Pros: Breakfast, friendly staff, comfortable beds.
Cons: Cleanliness of bathroom.
Location: Location to cincy/newport was good but area right around the hotel was not the best, aka liquor store next door and not much else.
The area around the hotel is not the best (liquor store next door) but the hotel was fine. Our room was not a clean as I usually expect at a Hampton Inn. Especially the shower did not look like it was clean, had some mildew/mold in grout of the tile. However, the Staff was friendlty, beds were comfortable and breakfast was good. I would probably not stay there again since there are so many options in the area.

One night stand

Just stayed one night. Really enjoyed the river view. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The bed was OK for comfort. My husband said he felt like he was rolling toward the middle all night. Spring for the valet parking. Self parking ended up costing us the same amount we would have paid for valet. $10 each time we left the garage. Overall, we were very satisfied.

My stay at the Marriott hotel Rivercenter

Service was good the breakfast was good .... I did happen to glance the inside of my pillowcase When I was moving it around and saw yellow stains inside.... had me wondering if it was clean So I just tossed it in the chair didn't nd it anyway. kinda sucks paying for parking wasn't aware of that when I booked my room thankfully it was just one night. One other thing, they must have been hosting some kind a event but what ever it was we heard people talking & laughing all night I could barely sleep, we were on the 4th floor and boy that sound travels.

Overnight stay for concert

Excellent hotel in great location. (Only downside is all the traffic you have to deal with around the hotel). Plan your travel time accordingly. But as far as the hotel goes, it's beautiful. Self-parked which is $2/hr or $10 max per day. You can valet for $28. Check in went smoothly, although very quickly and we weren't really told about hotel amenities. (I do like the quick check-in, just letting others know if you have questions, ask). Room was very nice. Didn't have a fridge which surprised me although later I saw that you can request one. Only thing I didn't like was that the ESPN channels all would come on for about 10 seconds and then lose connection. And my girlfriend was surprised there was no exhaust fan in the bathroom so when I took a shower the mirror got all steamed up. Didn't get to check out the pool or fitness center as we were just in town for the night. Overall excellent hotel and highly recommend.

Very friendly staff, great hotel

The staff was extremely friendly, from the gentleman who checked us in to the woman who talked to us to check out-every one was wonderful to deal with. The hotel is gorgeous and clean. Would definitely return

Very confortable bed, great view

Loved this hotel. We had a great view of the river and the baseball park. and we actually walked to the game. We slept with the curtains open so we could see the lights of the city at night. We prepaid for the breakfast and were told when we got there that it was a buffet. I was a little disspointed until I saw the buffet-fresh omlettes, eggs, sausages, bacon, fruit, bagels-you get the idea. My only suggestion would be a makeup mirror in the bathroom and a light in the shower. It was a little dark once the heavy curtain was closed.

Pros: Close restaurants, close to mainstrass, accessible to the interstate, close to shopping centers and entertainment venues
Cons: No free Internet, parking should be a flat rate
I decided to book this hotel due to its location and value. The hotel was easy to find coming from the airport on I-75 North. Parking (Valet was $28.00 plus tip/ day) on your own was $10.00. However if you left a few times the same day, then you were charged for the time in the garage. The hotel itself was very good. Staff was helpful, room was nice and the place served good food.
