It was just OK

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Andrew Q. Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

It was OK but underwhelming. Decor needs attention/refresh. Shower area & head showed evidence of mold. Bed sheets were dirty on arrival although replaced the 2nd day. Food was OK but nothing special. Breakfast was very very slow. Check in and out was quick and staff were friendly and pleasant.

Natalie & Mike (front desk) were absolutely great! They were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable; even gave me great suggestions for food & fun & exploration around town when I asked. They were also able to provide good street directions both for work and for food/fun destinations. Having good & friendly people to talk to and rely on is what makes places great, as far as I’m concerned Room was great. And the valet team was fast & always available. Great thanks!!!

Thank you for the excellent review John! We are incredibly happy that you enjoyed your stay and will be sure to pass your feedback along to our team. See you again next time! Best, Carissa Chandler Front Office Manager

Traffic noise unbearable

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Lauren R. Solo - Confirmed reviews ALL

My husband booked a hotel stay for me for Mother’s Day to enjoy some quiet as we have 3 young kids. I arrived around 7pm and enjoyed a great meal from metropole in my room. I went to bed around 10pm and despite an extra fan, I knew by 11pm I would not be able to sleep well. The amount of cars and motorcycles driving by revving their engines was unbearable to sleep. Sadly, I had to check out at 11pm and drive home. It was a really unfortunate experience. I spoke with 2 front desk attendants and neither offered any help. I will not be staying here again not recommending this hotel to family or friends.

Dear Lauren, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the 21c Museum Hotel Cincinnati. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. While our central Downtown location certainly has its perks, we understand that city traffic can sometimes negatively impact our guests. Regardless, if you are ever back at the hotel, please reach out to us directly and we will ensure you are placed in a room on the quieter side of our building! Sincerely, Carissa Chandler Front Office Manager

Most likely our last stay

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Jen H. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

I have really loved this hotel in the past, but I think our most recent stay will be our last. Between the poor water pressure, the lack of hot water, the hotel bar's "late" service closing before 11pm, an empty mini bar, and the strange brown stains on the carpet in our room, I think we could stay somewhere else for much cheaper and have a nicer experience.

Jen, We appreciate your feedback and apologize that your stay did not live up to our expectations here at 21c. We are constantly working to improve our processes to ensure our guests are provided clean and comfortable accommodations. Your feedback is valuable in doing so. I am happy to hear that Natalie was able to provide exemplary service. We will make sure your kind words are passed along to her! Thank you for choosing to stay with us. Sincerely, Carissa Chandler Front Office Manager
