... we are currently back under the gun. We still need several last minute items to make our trip abroad a success. Several shopping trips of trying on what seems to be everything only to leave empty-handed is quite disappointing. On top of that, we still have to complete some of our plans. Waiting until the last possible second seems to be the only way Maggie and I can operate, so it should be just like everything else. Only a few days left in the states and then we are ...

... I was almost done with it the family that owns the DQ pulled into the parking lot. It turns out the owner is Rhonda's younger sister. She said she worked at the Dairy Queen as a kid and then bought it about 15 years ago. We talked for 15 minutes and it was nice to get to know a little bit about them. They gave me a gift card to use at any DQ I encounter on the rest of my bike trip. Big ...
A send off dinner last night with Sarah and Jamie was followed by a late night, last minute packing frenzy. I woke early for last minute prep, walked to Ludlow, and met our cab for the first leg of our travels. We flew into Atlanta, where I am frantically uploading music and books during our layover, taking advantage of fast (but not free) internet. We leave here shortly for our overnight flight to ...
... had to borrow blocks from the shop truck to raise our back tire some and then we employed both leveling jacks to help out too. It’s better but still feeling a bit seasick inside.
I don’t believe we have a sponsor here, but you wouldn’t have known it from the crowd. Al, our bill poster, showered the town with free kids tickets and we were welcoming families with fistfuls of them for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza
What a beautiful hotel!
This absolutely gorgeous place needs to be on a best in America list. Found the service and attention of all staff to be some of the most cordial in a long while. An old friend and I had a whirlpool package which was relaxing and wonderful. Such a light, clean, and airy room. The Palm Court waiters were out of a story book, and the food was superlative. I'm giving it five well earned stars.
I stayed at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza for one night the weekend of 16 July 2004, as part of the hotel's special deal with the Cincinnati Opera. I was going to be in town for a performance of "Don Giovanni," and thought it would be nice to stay overnight instead of driving home late. I had never been to that hotel before, and after reading the mixed reviews on this website, I approached it with a slight bit of trepidation, but in the end, I was extremely pleased.
The lobby and meeting rooms are beautiful, however. . . The rooms are very small and the walls are very thin! I could hear every conversation from the rooms next door. I was very disappointed in the concierge service. When one travels out of town, they should be able to rely on the Concierge. We asked for a paticular type of resturant and were sent to something entirely different! In addition, we were told that Covington stores were open on Sunday - and they were not. We were stuck in Covington and unable to get a taxi. We called bact to the Concierge to get help getting a taxi and he gave us a telephone number to a taxi service. When we called that taxi service, we were told that they do not work the Covington Area! We asked to Concierge to make a call to a resturant. When we got there he had not called! This group of concierge's were tiped well - but did not perform their duties - Lesson learned, do not tip these people until you get back from your adventure!
The gentleman at the front desk welcomed me and chatted with me about the hotel's Art Deco architecture. He reminded me of the time change that night.
beautiful hotel with tons of fine artwork. rooms are clean, comfortable. to top it off, got room for under 100 dollars on a saturday night. will definately return.
I surprized my husband for our 22nd wedding anniversary and took him to
the Hilton. This hotel was beautiful! Our room, with a jucuzzi was
awesome. The bed was very comfy and cozy. I called ahead and ordered
champaign glasses and strawberries. Both were there when we got to our
room. People were friendly and very helpful.
We went to Morton's Steack House for dinner. That was delicious. The whole night was not cheap, but hey, we deserve it. We've been happily married for 22 years!!
We had a wonderful time and will not hesitate to go back.
Spectacular in every way.
One of the best hotels in the Midwest, if not the country. Decor is nearly unbelievable, Palm Court rivals anything in Europe. Staff couldn't be nicer and prices, both rooms and meals, were reasonable.
Best possible location in a fun downtown area. I'd never stay anywhere else in Cincy.
I've travelled to a fair number of hotels around the world and I challenge anyone to find one that's more beautiful. Literally every inch is a work of art, yet, the whole things is very tastefully done. In addition, the service was OUTSTANDING! On 2 different occassions I had staff literally walk food up to my conference, 3 flights of stairs up! Don't miss this place!
A Very Positive Experience
The hotel is beautiful. My room was large, lovely and comfortable. Everything was simply nice. I will stay here again and again and again.
What an Looker!
The Netherland Plaza is, simply put, breathtakingly beautiful. I challenge you to find another hotel in the US, and perhaps in the world, that has such stunning and awe-inspiring authentic Art Deco era appointments. I was expecting to bump into William Randolph Hearst at every turn. However, "Rosebud" would never have tolerated the service here which falls woefully short of the surroundings. In response to the broken cooling unit (which ran like a compressor all night and soaked the floor)in my smallish room, I got a "Sorry 'bout that!" Similarly, the service in the dining area alternated between snarling and inept. You gotta see the public areas, but unfortunately, there are no brains behind that beauty.
