Right now we're planning on staying at the Terrace Hotel - Cincinnati, which doesn't sound great but looks cheap, and its only 7 blocks away from GAB. I've only been to one game at GAB and I think I sat up in the 520s somewhere, which had a pretty good view, so I figure we'll try for that or the 420s.
I'm not sure how long we're going to be there for yet, but what kinds of things are there to do in Cincy? I know there's a huge art museum and I think some kind of science or natural history museum somewhere. Anything else we should visit for sure?
TB provided a pretty good rundown so that's not a bad list to start from. Heck, one of the options for the Gathering weekend is that June 8-11th series against the Cubs so there could be quite a few RZers hitting the town that same weekend.
Not sure what kind of nightlife you prefer, but my two favs are Mt. Adams and Newport. Newport is very easy for folks coming in from out of town as it's literally just a walk across the bridge from the stadium. Mt. Adams would be about a five minute cab ride (you'd get lost if you tried to drive there yourself in the dark if you're not familiar with the area).

That'd be Gameday (btw, they had dollar drafts at Gameday before
all Reds games last season and I'm hoping that remains the same this season).
