The Westin Cincinnati announces multi-million dollar renovation

 Hotel to Reveal Extensive Transformation and Enhanced Guest Experience

Westin Cincinnati is a favorite hotel for Canadians enroute along Interstate 75 between Detroit and Florida

The Westin Cincinnati is undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation that includes significant upgrades and contemporary enhancements to its 456 guest rooms. Additionally, the hotel has completed construction on an innovative meeting space, Tangent at Westin™.

“The Westin brand is about living well and the changes that we are making to this renowned property are designed to inspire well-being in travel, work, meetings and vacations,” said Kathleen Gilbey, the Westin Cincinnati general manager. “We look forward to revealing our re-design in the coming months, and will of course continue to provide our guests with excellent service during this time of transition”

Embracing the Westin brand’s promise For a Better You, the renovations will include a refresh of the 456 guest rooms featuring the Westin Heavenly® Bed and Westin Heavenly® Shower, new guest corridors, an enhanced ADA-compliant hotel entrance and Tangent.

Designed to facilitate collaboration among small groups, Tangent is ideal for impromptu meetings, brainstorms or interviews and comes equipped with smart technology to enhance productivity.

Starting from the core frame of each guest room, nearly 2,500 gallons of paint, 7,500 square yards of carpet and 51,200 yards of wall vinyl will be utilized to transform the décor. From the palette of harmonious, nature-inspired colors to the subtle mood lighting, attention will be paid to every detail to enhance guests’ moods from check-in to check-out.

“Guests will notice a sensory-rich environment that provides a respite from the rigors of travel and sets a welcoming tone,” Gilbey explained. “The Westin brand’s innovative programs and instinctive service are meant to transform every aspect of a guest’s stay into a revitalizing experience.”

Westin Hotels & Resorts, like all brands within Starwood’s robust portfolio, is proud to offer the Starwood Preferred Guest® program, which made headlines when it launched in 1999 with a breakthrough policy of no blackout dates on Free Night Awards. SPG® offers members the ability to redeem awards at more resorts, more luxury properties, more European hotels and more golf properties than any other hotel program.
