Discover Cincinnati!

The new Cincinnati USA is a fun, vibrant, quirky, sophisticated, entertaining, sporty, high-tech, business oriented, compact, urban, old-world, new media city. How can it be all of those things at once?   Come to the Queen City and discover for yourself! 

Amidst the gently rolling hills along the Ohio River, Cincinnati USA spreads from the southwestern corner of Ohio into Northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana. The city is located about mid-point on the shoreline of the 981-mile long Ohio River. 

World-class. It’s the adjective used to describe everything from fine wine to great architecture. And it’s the high standard Cincinnati uses to evaluate how to put its best foot forward.  Cincinnati is the home of worldwide business and industry leaders, sought-after international events, renowned arts and culture, and a global world view and influence that impacts every neighborhood and every business.

The Hyatt is located within a compact downtown yet accessible from I-75, making it the ideal jumping-off point for enjoying your visit to Cincinnati. Cincinnati is also within 500 miles of 60% of the nation's population—with several interstates going through or within 25 miles of downtown. Cincinnati's compact downtown makes getting around incredibly easy. You will be able to walk to world-class attractions, major league ball parks and four-star restaurants. But if you want to explore all that Cincinnati has to offer, convenient metro transportation services are available throughout the region. Learn more about city transportation options here.
