    « tired »

    the hotel is tired and a bit funky. moving buffalo head in lobby, other stuffed animals in lobby. an elizabethan theme is played in other parts of the hotel. i think it is not great value. we stay there as it is close to family member's residence.

    « Only place to stay in Cinci »

    They are often booked so reserve early. Get the King suite. Awesome jacuzzi tub. It's the only place we will stay now. The Staff is always over the top great. Restaurant is superb also. Breakfast is great. Eggs Benedict. Love the Shepards Pie

    « Romance »

    A weekend get away with my bf ... We loved it very much... The room was a little different than what was in the pictures online though but we still loved the room.... The Bed is wonderful we slept very well

    « You will absolutely not be disappointed »

    I chose this hotel because of the 'olde-world' feel. Not only did I get that but the staff - every single one of them - was friendly and welcoming. The area was beautiful and felt safe. The room was clean and inviting, and the bed is simply amazing. It's an understatement to say that I didnt want to leave. I honestly cannot imagine having a better experience. If you will be in Mariemont for anything, do yourself a favor and book your stay HERE.

    « Quaint and fashionable, catches Mariemont's Essence »

    Some interesting and comfortable features like the hidden television behind the framed picture, and electric fireplace make up the the somewhat dated decor of the rooms. Large rooms are trimmed out with nice bath fixtures, damask sheers, and comfortable foam beds that insure your body a good night's rest. The hotel had an issue with it's hot water but it was quickly corrected. One negative was the lack of a night manager on duty. Location is excellent with nice restaurant and movie theatre close by. Free parking.

    « Neat »

    This was really a neat place to stay. The area is an old neighborhood which is really nice. There are nice restaurants nearby. This is kind of a rural feeling area. You don't feel like you are in a big city. Really peaceful.

    « Romantic Bavarian Retreat »

    This beautiful and stately hotel is the essence of the quaint little village of Mariemont, Ohio. Postcard perfection. It looks like something right out of the Alps. Built in the late 1920s, it has been upgraded with modern touches such as a glass front refrigerator/wine chiller. The room was clean and spacious. Quiet. Very nice oversized bath towels with a huge double headed shower. The bed was memory foam which I'm not a fan of but it was quality. There is a restaurant downstairs in the lobby but we ate at the bistro next door. There is a gorgeous courtyard attached with shops and a Starbucks. Coffee is served at the hotel. Keeping with the Bavarian theme, there is a lovely fireplace nook with comfy chairs and couches for lounging with friends downstairs. This small hotel books up in advance. My husband works in Cincinnati and comes to Mariemont every evening he's nearby. We had talked for months about coming here for a romantic get away. Perfect for couples or a bridal party or small group get together.

    « Delightfully Quaint, Superior Facility »

    From the well attended begonias that greet you at the porte-cochère to the hidden television behind the framed picture, no attention to detail is left undone in this handsome historic Bavarian Tudor Inn. Rooms are trimmed out in exquisite bath fixtures, damask sheers, and comfortable foam beds that your body will melt into slumbering bliss. Simply put, a destination to add to your bucket list of lodging.

    « Cozy hotel »

    A historic quant hotel- a must see if you are in the neighborhood. The neighborhood was designed in the old English town decor. The shipped are quant and all walking distance away. The rooms have motion control sensors that light up during dark.

    « Charming! »

    What a charming hotel! We stayed for three nights in a king suite on the third floor. What a great view of the town below. The historic decor was charming and the halloween decorations were fun. We loved the little quirks of the room, like the fireplace, hidden TV, and fridge in the wall. We also appreciated that the bathrooms were updated and cared for - beautiful glass shower! The bed was comfy - I don't normally like memory foam but I slept very well. Other travelers noted noise issues - we didn't notice any, but we were on the top floor, I don't know if that made a difference? We were right by the elevator and didn't hear too much traffic through the hall - no sleep disruptions. Wifi was pretty strong, too. All the staff we spoke with were friendly. The town of Mariemont is just as charming as the hotel and we had a great time walking around while we were here. We did not eat at the hotel, but did eat at Dilly's in the building next door - Yum! The close proximity to a Starbucks is also a plus. Overall, we had a very nice stay and loved the charm and history of the hotel. 10/10 would stay again.

    « Outstanding! »

    This is one of the well-rounded hotels I have ever stayed at. The property is beautiful, front desk was very friendly, room is impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. Furthermore, this is also one of the best sleeps I've ever had at a hotel. Some important things to note that frequent travelers will appreciate: 1. The thermostat actually *works*. We took the room down to 65 and it actually got that cold. This is very rare! 2. The property appears to have a water softening system attached to it. 3. The room was VERY clean, even the nooks and crannies. 4. The entire property is QUIET. We will absolutely be returning. Great job!!!

    « Great historical hotel »

    What a fun, relaxing place to stay. We chose a king room on our way down and a king suite on our way back up. Both experiences were top notch. We loved the suite for its spaciousness for only $10 more. The suite has a separate tub and walk-in shower with two shower heads, one being a ceiling rain-shower. The in-house restaurant has delightful food. You can sit in the restaurant, bar or outside patio to dine. We've decided this hotel will be part of our annual route when we travel down south each year.

    « Wonderful, Charming and Spot ON! »

    Love this place. I grew up in Mariemont and have always loved this hotel. Their service is exceptional, front desk is so charming and nice, and the quality is spot on. Love the beds and the fireplaces. Helps me feel at home when I come back to visit family. One thing that is not the hotel's issue, is the restaurant. It has gone down hill. The quality of the food just isn't there anymore. I think somewhere along the years the owners changed. The food tastes like chemicals, cheaper. But the hotel is great. I would recommend it to anyone!

    « Above and Beyond »

    My husband and I spent 4 nights (total) on two different occasions at the Mariemont this last month. We were in Cincinnati for a medical procedure at U of C. The hotel could not have been kinder or more accommodating. We had a handicapped room with a huge walk in shower and bath chair which was just what we needed. We had to extend our stay and Diane (front desk) was so helpful in arranging rooms so we didn't have to move. When we were leaving Brian helped me load the car and even brought us coffee for our trip home. The inn is small and has an excellent restaurant. The parking lot was right at the rear entrance. Our total experience couldn't have been better, even under difficult circumstances!!

    « Lovely rooms, mixed service »

    In a nutshell: the rooms are spacious (especially the nice kings with fireplace). Bathrooms are small but efficient and good showers. Bed are comfortable enough. The staff aims to please, especially the front desk. Where the service falls short is at the restaurant. Servers are young and not experienced. The servers managed to mangle each our three breakfasts. Not a big deal, just expect better. Overall, I would return because of the quaint rooms, but would eat breakfast elsewhere.

    « Warm, Cozy, Cool and Contemporary »

    This was just about the best place we stayed at on a 2-week road trip that included Niagara Falls, Detroit, Cleveland, Toronto and Buffalo. The Mariemont was amazing - from the warm, generous welcome from the front desk as we came in, to the level of service from the staff in the restaurant, we felt completely at home. The room was beautiful, very elegant, and the bed was the most comfortable in weeks. We loved the little village surrounding the hotel - we ate amazing ice cream at Graeters and even watched a Woidy Allen film at the (NICE) Indy movie theater next door. When we come back, we'll definitely stay here again.

    « Excellent Hotel and Restaurant Service »

    You'll appreciate the hotel, service, and price at this Best Western property. This property is in the Indian Hills area with easy auto access to other parts of the city. The "old world" hunting lodge decor in the lobby echoes what you'd find in far more expensive hotels.

    « Excellent Service »

    My husband and I enjoyed our visit to this hotel. We will be back whenever we visit the Cincinnati area. The hotel is quiet and offers a good place to rest after a long day of activities. The employees in the hotel are professional and friendly to all the guests.

    « Newly weds in September »

    Fantastic. Everything from the check-in, to the room to the breakfast, to the check out was outstanding! The bathrooms were clean and offered a generous sized shower and separate bath. We called down to the office for some Advil at 1:30am and it was at our room in less than a minute. Overall a great experience!

    « Historical with some High End Features »

    Walking into Mariemont Inn is like a little lodge in New England or Long Island. Unique and charming and NOT your typical Best Western. From the Tempur-Pedic mattresses to the luxury shower supplies, you feel far away but not uncomfortable. We stayed 3 nights in room 212 and loved the large size of our king room with living space. Some of the furniture and bathroom is dated but the old world charm is wonderful. The restaurant serves great food with tourists and locals alike.There is also a Starbucks next door with better coffee and a few cute places to walk around on cobble stone streets. Don't miss Mariemont Inn when you're near Cincinnati.

    « Great all around! »

    Clean hotel with very friendly staff. About 20 minutes from Cincinnati, this hotel is in the lovely village of Merrimont. There are a few restaurants close by and a couple of boutiques. The hotel itself is much better than I thought it would be. I normally do not stay at Best Westerns, but this hotel was very nice. I would stay again.

    « Fantastic hotel! »

    This is a very unique hotel while we did have a little difficulty arriving at the front door (unfamiliar with the area) we enjoyed our stay immensely and would definatly stay again! The rooms are spacious, clean and beautiful you feel like you are in Bavaria! We also had breakfast at the restaurant in the hotel and it was very good and reasonable, it also looks like several neighborhood people walk or ride their bikes over for brunch. There is a small theater close by along with a couple of small restaurants and a Greaters ice cream shop, Loved everything about this hotel including the staff , friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating which made for a wonderful vacation.

    « Outstanding hotel in Cincinnati area »

    I could have stayed downtown or with a different chain, but we have always had a great experience with the Best Western Mariemont. The rooms are spacious and well laid out, the beds and pillows are very comfortable, and the shower is superior. It is convenient to our friends and family, restaurants, shopping, movie theaters and the Little Miami Trail. I won't stay anywhere else when I come to the Cincinnati area.

    « Wow--What a Great Stay »

    We never stayed at a BW Premier property prior. If you haven't either you owe it to yourself. You will probably seek them out for future stays once you do. This particular property is located in a village outside Cincinnati. Small property but much attention to detail. Staff is professional and caring. Room is amazing. Had to have been the best sleep I ever had in a hotel because the bed has to be memory foam or at least a hybrid coil/foam. Shower is luxurious and the room amenities are what you normally would not see in a BW. Close to Cincinnati Zoo which was our purpose for being in Cincinnati. Dining on the premises and great pizza resteraunt, Mio's right across the street. If you want the feel of an elegant small town hotel stay here.

    « Beautiful hotel »

    And the rooms are beautifully appointed. They don't replenish the toiletries as they're donated to charity, so if you run out, go to the front desk. And walking distance from Graeters and La Rosa's, so not too bad!

    « Immaculate Property and Very Friendly Staff »

    This hotel is a jewel. I found it to immaculate through and through and the staff was very helpful and friendly. I only had breakfast in the restaurant and a couple of drinks in the bar however I would have spent more time in both places if I had it. The hidden TV in the room and the fantastic Shower are 2 of the 5 star attractions here. The surrounding area is very quite and printine as well and includes local food, a movie theater and some shopping.

    « unique hotel »

    My wife and I have been coming here every year for the past five years. We stay here to attend the Western & Southern Open tennis tournament nearby. This hotel is a wonderfully renovated arts & crafts architectural gem. And the people who run it, really care about the place and the guests. It's impeccably maintained. The restaurant has a great (and healthy) breakfast, with some of the friendliest service one can imagine. There's a lovely lobby and bar for hanging out in, though many of the rooms are so large, you'd be tempted not to leave. But if you do want to explore, just down the street is a nice cafe, Dilly's, with an amazing wine and beer store attached to it. This is a one-of-a-kind hotel, and we really look forward to coming back each year.

    « Beach Boys/Four Tops concert overnight stay, Aug. 17, 2016. »

    What a wonderful find! What a wonderful hotel completely renovated in a historic district of Cincinnati - Mariemont! Highly recommend this hotel for ambiance, comfort, service, restaurant and bar! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return!

    « Always a nice stay »

    My husband and I have stayed here multiple times and have a nice stay every time. I consider this hotel more of a couple's getaway. I have seen children but would leave mine at home. They will not take specific room requests but you can ask for a particular floor, room type etc. We like the 3rd floor at the end of the hall. #314 #313 are great. We have also stayed in #317 and were very happy. Would like to try the one balcony room but it's always booked. Nice views of the town. The A/c is super quiet. Fireplace is nice touch for looks only. Bathrooms are great. Complimentary coffee in lobby. National Exemplar is the restaurant attached. Good food. We like to have breakfast there but eat dinner at Dilly Deli just a short walk from hotel. Graeter's icecream for dessert is just across from hotel entrance. Parking is very convenient.

    « Anniversary Getaway »

    We enjoy staying at the Mariemont Inn for our Anniversary. The rooms are spacious, quiet, well decorated, and clean. We also enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. We would recommend it for a couples getaway.

    « Wonderful Find in Cincinnati »

    Found this hotel while trying to find a nice place to stay while visiting family in the Cincinnati area. Looked at downtown Riverview hotels but none of them were reviewed very well. Found this hotel as I expanded my search and we are glad we found this gem. This is the type of hotel that keeps bringing you back. The remodel done on this old building has kept all of its charm while adding all of the modern amenities you could ask for.

    « Quaint and romantic »

    Beautiful hotel. We had an outside balcony which was nice however there were no chairs. The pub is comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant. Monday night happened to be $1.00 oysters to the delight of me husband. The food was good, however the service was not.

    « Memories are Made of This! »

    The history and story of this hotel and the community are fascinating. We have stayed here before, and the room we had this time was even more exceptional than the last one. Although the building was constructed in 1926, the rooms have modern amenities while keeping with the historical ambiance. Food in the dining room is excellent; beds (Temperpedic) are very comfortable; updated bathrooms with subway tile, overhead and standard shower fixtures, plush towels, and lovely soap/shampoo products. Rooms are quiet, free parking nearby, Starbucks around the corner...what all can one want?! Highly recommended for anyone coming to the Cincinnati area. Lots of shops and a cinema within walking distance, too.

    « Wonderful »

    We always stay at the Best Western Mariemont Inn in Cincinnati when we visit family. It has never disappointed us!. The hotel is clean with amazing decor true to the period. All finishes in the hotel are top notch. The showers are a relaxing experience for sure. I always look forward to my stay there.

    « My Family is Looking for Reasons to Come Back »

    This was my first stay at a Best Western Premier and the best hotel I have ever stayed at. My family and I were blown away by the combination of Tudor style and cool modern amenities. It is likely will will plan a trip next year in this area just so we can stay here again.

    « Business Trip »

    I booked two of my bosses into this hotel, it is in close proximity to our business in Cincinnati. They usually stay at one of the bigger name hotels which grossly overcharge because of their "name" not because of superior location or service. Well, we just found a hidden gem because this trip those bigger name hotels were booked and some times great things come out of Uh Oh moments. The exact feed back from my boss was "Very nice big rooms...convenient location, good neighborhood and very affordable". Stephen/Steven (sp) who made the reservations was fantastic and so nice. I believe we just found our company hotel for ALL future stays!

    « Great place to stay! »

    This was a last minute choice but well worth the money. It was very clean. The rooms are very cozy. It's a bit of a drive from downtown Cincinnati but worth the drive. It's located in little town out side downtown. We will be staying here when we visit Cincinnati from now on..

    « Best of the Best Western »

    This Inn was very lovely and well maintained. The room was relaxing and the beds were comfortable. Location was perfect as there were several restaurants and small shops within walking distance. Our family spent two nights and even though there was quite a bit of traffic, it was quiet in the rooms.

    « The hidden treasure at Mariemont Inn »

    My favorite hotel of any place ever stayed. The staff helps so much in making this English Tudor classic hotel so low key and relaxing. All service is superb, but low key and relaxing. All other guest love the hotel, speak on the elevator to each other and seem to know what a special place the Mariemont Inn is.

    « Love this place! »

    When visiting family in the future, we will absolutely stay at the Mariemont Inn. The location was perfect for us, the rooms, public restrooms and dining room were all very clean. And the staff made our stay very enjoyable. Thank you!

    « Charming »

    This unique hotel is absolutely charming. The staff is very attentive and we couldn't have asked for a better stay. When we had an issue with our room safe, (our fault), the maintenance person was quick and efficient in coming to our room and getting it open for us. The quaint village surrounding the inn is a great change of pace from the city of Cincinnati. Our family would highly recommend staying here.

    « wedding bells! »

    We had a very good first impression of a traditional "English" looking hotel, The Mariemont Inn is somewhat nearer to downtown Cinti. The bar area and restaurant had good food and service too. I must say that after only my 2nd visit to the facility, that I would totally recommend. If your visiting the east side of Cinti., Ohio this is the place to stay!

    « Quaint Hotel, Great Stay »

    Great historic hotel. Stayed here while attending a friend's wedding. My room was huge and very clean and comfortable. I loved the TV screen hidden behind a painting. It was mysteriously fun to hit a button and see the photo slide up to reveal the television. Nice big bathroom, too. Had Sunday breakfast in the restaurant and the food was fantastic. Lots of unique choices. Would definitely love to stay here again, although it was a little pricey.

    « Great Time / Stay »

    every thing was Excellent. the village in whole created an experience i hope to have again. I did notice hair in the maroon decorative blankets. Also the front desk may need more than one person on hand.

    « Awesome Historic Hotel »

    We have stayed at this hotel probably 15 times in the last 5 years. We have NEVER had a bad experience. The hotel is unique in a tudor style building in a small quaint village. There is a movie theatre, ice-cream shop, Starbucks and several restaurants within walking distance.

    « Perfect »

    Maybe 20 minutes from downtown sited in a beautiful little village, this is the place to stay. A Temperpedic mattress and wonderful linens. Above the fireplace you will find a TV hidden behind a painting. An excellent restaurant on site as well as a bar. We were there 5 nights. The room clean up was a little weak but adequate.

    « Historic Hotel in the first planned community in the USA »

    This was a very pleasurable stay located in a beautiful neighborhood. The restaurant food is delicious. The hotel was built in the 1920's and has been refurbished to perfection. It is located in the first planned community in the USA. It is surrounded by quaint shops and restaurants of all types, all still maintained in their original Tudor style.

    « Unique Interior! »

    Me and my frienda stayed here for couple of nights and its absolutely fun. The paintings and decoratives are so eye catching. The beds are comfortable and bathrooms are clean. The staffs are okay. And the food is fantastic. Very family friendly:

    « Very cute historic hotel but SO LOUD »

    I chose this place because it is in a great location: park, great restaurant, movie theater, and ice cream shop are just across the street. It's also a very unique hotel, maintaining the original 1920s design as best it can. The staff seemed overwhelmed, disinterested at best. The rooms are nice with carved wood beds, marble tables, and electric fireplace. The bathrooms are the worst. The tile design would be lovely if the staff cleaned the mold out if the grout, seriously black and red mold was everywhere. Being an old hotel, the walls are not insulated so you hear the person above you walk to the bathroom, flush the toilet, shower, pretty much anything that vibrates the floor or wall. It was so loud! No sleeping in here, I felt like the pipes were right above my head as I tried to sleep through the noise. They also oddly put the coffee maker in the tiny bathroom on the bottom shelf of the sink, both coffee cup lids were dirty. The gym was simple but good enough for basic exercise. I would consider staying again but more for the location and charming common areas, not for a restful vacation.

    « We felt like Royalty! »

    Let me start off by saying that my hubby is from Cincinnati, so any chance we have to go back for a visit...we do. This time was slightly different, however. He surprised me with a stay at the Mariemont Inn while in Cincy, to catch a Reds game (UGH! Won't even go there!!). Not only that, he booked a premier room for the length of our stay. The Mariemont Inn is not a huge hotel. I believe it has about 40 rooms, but during the time we were there, it was very quiet. It is listed on the National Registrar of Historic Places, so you know it is special. From the time you enter, you feel you are transported back to merry old England. From all the dark wood and beamed the old English cozy bar, it just feels like a different time. Our room was on the 3rd floor and was huge. It was stationed right at the peak of the roof over the main entrance. We had an incredible bathroom, with both a huge tub and shower, but also a separate water closet with another sink. The shower had a very nice rain shower head along with a standard shower head, in case you would rather have that. All the linens are high quality and there is also a coffee maker with upscale coffee in the bathroom cabinet. In the main area of the room, we had a fireplace, sitting area with a fold out couch and a couple of chairs, small dresser, desk area and a small refrigerator. The room overlooked the Square with a fountain and we had windows are three sides. There was a "hidden" flat screened TV, which was pretty cleaver, so that the room kept the old time feel. to the bed. Our wonderful bed looked to be a bed right out of a castle....or maybe an episode of Game of Thrones or Outlander. This was a king size, four posted wooden bed with it's own ceiling top. It even had carved lions, which I have to admit...I kept my eye on! (Too many Twilight Zones growing up!!) The entire bed was on an elevated platform. The nightstands had sensor lights on the bottom, so if you got out of bed at would not fall and break a body part! :) It is a great idea and very helpful. The mattress was a Temperpedic, which is why we slept so well. We sleep on one at home and they are the best! We ate at the National Exemplar a few times while there and recommend it highly. I have also written a review on that. Everyone we came in contact with at the Inn, were wonderful. Can't say enough about the staff. It seemed they were happy to be there and it reflected in their service. They were all helpful and informative. If you have kids or even if you don't....ask at the front desk about the Buffalo head. :) That's all I am going to say about that. top it off....there is a Graeter's Ice Cream Shop steps away from the Inn. Doesn't get any better..... If there was anything negative at all about the time we stayed would be this: Room 318 REALLY needs room darkening curtains. Since that room is placed directly over the front entrance and the large Marimont Inn sign....(which stays lit all night) darkening curtains would be helpful. I was able to overlap the current curtains, but quite a bit of light still managed to come in. Kept the room more lit all night than we are used to. It may not really even bother others. Just a suggestion. That's it...nothing more. The rest was perfect! :) I am sure we will be back!

    We enjoyed a wonderful experience in this hotel, which has remained true to the surrounding planned community in appearance and provides a more personal village-type feeling, similar to a comfy B&B. The central location is within easy walking distance of a movie theater, restaurants, an excellent ice cream parlor (Graeters), and other shopping options.

    « Great hotel in a great location »

    This is truly a real gem of a place and reminds me a lot of my childhood growing up in Stratford upon Avon, England. Nice village with a lot of charm and the hotel has the most comfortable beds, which is really the main thing at the end of a long day of business.

    « Old World Elegance and Gentility »

    An association with "Best Western" is not normally linked to high-end hotels. In this case the connotation is a bit misleading. The Mariemont Inn (pronounced Marymont) is an excellent hotel with very nice rooms, and is a dead-ringer for some of the finest inns in the UK. We know, as we travel the UK a lot. This is authentic old world charm right here in the good old US of A. If we hadn't been invited to show a car at the Ohio Concours we would never have known about this place, as it was recommended by the Concours folks. As it is, we want to go back again in cooler months just to enjoy the ambiance of this beautiful hotel in the English-inspired, historic landmark town of Mariemont.

    « Beautiful Historic Inn »

    You won't be disappointed with the Inn, it's fabulous ! The site is beautiful, rooms outstanding, mattress so comfortable and the restaurant is a 5 star. Perfect place for a special occasion. Don't forget to stop at the Finley Market downtown.

    « Mariemont Inn, Cincinnati »

    Our extended family brings us to Cincinnati and we have found a real gem in Mariemont, Ohio. The Best Western Premier Hotel Mariemont Inn is a wonderful hotel. It's nice to find something in a real neighborhood off the craziness of I-71. Great restaurant also!

    « Cant say enough good things about the hotel »

    I do business in Cincinnati and drive 20 minutes out of town just to stay at this hotel. The rooms are large, they have a cool feature of the TVs being hidden behind a painting over a fire place super cool especially for kids. the town is amazing. The restaurant is great for breakfast and one of the locals brings a flower in every day and give it to one of the guests randomly eating breakfast. The restaurant across the street is great for dinner. The rooms also have a light that comes on on the floor so it is easy to see your way to the huge bathroom with a great shower. Cant say enough good things about the hotel.

    « Wonderful hotel »

    Loved this hotel. The rooms are very spacious and beds are quite comfortable. The architecture of the Mariemont area makes you feel like you are in Europe, and I loved that! There is a great restaurant at the hotel, and also several within walking distance.

    « Very nice Hotel »

    The hotel was nice overall but very expensive for being so far from the city (20 minutes). I was woken up at least twice during the evening by loud people in the hallway. The décor was pleasant and the bed was very comfortable.

    « always a great place to stay »

    We spend most New Year's Eve's here alone or with close friends and always have a wonderful time. Beautiful atmosphere and great rooms. Restaurant always excellent. Always first place to recommend to family and friends from out of town. A lovely village, and we live just 10 minutes away.

    « Attitude and Service Matter; electric faux fireplace »

    HiddenGem2010's descriptive detailed review was spot on, and I agree that I would never have stayed in a Best Western as we are 100% Marriott folks. However, our friends live very nearby in a small condo so they recommended we stay here. Pricier than original booked Marriott, but we canceled that on their recommendation. At first glance we were thrilled. Agree with all descriptive statements therefore written but adding a few cons. The above reviewer is stuck on the word 'unique', which to some folks is everything, but to others like myself, doesn't really mean much when you're traveling if it isn't filled with niceties, especially its people. While small, bathrooms are lovely but not double-sinked. Limited counter space and toilet is in bathroom, not separate from shower or sink. Speaks for itself. There is no bellman to greet you or help you with luggage. One small counter and one person there. Also, we found our room very small so we chose to switch rooms the next morning. While the front desk accommodated us, there was a great deal of inexperienced confusion about how to do that. After years of traveling, we had never seen this before. (Best Western could improve this) Also, we had no help moving our things. I am handicapped and use a cane but not much empathy there. (After 30 years of travel we've had a need to move perhaps twice and as a rule, a Marriott property will move you while you are out for the day and you return back home there to a new room with our luggage all in place.) Our lamp in first little room was broken. Housekeeping had no idea how to manage this small glitch, even when I suggested she just grab a lamp from another room and switch them out til the'engineer' would reappear after the weekend. That clearly was not her job so she then called front desk who investigated and fixed by doing just what I had suggested. Nothing is open in entire village after 9 or 10 at latest. ***A little head's up: There is a strange attitude in this little town that is off-putting---not exactly snobby, just very disinterested in those around them, very cool. A bit of 'every man for himself' - no warmth or concern. At hotel's breakfast, I asked the restaurant hostess to seat us in a quiet area which was barely full, and mentioned our friend wears a hearing aid that makes noisy spaces almost impossible to communicate in and very uncomfy for him. I was certain she would understand. "No, they were not serving in that 'space'." And a blank uncaring face met my eyes. I said to myself, 'she's thinking, well honey, that's your problem, not mine'...even though it really WAS her problem! Ha! In a minute we all 4 were sitting in that quiet area once I made it clear that this friend of ours was one of their most frequent guests and sent many family members to their hotel, including us. Even the 'world famous' ?? Graeters Ice Cream shop manager put her foot down hard, having no desire to share their bathroom with me, and 'didn't I know they are not a restaurant, (despite serving baked goods, ice cream, drinks, with tables, chairs and silverware) but instead they are a 'confectionery' and so are no way compelled to provide a bathroom. And so, despite the pouring rain at 9pm, no umbrella and open sandals, I was forced to go next door to the movie theater to use theirs, while Lady Graeters stood quietly behind her counter. Weird. (Now that I think of it, maybe Graeters needs my T.A. Review?). As I said before, I am handicapped and use a cane but not much empathy there. So though the inn and the town is very nice, it is not on the high quality service level I would recommend or expect. Even that could be forgiven, if all folks were kind and sweet, which is the attitude I offer to all who I meet while traveling. It's what makes the journey the real destination, isn't it?? It just would have been nice to have it returned. Given that the nearby Marriott was less money, we feel the short amount of extra drive time might have been worth it. Live and learn, I guess!

    « Old and Elegant, Beautifully Redone »

    When you stay at an old, historic hotel, rarely does the ?elegant' match the ?old.' It is usually old and rather worn, with lots of creaky floors, tiny bathrooms, old outdated plumbing, old corroded fixtures and on and on. Not so with this remodeled Mariemont Inn. We stayed there just one night for the first time recently, and just loved it. It is so unique. It has been modernized in ways that really make the stay enjoyable. First of all, the room size was generous. Perhaps even more importantly, the bathroom was redone, somewhat compact, but with adequate space and with high quality hardware, countertops and tile. There was a relatively large walk-in shower with a clear glass door. The water pressure was excellent. There were both a conventional wall-mounted showerhead and also a rain showerhead above that you could select. The water there seemed to be so-called ?soft? water. It was somewhat hard to wash the soap off of your skin (obviously not the hotel's fault, just reflects the municipal water supply in that area). Anyway, the quality of the shower is excellent. The bed was comfortable. It was the gel foam topper style that contours to your body. I am not a big fan of that type of bedding, but it was comfortable in this case. The sound insulation was quite good, especially for an old hotel. I could hear very faint car noise outside from the street, and a little noise in the morning from children in a room somewhere nearby. But, comparing it against most other historic hotel properties where I have stayed, this one has clearly benefited from the remodeling. The TV was hidden in a picture frame. A push of a button on the wall retracts the picture covering (like a garage door coming up) and exposes the flat panel TV behind it. There is also a gas fireplace right below the TV. Really inviting. The main lobby and restaurant areas on the street level are just beautiful. There are large wooden beams across the ceiling of the lobby, and lots of beautiful ornate wood on the walls that has been carefully restored. It is just beautiful. The elevator boarding area on the main street level has the old mechanical needle (like the hand of a clock) above it that tells you what floor it is on. It is just another of those fun historical touches. No digital readouts here. Elsewhere inside, there are many other historical curios, like an old tall and skinny ornate wooden shoe-shine stand (looks almost like a tall skinny throne), old antique wooden and cloth wingback chairs near the back entrance, and some books and other historical artifacts behind glass on display in the lobby. There is a grand piano in the lobby, and a buffalo head, moose head, and deer head mounted on the walls. It is eclectic with a capital ?E.? It seems like a combination of western Montana ski lodge (mounted animal heads, lots of exposed wooden beams) and Bavarian styling. The outside of the building is classic Bavarian styling with off-white stucco and brown accent boards. Much of the surrounding neighborhood is done in that same Bavarian motif. It reminds me of one of my all time favorite small towns, Leavenworth, in my original home state of Washington. The small village area of Mariemont around the hotel is charming. The parking at the hotel was free and convenient, right behind and/or beside the hotel. Finally, when I see ?Best Western? as part of a hotel name, I never quite know what to expect. Sometimes they are nice, clean and well kept, but other times they can be really bad. I had never stayed at a Best Western ?Premier? property before. This one is in their Premier collection. So, I am not sure if this is representative of the entire Premier lineup of Best Western Hotels, but this one was excellent. It certainly seemed worthy to me of a ?Premier? level designation.

    « A Merry Time at Mariemont »

    The Mariemont Inn in Mariemont, Ohio (east Cincinnati) is a relaxing treat which includes a good restaurant. The beds & pillows give a wonderfully restful sleep & the fireplace is very cozy. This as our second trip & it won't be our last. I'm planning a ladies' getaway weekend there which should be very enjoyable. The staff is tiptop--friendly & helpful. This is how a hotel should be run! Keep up the great ambiance!

    « No food or drink available after 9pm »

    Town closes at 9pm and hotel has no room service, bar or mini-bar. There is a vending machine selling crisps, sweets, chocolate etc.... Arrived about 9.30pm after a long trip from London via Denver and hoping to get dinner at the hotel. No options available. Lovely hotel in historic building, lovely town, large room with character - but nothing to do, eat or drink!!!

    « Just to expensive for what you get »

    Nice beds, convenient location to our son and family but way to expensive. There is a nice restaurant but NO breakfast included in the very high price. Room was small with an awkward layout. We have stayed here before and if you can get one of the corner rooms the layout is much better and room larger. Expensive Expensive

    « Mariemont »

    Wonderful stay in the quaint village of Mariemont recently. The location was close to the bike trail, parks, dining and shopping. The bed was very comfortable. The room was spacious and well appointed. The staff was helpful and friendly. The restaurant had great breakfast food. I hope to stay here again.

    « Beautiful hotel, staff indifferent »

    At check in, no show of emotion until she realized we were from her hometown. At checkout, she (different person) acted like we were inconvenient. I had a Best Western gift card to use that she said would be applied and that they would email me the receipt. We were not thanked for choosing their hotel or even wished a good day! The hotel is beautiful and we had great service in the bar and restaurant, which I understand are not actually run by the hotel.

    « Consistent High Quality »

    We have stayed at the Best Western Mariemont many times and have always found it to be a very good experience and excellent value. The staff is unfailingly friendly and efficient, and the amenities are excellent.

    « Favorite Place »

    Mariemont is a unique community with so much to offer and the Best Western Premier Mariemont Inn is right in the heart of this lovely place. Walk and enjoy the atmosphere and then return for a wonderful meal at the restaurant before retiring to an exceptionally decorated and comfortable room. We have stayed there in the 1990s but after the renovations, it is even more beautiful and luxurious.

    « Always a pleasant stay! »

    Mariemont Inn is the only place we stay when we are in Cincinnati. It is close to our family but also has the nicest ambiance. It has a very old world look but wonderful modern conveniences . Great beds and night lights at your feet when u get up. Fabulous shower too!

    « Perfect fit »

    With all the nearby amenities: movie theater, several unique restaurants, and Graeters,of course. the Inn offers a variety of walkable opportunities for a lovely and relaxing, no driving weekend or week long stay. It is a one of a kind opportunity in a lovely village near Cincinnati,Ohio.

    « Wonderful, historic hotel, in a quaint town. »

    We have stayed at the Mariemont several times, when we visit Cincinnati. It is my favorite hotel, hands down! It is beautiful, with all of it's history and charm. The staff are always professional, and very helpful. I will stay again in the future!

    « Awesome Hotel »

    My husband and I have stayed at this hotel for years! We love Mariemont and the ability to walk to everything. It is clean, quiet and friendly. The beds are very comfortable and the hotel staff is excellent.

    « Highly Recommend »

    The hotel staff has very friendly and courteous. Wonderful hotel with modern conveniences that do not detract from the historic preservation. Spacious, clean rooms. Nice quiet location. Entry into the parking lot is a bit tricky.

    « A unique inn »

    My wife and I have been staying at the Mariemont Inn for 30 years off and on. The fairly recent renovation of the inn transformed it from a charming but quirky and dated small hotel to a modern and still charming property. The rooms are now large, comfortable and well sound-proofed. New windows now provide a quiet, restful experience in a unique setting. Southerby's bar is a cozy place for a drink by the fire. The restaurant is a fine place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The surrounding village is a truly delightful sanctuary that is convenient to downtown Cincinnati. The staff was helpful and pleasant. One word of caution: booking through what appears to be the hotel web site results in a diversion to, with higher rates than necessary and they charge your stay to your card immediately without that being apparent from the booking. A better bet is to call the hotel directly for a proper reservation.

    « A tradition worth keeping »

    The Mariemont is a tradition for my family. Although we live only minutes away, I find a reason to stay as often as possible. My granddaughter loves it as much as I do, and out-of-town guests are unfailingly pleased.

    « Best Western Premier Mariemont Inn »

    My husband and I took a short weekend trip to Cincinnati for a Valentines getaway. We stayed at the Mariemont Inn in Mariemont, Ohio. This is our favorite place to stay in the Cincinnati area when we are visiting. We had a nice large room with two queen beds (tempurpedic memory foam - my husbands says these may not be for everyone), two comfy sitting chairs, a fireplace (electric) and flat screen TV (hidden behind a painting). The glass shower is spa like and spacious (you will love it). We spent some time at Southerby's Bar on the main floor, enjoyed some cocktails and bread pudding and had a delicious breakfast at the main dining room The National Exemplar. This is a special place to stay for a night or several and I hope you get a chance to visit.

    « The Best »

    Have stayed many times at the Mariemont Inn, and always have an excellent experience in both the hotel and restaurant, National Exemplar. My husband and I always prefer a small inn or bed and breakfast over many hotel chains. So much personal attention. We highly recommend this inn. Always fun, too, for New Year's Eve.

    « The best property they have! »

    Great neighborhood, staff, and rooms! It's my favorite place to stay. The beds have memory foam. Great place to relax after work. The staff gets to know you by name, they are friendly, and if you haven't been in a while, they welcome you back. Great overall service.

    « Storybook village »

    Mariemont is the best-kept secret of Cincinnati! The Mariemont Inn and all of its' history make you feel like you are royalty! I know that the price is a little bit higher than most hotels in the area, but it is worth every penny for an incredible experience! The tempurpedic mattresses were AMAZING! Best sleep I have ever had!

    « Absolutely beautiful »

    Décor was great, inside and out. It has the look and feel of a high level hotel. Lots of small shops, eateries, and a bistro within walking distance. Nice restaurant and bar on site as well. Very nice, clean neighborhood also.

    « Big rooms, nice location »

    I stayed for 3 nights at this hotel for business. The rooms are huge, but could be refurbished a bit. Beds were really good. Bathroom clean. Breakfast was ok. Staff at the reception was also friendly, however when checking out, I asked for an itemized receipt of the restaurant bill. They were not able to get it to me at that time and promised to send it by email, but we nwver received it. Shouldn't be that difficult I would think... The area is alsi very nice.

    « Old World Charm »

    Very Nice Hotel. This is a older property that is in great condition and has many updates and still keeps it old world charm. The parking was good. There is a restaurant and bar in the hotel. The lobby was warm, inviting and a great place to just relax. The hotel the staff was great, friendly and helpful. The immediate area by the hotel was nice with shops and restaurants within just a short walk. The hotel is about a 10 to 15 minute drive to downtown Cincinnati. Room was average size, quite, and nicely decorated. Bed was great. I felt I was at a friends house and not at a hotel. Again all was great. Look forward to staying here again.

    « Great »

    Very Nice Hotel. Great Parking. Great Area. Bed was Great. The hotel has old world charm and the staff was great. Room was average size and nicely decorated. I felt I was at a friends house and not at a hotel. Again all was great.

    « Lovely Hotel »

    We had heard this was a nice place to stay. Our room was spacious, with many fun amenities such as hidden television, large beautiful shower (with instructions for use), fireplace, large king bed with overhead lightening for reading, nightstands with motion activated lightening on the floor. The area is very pretty with plenty of eateries, including a Starbucks. There is not much shopping and the boutiques that are there are very high end.

    « a real gem »

    Stayed overnight and cannot wait to get back. The property and surrounding community are just lovely. The staff is great. The rooms have rel charcter but do not sacrifice a single modern amenity. The beds were SO comfortable. Had dinner in the restaurant and it was just great!

    « Exceptional - enjoyable and memorable »

    We enjoyed visiting this hotel so much - I guess we'll be recalling memories from our stay for a long time, and we were so glad we chose to stay here. It is genuinely different and distinctive; it has a unique heritage; and it combines that with truly welcoming service, and totally up-to-date facilities and services. In-room features demonstrate the thoughtfulness with which the hotel was last renovated, and the attention to detail is really impressive.

    « Excellent lunch !!! »

    Atmosphere was warm and charming the food was delicious our server was nice to look at and very courteous. Highly recommend this spot for breakfast lunch or dinner!!! The fireplace finished off the ideal setting. We plan to return as soon as we are back in the area.

    « Wonderful place to stay; full of charm and special touches! »

    We were incredibly impressed by this well-done remodel in a quaint and beautiful commercial/mixed-use area of Mariemont, OH. Full of character and special touches such as in-room fireplaces and built-in mini fridges. The main lobby, bar and restaurant are inviting and offer great food and drink options. Wonderful choice.

    « A Charming Hotel in a Cincinnati Suburb »

    The Mariemont Inn is a remodeled Inn from the 1930's. It is very modern yet has a very traditional flavor. The exterior is English Tudor style. The rooms have TVs hidden behind paintings. There are animal heads on the walls in the lobby. The restaurant, The National Exemplar, has a unique menu. We always stay here when we visit Cincinnati.

    « Hidden Gem »

    I love the Mariemont Inn. I always stay here when traveling to Cincinnati. The hotel is situated in downtown Mariemont within walking distance to several shops, restaurants, and a movie theater. The hotel also has an excellent restaurant. During a particularly cold business trip (-10 degree weather), I ate every meal in the hotel and never grew tired of the food. Delicious and reasonably priced. This hotel is really one of kind. It's not your typical cookie cutter hotel. It has a lot charm. The rooms are well appointed and spacious. Temperpedic mattresses are super comfortable. I always stay here when I travel to Cincy.

    « Great place...WiFi was useless »

    Wonderful room. Courteous and helpful staff. Was there from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon. Never once was I able to access their WiFi. When I asked for assistance at the front desk about getting the guest login, I got no help, the staff didn't appear to be knowledgeable about it and made no offer to get assistance. It's one thing to advertise free's another to deliver on it.

    « Quaint, quiet and safe hotel/village »

    We loved this hotel. It is a very quiet area located in the middle of a small village. There are lots of shops and places to eat within walking distance. The only down side is that everything closed early (5-6pm) for the most part so we didn't get to see too much. Would be a nice place to stay while vacationing. This hotel is within 20 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from downtown.

    « Cancellation of Reservation »

    Be very careful when making reservations for multiple rooms. Do not put all of the rooms under 1 name. The hotel allows cancellations to be made without the original person making the cancellation. Thus you could show up and be short rooms.


    this is a very cool hotel, with the Tudor feel and modern luxury. the room was very nice and the hidden TV was super cool. the bathroom shower was very good and service was excellent. would recommend to any of my family and friends

    « Nice comfortable place. »

    This is a very nice and very unique hotel. The staff was average in service, the wait staff in the restaurant was extra pleasant. The internet was unacceptable. The wifi reception in my room was poor. The design of the room, the extra towels etc were very special. It is a nice comfortable place to stay. I like the fact that a quality restaurant is connected to it. The gas fired fireplace is very nice. The room was large and the bathroom was large too. The rooms comes with LOTS of nice extras.

    « Comfort and History Combined »

    What a delightfully charming hotel in a beautiful location! Our room was beautifully appointed with the extra touches to make it premier. The fireplace added a touch of warmth. The automatic nightlight that came on when we got out of bed was a surprise. The shower was deluxe! There are not enough superlatives for this historic hotel with 45 quiet, comfortable rooms!

    « pretty good option for the area »

    You're probably choosing this to be nearby, so don't worry, it's actually quite nice. The Best Western name might conjure visions of lower quality motels, but this one is a historic inn that has modern updates. The room is spacious with desk and seating area. The bed is the first memory foam mattress in a hotel that I've come across (not bad for one not used to it), plus a glass fronted small fridge and gas fireplace. Another first is a flat TV hidden behind the "fake" painting over the fireplace! Very James Bond. The bathroom is OK, with a roomy shower (and actual instructions on how to operate it, which is handy.) Downsides? This is an historic building, so I could hear the person upstairs exercising or otherwise bouncing on the squeaky wooden floors above (odd since my room seemed quite with carpeting), plus I couldn't find a hair dryer in the room. As for the area, there is a movie theater, restaurant, and Graeter's ice cream just steps away. Overall, I nice stay if you're going to be in this part of Cincinnati.

    « beautiful hotel »

    I have stayed here several times, beautiful room. They have Tempur Pedic mattresses which is what I use at home for my back. My daughter lives in Cincinnati and it takes 10-15 minutes to get to her home, but I always like to stay at this hotel because of its unique character. It really only takes a few minutes to get anywhere you'd like to go, It's in a lovely neighborhood setting.

    « Quiet, beautifully maintained inn »

    This inn in historically interesting village of Mariemont has stayed faithful to its origins--beautifully maintained, updated where necessary. This is not the typical type of "luxury" lodging one might associate with a high rating. Instead it quietly honors its history and that of the village. Yes, large screen tv, but artfully hidden behind a framed picture. Good quality internet. Updated bath with very good toiletries and towels; large room size and decor also true to the inn's original interior design. A comfortable, intimate pub, and the restaurant is a great spot for breakfast and brunch. Staff is responsive and welcoming

    « Thought I was in Stratford-upon-Avon Again! »

    The village and hotel are a 10 on the "quaint meter". We were here for a wedding and I wish we would have had more time to explore both. Our room was a king with the Tempurpedic mattress which is nice to try if you are thinking about buying one which we no longer are. The "fireplace" should have to be listed as "faux" so you know that it is one of those flickering flame "pictures" of a fireplace. The built-in flat screen TV hidden behind the wall art was a nice touch as was the wall of windows. Unfortunately, the draw rod on the right drapery was broken and a drapery hook missing. The nightstands have a motion activated nightlight built into the base which is nice in a strange room but unfortunately the one on the left didn't work. The bathroom was large and the shower(no tub) has both wall and ceiling mounted showerheads. The wi-fi signal in our room(224) seemed weak. Since it was our first Premier stay, you expect everything to be top notch but in this case you also have to consider that the Inn is listed on the Historic Hotels of America and dates to 1925.

    « Nice hotel »

    Great spot in Mariemont, right in the center of the town, and walking distance to the stores and restaurants in that area. The hotel is kept up very well, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was large and impressive. For some reason the "Imperial March" was being played at the lobby at one point during my stay, which is a bit unorthodox, but welcomed nonetheless. It is also close enough of a drive to downtown Cincinnati, that business travelers with access to a car should consider this hotel if downtown locations are booked up.

    « Fantastic »

    Best Best Western ever. You will not be disappointed. Neat old building with hidden tv and internet. Free parking. Pizza and ice cream close by. Food and staff at restaurant was good too. Will return.

    « Annual trip to UC to drop our son off »

    I like to find unique places to stay whenever we go out of town. I was determined to find a hotel in Cincinnati that we haven't stayed in. When I came across the Mariemont Inn, I knew we had to book a room. I chose the King suite, and I knew my wife would love it! The Mariemont Inn is gorgeous! The staff was very accommodating, and all very informative. The hidden TV screen behind the picture was so cool. The tempurpedic bed was also a very nice touch! It was so comfortable.The suite was absolutely top notch. The bathroom with the huge walk in shower was awesome, along with the Jacuzzi tub. I cannot say enough good things about this hidden gem in Mariemont, Ohio! If you are ever in the Cincinnati area, you need to book a room here. It is well worth the money!! It is less than 20 minutes to downtown Cincinnati! I almost forgot to say that you are literally steps away from a nice movie theater and Cincinnati's best ice cream, and pastry! Next time we will have to try the National Exemplar.
