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.

Our cheer company were REQUIRED by the cheerleaders competition to book this hotel back in AUGUST. So the hotel knew we were coming. It was supposed to be a "play and stay", however, it was not.

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...
