Verified Reviews of Best Western Plus Cincinnati Riverfront Downtown Area

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Wedding Stay"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel management was wonderful and very kind to our out of town guests. I would have rated higher but they were under construction and it caused frustration for many guests as it started early and occurred all weekend. The front door was not accessible until the end of the weekend.
(Meeting planner, booked 90 rooms), from US flag
07-Nov-2016 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Nov 04 to Mon Nov 07 2016 at a $125.00 group rate.
"Outstanding"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We were in town for a baseball tournament in Mason, Ohio. The drive was far but compared to the Los Angeles commute that we make daily, the ride was a peaceful 20 to 25 minutes of moving traffic. The hotel is right on the river and cheaper that its counterparts across the Ohio.
(Group coordinator, booked 15 rooms), from US flag
07-Jun-2015 Verified Review, stayed from Mon May 18 to Sat May 23 2015 at a $109.00 group rate (25% discount).
Response from Management on 09-Jun-2015:
Hi Jason,Thanks so much for taking the time to provide feedback. We really appreciate that you chose us to host and really enjoyed having the team stay with us. What a nice group! We hope you'll visit us again soon.
