I am leaving Frigid Cincinnati for the warmer climate of the Philippines. I hope to visit our Good Works Projects which are helping build the damaged areas from the recent Typhoon. I plan to speak in Manila and Davao for services before returning ...
Drove from Waterloo, across the border and to Cincinnati in 8hrs. Nice drive with a mixture of music (galaxie 500, new sun kil moon benji album & bruce springsteen) podcasts (radiolab, new yorker short, the dissolve and a boogie nights q&a) and started the history lecture series. Cincinnati is nice and quiet, sparcely populated like Buffalo but by a river. Ate lunch and meditated briefly by a quiet riverside park. About to take off for ...
... a decent place to stay and grab a birthday meal later, we decided to keep it classy and grab a spot of dinner at White Castle followed by a magnificent slumber at the Super 8! Gladly, we left free and clear of bed bugs. ps. When White Castle workers tell you not to stay at 4 different hotels, you listen... they didn't mention the Super 8, good enough for ...
Today I drove into Cincinnati and spent the day with my old friend Matt and his girlfriend Kasey. First Matt and I went to Climb Time for some bouldering and we even played ping-pong! After that we met Kasey at the Madtree brewery for a beer, a tour, and some bag toss. It was founded by three P&G employees, where both Matt and Kasey work. After that we went to a high point in Kentucky and got an amazing scenic view ...
My second game which I started off at a tailgate party. It started early, in the rain, with beer and lots of BBQ! There were games, photos, jäger bombs and more beer! Good times were had by all. The weather cooperated and the rain left at least an hour before game time. Seats were up in section 336 which is REALLY freaking high but still offers amazing views of both the stadium ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Cincinnati
Very very nice hotel. One of the best priceline deals I've ever received. Would have loved to stay all week.
My now husband and I selected the Westin for our wedding reception and were thrilled with the results. The staff was wonderful - and went well out of their way to make it a special night for us as well as our guests. The rooms were lovely (gotta love that heavenly bed!) and clean. From the front desk to the chef to the event coordinator everything was wonderful. Excellent view of the square - and a Starbucks is just around the corner. Opt to park your own car under the square or hotel.
My husband and I was simply looking for a weekend away to celebrate our anniversary. I spoke to the first representative that quoted me a price on a weekend package. I informed her that I would call back in a few hours. When I called later that day to the make reservation for the weekend package and ask the representative what all did the package include and to make sure the room was non-smoking. The representative act as if to answer my questions and concerns was inconvient. she was extremely rude and very rushed over the phone. She quoted a hirer price for the same package. Then responded "Do you want it or not". Well, needless to say the answer was "not". The representative responded "O.K. " and hung the phone. When I called back to speak to a supervisor, the service was no better. She informed me that she was uanable to honor the original quote or request and that she was sorry for how the previous representative spoke to me. But she could take down my credit card information and book into the hotel. I passed on the poor attempt at guess service. The way I see it, before I was able to step my foot in the Westin Hotels front door. I was mislead, treated very rude, made aware that they are honorable and that all they was interested in was my credit card information. Some first impression. But I'm glad I found out before I wasted my money.
We enjoyed our stay at the Westin in December 2003. We had a very clean room overlooking fountain square. The Westin is in the heart of the city and close to everything. And the heavenly bed and shower were wonderful. Overall, I would definately stay here again!
My husband and I made reservations for our wedding night at the Westin downtown Cincinnati. The room was guaranteed with a credit card and we told them of our planned late arrival time ( about Midnight) due to an evening wedding and subsequent reception. When we arrived, still in wedding attire (it was after midnight at that point) the front desk clerk ducks behind an open door and the next thing we hear is LAUGHING!!! She then comes back out, the night manager (we assume) quickly bolts out through the door and leaves the front desk, and the clerk, without talking to us starts calling other hotels, asking for an available room. After my husband asked politely, then more sternly as he kept getting ignored, what the problem was, we were finally told that our room was given away, because we had a local address and there was a red's game in town. "and if we would quit interrupting her, as she was trying to find us a room." The best offer she could make us was a room at a super 8 in northern cincinnati, over 30 minutes away.
My friends and I stayed at the Westin on 12/13/03. We all loved it.
Great View of Fountain Square
We enjoyed our view of "Fountain Square." and most of all our "Heavenly Bed". Westin staff were helpful and friendly. We just happened to book our room the weekend of Oktoberfest so we were right in the heart of all the action. Good in-room "Starbucks" coffee too!
Westin was excellent!
We stayed at the Westin in Cincinnati and were impressed with all aspects of this hotel. The check in was easy and polite, the room was clean and very luxurious (great beds!), and the health club was first rate. Very quiet floor at night and great service made this a hotel we'll return to.
Beautiful Hotel, Customer Service Bad
When we arrived at 5:00 PM, the hotel was not prepared to handle incoming guests. While checking in, we were told that rooms were not ready and had to wait. the guests before us had requested a late checkout. This was at 5:00 in the afternoon! The customer next to us, was checked in no problem since he was a preferred guest. (To become a preferred guest you have to sign up on their web site at no cost). After notifying the staff we had somewhere to go and some persistence, we were given a room. But the rest of my party did not have the same luck. While other people were bheing checked in, they were left in the cold. You would think that late checkout didn't mean late afternoon! Otherwise the heavenly bed they market was just that and the rooms were very comfortable.
