I was expecting to stay at a hotel worth the Hilton name and the character of a historic building in downtown Cincinnati. Unfortunately what I found was a cold and starkly finished hotel, a room with had no character, a Hilton hotel that showed no appreciation for Hilton Honor members, and overall a terribly disappointing experience. Save your money and go to a Hampton Inn, at least you get a hot breakfast or if you have to be downtown, go elsewhere.

CAUTION DO NOT STAY HERE -You have been warned - If you still go, I already told you so. A business with no empathy will not get my money again. The Hilton Garden Inn is better, stay there instead. I did not stay but based on the level of service I received from the front desk, I am not interested in staying here at all. I had plans change and because I was 2 hours late from the 48 hour cancellation policy I was charged the full nights stay, i was only staying for one night. This was for my birthday, a business with no empathy will not get my money again. I did not know there was a 48 hour cancellation policy. When i made the reservation on the 14th the system told me that I could cancel by November 12th. Huh? Makes no sense. The “GM” that I spoke with had no experience and said that he couldn’t cancel it. I call the 1-800 hilton number and the rep confirms that it had been cancelled. The GM did not confirm this with me before getting off the phone with me, he said that he couldn’t cancel it before ending the call. The place looks nice but if the service of the people working there doesn’t match, no thank you. You have been warned.

Staying here for a quiet weekend. Room next door was loud enough that while lying in bed with the tv on, we could hear the group next door’s conversation, word-for-word (talking about the Hampton Inn next door and someone they needed to call). We loudly knocked twice on the connecting door to alert them to how loud they were. We then received a call from the front desk, where the front desk person proceeded to yell at us, accused us of lying about how loud the other people were, and said our complaint didn’t matter because we had booked through a third-party website. I have stayed at many hotels and have never been shouted at by a front desk person. Also, No wi-if, either. Our first and last visit here. Take your $$ elsewhere.

Looks fancy on the outside. Artsy on the inside. Provided you choose to overnight in the lobby you should have a good time. The rooms were dirty. Housekeeping was nonexistent. When I asked at the front desk to have my room serviced the young man(more on this later) stated he was the only employee on-site and it would take a while for him to get away from the desk to bring towels and coffee supplies up himself. We even joked about calling around to the Netherland Hilton which is wonderfully over-staffed to borrow some Hilton employees. The sheets and Mattress Pad did not fit the mattress and while making the bed ourselves, we found that a stain on the mattress near the bedside table matched the over-spray stain on the sheets. This indicated to us that the sheets had not been changed since the last guest spilled their coffee. (From above) There did not seem to be a single employee over 23 years of age on the premises. Most of the time there was indeed ONLY a single employee on-site at all. This is not to fault the friendly, yet slightly under-qualified staff on hand. I'm sure that if the Hilton organization saw fit to actually hire a qualified manager for the site our experience may have been better. So, no real help on-site, dirty rooms, lack of housekeeping between guests. I expect this from a rent-by-the-half-hour roadside motel, not a Hilton "Curio" that charges this much.

I had a wonderful stay at The Cincinnatian this past week. Once i checked into my hotel room they had a great valet service in front to park my vehicle. A valet named Nick took care of my car the whole time and parked it a few times, he had a lovely personality and was very welcoming. The hotel itself was also very wonderful and they met all of my needs.

We traveled from Ann Arbor, Mi to attend the Cincinnati open. My husband is a diamond member and we were told our room assignment was ‘the last room in the hotel.’ We walked in to find it hot and stuffy but 2 box fans in the room. Didn’t think much about it until we turned on the a/c and left for dinner. A few hours later we found the room even hotter. After reporting it to front desk we were assigned another room. Had to pack up & relocate - someone had to have known the a/c wasn’t working…not happy and not impressed. The bar located in the hotel ‘closing ‘ for rehab.

This hotel is not up to Hilton standard. I am a diamond member and when I checked in there was no acknowledgment of that or my way benefits. Paid extra for connecting rooms only to find out that the connecting rooms are dead bolted and there is not an actual to open up the doors. The phones in the room had the wrong room numbers on them. The remote in one of the rooms had packing tape on the back of it. Both rooms were not clean and felt dirty. One of the rooms had green nail polish on the door. There is no restaurant on site for dinner even though on the phone it says “restaurant”. When we checked out we did what valet told us to do and scanned the QR Code was advised it would take 10 minutes, but 30 minutes later we were still waiting for the car. I get the hotel was busy, but they should have planned better or given a more realistic timeframe. Next time I’m in Cincinnati, I will definitely not stay here again since you pay for services that they do not deliver on and not to mention dirty rooms.

We checked in today, July 30, 2022, for a two night stay. Tonight, my wife got stuck in the toilet area of the bathroom due to a pocket door sticking. I called the front desk and explained the situation and was advised that someone from maintenance would be up in 15 minutes. After 20 minutes, I called the front desk again and the same clerk advised that they do not have anyone working in the maintenance department. When I asked why he didn’t call me he advised he did not write down the room number AND they are prohibited from calling guest rooms. He did say he could send up some fans. When I again explained that my wife was trapped in the room he offered to call an ambulance - not sure why. Finally, a manager said they would call a nearby hotel for assistance. A representative from the other hotel was able to unjam the lock and simply shook his head at the locking mechanism. I then walked down to the front office and the representative explained that he thought I said we were having an a/c issue. He then asked if there was anything else he could do. There are better options in Cincinnati.
