Downtown Cincinnati has become a magnet for destination shopping and dining with more than 400 ways to shop, dine and play - virtually all within walking distance. From shopping at the region's only Tiffany & Co. and Saks Fifth Avenue to celebrating with friends over dinner and drinks at Jean-Robert's Table, Nicola's, Via Vite, Nada, Mr. Sushi, Palominos, Boca, McCormick & Schmick, Scotti's, or Jeff Ruby's - to name a few - downtown offers a sophisticated and vibrant range of national favorites and one-of-a-kind experiences.

If you're visiting for awhile or just traveling through, The Cincinnatian Hotel, the 21 C Hotel, and the Residence Inn by Marriott rank among the highest in facilities, food service and customer care of all hotels in the United States.
