The Cincinnatian Hotel

The Cincinnatian Hotel in CincinnatiThe Cincinnatian Hotel in Cincinnati

Overview

When the Cincinnatian Hotel first opened in 1882, it became an instant landmark on the downtown cityscape. Known as the Palace Hotel, the eight-story French Second Empire structure was the tallest in Cincinnati, with a grand walnut-and-marble staircase, a mansard roof, incandescent lighting, elevators and 300 guest rooms. More than 100 years and $25 million later, the building was reborn, opening in 1987 as the city’s only small boutique hotel; the number of rooms dropped to 146 luxurious, spacious suites and a soaring, eight-story atrium topped with a vast skylight that serves as the Cincinnatian’s focal point.

Despite the extensive renovation, the hotel still reflects original flavor of the Palace Hotel. Witness the Cricket Lounge (formerly the Palace Hotel’s restaurant), which displays the original safe from the Palace Hotel, and the artfully appointing guest suites with oversized Roman bathtubs and granite showers. The hotel also embraces all the modern amenities required by guests looking to retreat into the atmosphere of the past without sacrificing the present, including high-speed Internet access, a restaurant, full health and fitness facilities and, perhaps most importantly, easy access to all of downtown Cincinnati from an address well-respected for more than a century.

The 300-room Palace Hotel was the tallest building in the city and had hitching posts outside its fashionable entrance.
