The 127-room Best Western Plus-Cincinnati Riverfront Downtown Area has completed a multi-million dollar renovation. The total remodel of both the interior and exterior of the building includes the addition of 20 spacious two-room suites. The property will host a ribbon cutting and grand opening event on June 29.

“This remodel brings a new vibrant and boutique style to our property, both in the public spaces and guest rooms,” General Manager Beth Wuestefeld said. “It demonstrates our commitment to exceed our guests’ expectations with high quality accommodations that have a touch of local flair including goetta, locally roasted coffee and breads from local bakeries.”

The hotel, which has been managed by Commonwealth Hotels since opening in 1997, was previously branded as the Hampton Inn-Cincinnati Riverfront.

“We are excited to work with one of the largest hotel companies in the world.” Brian Fry, President of Commonwealth Hotels, LLC stated.  “Business Travel News named Best Western in the top three hotel brands for three years in a row.  They focus on the guest experience, making every stay unique for our visitors.  We are looking forward to customizing that experience on the south side of Cincinnati.”

The new design features touches of cool blues and orange accents in the expanded lobby and sleek greys, silver and gold in the guest rooms. The full scope of the interior renovation includes new carpet, all new appliances, bedding, floor tile, curtains, paint, wall vinyl, artwork and all new soft seating furniture.

The new deluxe king and double queen suites feature separate living and sleeping areas. Rooms also include amenities that provide guests the ability to work while on the road including a well-lit work desk, ergonomic chair and complimentary Wi-Fi. The property also features 552 square feet of meeting space, a fitness center and indoor pool.

The property has also revamped its food and beverage program and now offers a full hot breakfast selection with freshly cooked eggs, with local offerings including locally sourced coffees, pastries and goetta.  In addition, the hotel hosts a nightly Take Two evening reception with complimentary local craft beers and snacks for guests.

Guests are now greeted at the entrance of the building by Chris P. Bacon, a six-foot statue of a pig, modeled after those which were placed around the area during the Big Pig Gig. “From the annual Flying Pig Marathon to the city of Cincinnati once being dubbed ‘Porkopolis,’ Mr. Bacon brings the area’s unique connection to pigs to our guest experience,” Director of Sales Christy King said.

Located at 200 Crescent Ave in Covington, Kentucky, Best Western Plus-Cincinnati Riverfront Downtown Area is conveniently located a mile from downtown Cincinnati, with easy access to Paul Brown Stadium, Great American Ballpark, Cincinnati Zoo and Cincinnati area hospitals. The hotel is also a short drive to Newport on the Levee, Devou Park, Northern Kentucky Convention Center, ARK Encounter, Creation Museum and Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
