Cincinnati Hotels and Accommodation
(Cincinnati, Ohio - OH, USA)
There are plenty of hotels located in Cincinnati, offering competitive deals and discounts when booked ahead. Popular accommodation enjoys views of the Ohio River, with the most conveniently standing in the very heart of the downtown district, where both the Cincinnati Convention Center and the Paul Brown Stadium are within easy walking distance of lodging.
There are also a number of hotels close to the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG)
, which is only 13 miles / 21 km south of downtown Cincinnati. Accommodation near to the airport includes the Baymont Inn, the Hilton Garden Inn and the Sheraton, amongst others. Of note, the hotel tax in Ohio is slightly higher than across the border in Kentucky, and so this is reflected in the prices.
