    Stay @ the Blu Hotel in Cincinnati

    The room smelled like the walls had been recently painted. There was no wall decorations. The carpet was vacuumed but terribly stained. Walls were thin where you could hear activity at the front desk as well as the staff talking. Lastly the sound volume from the TV was (very low) and there was a delay when switching channels. I would not recommend staying @ this hotel.

    Good, not great.

    Decent and clean. Clearly recently renovated but cut corners on refresh. No daily cleaning service and breakfast options were disappointing.

    Our stay was great!

    Our stay was great! Bed and room very comfortable. Nice breakfast bar. If you want hot fresh omelette and sausage get there before nine on weekday.

    Would stay again, but improvements could be made

    The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and spacious. However, there were some stained spots on the carpet and some cracking paint, and the wifi access point was dangling by it's ethernet cable. The service was great and the price was good, but the finer details of the room were not great. If stay again, without hesitation, but there are better places around, too.

    Not what we expected

    We had booked a five-day state at The Blu Hotel, but after the first day we were quite disappointed. The entire time we were there, no cleaning service was done to our room; we had to ask for clean towels at the front desk. Due to Covid, breakfast was sparse; the only warm items were cheese omelets and sausage patties every single day. Our bed was very comfortable, though.

    Perfect Stay

    Very accommodating. They were concerned with giving good hot breakfasts (not on the steam table forever). They were concerned about meeting our special needs (wheelchair). Room was spacious, convenient.

    Not the greatest

    The carpet needed to be deep cleaned, there were stains. One of the lamps did not work, but it was no big deal since there were other lighting options.
