The Bartlett Building (previously known as the Union Trust Building) is a historic building in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, located at 4th & Walnut Street. The 18-story tower was the tallest building in the state for 3 years. As of June 21, 2010, the building's power was disconnected and is vacant.

The Union Trust Building was dedicated January 1, 1901. In 1985, the skyscraper was renamed for its new owners, The Bartlett Company.[5] The company sold the building in 2006.

After 4 years of vacancy, in July 2014, Columbia Sussex reopened the building as the Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown Hotel with 283 rooms and 40 suites, the third Renaissance Hotels branded hotel in Ohio. [6]
