When it opened in 1882, the Palace Hotel quickly became a jewel in the Queen City’s crown. A stunning French Second Empire structure, it showcased opulent features such as a grand walnut and marble staircase and novelties such as elevators and incandescent lighting. Renamed The Cincinnatian Hotel in 1951, this local landmark faced the possibility of demolition in the early 1980s; however, it was spared and underwent a $25 million renovation that included a soaring eight-story, sky-lit atrium. In 1987, 105 years after its premiere, the hotel reopened as a luxury hotel, combining Old World charm with contemporary flair.
