Verified Reviews of Cincinnati Radisson Riverfront

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Okay"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
All of the staff was very nice and professional.
(Meeting planner, booked 25 rooms), from US flag
14-Dec-2015 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Dec 12 to Sun Dec 13 2015 at a $100.00 group rate (37% discount).
"Awful"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
There was only one electrical outlet in the room that worked. The iron was so old it burnt through one of my shirts and we had to call the front desk three times within 45 minutes for someone to actually bring another one. The front desk was rude and extremely unhelpful. Despite being told we would have the hotel shuttle ready at a certain time to take us to our wedding reception, the shuttle was not there and we had to find another means of transportation. Will never stay here again when in Cincinnati.
(Group coordinator, booked 10 rooms), from US flag
21-Sep-2015 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Sep 19 to Sun Sep 20 2015 at a $139.00 group rate.
"Business Meeting"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Nice facility and friendly people. I would stay here again. They took care of any problems in a great manner and really cared. The breakfast buffet was very good. Did not have any other meals there except for a dinner in the rotating restaurant which was really cool. Several of the floors are being renovated and it will be really nice once it is all done. Shuttle stop is just down the street so for $1 you can go to a lot of places on both sides of the river.
(Group coordinator, booked 10 rooms), from US flag
15-Jun-2015 Verified Review, stayed from Tue Jun 09 to Wed Jun 10 2015 at a $119.00 group rate.
Response from Management on 18-Jun-2015:
To the comment of Kelly's not having any other meals is not a correct statement. We have our breakfast menu and regular menu for lunch and dinner.
"Nice Hotel, but Not Fabulous"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Very clean. We stayed on the top floor and had a river and city view. The view was outstanding! The staff were all very friendly! The restaurant downstairs was decent. We didn't eat at the top floor restaurant, but the view was awesome! The bed was okay, not great as far as being comfortable. They need to upgrade to new beds. The carpet was starting to fold up in our room. They need new carpet. They only had one movie channel. They should have pay per view at least, to give customers the option to buy a movie if they want. The pool and hot tub were great. The pool room had palm trees, which were real nice. The roof in the pool room was retractable. They said that as long as it wasn't raining, they would open it. It wasn't raining, and they didn't open it. It would have been better to have the roof open. it was partly sunny and hot out. Overall, nice hotel, not great, but decent. I would stay there again. Also, they had a free shuttle to Newport on the Levy and other near by places. That was a huge bonus! The driver was very nice, but drove very fast and crazy like. If I had my young child with me, I would not have liked her driving like that. Also, she was on her phone while she was driving. That should not be happening! Very dangerous and putting the hotel and us at risk!

"Fine for a One Night Business Stay"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Good parking and no hassle really. Just bad location by interstate.
