You love your partner, and they love art, so an overnight stay at 21c Museum Hotel is a masterpiece of an idea. Part hotel, part contemporary art museum, you’ll gawk at the stunning commissioned pieces on the walls, in the elevators and even on the sidewalks. Rotating exhibitions bring a new sense of wonder into the gallery space, while the calm furnishings and quiet decor of the guestrooms grant you a space to rest, relax and reflect.

A big addition to Lytle Park, this refined-yet-relaxed hotel offers serene laid-back lounging while remaining within earshot of the city action. In-room tech keeps room service at your fingertips, though it’s much more fun to order a manhattan in-person at the lobby bar. With strong spirits floating around your head, a quiet walk through flowers at Lytle Park or the intimate tea garden at the Taft Museum of Art will keep your rosy cheeks pressed together.

Found just a three-minute walk from Paul Brown Stadium – home of the Cincinnati Bengals – the Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown is ideal for the sports-mad person in your life. Think it’ll be a hard sell if they’re not? Then make sure you start the weekend strong by giving them a fantastic Friday night at Fountain Square and a whole Saturday sampling goetta and German beers in Over-The-Rhine. Otherwise, splash out on room service.

Kinley Cincinnati Downtown

Let the Kinley introduce you to the soul of Cincy. First, settle into the Denton suite, with sweeping views of downtown. Freshen up and slip into something sparkly for reservations at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse, a five-minute walk away. You won’t go wrong with after-dinner snifters at Horse & Barrel Bourbon House, but we suggest heading back to the Exchange in Kinley so you can smoothly move from nightcaps at the bar to nightly entertainment back in your suite.

Thinking about surprising your loved one with tickets to the Cincinnati Winter Beer Expo, or another of the annual events held at the Duke Energy Convention Center? Make sure you lock down those dates at the Hyatt Regency. Across the street from the popular event space, the hotel makes for a convenient love nest all year round. Enjoy a late-night swim together in the indoor heated saline pool, or take a quick skip across the skywalk to the Paragon Salon for a CBD massage.

Show you’re in the know by making reservations at Hotel Covington. This hip hotel – over on the Kentucky side of the city – will show you a different side of the Swine City riverfront. Drop your bags in the light-filled Latonia Suite and snack on a few treats in the mini-fridge. Save a little room for the hyper-locally sourced burgers at Coppin’s, then it’s off to Golden Gelato for dessert. End the night hip-to-hip looking over at Cincy’s skyline with a few pints at the Braxton Brewing Company rooftop bar.

    If that business trip happens to turn into a more romantic affair, you’re well served by the Hyatt Regency. With Fountain Square next door, you’re able to quickly transition from the work day into date night. Hop in a cab for a flutter at the Hard Rock Casino or 16-Bit Bar+Arcade next door. If your partner wants to stay over, room service will gladly bring treats to your room. Skip the generic champagne and strawberries, though, and order up a pint of Graeter’s buckeye ice cream to share in the whirlpool jacuzzi.

    Symphony Hotel & Restaurant is ready and waiting to give you a harmonious weekend in Cincy. Wake up in the Mozart Room to views of the Cincinnati Music Hall and saunter downstairs for a gourmet breakfast. Do snag matinee tickets to the Cincinnati Ballet if possible, but if seats are full, you can dance your way over to Findlay Market to explore Cincinnati’s stage for locally grown food. When you make your way “Bach” to Symphony, settle in for a night of live jazz and smooth martinis in their lounge.

    Do you and your lover want to mix it up a bit with a steamy three-way? What about a four-way or even a bean-filled five-way? No need to be discreet; the virtual concierge at the Guild will send you right across the street to Skyline Chili for their iconic chili bowls. Get your fill of oyster crackers and walk off the heaps of shredded cheese at Washington Park. Try to get back to your apartment suite at the Guild a little early, though; quiet hours are enforced after 10pm, so plan your evening extracurriculars appropriately.

    If your partner would rather have peanuts and Cracker Jack than chocolate and flowers, treat them to a stay at the Guild Downtown. You can baseball slide from your suite patio into the Great American Ball Park within minutes. For a prolonged seventh-inning stretch, we recommend a romantic walk along the riverfront. Don’t be shy about asking their 24/7 concierge to order groceries up to your room so you can continue the night with a romantic, home-cooked meal in your fully equipped kitchen.
