When you walk in, it feels like you have entered the set of Ghostbusters or entered a time machine at least (in a good way). The elevators were my favorite part (until we got to room).The building is a converted bank building and it is really beautiful when you walk in. I could go on about the architecture; so let me just say take a virtual tour and check it out. The rooms were impeccably clean. The rooms were very modern, which is a nice contrast to the lobby and exterior. Great tv, comfortable bed. The hardwood floors and high ceilings were beautiful. The windows seemed original to the building which was very cool. The only thing was that the bathroom didn't match up to how nice the rest of the room was. The counter top was very nice, but the tile and shower just didn't match up. Certainly not a deal breaker, but it kind of took away from how great the rest of the room really is.
As for the negative experiences shared by other guests, we (thankfully) did not have any such misfortune. I can see where noise in the hall was a problem if anyone came to their room late. But, that really isn't something the staff can do a great deal about. We just turned on the AC unit just in case and it was perfect for sleeping.
We stayed here for a concert at the House of Blues. This hotel is an easy, short walk to the venue. The hotel is near the 4th St. area which is full of bars, places to eat, etc. So, there were lots of people walking around after the concert. We felt safe walking around later in the evening (around 11) and the short walk back to the hotel was a great plus. I really cannot recommend this hotel enough for a House of Blues concert.
The parking for the hotel is next door in a parking garage ($14.00/day). It is actually about a half block from the hotel, but you can pull up front and unload and then go to the garage (it is a very short walk). Next time we go to Cleveland, we will be staying here.
Also, check out the Christmas Story house which is about 3 miles away. (Read some reviews on it...)
