Rated 3 out of 5 by AC113 Don't Ship your Packages!!
I have stayed at SPG properties since 2009 and this by far was the worst experience. I had a package delivered to the hotel in advance for meetings. When I arrived the box was no where to be found. Each person I spoke to kept passing me to someone else to the point where they made it seem like it wasn't their business or that the box was shipped to the wrong location. The box ended up in another room and I wasn't able to use any of the items I needed at an event. The manager did try after me speaking to 3-5 people for over an hour but it wasn't until his involvment that he was able to figure out what to do.
At check-out they tried to smooth things over and offered me SPG points which never made it to my account.
Other than that the Westin is pretty basic and has what you need for business travel.
Some members of the valet staff also ask for tips which is unprofessional.
Sadly as a loyal SPG member when I visit Cincinnati I will NOT stay at this Westin again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by marylounyc Noise was a deal breaker
I specifically asked for a quiet room and got a room overlooking the fountain on the 16th floor. But the traffic did not stop until midnight and I could not get any sleep. Noise is a deal breaker for me - especially when I specifically asked for a quiet room. The nice gym, furniture, lobby, free apples - frankly - I could not care less if I can't get a good night sleep...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cjcox2 Very pleased!
Check in and valet staff were friendly and efficient and our room was very clean and comfortable. My girlfriend and I are night owls, and they happily allowed us a late 1:00pm check out at no charge. We had a great stay and the next time we're in Cincinnati, this hotel will be our first choice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sadie42839 Disappointing for a Westin
I stayed here in February and was disappointed with staff recognition of SPG status- in the sense that there was literally none. I was offered an upgrade to a "enhanced room" and then told it would cost $30. In fact, the only reason I chose this hotel was because it was an SPG property.
Once I got into bed, I found a giant hair in my bed. In general the hotel looked like it could use a facelift.
Finally, I wrote the manager directly several weeks ago and was disappointed to not get a reply. I'd go elsewhere if you're looking for a hotel in Cinci.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Renee33 Clean and Comfortable
Our room was so clean and comfortable. We loved the views of downtown and the river. We also really enjoyed the rain shower shower head, very relaxing!! The mini fridge in the room was a lifesaver for us. We had brought a lot of perishable food since we were here for a dance convention and it was nice to never worry if something had spoiled. We would definitely stay here again especially since it's within walking distance to many great restaurants.

Rated 2 out of 5 by wrightbmjr Excellent Hotel - Rude Security
Great Hotel. Great Staff. Horribly rude security. I could fill a page, explaining the rudeness I experienced from one Security guard from the bank in the same plaza adjacent to the Westin. I was just trying to see what time donut shop opened for my son. I was 10 feet away from the shop when I was stopped. "Excuse me sir, can I help you". I'm just checking to see when they open. In a loud rude voice... "They are not open on weekends in a tone like I should already know that. If I'm not to approach that area it needs to be marked. And from one security guard in the hotel elevator who looked at me like I was suspicious just because I had misplaced my key card. He just glared at me. Unwilling to even make small talk. Extremely unnerving. I am not one to complain but With much thought I feel the need to say... security at this location borders on scary. No Joke. Pay your $250 a night and go to bed is the message I received.
