From the name of this hotel you'd think it was in Cincinnati. But it's not and you'd have to drive or find the shuttle to get there. It is in Covington right on the other side of the river. The area is okay, we were able to take in the Oktoberfest which was a blast. Restaurant is okay, kids eat... More

We went to this hotel so we could stay and watch the Riverfest/WEBN fireworks. We arrived at 3pm to check in only to be told by reception that we would have to wait for our room.

The Front desk was great, shuttles to the wedding event were late, air conditioning worked, eggs at the post wedding brunch were awful (balls of what seemed to be powdered eggs), room was clean and bed was very comfortable, curtains darkened the room completely

We checked in for our anniversary and were surprised by Tiffani. She had the staff sign a card and surprised us with champagne, chocolate cake, and strawberries. Excellent service! She and the rest of the staff went above and beyond to make this stay memorable. We will return!

We have stayed at this hotel twice in the past year. It is just fine. The rooms are adequate and clean. The exercise facilities are good for a Holiday Inn. Nice location if you are trying to catch a Reds game, just across the river.

Firstly, Sa'de at the front desk was an absolute queen of her position. She took care of everything I needed and was super courteous, friendly and approachable. I came in last minute, but that was not an issue. I stayed initially for two nights and ended up needing an additional two. Again, no issues. The location is prime...5 minute drive... More

The location is great for visiting Cincinnati. We were in town for a Reds game. The shuttle stops right outside of the hotel. The hotel itself was nice and clean and all of the staff were friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed hanging out by the pool.
