Overview

Skyline views from indoor pool
Fees for Wi-Fi access
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.
