Walking distance to Cincinnati

I booked through Travelocity. Upon check in, was told they were sold out of the river view room I had booked. After the explanation of 3rd party reservations booking up rooms that are not available, the situation was fixed. The view from the room was great.

Nice hotel within walking distance to Newport

Was pleasantly surprised with how nice and clean the hotel was. Very nice suite with comfortable bed. It was within walking distance to Newport Ky as well as downtown Cincinnati. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Also there was a wonderful view of downtown Cincinnati. Will definitely stay at Embassy Suites when we come to Cincinnati again.

Excellent, as always

I stay here 3 or 4 times a year.To me,the most import thing about a hotel stay is cleanliness.And that is something you never have to even consider,here.It is always very clean.But there are many more great things about staying here-the 2 room suite set-up,the free drinks and snacks in the evening,the best free breakfast at any hotel I've stayed at,and a staff that is nice and helpful.Everytime I come here I always think that I'd really like to live here,lol.

Disgusting! Do not stay here!

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything! CLEAN!! Really clean, not just a quick once over.
Location: Trolley for a buck to Cincinnati. Stay in Cincinnati, like night and day from Covington.
Smelly, filthy hotel. Everything (sofa, chairs, carpet) was damp and reeked of mold. All common area surfaces were sticky (tables, chairs, floors). Everything needs to be powerwashed with a disinfectant!

Tween nightmare

Pros: Free breakfast
Cons: Noisy
My family attempted to spend a night in Cincinnati and visit Newport on the levy. We stayed at the Embassy Suites in Covington. Service and accomodations fine, but young girl dance competition was in town the same night. Open air design of the hotel led to little girls running and screaming in the hallways until almost midnight. We talked to adult chaperones who (beer in hand) replied "I guess you picked a bad night to stay here". Maybe so, but noise still made it difficult to have a good time. We tried to watch "Life of Pi" but couldn't really hear it. Staff was courteous, except for a cleaning lady who walked in without walking on my wife when she was changing. Another knocked on the door at 8:00am to clean. The morning buffet was delicious, but the girls were beyond their parents control.

A very welcoming hotel, perfectly located

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
From the begining to the end of our stay, I felt extremely well welcomed and helped by the hotel staff, without exeption. Everyone working here has been tremendously kind and helpful. The room was perfectly clean and the bed extremely comfortable. In fact, we had booked for three nights and ended up staying an entire week. I guess this says it all. I would definately recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Cincinnati, since I am enthrilled with our stay.
