Need more sit down restaurants near hotel to choose from besides fast food so that family's can go eat dinner at, that they don't have to drive far or walk to far to get too especially if they are there for Cincinnati children's hospital and have special needs children. It was very simple and easy to get to the hospital...

Thank you for your review and I hope your visit at Children's went well for you. There is a cute German Village just 4-5 blocks away called MainStrasse Village that has multiple sit down restaurants, I apologize if we didn't offer this to you and your family. Sincerely, Beth Wuestefeld

This Hampton has the normal amenities, breakfast, and refrigerator. The inn is old and needs updating. The carpet has seen better days and could stand replacing. Bathe King mattress was softer than I normally find at a Hampton, I like the firmness. There is no shuttle to get you into Ohio if you need access to events across the river....

The hotel was descent, but it was overpriced. The hotels in Cincinnati and the surrounding areas always increase the prices for the Cincinnati Music festival. The overall service was great but the quality of the hotel was average.

We stayed here for our anniversary recently. The building originally housed the Cincinnati Enquirer and has gorgeous detail everywhere you look. Nice breakfast is included - parking is extra. The room was very welcoming and the bed was comfortable. We stayed during the Jazz Fest so the price was much more than it normally would have been. A short walk...
