    21c Museum Hotel Cincinnati
    Cincinnati, OH
    #1 in Best Hotels in Ohio
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1522 reviewsTripAdvisor (1522)
    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.

    InterContinental Cleveland
    Cleveland, OH
    #4 in Best Hotels in Ohio
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 999 reviewsTripAdvisor (999)
    Free WiFi

    Previous visitors praised 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.

The luxury continues at The Barn, the hotel's fine dining restaurant, which is located in a 175-year-old barn and serves American cuisine paired with an expansive wine list, though several recent guests weren't thrilled with the wait staff. Inn Walden is also home to the more casual Blue Ribbon Café and The Clubhouse, which overlooks Club Walden's 18-hole golf course. You'll find the hotel about 30 miles southeast of Cleveland.

    Hilton Columbus Downtown
    Columbus, OH
    #7 in Best Hotels in Ohio
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1914 reviewsTripAdvisor (1914)

    Recent visitors consistently described 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 Honors points here for complimentary nights or rack them up for future stays.

    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.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1264 reviewsTripAdvisor (1264)

    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 Rewards members can earn and use points here.

    The Westin Cleveland Downtown
    Cleveland, OH
    #13 in Best Hotels in Ohio
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1262 reviewsTripAdvisor (1262)

    Location is the prime selling point of this Westin in Cleveland and what recent guests said they loved most about this property. The hotel puts guests within walking distance of both sightseeing hot spots, such as Progressive Field, FirstEnergy Stadium and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and business facilities like the Cleveland Convention Center. Visitors will find plenty to do on the premises as well. The Westin Cleveland Downtown boasts a 24-hour business center, a restaurant serving farm-to-table food and a fitness studio. But if you would rather get outside, the hotel provides running maps of the area and will lend guests workout gear for a small fee. Back at the hotel, travelers will find that rooms come with Westin's signature Heavenly Beds, flat-screen TVs, glass-topped work desks, internet access (for a fee) and views of the Cleveland skyline or Lake Erie. In addition to the Westin's ideal location, past guests lauded the hotel's employees saying they went above and beyond to make their stays pleasant. Though, some travelers said there was room for improvement with the hotel's room service and Wi-Fi speeds, and many wished the valet parking fee wasn't so steep (it's $30 per night). If you're a member of the Marriott Rewards program, you can offset costs by using points to cover your stay.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 920 reviewsTripAdvisor (920)

    Recent guests at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown had high praise for this centrally located property. The Hilton Cleveland Downtown is less than a mile from Progressive Field (home of the Cleveland Indians), the Quicken Loans Arena (home of the Cavaliers) and the FirstEnergy Stadium (home to the Cleveland Browns). And if you're not a sports nut, you can enjoy a short walk to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just a few blocks north. Inside this Hilton, travelers are treated to spacious guest rooms that feature 55-inch flat-screen TVs and floor-to-ceiling windows, among other features. Lodgers strongly suggest springing for a room on a high floor for sweeping city and lake views. If you don't want to drop the extra coin, grabbing a drink at Bar 32 (located on the 32nd floor) will suffice. So might a trip to the indoor pool, which also offers city views from its sixth-floor perch. The hotel also offers a fitness room, a business center, a market equipped with Starbucks coffee and the Burnham Restaurant, which serves American flavors for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Though lodgers say this property is outstanding, some note that a stay here isn't cheap. But if you're a Hilton Honors member, you can earn or redeem points here.
