Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Hotel Cincinnati Riverfront Covington
This location of the Radisson has an offering with which I was not familiar, called a "Double Compact" room. As the name implies, the room is a smaller version of the standard room, although it has all the standard features: 27" TV; armoire; desk with chair; and an arm chair. The main difference in ammenities was that the room only had one full size bed, which can be a tight squeeze for two adults. Iif you're interested in a view this is not the room for you, as they are all on the 2nd floor of the hotel and look out at the highway or rooftop of the ground floor. We had an air conditioning unit outside our window that was on 24/7, but it wasn't significantly louder than the units usually in any given hotel room. We weren't able to reserve a non-smoking room, but we requested and were given one. Overall a bit of a tight fit, but at half the price of a standard room ($49/night vs. $119/night on the Radisson website) this is one way to enjoy the atmosphere and service of a nicer hotel on a motel budget.
Okay - Fair Value
Location was good, room clean, service good. But windows need washing, noise from freeway if open balcony door, cable TV would fade in and out.
Would not stay again!
We stayed at the Radisson for one night. We were going to stay at the courtyard by marriott, but trip advisor said it was by a railroad track. The rooms are very tiny at the Radisson, probably because the hotel is round. It was not as clean as I would like. There was something, looked like mold, growing in the corner. Also they will not guarantee a non-smoking room, so the room smelled like smoke, covered up with some sort of nasty freshner. It is very noisy, it is right beside the highway, so you can hear big trucks all night long. The staff was very friendly but I would not stay here again.
I recently stayed at the Radisson in Covington and was very pleased with my stay. I arrived early and had to wait about 45 minutes for a clean room, which was fine since I hadn't requested early check-in. The guy at the front desk was very nice, periodically going up to check on the status of the rooms and when one was ready, he immediately let me know as he was walking off the elevator and apologized for my wait.
We booked a couple rooms here on Priceline for 70 dollars each. For that price, it was a good deal. When we checked in the clerk said "2 doubles smoking, right?" No, king non would be our choice..but with Priceline you get what you get. The clerk managed to get us that type of room on the seventh floor, however. Nice guy. The hotel was in good shape, the room was rather spacious if a little dated, but clean.It had a nice hair dryer, a frig, coffee maker and a heater fan in bathroom. We had a view of the back- Covington area and Interstate 71, not that great, but this was just a place to flop for the night.
I stayed in this hotel with my 11 year old daughter and niece and we loved it! The hotel was clean and very nice and the girls LOVED the pool! We had a room on the 11th floor overlooking downtown Cinci and the river and we really had fun standing out on the balcony enjoying the beautiful view! This is a great hotel and I would highly recommend staying there to anyone.
At the last minute I had to travel to Cincinnati for business, and the Radisson Riverfront had availability. Here are the positives, most of the staff is very friendly, there is a shuttle that costs $1.00 that you can take to all tourist attractions that stops right in front of the hotel, the restaurant on the 18th floor has devine food/great view of the city, wireless internet in the room is free, hotel shuttle to/from airport is free, the room was very basic, but clean.
My husband and I just returned from spending the weekend in Covington, Ky and we made reservations for the Radisson. Our room was located on the 12th floor with a view of the Bengals Stadium to the right of our balcony and I-75 to our left. Please keep in mind that this hotel has been around since 1976 (maybe longer), just owned by a different hotel chains in the past. Radisson has done a very good job in keeping this hotel in good taste.
We stayed at the Radisson on one night, items were stolen from our locked car in the parking lot.
Probably will stay there again.
Great hotel. Fantastic views of Cincinnati skyline
Arrived in Cincinnati to find most hotels fully booked or very expensive. This was because the Tall Stacks Ship racing event was in town. We saw the Radisson and decided to give it a try before driving on and out of Cincinnati. We were quoted a price of $199 + tax which was a bit too expensive for us but then the desk clerk told us we could stay for $99 if we only stayed one night. Perfect ! We requested a view of downtown Cincinnati and got it. The room was high up (14th floor) and had a balcony. The room was lovely and the views were unforgettable. The hotel is actually in Covington in Kentucky. What a great time we had there.
