  • 4.5-star Hotel Class

Appropriately perched adjacent to the Contemporary Arts Center — across the street from the Aronoff Center for the Arts in downtown Cincy — the 21c Museum Hotel Cincinnati is for the traveler looking for a little more than just a place to hang their hat. Recent guests heap praise on the unique outpost of the 21c Museum collection, saying they felt little need to step foot outside the hotel. Perhaps that's because you don't need to leave to get your fill of culture: The museum within the hotel features a rotating roster of 21st century artists. And the creativity doesn't stop at the gallery display; rooms are stylishly decorated with iPod docking stations, MALIN + GOETZ toiletries and Nespresso coffee makers. If interpreting modern art isn't your idea of a good time, you can enjoy some pampering at the Spa at 21c. And when your stomach starts to rumble, the on-site restaurant, Metropole, receives rave reviews from past visitors thanks to its fresh menu and knowledgeable waitstaff. more

Recent visitors consistently describe the Hilton Columbus Downtown as refreshingly modern with a courteous staff and an enviable location in Ohio's capital: This Hilton is situated right across the street from the Greater Columbus Convention Center, near the Arena District and less than a mile south of the North Market. Rooms feature 42-inch LCD TVs, spacious work desks and alarm clocks with MP3 connectivity. When you're not lounging in your accommodations, you can head to the indoor pool (a favorite of recent guests) or work up a sweat in the fitness center. Past visitors said they were pleasantly surprised by the modern amenities found in the gym. However, guests were less impressed with the extra fees for parking and in-room Internet access. Some also noted the walls here were a bit thin, meaning you could hear anything and everything in the hallways. The Gallerie Bistro, on the other hand, receives praise for its improved menu and variety of offerings. Looking for a way to save some coin? Cash in your Hilton HHonors points here for complimentary nights or rack them up for future stays. more

The Cincinnatian Hotel first opened its doors in 1882, with a French Second Empire design and "Palace Hotel" for its name. Today, this historic hotel, located on Vine Street, is esteemed for The Palace restaurant. The hotel's Cricket Lounge also boasts delectable fare and a relaxed ambiance, further enhanced by its surrounding eight-story atrium. But the elegant and comfortable rooms, appointed with calming beige and red accents, wooden furnishings, luxurious linens, complimentary Wi-Fi access and deep soaking tubs, are popular among guests, too. However, what recent visitors appreciate the most is the hotel's romantic atmosphere and extremely friendly staff. While recent guests loved the staff, they did notice that the older building could use some updating.  more

Previous visitors praise the InterContinental Cleveland for its reasonable room rates, easy access to the Cleveland Clinic and tasty cuisine served at on-site eateries, North Coast Café and Table 45. As far as bedding down is concerned, you can rest assured that you'll have high-end room amenities, like goose down comforters, 300-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens, lavish bath products and sleek flat-screen TVs. As an added bonus, if you're a frequent guest of InterContinental properties, you're eligible to receive free perks, such as free nights' stays through the company's IHG Rewards Club. The hotel's only drawback, according to some recent guests, is its subpar cleaning service. And since the hotel sits on the Cleveland Clinic Health System campus, it's highly frequented by hospital visitors and patients. As such, and due to its zero-tolerance noise policy at night, this hotel should not be your top choice for raucous weekends or rowdy birthday parties. more

Most recent guests report a pleasant stay at The Westin Cincinnati thanks to the property's convenient Fountain Square location in the downtown area. And while some say the decor is simplistic, guests appreciated that rooms are clean, comfortable and appointed with signature amenities, including soft robes and lavish Heavenly Beds. What's more, the hotel underwent renovations in 2015 to freshen up the accommodations. The property's popular facilities, such as the indoor pool, two dining venues, WestinWORKOUT gym and 24-hour business center, keep guests coming back. However, some travelers thought the room rates were a little pricey for an average business hotel. Because Westin is a member of the Starwood clan, Starwood Preferred Guests are eligible to earn or use points here. more

Recent guests were equally impressed with the distinctive, spacious guest rooms that all feature large seating areas with sofa beds, 55-inch flat-screen TVs, honor bars and complimentary Internet access.
