Cool Place. Would go again when it's nicer weather. The galleries were great and the staff was nice and accomodating. Our meal at Metropole was delicious and that package I purchased for the visit was a good value.

Contemporary furnishings and decor AND art in a historic building. Service was excellent and friendly and upbeat. The brunch was very tasty and the whole place had a unique feel. Our carrot salad and smoked trout were superb!,

The room was very clean. The staff was very nice. The art was interesting. It's a fun place to stay. It's right in the heart of downtown with many restaurants and bars within walking distance. One of the bartenders at the metropole was very nice...another was annoyed by the presence of any customer...but, can't win them all!

Loved it. Great art around the hotel. Tastefully furnished and roomy rooms and very courteous and professional staff. Would definitely stay again. Gym facilities could be improved but they were adequate.

We live locally and just wanted to get away for the night. It was the perfect getaway and romantic evening. I completely forgot we lived 10 minutes away! The room service was extremely prompt, along with any other amenities we needed. Very gracious.

I loved the place. Great location. Service was good. Very clean and contemporary. Cool artwork. Room was comfortable and sleek, but overall this hotel was much too expensive. I only paid the money b/c my wife really wanted to stay there. I'm no dummy.

Loved the hotel/art museum idea. Restaurant "Metropole" was outstanding. You must try the cold smoked grapes on the charcuterie plate. Get a wine at the bar, walk around, and peruse the art. Also close to streetcar stop, across from Aronoff. Great location.

Original concept. Great redo of existing property, so much nicer than a tear down and construction of multistory boring chain hotel. The art is cutting edge, thought provoking. And imaginative delicious food, especially the muesli and burnt carrot salad.
