Where to stay in Cincinnati

Exploring Cincinnati

Cuddled by the Ohio River, Cincinnati sits on the border between north and south - appropriate for a traditional city that isn't afraid to look to the future. The bustling bars of the Banks development provides a modern, stylish place to sip a refreshing beer before the big game, while the historic Italian renaissance architecture that lines the streets of the Over-the-Rhine district, will appeal to the traditionalists. Cincinnati tends to lead where others follow, so don't be surprised if you feel a sense of déjà vu while climbing the towers of the iconic John A. Roebling suspension bridge - New York's Brooklyn Bridge was heavily inspired by it.

Things to see

The best views of Cincinnati can be found while drifting along the winding Ohio River, with the neon-lit skyline looking down on you, as you float below the city's famous bridges. As night falls, you can enjoy a fine dining experience, chewing juicy sirloin steak as the boat's paddlewheel gently churns the water behind you. For something a little more high-octane, throw your hands in the air and leave your stomach behind as you plunge down a terrifying rollercoaster, or make a splash torpedoing down a wild waterslide at the Kings Island amusement park. Afterwards, a trip to Newport Aquarium will calm any frayed nerves but - if you're still a little on edge - avoid the shark tunnel, where stealthy tiger sharks will circle inches above your head. Instead, get to know the cute penguins, or get lost staring at hypnotic jellyfish, as they pulse rhythmically through the water.

Hotels in Cincinnati

Cincinnati's top hotels clamor for a spot by the river, offering views out over to Kentucky. Swim surrounded by high-rise buildings in one of the warm roof-top pools offered by luxury Cincinnati hotels, or enjoy the peace and quiet of a homely rustic lodge, complete with sofa and dining table. Mid-range hotels offer a great location, without skimping on the essentials like free WiFi, minibar, or cable TV. Most of the city's hotels also have their own restaurants attached, where you can fill up on delicious BBQ ribs, or try Cincinnati's famous sweet and spicy chili.

Where to stay

Most people choose to stay in the downtown area, which thrives with life - especially when the Bengals or Reds are in town, playing a game at Paul Brown Stadium or the Great American Ball Park. Blue Ash is a quieter, leafier place to stay and ideal for families who'd rather relax away from the bustling bars and restaurants. That's not to say it can't get lively, however. Stay for the July 4 celebrations, and you'll experience all the bangs, claps and flashes of one of the biggest firework displays in Ohio during the climax of the Red, White and Blue Ash festival.

How to get to Cincinnati

Visitors can fly into Greater Cincinnati Airport from destinations across the world, and the airport is easily linked to the city center by the 2X Airport Express bus. Car rental is available from within the terminal building, and it takes around 15 minutes to drive into downtown. It's possible to walk between most of the attractions in the city center, and the reliable bus service will help you to explore further afield if you don't have a car during your stay.
