Welcome to Downtown Cincinnati

Step into a piece of history at Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown Hotel, which proudly holds a position on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Previously known as both the Bartlett Building and the Union Trust Building, the original property was constructed in 1901 and designed by famed Chicago architect Daniel Burnham- our restaurant, D. Burnham's, is a tribute to him. Once used as a bank, the original vault still resides inside our hotel; now as a Renaissance hotel, we've elevated the building's historical significance and created a modern, sophisticated travel destination.
