Such nice staff! We had an issue with our other hotel and he got us in as quick as he could so that we could shower, only a $25 fee for early check in which was definitely worth it The history in this bed and breakfast made it like an attraction and a place to stay all in one The staff is very helpful and willing to tell you all about the history

Highly recommend!

S Lyons

While visiting Cincinnati for a reunion weekend, Six Acres Bed-and-Breakfast provided a welcome sanctuary! The rooms were expansive, beautifully decorated, comfortable and relaxing The breakfast was exceptional and quite filling, and our host was congenial, knowledgeable and readily available for any need We soaked up the ambience and enjoyed the historical aspect of the estate and its relationship to the Underground Railroad

We are already planning our next trip to include a longer stay and more family members! Thank you to Kristen and Charles for an amazing experience!

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

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

Patrick Madden

This is a beautiful and modern hotel that is ruined by it’s operations being woefully understaffed Upon arrival I waited nearly 15 minutes to check in because the receptionist was nowhere to be found The bistro is not a viable option for those hoping for a quick breakfast; my basic order of scrambled eggs and toast took quite literally 45 minutes to come out of the kitchen despite there being only 3-4 other guests in the restaurant

The only part of the hotel that was appropriately staffed was the valet, run by an outside company, who was quick to retrieve my vehicle upon requestOther than the miserable operational issues, the rooms here are beautifully decorated, well cleaned, and quiet I had a comfortable stay

Ron M

Check in took a little longer than what I usually expect but I believe the young lady was fairly new The room looked very nice however it really wasn’t that clean, the windows were dirty, the baseboards looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in months and there was hair and dust on the floors close to the walls Then there’s the blinds they were power open/close however only half of them worked or got stuck in the track

It would have been a bigger issue for us if we were there during the week because our room was directly across from an office building, would have made for an odd wake up had it not been the weekend

Gross Family

Check-in was great, Sommer was very busy at the desk alone but did a great job getting us checked in quickly Jack in the valet was very helpful- we did not care for the tipping process as there was a $3 fee to leave a $10 tip The reason for 3 stars is because we were not informed the Air Conditioning in our room did not work and instead had a box fan

We woke up to the room at 76 degrees

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

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

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

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 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

Erika Jones

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!

Elle Riehle

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

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

Beautiful historic hotel, impeccable attention to detail, spacious rooms and luxurious retreat!

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 👌


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!

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

We enjoyed their fresh breakfast and delicious made to order omelets with an amazing view of the River Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, TVs were nice This will be the only place we stay when we’re in town from here on out! Thanks to everyone who made our stay so enjoyable

I’ve never stayed at a hotel with such a friendly staff The lady whose in charge of breakfast has an outstanding personality She greeted everyone who came down & made small talk with the kids

I wish I would of caught her name so I could of gave her a personal complement on here I stayed Friday 7/8/22 and she was the younger black lady in charge of breakfast on 7/9/22 Please let her know she’s doing a great job! Also, the 2 gentleman that were working that morning as well Thanks for a great stay and having such an outstanding crew!The Jarrett’s

Great stay Short staffed, but the staff that were working double shifts, were friendly, helpful and happy Housekeeping was not a highlight

I had to request toilet paper and towels on check in because there wasn’t any in the room The room itself was very clean though I stay at this location everytime I come into town, will be back again

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

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

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!

Had an excellent experience staying at the Symphony last night Melissa and the team are so kind and accommodating, we felt right at home The restaurant and hotel rooms are very clean and decorated tastefully for the old fashioned symphonic theme

The breakfast on Saturday morning was really good – I highly recommend the blueberry pancakes (made to order from scratch) We will definitely be back!

Leigh Koetsch

Adorable, well-run hotel full of character! The room was adorable, the staff was incredibly nice and accommodating, and the food was excellent The bed was comfy, parking is complimentary, as is breakfast and in room snacks It was within walking distance of Memorial Hall (3 minute walk if that) and lots of great restaurants plus Washington Park

The next time we have plans in OTR, we will definitely be staying at the Symphony again

Jared Bickford

Wow, I don’t know another word to use here I was truly blown away by this place, and its staff Ill start with the staff

Melissa was so kind and accommodating that it restored a bit of faith in humanity for me She made my stay so comfortable, I felt like I had stayed there a hundred times before, despite this being my first Thank you Melissa! The accommodations, well, equally as awesome The building is really, really, fabulous and the vibe is off the charts The room was spacious and well appointed Last, but certainly not least, the parking Rarely am I even content with the parking situation when I stay places, as I am one of those crazy people who actually care about their vehicle At the Symphony, I can tell you, for the first time in my life, I was happy about it! They have a private garage with spacious parking spots around the corner It is secure, and they give you a fob to come and go as you please Thank you so much!!!I was in town for a concert, and bottom line, I will be watching the local music scene for an excuse to come back!!! Another positive of the hotel is that it is within walking distance of several venues, and numerous wonderful eateries I hope to see you again soon!!!!!
