We did a quick weekend getaway to Cincinnati and stayed here. It was a delightful choice. I am familiar with many of the downtown hotels and I was looking for something modern, clean and comfortable. This hotel fit the bill! We stayed in a corner room and I highly recommend getting one for the beautiful space. The hotel staff was very accommodating and the lobby bar delightful. One tip. They stop serving food at 9 pm not 10 pm on Fridays as advertised. Plan accordingly.

This is a charming boutique hotel. My daughter and I went for the Taylor Swift concert and they had a darling step and repeat set up in the lobby as well as several props for photo ops. The location is fabulous; it feels safe but it is also perfect for walking to many hot spots. The hotel is a charming mix of old school glamour juxtaposed with modern elegance. We were quite fond and will stay again if our travels bring us to town again.

Stayed here for two nights for a business trip. The lobby was clean yet quiet. Ate at the. Resturant for breakfast and the food was good. We stayed in room 306 and would not recommend. We were woken up multiple times each night with loud crashes from outside the window which sounded like large dumpsters being dropped to the ground. It was so bad our last night, when it woke us up at 5:30am we just left the hotel and checked out. It was a pretty bad experience.

Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience with us. We're thrilled to hear that you found our lobby clean and enjoyed the breakfast at our restaurant. We're truly sorry to learn about the disturbances you encountered during your stay, particularly the noise disruptions outside your room. We understand how crucial a restful night's sleep is, especially during a business trip, and we regret that we fell short of providing you with the tranquility you expected. While we strive to ensure a peaceful environment for all our guests, unfortunately, we cannot always control external factors such as urban sounds and downtown noise. However, please know that we do offer amenities such as complimentary earplugs, eye masks, and pillow mist to assist our guests who are sensitive to noise and light disturbances. Your feedback is invaluable to us, and we will certainly look into ways to minimize such disturbances in the future. We hope you'll give us another opportunity to exceed your expectations on your next visit to Cincinnati.

What an adorable hotel! We took a very late night flight into Cincinnati from FL, the flight was a bit rough (bad weather) and then Enterprise screwed up the rental car so we ended up taking an Uber to the hotel. At this point it was well after midnight and we were exhausted and I was completely frustrated. As soon as we arrived, the valet attendant assisted with our luggage and we were greeted by Cora. What a wonderful human being! She was so sweet and accommodating, even offering me a glass of wine (she could see my frustration). We chatted for a bit and she made sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable. Thank you, Cora for being so welcoming and sweet! I highly recommend this hotel. Rooms are comfortable, staff is awesome and the décor is very nice too. Oh, so is the coffee bar. I'd definitely stay here again.

I had a very comfortable experience at the Kinley. The room was spacious, the staff very friendly and helpful, and everything went very smoothly. I only wished I could have had a tea kettle - - I used the coffee-maker as a good substitute. Everything was clean and attractive. About the rates I can't comment, as my employers arranged the stay at their expense. On the eve of my very early-morning departure the bar, quite late in the evening, made a delicious sandwich to go, for a fairly reasonable price. The breakfasts also were very well prepared. I certainly can recommend the Kinley as an attractive place to stay.

My recent stay at the Kinley Hotel in Cincinnati was an absolutely remarkable experience, making it undeniably one of my best hotel visits ever. From the moment I stepped in, I was greeted with warmth and professionalism. The standout of my visit, however, was the exceptional service provided by Larry. His attention to detail, friendly demeanor, and unwavering dedication to guest satisfaction truly set the Kinley Hotel apart. The rooms were impeccably clean, comfortable, and stylishly designed, ensuring a relaxing stay. The hotel’s location is ideal, offering easy access to local attractions and dining. Every aspect of the service was top-notch, from the check-in process to the amenities offered. Larry’s exceptional service played a significant role in enhancing our experience, and because of this, we are already planning our next visit to the Kinley Hotel. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Cincinnati and looking for a memorable stay

Staff was very friendly and room was exceptionally clean. The room was very spacious during my visit beside the view out of the window was not much to look at. The lobby decorations and room furniture are definitely set this hotel apart from the rest in Cincinnati.
