Opened in 1931, the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza is a National Historic Landmark and a superbly restored example of the era’s French art deco design, with rosewood paneling and ceiling murals in the lobby and common spaces.

Rooms are elegantly appointed with crisp white linens, dark wood furnishings and high ceilings in many rooms. All rooms include free Wi-Fi, minifridges, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and work desks. For additional comfort, guests can upgrade to rooms or suites with seating areas, whirlpool tubs and city views.

AAA has awarded its prestigious 5-Diamond rating to the hotel’s Orchids at Palm Court restaurant. A two-story Romanesque mural watches over the lobby bar, which serves cocktails daily and features live jazz on weekend evenings. Guests also have access to the hotel’s heated indoor pool and the 24-hour fitness center.

We had a great time at a beautiful old hotel in downtown Cincinnati. And the Blink Festival was amazing! Great Hilton service in beautiful surroundings. Common areas are amazing. Rooms are kind of boring.

We love Travel Zoo and have used you many times for travel. This is no reflection on Travel Zoo. Also, I really can't rate your above questions accurately since I was not able to stay there and did not get a room. Sorry.

When we arrived at the hotel we were told they did not have a room for us as they had a water leak and had to take rooms out of service. When I saw people on each side of me checking in and getting their room keys I questioned why there was not a room for us and was told that since we paid a lower rate through Travel Zoo we were bumped first. It was beyond embarrassing and was handled very poorly. I asked the manager "So let me get this straight, since we paid a lower rate we were bumped before others paying a higher rate?", and he said "yes, that is how we determine who we will bump". He said they had already arranged for us to stay at another Hilton property four blocks away. We had no say in where we stayed or really any choice at that point as we had plans for the evening - which were delayed a couple hours due to this mess. What a joke! I will never stay at this hotel again!

Lovely, Art Deco hotel. Convenient to all sights we wanted to see. A great gathering place for all family members who joined us. Restaurant excellent too.

The Hotel is beautiful but the supervisor I spoke when they called to tell me they had to move my reservation was very unsympathetic and just very matter of fact.

At the last minute ( 3:00) I got a call from the hotel and they said they had to move us to another hotel (Hampton Inn) because they had trouble with some of the rooms . We said it was an inconvenience because we were with a group. I asked them why they didn’t know this earlier in the day and why they choose me to be the one who had to move...they said it was because we paid a lower rate for our room... When I told the supervisor that I was very disappointed , he said that the decision was made to move us and that he was sorry (which he wasn’t). We then cancelled!! It makes me question booking through third party companies that offer discounts in the future because if there is a problem and they see that you paid less for the room,you will be the first one to be affected. I don’t know the true reason for what happened- whether they overbooked rooms or if they truly had problems with some of the rooms but I was truly disappointed. The Hampton Inn is nowhere the same experience as the Netherland Hilton!
