Awesome hotel that creates a museum atmosphere in every room. Great lobby restaurant in metropole and even better views at the rooftop bar. If you're staying in Cincinnati this place should be at the top of your list.

Part contemporary art museum, part hotel, part restaurant and bar attraction. 21c Museum Hotel is a staple in Cincinnati’s local culture. If you wandered into this place off the street, you might not realize it’s even a hotel because the museum takes center stage. Have fun wandering around the bottom and second floor looking at all the art pieces, they change regularly so local art and design lovers regularly stop in to see what’s new. The hotel rooms themselves reflect the contemporary taste of the museum, decorated in a very sleek and minimalist fashion. You’ll love having down time in your room. But if you feel like getting out, head to the rooftop for the Metropole for signature cocktails and an awesome view of downtown. Very cool, young staff that is eager to please and share the best things to do in this city. You’ll be plenty entertained and happy in the hotel, but try to fight the urge to stay in it your entire trip! I recommend 21c for sure.

A decade of combined efforts has glammed up Cincy’s historic urban core; the 21c Museum Hotels Group did its part by turning a neglected 100-year-old downtown building into a hotel and contemporary art space with rotating exhibitions. Ever true to its mission, the brand’s founders, Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson, preserved many of the original details—mosaic tile floors, large-scale arched windows—and filled each of the 156 modern rooms with original works.

Cincinnati's 21c Museum Hotel is more like a museum that happens to have rooms than the other way around. When you first step into the 21c you'll notice the lack of the traditional front desk. In it's place is a table made of tiny figurines manned by 21c employees with laptops. But that's just the beginning. Sculptures on the first floor - nudes in various poses - are striking and riveting. Throughout the hotel area galleries with more provoking art, interspersed with sitting areas.

The hotel was once an apartment building that housed tenants who stayed for decades. The last tenant's camel and circus art is proudly displayed outside Metropole (the name of the apartment building) 21c's restaurant that is hip, casual, and usually very busy. Rooms at the 21c feature art, robes, a good sized desk for business travelers. Rookwood Pottery made the tiles in the showers, be sure to notice the imprint of ears and other parts in the white tile.

A day spa (pretty $$) is featured on the top floor as is a good gym with all the ameneties on the bottom floor. The hotel uncovered a gorgeous ceiling above a dropped ceiling for the apartment days and restored the area into a space for weddings and other events. Note: The Smiths dominated the sound system at a higher volume. Art is provoking. The 21c Museum Hotel is an experience. Come ready.
