Cincinnati: Downtown: Hampton Inn / Homewood Suites (Cincinnati Enquirer Building Redevlopment)

Recommended Posts

Yeah, it seems like the Renaissance was a much larger project, and it was completed much faster.

 

I went to a tour of this building thru AIA Cincinnati.  The Architect of Record discussed how this project was done and how the developer operates and basically that for them, every day they are not open is potential revenue lost.  So they operate and make decisions with that in mind.

The Renaissance also has very questionable construction detailing/quality. It's nice at a glance, but there wasn't much attention given to the small details beyond the entry/lobby. It was done fast and it shows.

 

I'm imagining they're taking their time to get this right which is good.

Also, I may be wrong but I think actual newspaper printing was performed during some period of the Enquirer Building's history.  If so, there may have been some environmental issues to deal with (e.g., residues of inks, solvents used).  I'm not sure though.

Looks like they are on track for an April opening: http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2015/02/17/hamilton-county-hotel-tax-tourism/23585955/

 

The biggest project in the short-term is the conversion of the old Enquirer building on Vine Street downtown into two hotels, a Hampton Inn and Suites and a Homewood Suites. They are expected to open in April and will have a total of about 250 rooms.
