Upon checking in, we were greeted by the manager who was extremely helpful and personable to our family of 4. Service during our stay, the room, cleanliness (even in the midst of renovations) was all great. To top it all off, we were having breakfast and our server Darlene Freeman was nothing less than the best hostess that we've ever...

Ingrid was very nice and very helpful. She met all of our needs. She helped us learn how to use the coffee maker. She gave us directions to the Duke Energy Center where Redsfest was being held. We've had a fantastic experience so far.

Darlene Freeman is fantastic and deserves a raise and a big bonus. Always has a smile even under stressful circumstances (one week of a dead electrical outlet for toaster and chafing dish); very professional, friendly and "quick". Hotel guests seemed to just love her - and for good reason. Ingrid was wonderful to my flu ridden, cranky husband and we...

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.
