Located adjacent to the Center for Contemporary Art and across the street from the Aronoff Center for the Arts, 21c Cincinnati works to foster the ongoing revival of Downtown Cincinnati and strengthen its role as a cultural destination. Working with the Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC), 21c renovated the former Metropole Hotel and embraced the architecture of the historic landmark to create an exciting new space for guests to experience genuine hospitality, view cutting edge contemporary art, and enjoy culinary experiences that celebrates the region's sustainable producers. The world has changed over the last several months and here at 21c, we have made some changes too. One thing remains constant. Our top priority is the safety and wellness of our teammates and guests. Our website has everything you need to know to return to travel with 21c. We can't wait to welcome you back to Metropole and 21c Cincinnati!

In the middle of the night, the lights started coming on and off. I also started sneezing terribly while in the room. I checked out early, even without a refund, which the hotel and the booking company both said was the responsibility of the other one. I don’t recommend this place.

We vacationed in Cincy to view the museums and city sights and thought what a novel way to see contemporary art in the hotel itself! We were not disappointed in the diversity of styles and mediums. The room was very comfortable. Do request maid service as it was not automatic. The bellmen were very responsive to our requests. The web doesn’t mention it has a Nespresso machine! Well Done!

Our room was extremely comfortable and quiet. We loved the central location - walking distance to everything! OTR, the River, the ballparks and even Kentucky were all just a reasonable walk away. Greatly enjoyed the spa experience. Room was an upgrade (thank you!) but was a little dim as the window looked out to a Service shaft. Overall a great hotel and a great experience. Loved all the art and the camel collection!

I understand the whole covid issue, but if I’m paying full price for a service you offer, I should get the full experience. We absolutely did not. (And I’m just assuming Covid is why so much is closed and/or unavailable) 21C Spa is closed, their Restaurant for breakfast is closed, the Rooftop bar is closed. There were only 1 of 3 robes in the room. No bottle opener for the soda water we bought from them. I got tired of calling down for things. We slept terribly because we couldn’t get our bedroom ac to work, so it was very hot. I used to love 21C. Not anymore.

I thought this would happen to me. This 21c had several of the pieces I saw in Louisville several years ago. I love this chain and have not been disappointed until now, but I don’t hold it against them. COVID has been a mess. We came for a Monday and Tuesday and their restaurant and top floor were closed. I guess their lack of ambiance was a form of conceptual art.
