We really enjoyed our stay. We were stopping up in our way back to Columbus. Location is near Newport and Cincinnati. Both are awesome nightlife areas. In addition we were across from some amazing riverfront pizza! Walk in shower, nice beds, just what we needed.

Convenient to downtown Cincinnati. We were pleased with the room. It was quiet, clean and comfortable. The hotel also has a breakfast area and bar, but we did not have time to try it. We would stay here again. Friendly staff also.

Hi Chena, I sincerely apologize for the dissatisfying stay that you had at our hotel. I am not sure where a "play and stay" tag came from, but the cheer competition was aware that we have an outdoor pool and that the weather would not be warm enough in November for the pool to be open. Our team certainly addressed...
