Lovely hotel with a very good breakfast. Very pretty building, pleasant staff, easy (and free) parking. My son and I stayed for one night prior to a tour of Case Western. Wish I could have hung out at the cute little bar for a while. Nice sitting areas all over the hotel. We walked to Little Italy for dinner which... More

I visited Cleveland for work and ended up staying here for the overall appeal of the area. It's located in a nice area surrounded by campus with lots of eating and entertainment options. The hotel staff was very friendly and it has good parking etc. My only complaint is that the wifi was nonexistent in that I couldn't connect in... More

I spent two nights here on a recent weekend trip to explore the Cleveland museums. The location of the hotel is perfect for visiting the Museum of Natural History and the Museum of Art, both are in walking distance. On Saturday evening we had drinks at the hotel bar. For a small place, they had a wide selection. The bartender... More

We only stayed one night here on way from Chicago to East Coast (via Niagra Falls), located very near (may even be on a local University campus). Friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere, nice small bar and lounge area in the hotel. Bedrooms sizeable, decorated in line with hotel (old decor) but had modern amenities. Bedroom walls are quite thin though,... More

I only stayed here one night because I had to go to the Cleveland Clinic for a one-day medical check-up but I found the staff were excellent! For example, when my taxi didn't arrive in time to take me to my appointment, the manager took me personally without charging me - a delightful fellow! Also, I left something important behind...

Due to bad weather, I did not arrive to check in until almost 9 pm. Staff was there to great me, fires in the fireplaces. Great customer service, free wifi, very nice room. Breakfast was very nice as well, everything was fresh and well cooked. Staff are helpful and friendly. Wish I had more time to enjoy this lovely hotel!

It's unusual to find a lovely, non-chain hotel right on a college campus [Case Western]. Makes the college visit experience that much better. The room was a bit small for a family of four, but the place made up in charm what it lacked in space -- especially considering the reasonable price. Breakfast was very good, and it's great to...

It's great to be right on the Case campus. The room was comfortable and pretty quiet, except for the TV bleeding through the adjoining door to the next room. HBO was a blank spot on the TV channels. The hallway outside of our door smelled strongly like old garbage. The breakfast was very good. I imagine we will be back... More

In the middle of Case Western, Art Museums and botanical gardens, a very few blocks each way. Pretty building. When we had to cancel at the last minute, they let me change my reservation with no charge even though it was past the allowable cancellation time. Bed fine, breakfast fine, front desk nice. Only minus was soundproofing between rooms could... More
