The hotel was under going renovations but everything was done during the day. Our room was exceptionally clean and the staff was wonderful, they helped us with breakfast with free food vouchers. Everyone was very friendly and the hotel reservation line gave us a better deal than I could get on-line. The manager was everywhere helping where he could and...

The room was spacious but everything is shabby. To get hot water in the sink or the shower be prepared to wait at least 10 min. Imagine how convenient it is in the morning. The reception desk is very helpful but they hardly can do anything. We asked for a small fridge in advance and it was delivered, but it...

Undergoing renovation to modernize which is needed. I'd probably wait until it's done. Restaurant on premises but lots of restaurants within walking distance. Trolly/shuttle gets you to Cinci sports venues and convention center. Very friendly staff who handled issues. Small bathroom but nice shower. Internet works well. Outdoor pool and fitness room.

I have to say that as many hotels that I've stayed in this hotel had the friendliest staff. Everyone on their staff that we came in contact with was absolutely the nicest and most helpful of any.

Dirty, mold, broken toilets, really dirty, stains on the mattresses. Way over priced. bad internet. You will probably get sick from the A/C because the dont clean the filters. "State of the art gym" is a joke! Weird body fluid stains? No towels, now wipes! Unless you just want to drink and pass out? Dump!

The staff was incredible. Everyone was super friendly and honest. Lauren, the guest service supervisor, was particularly great and left us with a memory we won't forget.
