1882 charisma meets modern amenities with a live-music lounge and a historic eatery
A grand marble and walnut entry staircase announces this French-style hotel’s pedigree. Now, following a $25 million renovation, this eight-story 1882 landmark has secured its place in both the city’s past and its future. The Cricket Lounge sets a swanky tone with afternoon harp music leading into evening piano or jazz, ideal soundtracks to the small plates and cocktails on offer. The Palace Restaurant, long a city favorite, serves hearty fare like duck confit with pine syrup and pear or rack of lamb with chorizo ragout and black garlic sauce. Queen city views, soft colors and period-style furniture make all the difference in the guest rooms.
In the Area
With a boomtown history along the Ohio River, Cincinnati is regaining its urban charm today. The downtown area—framed to the north by the historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood—makes for an easy spot to spend your days (and late nights). The 1871 Fountain Square, with its bronze-fountain centerpiece, is a grand backdrop for outdoor performances, and the Weston Art Gallery wows with 3,500 square feet of commissioned installations. To close out the day, fill up on first-class fare (like Amish Chicken with truffle risotto) in the rustic, exposed-concrete dining room at Boca, followed by creative concoctions along Scene Ultra Lounge’s 30-foot mahogany bar.
