Expected More from a "Big City" Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 25, 2014

This Hilton is a nice, clean property; it's within walking distance of Paul Brown Stadium (Bengals) and other downtown attractions. The hotel staff is friendly, the rooms are spacious, and clean. The area that this property is lacking is amenities.
After returning from a Sunday Night Football game, my husband and I quickly learned (as we watched other couples struggling with the same issue) that there were no food services. All the restaurants nearby were closed, the hotel bar was closed, pizza delivery would take an hour, so the ONLY option was a turkey sandwich from room service - seriously, that's all they serve after hours. Good thing we weren't vegetarians. I was really shocked that they didn't make special accommodations (beyond turkey sandwiches) for Sundays when the Bengals are in town.

Unique Quality: Caveat on the room: if you're short, be careful with the tubs in the bathroom - they are somewhat higher than standard. I broke my toe climbing in (yes, this sort of thing happens to me) because I underestimated the height :-p
The lobby bar is nice - friendly bartenders; and the Sunday Brunch was excellent.

Incredible Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 11, 2013

This Hotel is not just a National Hitoric Monument. It is a great hotel too!.
It was built in 1930 by the same people who buit the Empire State Building.
Its original Art Deco decoration has been preserved ad gives you the sensation of being inside a Cruise Ship.
The service was very good, but you have the addiotion of having the best restaurand in Cincinnaty and the best service of food and drins in the USA. (really).

I asked for a single queen room which has small but very nice and clean.

I think it is a great relation Price / Benefit.

Unique Quality: Historic Building.
The best food.
Reasonable Prices.
Best location
You are staying in a Monument!

Directions: Down Town

Below Average Overnight Trip

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 14, 2011

The service was average, facilities was clean the room was small and the view were airconditioners. The cost for the amenities is outrageous. The hotel opened in 1931 so they have updated. The bathtub was too high for me to get in and out. I was traveling along the room assigned was back in a connor away from everything and everone. No shuttle service available. When asking about the stores available was made to feel that I was stupid for not knowing. I really don't think I would recommend the hotel to anyone, I know that I will not be staying there again. Why I will not be using this Hotel agin is that I travel alone most of the time and I did not feel safe also felt the price of the room was too high for the services received. Also they need someone to inspect the workmenship before they accept the job. The wall covering and painting was very sloppy. Asfar as the view, I would suggest putting some trees and flowers around the airconditioners so a person does not have to look at machines running.

Unique Quality: Very poor view. Pool closed at 8:30 PM Come on. I know when I come back from eating or attending an event I want to be able to take a swim or use the hot tub.

Netherland Convenience

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 1, 2008

I had a great stay. The rooms are small(since this is an old school hotel), but they are nice.

Take the Tank Bus from the Airport #2X for $1.50 and it stops right next to the hotel. It is safe and convenient bus.

Ther is a full gym(with pool and classes) in the basement.

You have free internet, faxes,etc... if you are a Hilton Honors Member (Just sign up on the spot). Across the street are restaurants, ice skating rink and Nordstrom plus other shops. Wonderful location.

Unique Quality: This is ten minute walk from the Freedom center. www.freedomcenter.org. That alone is worth the trip.... You also have the water and the stadiums closeby

Directions: Downtown

Historic Landmark with Beds!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 17, 2007

I am writing this as I sit at the desk in my very large deluxe room at the Hilton Cincinnati. This is my second stay at this hotel. One thing to note is that they don't seem to have a lot of king beds. Both times I have been given double queens which is fine if you are staying by yourself.

The hotel opened in 1931 and is a National Historic Landmark and charter member of Historic Hotels of America. It features breathtaking French Art Deco. With rare Brazilian rosewood paneling, indirect German silver-nickel light fixtures and soaring ceiling murals, the hotel is one of the world's finest examples of French Art Deco

Unique Quality: The rooms have been updated to include high-speed internet and luxury bedding but the hotel still manages to retain its old world feel. They could not do much to update the bathrooms- so they tend to be tiny compared to newer hotels- but they have new pedastal sinks and tile. Crabtree amenities and a make-up mirror. The 16th floor is the Club floor where you can get coffee and breakfast in the AM or a drink and snacks in the evening. They also have a gym in the lower level which in addition to the latest fitness & aerobic equipment has a lap pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, whirlpool, and aerobic classes.

Directions: 12 miles from the airport ($25 taxi ride). Corner of 5th and Race. Across the street from Saks Fifth Avenue.

Getaway in Cincy

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 2, 2006

Wife and I stayed here for one of our anniversaries (she knows which one because she's in charge of reminding me that I never remember dates). Good shopping located in same complex, great restaurant downstairs. Have to say that the view was probably the worst I've ever experienced in this price range.

The best hotel in downtown.

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Omni/Hilton is has a central location in downtown Cincinnati. Although it is a bit more pricey than other downtown hotels the rooms are worth it and the staff is excellent. It is one block fromt the convention center and the doorman staff can tell you just about anything you would like to know about the city.

Unique Quality: Adjacent to the downtown mall.

Beautifully Restored Hotel

by written on May 30, 2003

It was marvelous. The place is beautiful with an old feel. Almost like the place in "The Shining," but no negatives.

The staff were all friendly and helpful.

The restaurant is beautiful and the food is good. For a longer term stay the menu is a bit limited. Breakfast buffet is also good and relatively reasonbly priced. If you're a HiltonHonors member it may be included--ask for a coupon.


Unique Quality: Can use the fully appointed gym downstairs which also has a sauna and a small pool. There is also a good salon downstairs.

In winter you can stay undercover to walk to a mall and some businesses.

Directions: Town Center

It has recently been remodeled, and the beds are extra comfy with nice, soft sheets.

Unique Quality: The hotel is attached to an office building, and there is a nice gym that hotel guests can use for free.
