Cincinnati Hotels

Set neatly on the frothy Ohio River, “Queen City” Cincinnati has plenty to feel important about. From its rich heritage as one of America’s boomtowns, to family attractions galore, it boasts everything from top notch museums and theaters, to hair-raising theme park thrills. But that’s not all. Add to that 2 major sporting establishments, year-round events, and a culinary scene that serves up Germanic fare and more chili restaurants than anywhere else in the US – and it’s safe to say Cincinnati has something on the menu for everyone.

Things to see

The epicenter of the city’s buzzing downtown core, Fountain Square is the hub of many major community events. Surrounded by towering hotels, offices, shops and restaurants, its centerpiece is the highly ornate Tyler Davidson Fountain. Standing proud at 43-foot tall, the central figure is the Genius of Water, who pours shimmering water from her outstretched hands. Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden is the second oldest in America, and one of Cincinnati’s biggest attractions. From majestic big cats to slithering reptiles, the zoo is home to creatures from around the globe, whilst the gardens feature themed parcels of floral finery. A few miles northeast of the city, Kings Island is the largest amusement park in the Midwest. From world record-setting roller coasters like the adrenaline-inducing Banshee, to family-friendly rides at Planet Snoopy, the park has something for everyone. Sports fans will undoubtedly be making a homerun to the Great American Ball Park – home of the Cincinnati Reds of Major League Baseball.

Hotels in Cincinnati

Whether you’re here for business or pleasure, the hotels in Cincinnati come suitably equipped for both. From luxuriously appointed spa retreats and artsy downtown digs, to cozy B&Bs, sleek business establishments, and familiar chain name favorites – there’s something to tick everyone’s box. The mid-range hotels in Cincinnati often come as the latter variety, the larger of which usually count swimming pools, fitness facilities, and business centers among their amenities, with plenty of mod-cons in-room. Those after a cheaper stay will find plenty of choice outside of the city center, whether they want a basic motel or a cheap and cheerful inn.

Where to stay

Forming the city’s distinctive skyline, that gleams by day and glows by night, the downtown district is Cincinnati’s energized nucleus. Alongside major attractions like Fountain Square and the Great American Ballpark, it’s also home to futuristic riverfront development The Banks. Lodged between the city’s two stadiums, the 18-acre site features a collection of chic restaurants and entertainment venues, all within sight of the historic Roebling Suspension Bridge. Whilst downtown hogs much of the limelight, it’s also worth considering a hotel in Cincinnati’s Uptown area too. Home to the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Zoo, its characterful neighborhoods all offer something a little different.

How to get to Cincinnati

Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport is the gateway of choice for those flying in. Well-connected to cities across the United States, it serves a handful of international destinations non-stop, including Paris, Toronto, Cancun, and Punta Cana.
