Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza

We recently had the opportunity to stay at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza while visiting the Newport Aquarium and Ride the Ducks Tour.  

 This hotel is located in downtown Cincinnati and is one of a kind.  Why is it one of a kind you ask?  Because this gorgeous historic hotel was built in 1931 and is one of the world's finest examples of French Art Deco Style.  It is just beautiful on the inside and out.  Not something you see everyday, especially in a hotel.  

From the moment you arrive at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza you will know it's extraordinary! Admire rare Brazilian rosewood paneling, two-story ceiling murals and original German silver-nickel sconces. 

You will experience an unforgettable stay surrounded by classic architecture and modern hospitality.

The hotel provides more than 40,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting and event space, including 31 meeting rooms and 3 breathtaking ballrooms; Hall of Mirrors, Pavillion Ballroom and Continental Ballroom.  It also has 5 Executive Boardrooms for all of your business needs and 23 additional flexible spaces!

Whether you are there for business or strictly pleasure you will love relaxing in a stylish guest room that includes a comfortable bed and a generous work desk.  There are 561 guestrooms, including 71 suites.  Enjoy free high-speed internet, a full sized chair and ottoman, voice mail, coffeemakers and iron and ironing boards in each room.

The excellence of the hotel continues with fine dining at the Orchids at Palm Court, their award-winning restaurant.  Unfortunately we didn't have a chance to try it out ourselves, but we hear it's wonderful.  Their chef, Todd Kelly was named USA Chef of the Year 2011-2012 by the American Culinary Federation and it was named Cincinnati's #1 Restaurant four years in a row (2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012) by Cincinnati Magazine.


From the minute we arrived, we knew we were going to love this hotel.  Located in downtown Cincinnati we were within walking distance to so many things.  Check-in was easy and the staff couldn't have been more polite and helpful.  

It could have stopped there but it didn't.  Upon arrival to our room we were greeted by all of this...

2 Bottles of chilled water, fancy water goblets, a delicious tray of gourmet treats and a welcome letter from their Director of Sales, Bob Lewis telling us to enjoy our stay!  It was much appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed!  The boys LOVED those chocolate chip cookies and Craig and I loved the desserts!

Our room had an awesome view of the city and the Ohio River...

We also enjoyed the view from their Belvedere Club which is exclusive to Hilton Diamond and Gold Members.  We were invited there for their Continental Breakfast which we took advantage of the morning of our departure.

Love the huge pots of planted herbs that the boys are standing by, they actually grow these for use in their restaurant!

What I loved most about this hotel is that it was connected to Tower Place Mall which had my favorite store in it, T.J. Maxx!  We could literally walk through our hotel into the mall and go to T.J. Maxx which was only a few steps away, loved that!!  

Overall, we had a wonderful experience at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza Hotel. We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it to any of you!
