Urban Delight

4.6 on July 15, 2014

Our children gave us a gift certificate to stay at the Symphony Hotel. It was a very enjoyable experience. The location, accommodations and food were all very much to our liking. We will likely stay again.

Best kept secret in cincinnati

The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The bar and restaurant were awesome, they are very creative with the food choices. The hostess ( Colleen) and staff were very friendly and made us feel at home. The location is convenient. We will definitely be back next time we are in Cincinnati.

Great service, terrible go-between

4.4 on October 16, 2013

I had to arrive early but the bed and breakfast association never left my message. Luckily Chef Chris was fantastic and showed us our room and where to park. Despite the best efforts of the Inn to contact me that go-between has awful service. Luckily the hotel is wonderful if a bit in need of updates upstairs in the hall and I'd love to stay again.

Wonderful caretakers/inn-keepers and beautiful building.

Paramount OTR Experience

Conveniently located less than a block from the new Washington Park, the Symphony Hotel is a landmark in the new, bustling Over The Rhine. Their rooms are fantastic and the food is unparalleled. You can bet I'll be back soon. If you haven't been yet, you're missing out.

Wonderful Weekend!

We really enjoyed our stay at Symphony. Our room was very comfortable, the food was delicious, and we loved being so close to the park! Colleen and Chef Chris were lovely and very helpful/friendly with recommendations. Overall, it's a really unique, special place and we'll definitely be coming back!

A unique and delightful find!

I stayed here when I was in town for the Flying Pig Marathon and absolutely loved it! The rooms are very charming and super clean. The staff is exceptionally friendly and accomodating. I felt quite "at home". I did not get to enjoy their dinner, since I usually eat pretty simply before a race, but it smelled amazing. I did have brunch the next day and it was DELICIOUS! Don't believe people who may tell you the area is sketchy or dangerous. I am a small, young, female and was travelling alone and I still felt totally comfortable walking around Cincy exploring. Beds were super comfy and there is a nice shared patio at the hotel too. Overall--highly recommended! If I am ever in Cincy again I will stay here.

Best Kept Secret in Over-the-Rhine (Downtown, Cincinnati, OH)

4.8 on May 05, 2013

My wife and I were looking for a stay-cation and had walked by the Symphony Hotel on numerous occasions. This time we made a reservation, at a reasonable rate for a downtown hotel, and were taken aback by the friendliness of the staff, amenities in the room, and overall quality of food and beverage. We will definitely be coming back - and telling all of our friends - about this best kept secret!

BEST stay away from home EVER

5 on April 09, 2013

So much character in this home away from home. It was so much more than we expected. The people are so down to earth and friendly, Colleen even let me borrow nail polish remover, thank goodness! (a life or death matter) Tim, Chef Chris, everyone was so warm form the time we got there and were allowed an early check in to the to our last hours lounging in the beautiful dinning room by open french doors, it was like a dream:) and we loved the location, walking distance to Vine st. ok, one more thing... THE FOOD is amazing. from brunch to dinner..amazing.

A gem

Tim phoned me a couple of days ahead of my arrival to check in on my needs. When I got in late from Texas he fixed dinner for me complete with great conversation. Colleen and I chatted in the morning while Tim made breakfast. The room was excellent. The folks and the place are good for the soul - not many hotel experiences make you feel good down to your bones. Highly recommended. - Dave
