Cincinnati Marriott emerges from multimillion-dollar renovation
AWH Development has completed an ambitious revamp of the Spire Hospitality-managed Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter in Ohio, which involved upgrading its 321 guestrooms, meeting areas and public spaces.
Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter has benefitted from a major makeover that aims to make the property more appealing to both business and leisure travellers.
Transforming a prominent riverside property
Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter has long stood out for its views over the Ohio River and Cincinnati’s downtown skyline, along with its proximity to the city’s eclectic dining scene. Having just completed a multimillion-dollar renovation, this hotel now pairs an enviable location with a fresh new look.
The property-wide transformation included renovating all 321 guestrooms, meeting areas and public spaces, creating M Club, and reinventing Marriott Greatroom. Among the hotel’s other notable amenities are an onsite fitness centre, a Marriott Health & Fitness Club, an indoor lap pool and a business centre.
The property was renovated by full-service real-estate development company AWH Development. Spire Hospitality, which like AWH Development is owned by AWH Partners, manages the hotel. AWH Partners purchased the hotel alongside Opterra Capital in 2018.
New facilities and renovated interiors
Taking a closer look at the project, each spacious guestroom has been modernised with new furnishings, enhanced wood-look flooring and walk-in showers. In-room amenities here range from a well-lit desk, complimentary wifi and in-room safe to coffee-makers, mini-refrigerators and smart TVs. Many rooms also offer impressive balcony views.
For business travellers, the hotel houses as much as 13,000 sq ft of event and meeting space, and is also connected to the Northern Kentucky Convention Centre, offering a further 100,000 sq ft.
Through this renovation, the hotel’s Riverview ballroom has doubled in size to 4,200 sq ft – and boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and a waterfront balcony. The Kentucky room, which has floor-to-ceiling windows too, has been extended to 1,155 sq ft.
Also worth mentioning is the hotel’s new M Club, which spans 1,700 sq ft and provides a 24/7 lounge for Marriott Bonvoy members, while the reinvented Marriott Greatroom hosts visitors in a modern, comfortable space with food and drink provided alongside a variety of other guest services.
