Room felt cramped, but it's got a city footprint so you have to figure space is limited. King size bed dominated the room but it was very comfortable though I can't figure out why these W-Hotel wannabes use tiny 12x12 pillows in an otherwise fine accommodation. Felt like my head was on a hard cover book.
To be fair, the hotel is in a great location. Things to do and see within short walk distance. Did not dine at Metropole because the millennial menu seemed to be a mish mash of science experiment ingredients thrown together for a voila eating "experience". I like my food to be identifiable. We dined at Nicola's Restaurant instead.
Saturday night crowd of 20 something's line the streets for the music and the to-be-seen scene. Female:male about 10:1. Music shuts down at midnight so what was very audible from a 4th floor room did not interrupt sleep.
Some street vagrants seen but did not feel dangerous as I was with my 6ft hubs. I would stay here again, but would bring my pillow from home.

We stayed at the Hilton Netherland for the first time while attending the western and southern tennis tournament finals weekend. The room rate was very reasonable. We got an advertised special for a non refundable room rate. You can self park for only $15 a day just around the corner. The hotel is beautifully restored in stunning Art Deco. The double room was very clean and comfortable with plenty of space. The bathroom although small was updated and very clean. We were given a choice of a room with a river or fountain view and the river room choice had a stunning view especially at night with the bridge lit up over the river. It is in the heart of downtown close to the fountain square and many restaurants. The Palm dining room and bar downstairs are classic Art Deco. The restaurant is five star. The bar featured a live jazz band and rocked as a meeting place on the weekend for wedding guests and baseball fans. We will definitely return for another memorable stay.
Very nice hotel that is close to downtown sites. (1.5 blocks from Fountain Square, close to Carew tower etc).
In and out privileges with the valet parking was a great help. ($25 a day but you can come and go as needed).
The evening "meet and greet" was great. M-Thurs. 6pm till 8pm they have free beer and wine with a nice dinner buffet. The buffet had only one selection each evening (it changes daily) but for a free meal it was really very good.
The breakfast buffet was really great as well with many choices.
Very large and clean suite was beyond our expectations.
Cincinnati is a major sports town. The Cincinnati Reds (baseball) play at the Great American Ballpark and the Cincinnati Bengals (football) play at Paul Brown Stadium. An architecturally significant city, Carew Tower—an example of French art deco—is Cincinnati's tallest building. The Cincinnati Art Museum houses a fascinating collection of works from all over the world.
