    21c Museum Hotel Cincinnati
    Cincinnati, OH
    #1 in Best Hotels in Cincinnati
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1525 reviewsTripAdvisor (1525)
    Free WiFi

    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 heaped 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 amenities including 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. The hotel also boasts an on-site fitness center, though recent guests warn that it is a bit small. 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.

    The Hotel Covington Cincinnati Riverfront, which opened its doors in September 2016, occupies the iconic 1910 Coppin's Department Store building. The Covington, Kentucky, property nods to its roots with the Coppin's Restaurant & Bar and preserved design touches featured throughout the hotel, such as the high ceilings and oversized display windows. Recent guests appreciated the chic interiors, especially in their rooms, which reviewers described as "beautiful." Accommodations are outfitted in rich jewel tones, with velvet tufted headboards and amenities like free Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TVs and minifridges stocked with local products. The emphasis on locally sourced ingredients is also on display in the restaurant menus and at the on-site Artisan Coffee Bar, which uses Carabello Coffee from nearby Newport, Kentucky. And when the weather allows, guests can enjoy the outdoors at The Patio at Coppin's, which offers lawn games, evening movie screenings and a fireplace. Other on-site amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, a late night grab-and-go eatery and business facilities. In addition to the eye-catching interiors and delicious restaurant menus, visitors were also pleased with the courteous and attentive staff. You’ll find this hotel across the Ohio River from downtown Cincinnati.

This Hilton also contains a pool and a fitness center – though recent guests thought both were on the smaller side – and three on-site eateries. Previous patrons only have positive things to say about Orchids at Palm Court, citing tasty cuisine and top-notch service as reasons to return.

    The Westin Cincinnati
    Cincinnati, OH
    #5 in Best Hotels in Cincinnati
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1274 reviewsTripAdvisor (1274)

    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 Heavenly Beds, along with floor-to-ceiling windows and flat-screen TVs. What's more, the hotel underwent renovations in 2015 to freshen up its accommodations. The property's popular facilities, such as the indoor pool, two dining venues, WestinWORKOUT gym and 24-hour business center, also pleased guests. However, some travelers thought the room rates were a little pricey for an average business hotel. Because Westin is a member of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    The Cincinnatian Hotel
    Cincinnati, OH
    #7 in Best Hotels in Cincinnati
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 63 reviewsTripAdvisor (63)
    Free WiFi

    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, which is currently undergoing renovations until March 2018. 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.

    Residence Inn Cincinnati Downtown/The Phelps
    Cincinnati, OH
    #8 in Best Hotels in Cincinnati
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 912 reviewsTripAdvisor (912)
    Free WiFi

    The Residence Inn Cincinnati Downtown/The Phelps sits in downtown Cincinnati, less than a mile from The Great American Ball Park and Paul Brown Stadium, home to the MLB's Cincinnati Reds and the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals, respectively. Despite being in the center of the city's action, guests say the property is quiet. Housed in the Phelps Building (originally constructed in 1926), the all-suite hotel is pet-friendly and has 134 rooms. Travelers can choose between studio, one-bedroom or two-bedroom layouts; all are outfitted in blues and greens have at least a king-sized bed and a sofa bed (larger rooms have additional sleeping space), swiveling flat-screen TVs that allow you to watch from several spaces and a fully equipped kitchen. Bathrooms have shower and tub combos. Wi-Fi is complimentary, but only valet parking is available and it incurs steep daily rates. The hotel has a small fitness center and is near a jogging trail. Unlike some other Marriott properties, this location offers a complimentary full hot breakfast daily. The Phelps Bar serves tapas and drinks at dinner, but Top of the Park – the property's rooftop bar – is the clear on-site dining choice. With stunning city and Ohio River views, handcrafted cocktails and light bites, it's popular with locals and hotel guests alike. Loyal Marriott hotel guests can earn and redeem Marriott Rewards points here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1653 reviewsTripAdvisor (1653)
    Free WiFi

    The Hyatt Regency is situated in downtown Cincinnati and a good choice for travelers catching a game at nearby Paul Brown Stadium or the Great American Ball Park both are within walking distance of the hotel. Rooms at the property are equipped with coffee makers, flat-screen TVs, iHome radios and Hyatt's signature Grand Beds. Recent guests suggested requesting a room on a higher floor for impressive Cincinnati skyline views. Past lodgers also noted that while the rooms were exceptionally clean, standard rooms and bathrooms were on the smaller side. But most travelers spent their time outside of the room the hotel has a fitness center and a fifth-floor glass-enclosed heated pool with an attached sundeck. When you get hungry, sit down for a meal at Red Roost Tavern or grab a quick bite at The Market, which serves salads and paninis to go. And thanks to the hotel's Hyatt ties, loyalty program members can collect and use points for perks like meals at the hotel's restaurants.

    Marriott Cincinnati RiverCenter
    Covington, KY
    3.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 849 reviewsTripAdvisor (849)

    OK, this hotel isn't actually in Cincinnati but across the Ohio River in Covington, Kentucky, (about 98 miles northeast of Louisville). The Marriott's Ohio riverfront location, close to the big city, does seem to be one of its key selling points. That's particularly true if you're interested in catching a Bengals football game at Paul Brown Stadium (about 1 mile away) or a Reds baseball game at the Great American Ballpark (also just 1 mile away). Some guests complain of slow room service and a somewhat confusing journey from the lobby to the hotel rooms. Speaking of rooms, all feature beds with pillow-top mattresses, coffee makers, marble bathrooms and in-room Internet access (for a fee). If you want to make the most out of staying at the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter, you should book a room facing the water and not the city streets. Additional on-site amenities guests can take advantage of include a fitness center, an indoor pool and a handful of restaurants and lounges. Earn or indulge in complimentary perks if you're a Marriott Rewards member.
