The Garfield Suites Hotel is located in Cincinnati, which is known to be a vibrant destination with its major league sports, variety of tourist attractions, world class arts and culture and the recently opened Horseshoe Casino. 

The hotel boasts over 20,000 SF of leasable space, including a 7,053 square foot ground-level, outside-entry restaurant, as well as a two-floor fitness center. All guestrooms are suites with full kitchens and living rooms.

Bharat Patel, CEO of Sun Companies, noted, “Downtown Cincinnati is a dynamic Live-Work-Play environment, and the Garfield Suites Hotel was a fabulous opportunity! We recognized the mixed-use opportunity of an all-suite hotel with penthouse suites, office and ground floor retail space. The location is also tremendously dynamic between Kroger and Macy’s headquarters. The gentrification of the “Over the Rhine” neighborhood and the new casino add to the unique environment.”
