Anyone stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in the Bellevue/Newport area?
If so, what did you think about it? Does the TANK shuttle run from there to the ballpark?
We have stayed at the Comfort Inn Suites in Newport before, and in looking at the map, the Holiday Inn Express seems to be pretty close by. I remember that the TANK shuttle did run from the Comfort Inn to GABP.
Any info would help---trying to make a decision to book a room in the next few days for an early July trip to Cincy.

Ask RBA about his Newport Travelodge trip. You'll be glad you did.

Didn't there used to be a water taxi from Newport on the Levee to downtown Cincinnati?

Yes, but I don't know if it still operates. From the Newport side, it docked at the Beer Seller/Hooters.

It DOESN'T still operate. I just received an email reply from B and B Riverboats, who said they have not provided that service for about 4 years now.

Bummer.

I guess we'll be exploring the TANK option.

I took a water taxi, don't know who the operator was, but it was definately last year. It left from the dock downstairs of Beer Seller.

A bunch of us used the Travelodge for a bachelor party weekend (bar in Newport, Reds game, followed by a trip to the Hofbrauhaus).

Interesting night. I probably wouldn't take the wife and kids to the Travelodge.

Somewhat nasty.

They just built that holiday inn, it's close to some decent places to eat and yes the TANK Shuttle picks up right there.

It's getting bulldozed in the near future, an Uncle of mine was propositioned there, lovely place that doesn't match its surroundings.
