Beautiful historic hotel in downtown Cincinnati

5 out of 5

Pros: Clean, quiet, large room; excellent bedding. Wonderful views. The hotel breakfast was a bit expensive, but worth every penny.
Cons: Bathroom was small, as might be expected for a hotel of this vintage.
Location: Downtown location was excellent for visiting museums. Plenty of good restaurants were located nearby. We especially enjoyed the Maplewood Kitchen.
We spent one night on our way to Columbus for a wedding. Parking ($17) was located in a structure next to the hotel, with direct access. It is a beautiful and historic site. The interior decoration is magnificent. We had a drink at the bar (the restaurant was, unfortunately, closed) and listened to live jazz before going to dinner. The waitress kindly gave us an extensive description of local places to eat. Overall, I was extremely impressed. This is a true Hilton, in the best sense. We definitely plan to visit again.

Great old classy hotel and a very nice stay. Valet parking was a mess with so much happening at once but it all worked out because of the super staff.

Great location (near shopping and great restaurants), but the rooms need some updating. The staff is mostly friendly, but could be nicer.

Pros: good location
Cons: bathroom
Location: We walked to the football game and most rest and bars were close by.
Our room was nice and the hotel is in a good location but the bathroom was old school. very small with a small tub shower combo... the sink was also oldschool.... lets get with it and install a nice shower, and give your clients some counter space.
