had a bag of extra towels handy for anyone who needed them which was great The location is nice and quiet and conveniently located near the Florence Mall and restaurants

Breakfast was not included but we didn’t really have time to sit and eat anyway, but just be aware of that when booking We would definitely stay here again!

Monica Gende

I did not heed the warnings from previous reviews because it’s a Marriott, it can’t be that bad! Spoiler alert…it is Some sort of weird black/moldy spots all over the blinds, lights out in the hallways, showers/bathrooms that aren’t well cleaned, linens that look very “well used”, and can’t even get fresh towels brought to the room? What’s the point of offering “service requests” on the app when after 2 hours you call the front ask ask about it and they say “you have to come get them” The walls are paper thin, so you hear almost everything happening beside you, upstairs, and in the hall ways

We didn’t have any issues with the sound of traffic because the room fan is loud enough to cover it up Bathrooms were just gross, and there was hair on the wall and the toilet seat when we arrived Everything seemed dingy and neglected, far from Marriott standards This is not a location I’ll stay at again Red Roof Inn offers the same quality for half the price

This is a very special boutique hotel They did an excellent job modernizing a very cool building High end amenities and great restaurant and bar

All the staff is friendly and is very hospitable I also like that the hotel is very cutting edge with their technology and there are little extras hidden everywhere You will not be disappointed

Hotel was very nice, clean and perfect for wedding weekend, but the STAFF was absolutely amazing Every need anticipated, questions answered politely and professionally, easy to find if needed Front desk staff was great, especially Cassandra! Rehearsal dinner held here also, and banquet leader, Zach was outstanding

Cannot tell you how pleased we were with everything!

Love the modern look, no dark and gloom here We had a little trouble checking in but the manager fixed everything right away Very disappointed with the pool Don’t think it’s been cleaned in months Algae everywhere in the pool Room was clean , stocked and very nice and spacious We woke to a large mess in the hallway that morning After bringing to staff attention at the desk they cleaned right away Would definitely come back again

Couldn’t say enough about The Clifton House Nancy is a great host and breakfast was excellent Check-in was simple and our room was beautiful

We were able to relax over the weekend and just take a break from everything that is going on in the world right now The location of the Clifton House is great with restaurants and stores a short walk away Highly recommend staying there if you are in Cincinnati

James Patton

Our stay at Clifton House was simply outstanding by any measurement We were allowed to check in early and we were gleefully welcomed by the greatest host this side of the Mason/Dixon line We chose the Cottage and couldn’t have made a better selection

Our breakfasts were spectacularly presented with the taste to match Nancy was absolutely fantastic! An awesome storyteller and a wealth of very specific information about Cincinnati proper I would certainly recommend Clifton House to those seeking the best in bed & breakfast We will definitely return in the not so distant future

This was the best hotel stay I have had anywhere post covid Staff was friendly and helpful Room was spotless

Extremely quiet with no noise from other rooms being heard It has a very convenient location which worked well for the convention I was attending at Duke Energy Station Convenient parking Valet staff was very courteous to point out the closest parking garage when I stated I wanted to park myself The pillows and beds were so comfortable Thank you Hyatt Cincinnati for providing such a comfortable place to stay

– Guerrero

Our stay was great! Hotel looked great I didn’t see past Lobby and room since we got there late in the day Room was so clean Hotel was in a great location

We were able to walk downtown for food We got a parking card that was later validated and parking was free This hotel was not far from Creation Museum we had visited earlier in the day

Stay: June 16-18thReason: ConferenceExperience: Overall, my stay was positive and enjoyable My room was comfortable and clean (but the bed doesn’t face the TV?) I had a great view of the fireworks at the Great American Ballpark! However, my check in experience was frustrating

I booked a room block with the conference I was attending which was a king room I was put in a double queen on the top floor I called down to the desk to ask if I could be placed in the correct room and they accommodated my request I hauled my luggage back downstairs to pick up keys to my new room, and once I got to the room the keys didn’t work I had to haul my luggage back down to the desk again to get new keys and finally was able to get into my room I dined at the breakfast buffet prior to checking out and overall the food was okay The bacon was pretty salty but everything else was tasty I do want to warn you that you will have to park across the street in the garage (it cost me $48 by the time I left on Saturday) and there is no assistance to transport your luggage, so prepare yourself!

We absolutely loved all the art throughout the hotel Perhaps they will add more art to the second level

We rented the deluxe king and the room was clean and cozy The bathroom tiles in the shower were a very nice touch The restaurant Metropole, which is with in the hotel, was absolutely delicious We stayed during the week of Christmas, we were able to attend an indoor light show within walking distance of the hotel I would highly recommend this hotel

Jess Duffy

Honestly, had a rough experience and did get the support from the staff we’d hoped forFirst off, we booked a stay on a date that specifically could accommodate a momma to be massage After several emails confirming our date/stay would work with a spa service

we got a phone call less than an hour before heading up to the massage There was no availability to rebook us before we leftIt’s of course understandable that someone gets sick or calls off but what was very disappointing was the staff did not try to apologize for the mishap and no one acknowledged how incredibly last minute the cancellation happenedI tried talking to the front desk and was absolutely brushed off and my emails were ignored It definitely did not feel the experience I paid forAlso, I am aware this is petty but the front desk told us there was complimentary breakfast from 7-10 We were downstairs by 9 and saw everything gone When I asked the desk they said they wouldn’t be refilling it and the restaurant wouldn’t open until dinnerThe hotel made us feel like we were not guests but quite frankly a burden to everyone working!

Daniel McGee

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very nice boutique hotel and potentially the best in downtown Cincinnati, but our most recent stay left much to be desired We booked a corner room for a parents night out and were surprised to find one of the bathroom sinks not functional (luckily there were two) and only 1 set of towels The hotel bar was nice but the drinks were a tad bit on the strong side

The toiletries are high end except for the hand soap that leaves a strange film on your skin Lastly, the bathroom was nice, but by no means luxurious which is what I expect for a $400+ room We may stay here again but mainly due to the lack of other options in such a great location
