Great hotel - the rooms are well appointed and well designed. The staff was extremely attentive. I was in the elevator and the service person on the elevator could see I was in a rush to catch a flight - she immediately asked for my valet number - called for my car while I was in the elevator - as...

Stayed her for a night back in August of 2016 and it was a great stay. Central location and a really unusual and neat hotel. The room was very good with comfortable beds and good blackout curtains. Great lobby and a good restaurant adjacent to the lobby as well

Being native Louisvillians, we've always been a fan of 21c. We were excited to try out their Cincy location and in usual style, 21c did not disappoint. We truly admire and respect the attention to EVERY single detail of this hotel. 21c is well known for unique decor and art. While this location isn't quite as edgy, it is still...

Always a great choice. Nobody does it like 21c. Amazing hotel and the rooms are truly beautiful. Stayed in Luxury suite on 8th floor. Perfect location too. The bathrooms were to me, most impressive. The shower was a pleasure to experience with two different shower heads and an accompanying tub all in the same glass door sealed space. Really first...

I turned a recent business trip into a mini-family vacation as well, and found a good deal on this hotel. It probably would not have been my first choice for a family vacation but I'm glad we stayed here. Rooms: 4 stars We had a standard room with two queen size beds. The room offered what you'd expect from a...

This is a hotel experience unlike any other. From the moment you arrive and the staff greet you as themselves - no uniforms, no script, just a genuine sense that they are pleased that you have arrived and they want to take care of you. This is the epitome of a unique space and place and I freakin loved it!...

Room was not the cleanest - spots on bathroom floor and someone's plastic tag from a new clothing item there when we arrived. Bathroom lights and such were dirty and the walls were a little beat up. Carpeting felt worn and not clean. Heard every door around us closing and everything from the room above us - sound echoing from...

I was coming to Cincinnati and it was suggested we stay at the Museum 21C. When I arrived their was a doorman who got my luggage from the cab and opened the door. At first I thought I had gone to the wrong door because the lobby didn't look like your typical hotel lobby. But as I turned to look...

6th floor king suite, immaculate. Stylish, very clean, well-stocked mini-bar, incredibly comfortable king bed and pillows, large bathroom. Room was a corner room and very quite. We never heard anyone outside the room, above or below us. Fun, interesting hotel. Quirky art pieces. Location is downtown, very nice area. Staff was very nice and incredibly helpful.
