Our daughter’s wedding was in Cincinnati and we had a wedding block. The hotel staff were very accommodating, helpful and friendly! The front desk people especially Jamal were welcoming and very helpful. We enjoyed staying at the Kinley in Cincinnati!!

Hotel's Favourite
In town for an FC Cincinnati match. Hotel is convenient location for catching the Cincinnati Bell Connector, the free transit system that runs a loop around downtown. We were upgraded to a small suite on the top floor and the room was great! Very comfortable bed, big walk-in shower and a little sofa/sitting area. Only downside was the water pressure in the shower varied quite a bit, at times reduced to a slow drip. But other than that, it is a great property and we will definitely stay again when we come back to Cincy - which is a really fun city!

Thank you for this feedback! We love our little corner of this town and the convenience our location affords our guests. We will review the water pressure concern as that certainly should not occur. Feel free to email us at guestservices@kinleycincinnati.com so we can ensure that room has been addressed! You are appreciated.

We had a lovely stay at the Kinley. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Jamal welcomed us each morning with a great smile and kind words and Grant (bartender) was very knowledgeable about the area and made delicious cocktails. We will return. 👍🏼💜

We were in town for a business trip and this was the perfect spot for us. Very classy and professional looking. Great for socializing and having a few drinks. The food and drinks were delicious and the price was great as well. To top it off, Journi and Jamal at the front desk made our stay even better. Not only that, everyone else that we encountered on the team was wonderful and sweet too. I would highly recommend staying here for business or leisure.

/rooms were very clean - big bathroom - itsy bitsy room with a big bed.We had space to hang clothes but NO DRAWERS so we lived out of suitcase. WE had a bed to sit on. SO it looked nice but was not comfortable. Seriously at 250.00 a night (we were in a block so got a discount supposedly). Basically little food options. we each had a hamburger and we had one drink and a side of cauliflower and it was 75+tip. I know hotels overcharge but this was like a little cafe not a real restaurant (BTW i didn't want a hamburger bit other options worse) . Breakfast even worse. The Coffee was like drinking paint. Marriott seriously you need to do better . And yes i am a Marriott card holder and usually stay at Marriott .

Elaine, I'm sorry to hear you did not have the ideal experience here at The Kinley Cincinnati. The good news is, we are actively working to expand our Food and Beverage offerings! In the coming months we will be offering a more traditional breakfast, expanded lunch/dinner menus, and additional hours of operation. We feel very strongly that our style, incredible service, and in-house amenities will impress our guests for years to come. It is my hope that you will afford us another opportunity to show you the true Kinley experience next time you are in town. Thank you for your time and see you soon.

The Kinley Hotel is decorated with a current look and feel. The staff is very nice and the location is perfect for dining touring or just a weekend stay in Cincinnati. I would strongly recommend the Kinley for a weekend getaway for a business trip.

Galen and his team did an excellent job managing our large group/block. From start to finish, no ask was too great. From constantly changing arrival and departure dates, to the hospitality shown to ur group throughout the property, the Kinley went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of! The location was central to everything we needed access to; including dining and entertainment options. Valet (Jeremy and his team) were prompt and courteous, always greeting and welcoming, and always hustling to pick up our vehicles. The restaurant, Khora, had unique and tasty offerings and I personally dined there multiple times in my 10+ night stay. (The smoked beef carpaccio was my favorite!) Sterling made the bar our go to gathering place for pre and post evening cocktails and was always a delight. The rooms are clean and modern and we will definitely make our way back to the Kinley!

Traveled from North Carolina and used Marriott Bon Voy and wanted to try a different hotel in Cincinnati. Came in for opening game for the Bengals season. Jaylin, Julie were great at front desk. They made some nice recommendations for breakfast on our travel day after check out. The room was well appointed and cozy. The breaker in the bathroom did trip plugging in the provided hairdryer. The highlight was the bar area where Sterling and Grant were phenomenal. A great experience for light dining and for drinks, top notch not just getting something to drink and real experience. Most bar areas and hotels have televisions but I think a television with sports would take away from the ambience of this area this area is clearly one to unwind unplug and reset, which is how the space feels and how it is appointed wonderfully. To have a TV blaring in this area in this quaint little boutique hotel would take away from that, this is not a sports bar. The housekeeping was a little slow at times to provide extra towels but did come through in the end. The valet was great fantastic job. So overall we will come back in two weeks for the next game and stay here, if I could give a 4.5 out of five I would. Definitely a nice find in a little lower price point than the Lytle Park which is a nice option, If one does not want to spend as much per night.

The Kinley is great. We loved the bar, the redone rooms are lovely and our view was great. Jamal was super hospitable and we will be back. We were able to walk to the practice fields, dinner and Findlay market.
