Much like the three most important considerations in real estate, meeting and event space is all about location, location, location, says Imran Hussain, general manager of the Hilton Cincinnati Airport at 7373 Turfway Road in Florence.

With the hotel being so close to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport and with quick and easy access to Interstate 71/75, the Hilton Cincinnati Airport has an excellent location for conducting meetings and hosting events.

That’s the No. 1 reason so many local groups, organizations, charities and businesses choose to conduct their meetings and events at the Hilton Cincinnati Airport, Hussain says. “We are very close to the airport and we are right off of the highway,” he says. “The location is very convenient, so that helps a lot.” And the parking is free as well.

In addition to its strategic location, the Hilton Cincinnati Airport’s seasoned staff can handle special requests in a reliable manner. “Whatever their necessity is, we can accommodate them accordingly,” says Hussain. “We are very flexible with the client.”

Not only is the Hilton Cincinnati Airport flexible with clients’ requests, it also has flexible room sizes that can accommodate as few as eight people and as many as 400 people for any type of meeting or event, Hussain says.

The largest room in the facility is the 3,940-square-foot Triple Crown Ballroom that can accommodate as many as 400 guests in theater-style seating. By arranging chairs in a classroom arrangement, the Triple Crown Ballroom can seat 200 people.

The second-largest room at the Hilton Cincinnati Airport is the 1,230-square-foot Triple Crown Room 1. It can seat as many as 100 people with theater-style seating and 50 people in a classroom setting.

Both the Triple Crown Room 2 and the Triple Crown Room 3 can accommodate up to 80 people in their 902-square-foot spaces, says Hussain. Both rooms can seat 50 people in a in a classroom arrangement.

The Triple Crown Room 4 and Triple Crown Room 5 can each seat as many as 40 in a theater-style arrangement and 15 in a classroom setting.

The Hilton Cincinnati Airport also has the 1,363-square-foot Turfway Room that can accommodate 100 people in theater-style seating and 60 people in a classroom arrangement.

The 594-square-foot Lexington Room and Louisville Room can each seat up to 40 people in theater-style seating and 20 people in a classroom setting, adds Hussain. The 594-square-foot Bowling Green Room can seat up to 30 people in a banquet setting.

For those who are seeking a room strictly for a business-type meeting, then the Florence Boardroom would be a great choice, says Hussain. The 594-square-foot room comfortably seats up 12 people in a conference-style seating arrangement. Hardwired and wireless connections are available in all meeting rooms.

The Hilton Cincinnati Airport’s meeting and event space can be used for just about any occasion, including weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, private parties, wine and bourbon tastings, charity auctions or business meetings. “Whatever space you need we can make that happen,” Hussain says.

No matter what size space is needed it’s important to remember to reserve that space with the Hilton Cincinnati Airport as early as possible, he adds. “The earlier they book the better it is because it’s a supply-and-demand situation. We always recommend if you are planning something, plan ahead of time and give us a couple of times so that we can reserve the space because it’s first-come, first-served.”

No matter what kind of event or meeting is planned, there’s no need to worry about arranging for an outside catering company to supply the meals. That’s because the Hilton Cincinnati Airport has a full kitchen, says Hussain. “We can provide anything from reception, dinner, wedding—anything you want we can provide it.”

Dinners can range from plated meals with pork loin, salmon, chicken breast, New York strip steak, tilapia and portobello ravioli as entrees to buffets with various entrée selections along with a carving station.

With a convenient location, flexible meeting and event space, amenities galore and plenty of menu options the Hilton Cincinnati Airport continues to meet the needs of many local groups, organizations, charities and businesses. “We take care of them,” says Hussain.
