From working the front desk to being promoted to Sales Coordinator, then Sales Manager, and finally Director of Sales and Marketing. The now 13 years in the industry continue to excite, challenge, and grow Amber personally and professionally. In her free time, Amber enjoys spending time with her amazing son Jackson. She also enjoys traveling, exercising, kayaking, watching movies and…eating.

Spacious rooms with appealing Decor. Beds are awesome! Friendly, helpful employees at the front desk and the bar in the lobby. Convenient parking and restaurants, an aquarium and movie theater within walking distance. Just a short drive across the bridge to downtown Cincinnati for sporting and cultural events. We arrived late for check in and were pleasantly surprised to find that we had been upgraded to a lovely suite. I will definitely stay at this hotel again when traveling to Cincinnati.
