Travel Blogs from Cincinnati
We are home now (midnight last night) from our grand, and I do mean GRAND Alaskan adventure. I'm sorry we didn't blog much while we were gone. When we weren't having a TON of fun, we were exhausted and sleeping or we didn't have Internet access! The weather was (unusual ...
Well, Gene and I made it to the airport and are waiting for our flight to board. My sister Cheryl picked us up at home and brought us here and she will get us when we arrive back to Cincy. We found out we could check in 2 bags for free. That was a bonus, so we each have just 1 carry on. We weighed our bags at home. Good thing we did because my bag weighed 53 lbs and Gene's was 47 lbs.

Gene and I look forward to connecting with our many Chinese friends who teach English at various schools in the area. Through my blog I hope you learn some things about China and its culture as I relate my experiences to you as an English teacher. Check me out. ...
This time next week we'll be at the airport ready to begin our "Great Alaskan Adventure". We are packin', packin' and packin' & trying to figure out what to take on the land tour and what to take on the ship tour. But we are so excited we can hardly see straight! Be talkin' to you soon.

Historical Traveler Reviews Garfield Suites Hotel Cincinnati
My husband and I along with another couple were looking for a hotel close to downtown Cincinnati for a weekend conference trip. We found the Garfield Suites Hotel on the internet and decided to take a chance. We were extremely pleased with our choice!
My family and I stayed one night at the Garfield Suites for a weekend getaway. The rooms here are very large, but not at all modern. The decor in our room (14th floor) greatly needed updating, as did the television in the bedroom. We did not use the kitchen appliances, but they were clearly dated. The bathroom was not any larger than in a budget motel, but was manageable for three people. Its age also showed in the overall cleanliness - we'd give that a 6.5 out of 10 - barely passing.
A group of us recently stayed at the Garfield Suites for a weekend getaway. We reserved a two bedroom suite. The room is huge!!! It has two bedrooms plus a pull out sofa. We easily fit six adults into the room. The rate was excellent ($120).
The facilities were clean and in good shape. Our suite came with a balcony. It had a great view of the Cincinnati skyline.
The only bad thing about this hotel is the long walk from the parking garage to the lobby. All in all, we greatly enjoyed our stay. I would absolutely stay here again.
Older Hotel, but Nice
The Garfield Suites are great if you have a group of people and don't want to spend a ton of money. I usually stay there when I am traveling with several women, as they have 2 full baths and it is much cheaper than getting 2 rooms at another hotel. The location is pretty decent too.

Great location...Great value!
Stayed Dec. 27-28 in a 2-BR for only $79 per night. This is not a 4-star hotel, but very, very nice and clean and located in the heart of Cincy. Parking...no problem, just go to the city lot up the street for $5 a night and it's even connected to the hotel. My family has stayed at the swankier hotels in downtown Cincy, but to get the privacy of two bedrooms (or one BR and let the kids stay on the fold-out LR sofa), this is the best deal around. I'll keep an eye out for Internet bargains...we found ours at Travelicity...and will return to the Garfield Suites.
I stayed in a one bedroom suite this past weekend paying $69 per night. The suite contained a large, nicely furnished living room/dining room, a full kitchen including dishwasher, a separate bedroom with queen sized bed and exceptionally large closet, and a bathroom that was rather small considering the total size of the suite. The living room and bedroom both had a television and telephone and a free high speed Internet connection was provided on the living room desk.
Don't judge a book by its cover
At first you think about walking out , right when you arrive . Older looking , needs remodeled , cleaned up . Not on the best side of town . After saying all this , the rooms are a good value, large and has nice kitchen .Has a nice gym to work out in . The people are very helpful and nice . With some improvements this hotel could be 4 star . We are staying here again .
We stayed at The Garfield August 8 and 9, 2003, and the suite was okay, but I was completely shocked at the price of valet. I was chaged $78 and my car never left the garage. I asked for consideration, but the front desk was not interested in talking to me about the price.
Interestly, I stayed at another downtown hotel just two weeks later and was charged $12 a night for valet. Guess where I be staying next time....
GREAT PLACE TO STAY
My husband and I and another couple have been staying here several times for the last couple of years. We have had nothing but good service and a wonderful time. Highly recommend.
In Cincinatti, come here!!!
All-around very good hotel.
