Best Western Premier Mariemont Inn
Ranked #1 of 51 Hotels in Cincinnati
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2008

Don’t let the Best Western label fool you, this is definitely not just a normal hotel. The Best Western Mariemont Inn is one of the hotels listed on the Historic Hotels of America website. I selected this hotel only because I was out of other options, since all of my normal business hotels in the area (i.e. Sheraton, Hilton, Hyatt) were booked.

ARRIVAL / CHECK IN

I arrived by plane into Cincinnati airport (CVG) and the taxi ride was about 20 to 30 minutes from the airport. Since I did not know where the hotel was, I was pleasantly surprised when I caught my first glimpse of the hotel. The taxi drove into a nice neighbourhood, and the area around the hotel is an historic area. The architecture all matches quite well.

The front desk has the classic vintage hotel look. It has the slots against the back wall for the individual rooms. But they did update the doors with the current electronic key card locks.

GUEST ROOM

The guest room is actually quite nice. Spacious for a hotel and it keeps with the décor of being an old hotel look.

One thing that caught my attention is the fact that there the TV seemed to be non existent. Then I saw the note that said in the 1920’s (when the inn was first built), TVs did not exist, so there is no TV available. But there was a continuation on the note saying if you really want to watch TV, to use the switch below. When I pressed the switch, the canvas of the painting above the faux fireplace raised up to reveal an LCD TV behind it.

The shower stall had an overhead rain shower head as well as the regular side wall shower head. This provided a very relaxing shower.

The wireless internet was simple to setup like normal and had decent speed and there was even a small fridge in the room.

AMMENITIES

Breakfast in the restaurant was pretty good. It was quite inexpensive considering this is a hotel restaurant. For two eggs, potatoes and toast, it only cost less than $7.

OVERALL

For the $169 / night I paid for the hotel, I felt it was a good comfortable stay. I would definitely return to this hotel the next time I am in the area. Comparing with other Historic Hotels in America, this is one of those more affordable places.

Are we all staying at the same place?
Okay remember that haunted inn that you saw in horror movies.
Well Voila!
It is sooooo dark in here. Dark!
The dark wood, the dark carpet, they even have pink sheets (never have I slept on pink sheets).
The front desk was friendly - thus the 2 star rating but if you are a business travel - walk away.
As a business travel, we want wireLESS not wired WIFI. a gym so that we can workup a sweat after a busy meeting or before a hectic day, we also want a free or discounted breakfast especially if we go to the trouble of becoming members of your hotel club. And there is nothing else in the area on a Sunday night/Monday morning to venture to
This in may be good for hmmm the blind with big pockets. But this inn needs to "step it up" and a huge makeover for any repeat business stays.

This was a charming and quaint little hotel. My room was small but adequate—and it was a great price. The room was clean and tidy. They are currently undergoing a renovation on the entrance but I didn’t hear any construction noise during my stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. This isn’t a typical chain hotel; it’s quirky but comfortable. The surrounding neighborhood was like a little upscale village. Also on the square (along with the Inn) was a movie theater, ice cream, pizza, and other shops. Graeter’s ice cream (very close by) was excellent.

We have been coming to the Mariemont Inn for many years. In fact, we had our wedding reception here. To me it feels like home. I am happy to see that some rooms are being updated, but that the staff is still friendly and the rooms and bathrooms are spotless. The bar and restaurant downstairs have only gotten better over the years...check out happy hour and wine specials, but don't forget to reserve your table on the weekend.
The Dilly Delly and Starbucks next door are a great convenience, and the neighborhood is safe and lovely. Stroll around and explore. Don't forget to hit Graeter's for ice cream!
Mariemont is only 15-20 minutes from down town and the baseball/football stadiums, museums etc. Also Kenwood (best mall in town) and Blue Ash (many companies here) are about 10 minutes away.
There is some construction, but we only had noise for 10 minutes during our stay, and that was mid-morning. Otherwise it was blissfully quiet.
This isn't a glossy Hyatt, but the Mariemont Inn is a great value in a terrific neighborhood.

This is a nice hotel in a nice location at a nice price. The common areas and restaurant are well preserved in their Bavarian (????) motif. The room was small and had been updated at different times in different styles. I wouldn't call it ecclectic. The bed was comfortable. Everything was clean and in working order. The restaurant was excellent for dinner and breakfast. Close to downtown Cincinnati but in a quiet upscale neighborhood.
