Historic downtown hotel receives national recognition

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A local downtown hotel is receiving national recognition.

Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza has received a special honor after AAA inspectors named it one of their favorite historic hotels.

The list of hotels was assembled to help travelers connect with American history, featuring structures of notable record or architecture, typically 75 years or older.

Inspectors describe the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza as an "ornate example of early 20th century art deco architecture."  The inspectors made special mention of the Hall of Mirrors ballroom inspired by Louis XIV's Palace of Versailles.
