Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza
The Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza is a true French Art Deco masterpiece. Opened in 1931, the hotel was an integral part of the first multi-use complex in the United States. Described as a "city within a city," the complex featured an office tower, hotel, fully automated garage, shopping complex and restaurants. Today, the hotel is the city's crown jewel.
The hotel's main lobby and mezzanine areas feature a half-acre of rare Brazilian rosewood, extensive use of German silver, and a stylized Egyptian decor reinforced with delicate floral motifs. There are also exquisitely detailed frescoes, ceiling murals, an original Rookwood fountain with a pair of matching seahorses, and the refined Restaurants at Palm Court, which includes Orchids at Palm Court—voted as the top restaurant in Cincinnati (Zagat, 2011) and one of the top 50 restaurants in the US (OpenTable, 2010 and 2011).
Other areas not to be missed are the renowned Hall of Mirrors, modeled after the Palace of Versailles in Paris, the Continental Room, with striking floor to ceiling windows, gorgeous chandeliers and amazing frescoes of the four seasons, and the Pavillion Ballroom, originally the hotel’s nightclub.
Each of the 561 guestrooms and suites feature Hilton’s Serenity Bed, a truly luxurious sleep experience. Modern amenities include high speed internet access, individual heating & air controls and a work space that includes a five-point desk chair.
The hotel is within the Carew Tower shopping & dining complex and centrally located in downtown Cincinnati, and the anchor for the city's famous skywalk system, which connects to the Duke Energy Convention Center and several complexes. The hotel is adjacent to renovated Fountain Square Entertainment District and within walking distance to Cincinnati's Backstage Entertainment District, Paul Brown Stadium, Great American Ballpark, USBank Arena and theatres.
