When The Cincinnatian Hotel first opened in 1882, it became an instant landmark on the downtown cityscape. Designed by Samuel Hannaford and opened 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.

Over a century later, The Cincinnatian has seen numerous renovations and was reopened in 2018 as part of the Curio Collection by Hilton. The now 148 guest rooms offer modern amenities sought after by today’s traveler while highlighting many features of the original building. The grand walnut and marble staircase can be found reaching from lobby to the eight floor and original brick is exposed in both Brick & Mortar Gastropub and Hannaford Market.
