We didn't have reservations so when I contacted the lobby, I was met by Roy. Very polite and professional. He got us into a nice remodeled room (construction is ongoing) a little earlier than normal.

I will definitely choose H.I. Riverfront as my go to for the Cincinnati area. The location is great for nightlife, sporting events or conventions in Kentucky or Cincinnati. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean and nice.

Our room was very spacious and immaculate. The rooms were well appointed but the carpet in the hallway, while in good shape, was not my taste. The elevators were a little crowded and slow but otherwise our stay was very pleasant with a very accommodating staff. That being said, we will definitely stay there again.

In reality, all you can see is the back side of the levee along the Ohio River. Hotel is nice but don't fall for the "view"!!! Location was "ok", but the price was higher...

This a pretty typical Inn. The rooms are large and comfortable. It is in a quiet location. They serve a hot breakfast that is fine. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is that they are renovating and things are kind of hectic.
