Does anyone know of a nice hotel in the rivercenter area of cincinnati oh to hold a reception at. I would like something with a view and possible patio/terrace for cocktail hour but theres so many to choose from downtown its hard to know which ones offer the best views/backdrops. I would just like something really nice for pictures of the city.

I am not really sure about a hotel. I can tell you that Paul Brown Stadium had a fantastic city view. Most of the pictures i have seen have the dance floor set up so the cityscape is that background.

You might want to check out the Marriott Rivercenter hotel. It is in Covington, KY but has a great view across the river to downtown Cincinnati. I have not had a reception there, but my in laws hosted an "open house" type party after our rehearsal dinner there, which was great. There's a nice balcony with a gorgeous view. I hope that helps!

You could try the westin hotel on east 5th st. in the heart of downtown. very nice views, and the party could walk around and get great pictures in the heart of downtown.
best of luck!

I got married at the Embassy Suites in Covington, KY. The backdrop of skyline is amazing for pictures. They were easy to work with as I was living in Indianapolis at the time. They do have offer the use of their "Captain's Room" that has a patio that looks out to the Ohio river for a cocktail hour. The atrium was great for pictures. I hightly recommend them.


Emptyprofileicon Cindy Sparrow Cincinnati, OH, USA daughter is having her wedding reception at the Embassy Suites in August. Did you have your reception there? Do you have any recommendations for food at the reception? We are getting ready to schedule our tasting there. Thanks, Cindy

I did have my reception there as well. We had the hand carved Roast Beef and the chicken (I'm not sure the type of chicken) Both were very very good. Good luck to you and your daughter with the rest of the planning!
