Built in 1882, The Cincinnatian Hotel was designed as a “Grand Hotel” of the 19th century. Originally named the Palace Hotel, the eight-story French Second Empire hotel was the tallest building in Cincinnati and designed by the same architect as Cincinnati’s Music Hall and City Hall. The Palace Hotel featured 300 guest rooms and a shared bathroom at either end of each corridor. The Palace hotel provided modern improvements such as electric lights and hydraulic elevators to its guests. There were hitching posts outside and the hotel was located where the trolley cars made their turn.
The hotel underwent a renovation in 1987, reducing the 300 guest rooms to 146 rooms including seven suites. The renovation retained the old world charm of the hotel, the marble and walnut grand staircase continues to maintain its imposing lobby presence. The original Cricket Restaurant has since been replaced by the Palace Restaurant and the Cricket Lounge.
