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

Beonca Ramirez

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

Tara Little

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

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

This hotel is a quick 6 minute shuttle ride from the airport We did need to call to request the shuttle, the people we spoke with were helpful and friendly The front desk staff made check in quick and easy, which I was so grateful for having arrived at 1 am

They do have a small selection of food/drinks/necessities available in the lobby for purchase Thats always helpful during travel The room was clean and large, and had all the basics you’d expect as far as amenities My absolute only issue was that the door to the room closes so slow behind you As a woman, I’d feel much safer being able to close the door quickly behind me once I enter the room Otherwise, everything exceeded expectations and I had a lovely stay! Oh, and no complimentary breakfast, in case that’s important to your choice in stay

D Jordan

What a nice stay! Great customer service, pre-trip and overall The Marriott Bonvoy Member “Spin The Wheel” at check-in was a real treat I felt welcomed and appreciated

Really nice hotel, right off the highway, and close to shopping and dining The room was clean and comfortable and with a nice view of a the green landscape with a balcony to boot We really enjoyed it Definitely will recommend and will stay again! Special thanks to Debbie for extending friendly customer service with a smile

Laura B

Check in was easy, room was clean, love the convenience of the shuttle to the airport The lady who ran the shuttle dropped me off and picked me up from the airport She was a pleasure to speak to and was on time getting me to and from the airport

Traveling is always stressful but I have to say that the courtyard Marriott here came through and made it a pleasant experience! Will definitely be returning for my next flights out of Cincy

Stopped on our way from NY to Tennessee to get a few hours rest The staff was AMAZING from the minute we checked in until we checked out Beds were comfy, room was clean & perfectly located for us to take our little dog outside

Highly recommend & if we ever need to stop for some rest again while traveling through Ohio, hands down we will stay at the Country Inn & Suites!

Sara Rawls

Stayed at the Hotel for a business event When I checked in I went to hand the front desk my tax exempt form and the gentleman told me they did not need a copy of it I then went to my room and when I went to use the restroom there was a massive water damage leak that look like it was about to burst in any minute

The rooms are extremely small and definitely did not have any renovations done on them when the building was updated As well I was on the first floor where someone could have walked up to my window and seen completely in my room if the blinds weren’t kept shut When I went to check out, they had not removed the taxes I then went and gave them another tax exempt form and ask them to email me the updated receipt When I received the email they had charged me twice for state tax instead of removing it I then had to return to the hotel after my event and wait an hour for them to get my receipt correct While I understand it was not one soul person, and some situations cannot be controlled, this was not the full case with everything that happened to me Especially for not having any real breakfast except for grab and go items, this hotel is not worth the money or the difficulties

Tori Foltz

The hotel was incredibly easy to find from the interstate, and we weren’t expecting a Waffle House in the same parking lot so that was an added bonus Came up last weekend for a concert and only stayed for one night and got a late checkoutThe people working check-in Saturday were doing an awesome job despite being busy

We didn’t get up in time for breakfast, but right now it’s grab and go because they are short staffed (which I can completely understand!) so just keep that in mind when you’re looking to book

Katie Larson

Overall I had a great stay here, it was a last minute booking near the airport for a night as my flight got cancelled I gave their front desk a call to see about the airport shuttle and they came and got me immediately, which I really appreciated, being stranded at the airport otherwise Everyone working was wonderful

Only issue was a big crowd of parents and kids that used all the public spaces basically all night and were very loud in the hallways, constantly knocking on doors and yelling I was hoping to use the pool, but really couldn’t And there looked to be a tray with a used coffee filter just sitting on the TV stand in my room But overall for what the hotel has the power to change, it was a great stay

Dan Thompson

GREAT HOTEL EXPERIENCE!!! I highly recommend this hotel! We wanted to stay at a nicer hotel that had a nice pool area, and this one even had a hottub! The kids looked forward to the pool every single night, and they leave their pool area open til 11:00PM! AWESOME! Their breakfasts were great, with a lot of variety and options! There were no loud noises during the night and we never heard our neighbors being loud at all On our last night we stayed here, some dumb kid had “an accident” in the pool, and so, in accordance with health department requirements they had to stick chemicals into the pool and shut it down for 24 hours When we got down the elevators and saw the CLOSED sign our kids were BUMMED!!! 🙄🙄🙄 We had started going back up the elevator to our room, but then the desk worker came up to the elevator doors and informed us that the hotel right next door was also their sister hotel and that if we wanted to, we could walk over there and use their pool

Which we all did, and the kiddos all had a blast on their last night! We REALLY REALLY appreciated them doing that for us Was very nice 😊😊👍👍

Nicole Auger

This is a must stay if you are searching in the northern Kentucky area just over the Ohio border My Family of 4 went on an over night business trip and we 100% picked this hotel because of the HOT TUB! That is right, a pool and hot tub and that area of the hotel is available until 11pm! This is one of the only hotels with a hot tub with in I would guess a 30min to one hour radius (believe me I have already done the research for you!) The hot breakfast offered in the morning was great, the decor and cleanliness is top notch, there are many other amenities including an outside patio and fireplace and the staff were nice! This hotel is worth the price with 2 thumbs up and I will definitely be back if I stay in the area

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

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 travel extensively for work I stayed a week and needed to extend my stay Originally was scheduled to check out on a Tuesday

I went to the front desk on the Sunday before to extend my trip The clerk made a note and said we will take care of it Then on Tuesday, I received a receipt for my stay I immediately went to the front desk to confirm that I was extending my stay The clerk said sure, then made a new reservation on the computer but was going to charge me an extra 100 dollars on night then an extra 200 dollars for the second They said it was an overbooked fee That was the exact reason I tried to confirm my extension earlier I wanted to speak with the manager and left several notes to have her call me Since I work 12 hour shift when I am on the road, I do not have time during normal businesses hours to come in Never received a response Tried calling IHG and was on hold for over 25 min I ended up having to pay for the first night because I was busy with work then had to pack all my things and change hotel for the second night The “award winning” part of this hotel is when it was built new and not for customer service Gives IHG a very bad name and I will make an effort to not stay at IHG nor this hotel again If you travel for business, beware

Ally Armacost

The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful Our room was perfectly clean (I checked down to the mattress cover and everything was fresh!) The location is also very conveniently located with easy access to Cincinnati or the nearby mall area with plenty of food options

Random, but I LOVED the pillows on our bed I genuinely want one for myself As a stomach sleeper, most pillows are too stiff and I end up sleeping without one But the pillows at this Best Western were so soft and fluffy Between the pillows and the ultra-comfy mattress, I slept like a baby

Sam Cooper

The room was clean, as well as the hotel The food was either all empty or cold The first morning we had to ask for it to be refilled and waited about 25 minutes

The second morning the food was all cold and some of it was empty again No milk or fruit left Nothing was refilled eitherThe hot tub in pictures is not open currently The pool was nice and clean!If you are coming for the breakfast then I’d go somewhere else

Rebecca Kosierowski

We showed up without a reservation, and though the parking lot was pretty full, they had a queen-bed room available for my husband and myself, and the young man at the counter was polite It was located on the second floor behind the elevator, which concerned us at first, but we didn’t hear anything from the elevator when in the room It was slightly wet-dog smelling when we first went in, but after running the AC/fan unit for a little bit, it cleared (all the bedding and towels smelled clean, and even the floor smelled fine, so maybe it just hadn’t been used lately)

The mattress wasn’t comfortable to us (and made foam creaks/squeaks when either of us moved), but it was quite soft, and at home, we prefer to sleep on a very firm futon on the floor When we woke during the early morning (husband had had surgery and needed a pain pill), we heard a couple planes land a few minutes apart, but they weren’t often or too loud, so we easily fell back to sleep and slept through The breakfast was tasty (the eggs and sausage better than the powdered and seasonless ones, respectively, that we had just had at the Hampton the day before)

Feedback From Real Customers


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

Remember to use Hᴏᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a room This website will compare thousands of booking websites and normally will have prices much cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This hotel is the best rated in this area

I have been staying here for years If you stay for a few nights you won’t be disappointedNice, clean hotel It’s located conveniently by downtown The parking garage attached to the hotel is convenient The staff was friendly and the courtyard area is a nice place to relax with friends and family If you’re looking for a place to stay in the Cincinnati area, I recommend you stay here

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

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

Do not stay here:Parking is a nightmareStaff is rude and not helpful at allEntrance on Fifth street is closed early no clear signsHotel offers no breakfast

They don’t offer cleaning everydayNo laundry bags in the room No plastic bags at allEven cheap hotels give you a plastic bag for your dirty laundry Not this hotelNot sure how can they call themselves a 4 star hotelYou expect more from a WestinBathroom is old and needs fixing Mirror is falling apartSmall fridge made a screeching noise and had to be disconnectedNo ice buckets in the roomJust overall an awful experience This hotel has seen better days

Holly French

First off, we booked here mostly due to the pictures of an amazing pool that my daughter was excited about only to arrive and find out it was not open This was not listed anywhere on their website When we arrived to the room it was 80°, we turned the temp down, went to dinner and hours later it was still 78°

We had someone come “fix” it An hour later it was still the same temperature We called down and got a new room The same thing proceeded with this room We moved rooms for a 3rd time (in the middle of the night, having to wake our one year old up each time to transfer our belongings) only to end up in yet another hot room that would not cool off By this point we were all beyond exhausted and just over it We all woke up drenched in sweat early the next morning The stay was so awful we cut our trip early and canceled our next night and decided to go home I have traveled a lot and this was by far the worst experience I have ever had If you don’t mind expecting to hang out in an empty pool and sleeping in a sauna, this is the place for you Otherwise, rethink your decision to stay here

Hotel isn’t bad Nice views, rooms are bigService had room for improvement

Calling the hotel so I can release a package a friend is picking up while I’m at work The automated robot isn’t very helpful, when I gave my cell phone number that my platinum bonvoy account is attached to it then asked for my last name Majority of people can’t pronounce my lastSimply put the Marriott robot is horrible and bad After calling two more times I got the front desk, Alicia who was amazing at helping me

Great hotel, nice rooms Our check in/out was so easy Great place for a conference, lots of space, rooms, hallways and ballrooms

They have a really nice indoor pool so bring your swim suit!I took a star because it was incredibly hot in the hallways and they have low ceilings in the hall The low ceilings in the hallway made me feel claustrophobicWe ate and got drinks in the restaurant $35 for 2 Malibu breezes, bbq sliders and onion rings The food was really good after a long day of travel

Phillip Adcock

The staff were exceptional Both front desk and restaurant Rooms were very clean and modern

No issues on that end The pool and hot tub the biggest reasons we chose to stay at this hotel over the hotel our group stayed in was a major let down The indoor pool was ice cold It literally felt like someone had dumped buckets upon buckets upon buckets of ice into the pool, it was seriously that cold The hot tub was a nice toasty 104 degrees However there was no jet action, turning the nob to activate jet timer didn’t work no matter how many times you tried The only circulation of water was the outlet and inlet that just circulate the water enough to keep it warm The sauna which was a feature I was personally super excited to use was non functional Note not noting this anywhere, the door nob was simply removed and the door was screwed to it’s frame The interior of the hot tub itself had some very sharp concrete edges from the concrete chipping away over time So I’d very much say that side of the pool area was in need of renovationThe most disappointing part was that check-in staff didn’t advise of the lack of sauna amenity or that the hot tub didn’t have operational jets even though it was still open for use

I stayed one night before an early flight and paid to leave my vehicle parked in the extended stay parking until my return flight one week later The shuttle picked me up at the airport upon my return and drove me to my car When I started the vehicle to leave, it was loud and roaring

I drove to the nearest Service center and they informed me the catalytic converter had been cut off of it They said the vehicle would have had to have been jacked up in order for someone to access it the way they did and make such a clean cut When I contacted the hotel, the lady told me there had been a lot of that happening at their lot, but they thought the police had caught who it was because they hadn’t had another case reported in about a month She said they did have a security guard that patrolled the parking lot, but they had no cameras Obviously the security is lacking if someone is able to jack a vehicle up in the middle of the parking lot and do this She told me the main manager to contact was not in until the next week I left a voicemail and he returned my call the next week Basically said sorry nothing we can do Did not offer to even refund the parking fee paid for “secure parking” I had to file a police report, and the officer told me that they have had numerous cases reported of this happening at this hotel I wonder why they won’t put cameras in with this happening multiple times? I’ve had to file a claim with my insurance for repair costs, not to mention the 2-4 week wait quoted for the parts due to shortages I will NEVER stay here again and don’t recommend it to anyone! Be aware!

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
