We arrived at 8 A.M. after a red-eye flight from Seattle. We were exhausted! We had reservations for that night, but all of the rooms were filled from the previous night and check-out time was still 3 hours away. Well, the staff let us sit in comfy chairs in a closed area just off of the lobby and served us coffee. We had a great breakfast in The National Exemplar (another review of this excellent restaurant will follow) and returned to our "private" area. At 10 A.M. we were given our room with no extra charge for the early arrival.
The room was immaculate, spacious, well decorated, and very comfortable. The bathroom was amazing, with a huge walk-in shower and separate bathtub. My husband noticed that there was no TV. On the mantle of the fireplace was a small card that said "Where's the TV?". Well, it was carefully concealed to preserve the 1920's décor. There was a switch on the wall that caused the "painting" over the fireplace to retract to reveal the screen! There was also a small refrigerator in the room, coffee pot, hair dryer, internet availability, and lots of other amenities.
We stayed for 4 nights. This hotel is within easy driving distance from downtown Cincinnati in a lovely village. I highly recommend this one!! Both the staff and building are amazing!
There are lots of interesting antiques and historical displays in & around the lobby. less
