I find this hotel with its whimsical yellow plastic penguins, numerous pictures of camels and "breathing chandelier" a fun-loving experience.
AAA Inspector Notes
Public areas have permanent and rotating exhibits of contemporary art, much of which is self-consciously avant-garde. Rooms have a clean, minimalist luxury décor. Bathrooms have Rookwood tile showers. The hotel has a playful aura. Elevator landings have art vitrines with each floor having a unique exhibit. Electric yellow penguins populate public areas and have even been known to move into guest rooms. A counterpoint to all these modern features may be found in the corner suites, which are adorned with window blinds that feature historic daguerreotypes of the 19th century Cincinnati waterfront. Another traditional feature may be found in the restaurant, which has an impressive flaming brick hearth that would have been a perfect feature for a 19th century Ohio stagecoach tavern. After dinner, go up to the rooftop bar for drinks and a splendid view of downtown Cincinnati. You will not be bored in this hotel. Smoke free premises. 156 units. 10 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).
