Hilton Cincinnati Airport

Any good or bad comments on this location? Are their better Hilton properties close to the airport? Thanks!

The CVG airport is a good 20 miles from Cincinnati, you are in the middle of nowhere.

Location wise Hilton CVG is in the middle of a suburban strip mall area. There's a Hampton Inn next to it owned by the same company. The company also owns an Embassy Suites that is right on the Ohio River overlooking downtown Cincinnati but is about 14 mi from airport rather than 3-4 mi for the Hilton.

Staying here while flights get straightened out.

The property is under significant construction/renovation. No mention of it on the website.

I requested a king room, high floor, away from elevator. I got everything but the king. I have a "suite" with two double beds.

The hallway is covered in plastic and some other rooms in the hall have their doors propped open, covered in paint cloths, etc. I apparently have one of the "pre-renovation" rooms.

I turn on the sink and put a wash cloth under the water to wash my face. The water in the sink is yellowish, where the water flow hit the washcloth there is a brown spot, and their are flecks of debris in the sink. The front desk sends two engineers up and they say a contractor cut through the pipes down the hall and I just need to "let it run". Eventually the water cleared up.

Overall, pretty disappointing for the rates they're charging. The DoubleTree at the airport looks like a MUCH better option.

Edit to add: Dinner in the lobby bistro was pretty good. Service was a little goofy, but food was very solid.

I stay at Hilton properties 40-50 nights pr year. Not sure why this property still has its Hilton stripes. It is awful. And the price Hilton charges a guest at this property is shameful. I just can't figure this one out.
