Choose from one of these stylish and striking hotels.
If you want big, this one’s for you. Located on the banks of the Ohio River, its 1,290 rooms fill two towers. But I discovered the real draw―brought on by a recent $60-million renovation―is a fabulous rooftop restaurant called RIVUE. After taking the elevator to the 25th floor, I was stunned by the panoramic view of glittering downtown on one side and glistening river on the other. The restaurant slowly revolves, so I didn’t even have to choose which view was best. Nor could I have asked for a better meal to accompany the heavenly atmosphere. Superbly prepared sea bass, buttery limestone Bibb lettuce salad, and a perfect white-chocolate mousse mingled with impeccable service. A complimentary candy cart ended the meal on the sweetest of notes.
