The Hyatt Hotel in Cleveland was just a two minute walk from my New York style loft. However, I tend to make junkets to hotels and this is one have stayed at on more than 4 occasions.
The arcade is an old structure, with restaurants, hair salons, spas (I highly recommend taking spa treatments).
I have only stayed on the outskirts of the hotel, which has the feel of New Orleans. I only stayed on an inner room once. It was clean and comfortable, but lacked the charm and uniqueness of the outer rooms.
The outer rooms are romantic. Some have a bedroom and a living room. They have the large base boards, high ceilings and opaque glass above the heavy wood door, illuminated by an antique looking light fixture.
This is the hotel where the athletes stay. It is in the heart of the basketball and baseball stadiums, and a football stadium in another vicinity. I was in the lobby once having some coffee, and started up a conversation with another woman; turns out she was the mother of the coach of a basketball team.
The restaurant is on the higher price side, but well worth it - order the pancakes as they are to die for. And their coffee is sublime.
It is surrounded by museums and historic buildings. A Concierge is available, as well as a Valet and parking for your comfort. So it is a good place to take the kids.
I lived in the heart of Cleveland, and it is an eclectic city of people from all walks of life. You will see homeless people; I never felt unsafe, even when it was night, as the city is bustling. My recommendation is not to ignore people, but to treat them as you would want to be treated; with dignity and respect.
Do not open your purse or wallet; but have a few one dollar bills in your pockets to give to those who don't have. Then walk to the House of Blues and read their views on the walls. Also, go there for the music.
There is a comedy club across from the House of Blues - I lived on 4th and Prospect. And next to the Blues is an upscale restaurant (ask you Concierge for reservations), and an Irish pub. Just explore and watch the fireworks at night from the Quicken Stadium.
There is a good shoe shine stand, and I would see him when I could; he had the low down on what was happening.
It is a block away from the Ritz Carlton, which has a small mall for shopping and the house of blues.
And if you are lucky enough, there will be a concert on the street and you will love the music along with art and dancing and life.
