Nashville tomorrow, so I am excited. I get to see my wife, and we are having another warrior gathering there as well. Maybe I can get her to give the wife's perspective in it, and it could be beneficial to her as well.
Sorry for the lack of pictures, I was a bit busy today.
Bad storms on the horizon forced an early portage at a Cincinnati-are Walmart. Tried my best to capture the lightning to no avail. The best was a glow through the clouds. Had to pull over anyway because, as you can see, the navigator fell asleep! Home ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Millennium Hotel Cincinnati
A great Stay And Location
Just got back from three nights at the Four Points over 4th of July weekend and had a great time. Were a little concerned about the hotel absed on previous reviews but did not encounter any of these problems. Yes, the rooms are small but the reservation states that it is 163 square feet, so that was no surprise, The Bed was comfortbale and the shower nice. The outdoor pool is great, although crowded at times (But what pool isnt during the summer). THe pool gets sun all day and was a great way to spend our afternoons. THe hotel is located within walking distance to anything you wanted to do in Cincinnati. If we return, we will definitely stay there again.
Not bad, but definitely not the best.
Got the room for one night through an online anonymous auction site for one third the rack discount rate. The hotel appeared to be clean and well-appointed. The wife and I were on the top floor, and the wind noise (it was rather windy that night) was so loud it drowned out the TV. We could also hear any noise made in the common areas of the entire florr quite easily, which made for a restless night's (lack of) sleep. The room was small but pleasant otherwise. Valet parking (the only real option unless you want to walk two blocks to the public garage) was $18 and it took 40 minutes for us to get our car the next (Sunday) morning. Better that the motel I could have gotten for the same price, but I would have been sorely disappointed if I had paid full fare.
Big problems during my stay at Four Points Cincinnati Downtown.
Cincinnati seems to be a big convention city and the Four Points seemed to either be overbooked or couldn't handle the amount of guests. Only two elevators!!! Had to wait on line to get to the elevators and sometimes the wait was approximately a half-hour. I found this unacceptable, expecially since we could not (for some reason) use the stairways. The rooms were clean and serviceable though. But overall this hotel -- even though the price is low -- was a huge disappointment.
The stay was so good that I would definitely book into the same hotel again for my next visit to Cincy. he room is not only clean and cozy but was so tastefully decorated. Concierge service great! The staff were well-versedin giving directions and recommendations. Valet parking was fast and easy. Not to mention about the convenient location. I give it a 5-star!
Ugh! Stay at the Hyatt
I had a horrible time. I had to stay for business and they stated I could join their free points membership. When I joined, they would not include my points from my stay. They stated they do not include stays for more than 30 days. The room was always in need of repair and you have to make several calls to the front desk becuae they "forget." My car was scratched in their lot and they state they are not responsible although I have no access to my car until I "tip" the valets. Stay accross the street at the Hyatt!!!!
Good, Central Location
The hotel is in a very central location. We were visiting friends and family in Cincinnati and N. KY so it was nice being downtown. The valet parking was a great convenience; however, it would have been nice to know the $18 nightly charge up front. The room was very small. The bathroom was extremely small and didn't have a vent so the mirror fogged up whenver you took a shower. The tub drained awfully slow and if you like to take long showers you are going to stand in some water which was gross. The towels weren't very good either. Not soft at all.
The maid service was okay. We used our glasses on the first night and they never got replaced (stayed 3 nights). The coffee in the room was horrible but I think it was due to the water. For some reason, the water in this hotel tasted horrible (stick to bottled). We bought our hotel on hotwire so I got a really good deal (someone overshadowed by the add'l $18 parking fee) but I wouldn't choose it at regular rates at all.
There is so much to write I don't know where to begin. First of all, informing the guest that you will be charged $18 per night for parking would be an excellent start.
Secondly, I didn't expect preferential treatment but having accessability inside your very small rooms bath for a handicap child you could say I was very disappointed. Installing a couple of grab bars and a handshower unit does not make it handicap. Especially when the bath faucet is difficult to turn on and off for a healthy adult. Also, the difficulty of putting my child inside a standard bath instead of a barrier free unit was just as time consuming with getting him out.
When the so called handicap bath decided not to drain during the first shower, it took approx. 1 hr. and 45 mins. to transfer us to another room.
Upon moving our luggage to our new very small room, we noticed the dirty and stained carpet. The cover on the room heating and a/c unit was taken off and setting on the floor by the window. After making several local calls, at a dollar a call, to other hotel chains to check on availability, we came to the conclusion that our two night stay would be reduced to one. We would leave right after the Bengals-Titans game and even though it would be a 2-1/2 hour drive home, it would be well worth saving the money.
Even though the stay was less than desireable, my son was able to get an autograph from Bengals player Ray Jackson before we left the hotel. You could say this was the only highlight of the trip.
Was not worth the trip, time, or money
I booked my room on line, and when I arrived AT THE hotel, I was given a room without preferance. I was put on a smoking floor accross from a conference room, where walking and loud talking began at 6 am. The room was small and there was no ventilation. We had to put a drier to the mirror because opening the bathroom door didnt help de fog it. At 5:30 construction across the street started and it was so loud, we had to leave the room for quit time. The bathroom floor flooded when you took a shower, and the outline of where a tub mat used to be was visable under the pool of water collected from the dripping bath spout. You could hear the water from the neighboring room, turn on, run, and turn off. When I asked to moved to another room, I was told that there weren,t any available. I was not informed about manditory valet parking, or the 75 dollar a night deposit required upon check in. The room that was supposed to cost me only $45.00 a night ended up costing $78.00 a night. I was in town with my daughter so she could meet her father for the first time and it was the worst place I had ever stayed in. I was embarrased about the visit and there was no good impression made that week from either party. I would have done better in a motel8 or the hyatt.
Stayed at the Millennium Hotel Cincinnati in mid-July 2003, and found my accommodations very nice. The room was clean and well-maintained, room service was prompt, and there was even a 24-hr business center for guests downstairs which provided free internet access. The hotel is within walking distance of the Convention Center, and shopping in downtown Cincinnati (Carew Towers, Lazarus, Saks), a variety of restaurants, and entertainment. I'd highly recommend it.
Cincy is great!
My wife and I spent the Memorial Day weekend in Cincy and had a great time! The hotel was just bloks from both the Taste of Cincinnati festivities as well as the Reds' ballpark. We were able to walk to most of the places we wanted to visit.....Newport Aquarium and the Museum Center were just a few minutes' drive away. The hotel itself was great, although the rooms were a bit small. Still, the room we had was clean and comfortable. Front desk was a bit understaffed (or just didn't know what they were doing)....but valet parking was great.We had such a good time, we plan on visiting Cincy at least one more time this year....and this will be the hotel we stay at.
