We stayed here so we could enjoy a wedding. Great view of fountain square. Easy to walk to the nightlife. Some of the lobby carpeting could be restretched. We enjoyed a late Sunday afternoon check out as well. Non valet parking in a garage without too many signs to get to the lobby. They have a number of packages in...

The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. Check in was quick & easy. Pool & jacuzzi on 17th floor was cool. We had a great view from our room but this Westin seems more for business travelers. The location is within walking distance to several restaurants and the skywalk was nice because it was very cold when we stayed. The...

I have stayed a few times over the years and this last was the best. The SPG floor room was clean with calm but stylish design and in perfect repair. We requested and got a view of Fountain Square, even though staying on Cash and Points on a very busy night. Fountain Square was noisy quite late on and you...

I stayed at the Westin for a conference that was being hosted in the hotel and I had a good stay there. The staff was friendly, check in was easy, and my room was clean, warm, and well maintained. A lot of hotels have a lot of noise transfer from other rooms, but I didn't have that problem here. The...

The hotel is everythinf you would expect for a decent business hotel from starwood- 24 hr gym to help combat jetlag, good wifi/internet connection, walking distance to shopping malls when you need to make emergency shopping trips (Macy's and Saks 5th are less than 2 minutes' walk away) and of course the ultra comfy dreambed. To get a good view...

We stayed here two nights. Paid a little extra to have a view of the square. It was worth it, my kids and dog loved watching the ice skaters down on the square. I was concerned about not being able to find a patch of grass for my dog to go on but just out the front doors of hotel...

What you would expect of Westin. Great location, we had a suite and the room was nice with nice view." Of the ice-skating ring. Pool area was definitely lacking changing rooms! Hotel restaurant was not open(5 pm).

I have stayed here every week for the past few months. It is just okay, nothing special. The staff is generally nice until you have a problem. If you have an issue they are not helpful. The hotel valet staff are great and go above and beyond. However, most of the outsourced valet staff are rude.The facilities are old and...

As a Cincinnati native, I have never had the opportunity to stay at The Westin until this weekend. I knew the location was the best in downtown, overlooking Fountain Square and close to many attractions. Our room was spacious and clean although it smelled a little stale when we first checked in, almost like someone had smoked in there previously....
