Spent two nights at Cleveland's Ritz Carlton on Public Square. We were in town for a wedding at the Silver Grille, the old restaurant in the former Higbee's Department Store, now an event space. Parenthetically, the Silver Grille is one of the most beautiful 1930's period deco rooms in the world, not so much restored as preserved.. And the Ritz Carlton is a lovely hotel: very comfortable, completely updated, but relatively small, with old-fashioned touches (oriental rugs, classic furniture, etc.). The beds were extremely comfortable. Rooms and public spaces offered all the amenities you'd expect. The friendly staff couldn't have been nicer or tried any harder to make us as happy as possible. The "kids" in our party stayed nearby at the Renaissance -- their rooms and public spaces were nowhere as nice. (The Renaissance is overdue for a renovation, but that's another story). We were very glad we'd decided on the Ritz Carlton. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was a bit pricey (of course, it's a hotel after all) but very good. Delicious and high quality. There are many excellent restaurants very close by, including the Tazza Grill (Lebanese) where the "rehearsal dinner" was held; also, I understand, there's a terrific fish restaurant just a few doors down from the Tazza Grill. All and all, if you're looking for a hotel in downtown Cleveland, this is the place to stay.
