Cincinnatti Travel Guide
Meth is sweeping the nation as the drug du jour and its effect are everywhere. You have to buy cold medicines from the pharmacy department of your drug store, the girl from "Full House" just admitted she was an addict and now, meth labs are taking over hotel rooms.
At the Candlewood Suites in Cincintrinatti, a meth lab was discovered last night by police. Their search of the room discovered chemicals and meth-making equipment.
Although, they said no one in the hotel was in danger, chemicals from the meth lab have been known to make people sick even long after the lab has been dismantled and cleaned-up.
As we have written about before, some telltale signs of a methlab in your hotel room would be iodine stains, a strong chemical odor, or acid marks in the room -- particularly around the sinks, toilets or bathtubs.
Also, meth labs are more likely to pop-up at roadside inns and motels so book with caution.
If you ate at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza Hotel between November 29 and December 3, and aren't sick, you might be in the minority. Many guests staying at this art deco Cincy hotel were only able to appreciate the design of the bathrooms.
Cincinnati Health Department is still looking for the cause, and initially only thought 50 to 100 people were ill, turns out that number is a lot higher--like 300 people.

When a hotel management representative takes the time to call out a negative TripAdvisor reviewer, and repeatedly addresses the negative claimant as "Ms. Sandpiper" (screen name sandpipersally), we stand up and take notice. To wit:
Ms. Sandpiper's claims about the Cincinnatian Hotel:
The staff was rude, and the room smelled like an old shoe. Not to mention we requested a hot tub and even paid more for it but when we got there no hot tub and no price reduction! To top it off there were mouse droppings in the drawers!
Management's Response After The Jump
Another day, another rumor about Nick cheating on Jessica, or Jessica cheating on Nick.
At this point, we are waiting for the inevitable Jessica's Dad is cheating on his wife with Jessica, but until then...
According to various web sources, today's Newlyweds episode has Nick's childhood pal Chad Leslie claiming that Nick was in a Cincinnatian Hotel room with his girl in the wee hours of the morning.
Obviously, she was trying to hide something. She was in that room for an hour and a half, not answering my calls.
"This is the kind of hotel you just don't want to leave," said one recent guest; maybe dude's girl just got caught up in the moment of a sweet hotel in Cincy--ya know?
