Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza
The Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza is a true French Art Deco hotel masterpiece. Opened in 1931, the landmark hotel in Cincinnati was an integral part of the first multi-use complex in the United States. Described as a "city within a city," the complex featured an office tower, hotel, fully automated garage, shopping complex, and restaurants. Today, the hotel is the city's crown jewel.
The historic hotel's main lobby and mezzanine areas feature a half acre of rare Brazilian rosewood, extensive use of German silver, and a stylized Egyptian decor reinforced with delicate floral motifs. There are also exquisitely detailed frescoes, ceiling murals, an original Rookwood fountain with a pair of matching seahorses, and the refined Restaurants at Palm Court, which includes Orchids at Palm Court—voted as the top restaurant in Cincinnati (Zagat, 2011, 2012, and 2013) and “One of the Top 100 restaurants in the USA” (OpenTable, 2011, 2012, and 2013.)
Other areas not to be missed are the renowned Hall of Mirrors, modeled after the Palace of Versailles in Paris, the Continental Room, with striking floor-to-ceiling windows, gorgeous chandeliers and amazing frescoes of the four seasons, and the Pavillion Ballroom, originally the hotel’s nightclub.
Each of the updated 561 guestrooms and suites at the Art Deco hotel feature in-room safes and refrigerators, flat-screen televisions with expanded high-definition programming, wireless high-speed Internet access, new soft goods packing including seating, curtains, and matching box spring wrap, individual heating and air controls, and a work space that includes a five-point desk chair.
Centrally located in downtown Cincinnati, the hotel is within the Carew Tower shopping and dining complex and within four blocks of 90+ additional shops and restaurants. The hotel is also the anchor for the city's famous skywalk system, which connects to the Duke Energy Convention Center, businesses, shops, and restaurants. The historic hotel is adjacent to the heart of the city, the Fountain Square Entertainment District and within walking distance to The Banks, a new restaurant and urban green space destination on the banks of the Ohio River (just 4 blocks from the hotel), Paul Brown Stadium, Great American Ballpark, US Bank Arena and theaters.
The exquisite Hall of Mirrors is modeled after the Palace of Versailles.
