Cincinnati's 21c Museum Hotel was named best hotel in the United States by Conde Nast Traveler's annual reader survey.

Located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati, 21c holds 156-rooms with contemporary art and Cracking Art Group's iconic yellow penguins displayed throughout the building.

Kentuckians, Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson, partnered with world-renowned architect Deborah Berke to design what is now the captivating 21c Museum Hotel.

Their hope is to integrate eclectic contemporary art into the community's daily life. Guests can enjoy a wide range of innovative exhibitions free of charge, 24 hours a day.  

21c's amenities include a spa, Chef Michael Paley's room service, fitness center and a rooftop cocktail terrace with spectacular views of downtown Cincinnati.

Guests can also enjoy dinner at Metropole, 21c's contemporary restaurant that features a custom-built wood-burning fireplace, craft cocktails and new world wines.  

Brown and Wilson plan to continue the expansion of 21c across the country and hope their passion for art can be an economic driver for every community.
