We enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is near Lake Erie, on the NE edge of Downtown Cleveland. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is less than a 10 minute walk from here! Surrounded by mostly office and civic buildings, the area around the hotel is pretty quiet in the evening and on weekends. As a result, the hotel bar was surprisingly busy each night of our stay. However, an easy 15 minute walk westbound leads to the Warehouse District, with lots of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. And a 15 minute walk SW in the vicinity of Euclid Avenue & East 4th Street was also a center of activity with many restaurants--busy even on a weekday night. [All the restaurants we ate at were very good, and not crazy expensive either.] Cleveland's excellent theater district, Playhouse Square, was also about a 15 minute walk southbound from the hotel. There is a lot of historic architecture in Downtown Cleveland which made our walks interesting and fun. Although we didn't stay out really late at night, we never felt unsafe walking around Downtown Cleveland and my wife was impressed that the Downtown area was overall clean and well maintained.
Based upon the "fire escape map" on the back of the hotel room door, we had one of the smaller king rooms at the end of the hall...I think those are drawn to scale. Although it was smaller than the average hotel room, it was clean and the bed was very comfortable. And the decor was really quite striking: my wife described it as "edgy and urbane." Really looked more like a room at a "W" hotel with dark stained furniture, a leather textured wall covering, black and platinum horizontal striped drapes, and burgundy and black carpeting in a wavy line pattern. A nice change of pace from the usual conservative hotel decor of 5 shades of beige.
The common areas of the hotel--lobby, restaurant, halls--appear to be recently redecorated in a similar contemporary style.
The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and our two interactions with the housekeeping staff were also positive.
