When it was built in 1882, the eight-floor Cincinnatian Hotel was the city’s tallest building. Today, it’s dwarfed by larger structures on all sides and offers no external views aside from a birds-eye perspective on the bustle of downtown street life. However, atrium rooms feature balconies overlooking the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel’s lobby and lounge with natural light streaming from skylights above. All of the suites have internal balconies, which offer such views and pleasantly muted thrum of the goings on in the lobby, Palace Restaurant and Cricket Lounge below. If a view of Cincinnati’s beautiful downtown skyline is on the agenda, grab “Welly” the London cab for a five-minute drive across the Ohio River and gaze upon the river, the historic Roebling Suspension Bridge, sports stadiums and skyscrapers beyond from the river bank. Or, take a two-block walk to the Carew Tower — an Art Deco gem — and head to its observation deck for a 360-degree perspective on the whole region.
