I thought the property was very attractive - both in terms of location as well as inside. Location kept you away from the direct hustle and bustle of downtown traffic noise, but certainly a good location for many downtown locations.
The property seemed a little expensive. I booked a king suite. The bedroom was great but the sofa bed was not very attractive for teenagers. The main room really is more geared for a resident traveler - I think a business person or couple would be most happy with the facility, especially if you have a good travel budget. With a family of 4 or more, you probably would want a 2-bedroom suite and that really hikes up your price.
If you're traveling with family, you will also be disappointed with the bathroom not having a sink separated from the toilet/shower area, although you can always use the kitchen sink as an alternative sink. If you need some space to entertain or might use the kitchen space for meal preparation, then this would be a great place in the heart of Cincinnati.
I'll put an excellent rating on the facility, as it is, but again you will probably find better value in terms of sleeping space, etc. for families at another location.
