Because it was homecoming at the university, all of the hotels near the campus were full, so I opted for this hotel. I couldn't have been more pleased. It is a little further than where I normally stay but worth it! I will accept the distance and stay there again in the future.

Could not get into the Hilton Netherland around the corner, so I ended up here. But it was more than fine. Pretty old school hotel, but fully modernized. Good bar. Great modern room with big bathroom and closets, couch and desk. Very clean and comfortable. Also, was about $100 or more less than the Netherland. I would stay again if in Cincinnati.
