Mixed business and short winter vacation, brought family along December 28-31. Needed to be close to the Quicken Areana (as to not have to drive downtown during winter snow season) so the location on Euclid is perfect. Short walk to the Fourth Street shops, restaurant, bars (including House of Blues, Comedy Club and Bowling Alley). Good pubs in the area including Flannery's and Morioritie's (sp) and Harry Buffalo.
We are on the 15th floor with a lakeview room. The room has high ceilings, separate kitchenette, sitting-room, bedroom with two queen-sized beds (rooms are not physically separated by doors). Do not notice any strange odors as reported in previous posts. Hotel is beautiful. Elevators are small but efficient and all appear to be operational. There is only a check-in desk in the lobby but second floor mezzanine has sitting areas, televisions, computer and dest, pool tables and plenty of space.
Staff is friendly and attentive (slight issue yesterday getting bedding for pull-out, but that was resolved in the morning). This was due to a late check-in and upgrade. Sammy"s breakfest and lunch (in the lobby) is excellent for meals. There is also a deli and news stand off the lobby as well. There is limited street-front space for guest drop-off and pick-up so be prepared to make a few laps if you arrive at busy times.
Tip: Parking is off of Euclid on Sixth (enter garage, pick up ticket and self-park) be sure to bring the ticket with you to check-in. Desk staff will validate the ticket and then you can use it to exit (this is a totally automatic garage with no attendent).
