How to Get There
I was greeted by a nice hostess. I explained that I wanted to sit outside. She told me there was no available tables. BUT, she reached for Rick, must have been the manager. He created a table for my wife and me. Chatted it up with him a bit and our server Alex. Alex got me a local IPA and my wife a bloody Maria before she switched to white wine. The hummus platter was perfect, hit the spot. The atmosphere was probably the best part. Just marvelous. Great weather, great drinks, great service. A+ in my books!! If you dont go, well it is your fault.
Lovely hotel- very helpful hotel staff-terrific restaurant with a waitstaff that does everything possible to accommodate your needs. Room was very spacious and clean -very modern. Elevators take you directly to your floor with no stops. Amazing.
What a hotel! From the front desk to the vault it's spectacular! Rooms are spacious and well appointed, with The Vault, which is an absolute must, the history and speakeasy hidden is a gem! Then head up to the rooftop and relax with yet another cocktail and just chill.
Unbelievably large beautiful room. Even had a “fireplace “ and a living area. Historic building next door is grocery store with stained glass and wine tasting area. The hotel has a great restaurant. One of the most unique things was the Vault. Real bank vaults turned into a bar area. Visited with my son during the day when bar was closed, cool experience. We were able to walk to concerts and the Rock n Roll Hall if fame. Looking forward to staying there again.
Overall, the hotel is in a great location; lovely ambiance, great bars and restaurant.
Pros: Beautiful decor, fun and lively rooftop bar, and The Vault is a MUST SEE; it is a fantastic and historically interesting bar with small bites, open for happy hour and stays open for late night drinks. Desk and door staff overall were very attentive and welcoming (except for one rather haughty clerk who looked at my husband and I and demanded to know which was one Susan...(ahem, it's pretty well understood that men are generally not named Susan, very strange), then demanded to see our ID, which we showed when we checked in earlier. However, this was a very small glitch. Everyone else was great. The hallways around our room were quiet and beds are comfortable. The room was in perfect order, very clean.
Cons: We had a king room. The room design, in an effort to be an "open concept" does not have a private bathroom as we are used to in most hotels. Whoever designed the room should not be hired for new construction. The only private space is a closet (literally) with a toilet inside. The sink area is small, right next to the toilet door, and has little counter space. The area is so close, that you can't open the drawer in the sink unless the door to the toilet is completely closed. The shower is standing in the middle of the room; while the glass is beveled, you can still see through it. There is nowhere private to change clothes, or take a moment. We had a king bed right next to the strange shower and a small sectional next to the bed. Decor was nice, though, except the reading lamps over the bed were very poor quality and we could not find a way to just turn one off. I like to read and my poor husband had to try and sleep with his nightlight on. Overall, we felt very claustrophobic in the room. It's supposed to sleep 3 people; a little advice; don't have more than 1 unless you really like the other person......upon check out, the clerk said there is another kind of room with a regular bath, but it was more expensive. There is no coffee in the room, but they have free coffee in the lobby. There are no snacks or vending in the hotel, other than a little closet by the check-in desk with a few candy bars, but there is a fun grocery store next to the hotel where we got pastries, etc. We left for the day and came back around 3 and the room was never cleaned. We had to call for clean towels. They came at 5 to clean the room, but we were dressing for dinner. The property is a mix of condos and hotel, so not sure what gets the priority.
Bottom Line: we would stay again only if we got a better price than the other hotels in downtown Cleveland. We got a very good rate, but we are coming back in September and for that room it was over $400.00. I would never pay that amount for that room. However, we will definitely come to the property for drinks, dinner , the rooftop, etc. and would highly recommend at least visiting the property for those reasons.
