    Large, well-appointed rooms in the middle of downtown Cincinnati. Definitely will come back next time in town.

    Ask for a recently renovated room. They exist -- and you won't feel like your in the 90's if you score one.

    Great location. Very central and close to everything.

    During summer take the more silent room on the backside even if fountain view is great.

  • V A.

    For a $200+ hotel not located in NY, the rooms and bathroom are tiny.

    This is one of those you get what ya pay for deals! But with A Taste of Cincinnati right outside your doors what more could you ask for! My only complaint is at these prices Internet should be free!

    Laura Moore · May 26, 2013
  • John C.

    Nice workout center!

    John Cano · May 10, 2013

    Easy access to fountain square parking at ground level from street entry to fountain square. (Inside Westin) keeps you dry if it is raining.

    Ryan Henke · April 11, 2013
  • Doug G.

    Better get a map if u plan on using the sky mall because it's easy to get lost.

    Do not eat at the bar over vine.... Terrible food!

    The Hotel Gibson — actually four of them (it kept the same name after each rebuilding) — sat at the corner of 5th and Walnut. The last building (1922) was called the "largest hostelry in the Midwest." Read more

    Room service is available 24hrs. Definitely recommend the Steak Frites and Oatmeal. Not necessarily together.

    Elevators are slow every visit.

    Make sure you book on the Westin website. You can get a deluxe room with a view for the same cost of the traditional.

    John Wooton · May 18, 2012
  • Mieke S.

    Stop by the front desk to get a free appetizer or desert card with the purchase of an entree at Rock Bottom Brewery across the square!

    Awesome hotel, great beds, good breakfast, friendly staff, and Thad at the bar is awesome. Be sure to get chips!

    If you need to park the valet is over $20/night. You can find Much cheaper alternatives by self parking in the garage under the Westin or Fountain Square.

    When staying here there's no excuse not to get a quick workout in. The gym is open 24/7, it's free and if you forgot your gym clothes and sneakers they have rentals from New Balance! Stay healthy.

    Anthony Rallo · March 9, 2012
  • W. Joe D.

    Have Thad serve you a drink at the bar, solve the world's problems, and chat about his board game collection.

    W. Joe DeMiero · February 22, 2012
  • Bryan B.

    The front desk will loan you an umbrella or New Balance running kit if you have forgotten to pack either.

    Maybe it's just me, but the towels here smell awful

    In 1928, Cincinnati's most luxurious theater, the Albee Theater, was built on this site. The facade was recreated on the 5th St. side of the convention center. Courtesy

    The Star Theatre sat on 5th Street opposite the Tyler Davidson Fountain (roughly where the Westin is today). Seats cost ten cents. 1920 photo courtesy of Cincinnati Museum Center.

    For beer lovers, right across Westin over at Fountain Square, Rock Bottom offers their own brewed beers. Nice place to unwind.

    Do not order the crabcakes - they look like tater tots and 3 for $14 is no bargin.

    Free cookie in the lobby for hotel guests

    Park in the garage under the hotel and use the skywalks to do all the best shopping. Avoid crossing the street, rain, snow, wind, heat, etc.

    Carla G. · April 11, 2010
  • Steve W.

    While you are in Cinci, check out some good places to eat - I reccomend Arnold's for meatballs or Chalk across the river in Covington.

    Try the "green choice" program. If you stay 2+ nights and decline housekeeping for a day, you can earn 500 extra points. Above everything, feel good about doing your bit for the planet.
