The AC Hotel Cincinnati at the Banks opened its doors across from the Great American Ball Park in The Banks development—a mixed-use office, retail and residential space that houses the Cincinnati Reds, the Cincinnati Bengals, GE’s Global Operations Headquarters and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

The 171-room hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi, locally-inspired art and a modern fitness center. Three meeting spaces are also available for smaller groups to utilize with the latest in audiovisual equipment.

"We are excited to bring this dynamic hotel to downtown Cincinnati," said Tom Stapleton, senior vice president, Eagle Realty Group. "The European inspiration of the design ... is unlike any other [downtown] hotel."

Located at 135 Joe Nuxhall Way, the hotel was developed by Eagle Realty Group  and its development and operating partner Winegardner & Hammons Hotel Group, which is based locally out of Cincinnati.
