Developed by Eagle Realty Group on behalf of its parent company, Western & Southern Financial Group, and its development and operating partner Winegardner & Hammons Hotel Group, the 171-key AC Hotel Cincinnati at the Banks officially opened.
The European-style hotel is part of The Banks development, an office, retail and residential tower that serves as home to the Cincinnati Reds, the Cincinnati Bengals, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and GE’s Global Operations Headquarters. Last year, 90 North Real Estate Partners and Kamco Investment Co. acquired the mixed-use property for $107 million.
Located at 135 Joe Nuxhall Way, along the Ohio Riverfront in the heart of The Banks Entertainment District, the hotel is within 10 minutes of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and the John Roebling Suspension Bridge. The property features a rooftop bar, complimentary Wi-Fi and a fitness center. Three meeting spaces are also available, including two audiovisual-equipped media salons for up to eight people and an 888-square-foot meeting room.
“The European inspiration of the design and the beverage and food is unlike any other hotel in the downtown market and has already been well received,” said Eagle Realty Group Senior Vice President Tom Stapleton, in prepared remarks.
