I stayed a week while a family member was at the Cleveland Clinic. The CC hotels (Intercontinental, Intercontinental Suites, Guest House) were very expensive, and the IC was very cold with many doctor conferences (do you really want to hear medical talk all of the time ?)
This hotel is about 6 miles from the CC, and is very comfortable and high end. I was able to get a very good rate via price line (who goes to Cleveland in Feb?). The lobby and common areas are just gorgeous and very comfortable retreat after a long day at the CC. My room was HUGE, very clean, and comfortable. I cannot say enough about how great the staff was. Everyone went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable while providing professional and excellent service.
I ate often in the lobby bar, which is very intimate and cozy. They offer food from the bar, resturaunt, and room service. Prices are very low for the quality. I ate breakfast in the hotel resturaunt several times and it was just lovely sitting by the window. The food is excellent.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone that needs a room by the CC, business traveler, nice getaway weekend, nice dinner, etc. The downtown Union Square area is probably the nicest area around (the cleveland clinic area is a bit scary). You will need good directions or an in car navigtor as it can get tricky finding your way back from a very long tiring day at the Clinic (it may just be me....).
You won't be disappointed. I am one of the most picky when selecting a hotel and typically book one day at a time just in case I do not like it. I left with a very reasonable bill, and a nice stay as compared to those that stayed at any of the CC hotels (which are lacking in comfort, a bit too much like the hospital, located in a not so great area, and very very expensive).
While I would have loved if this hotel were right by the CC like the Intercontinental, I was very happy I stayed at this hotel vs. the IC.
One Negative (and this goes for all of the hotels in the area) - they charge for in room wi fi, and also charge a HUGE amount for a bottle of water. I think these basics should be free as they can't cost that much. The IC charges as well, as does all of the hotels in Cleveland (Cleveland seems a bit backwards)
Parking is expensive as are the hotels at the CC and in Cleveland downtown. There is a city lot right next to the hotel that charges $10 for the night. Use that lot to save $20 every night (you don't need valet parking)
