How to Get There
I think it already feels dated even though it’s relatively new. The rooftop bar had good food and allowed flip flops- so that was my biggest ‘yeah’. The staff was pleasant. Valet easy. Great central location. We walked to playhouse square for a play, browns stadium for a game, and the casino... all within a good radius.
First stay at this property, stayed in the Westin last week. The 9 is very nice and swanky. Hotel feels a year old or less. Was an old bank building but they’ve redone every inch of it. Very nice lobby. There are two steps to go down once inside to get to check-in and elevators and such, but there is a ramp on the left side of the lobby, so it’s not a big deal to navigate with luggage. Very nice location, just 2 blocks from the 4th street epicenter of nightlife, a couple of blocks from the Indians stadium, and less than 10 minutes to the financial district. Friendly service at check in, was told I had a nice suite, their largest room.
Elevators are those where your touch your floor # and it assigns you the car (A through F). Carpets, walls, accessories, everything looks new here. Entered the room, very large and well appointed. Walk past bathroom and into bedroom. Just path bedroom is a large sectional sofa, a chair, coffee table, and large TV. That area is not really partitioned from bedroom, but is like a suite. Like a studio I guess. Room was very clean and new. TV in couch area was larger than bedroom, but it never would work correctly, was pixily and skipped in and out, even after resetting the box and unplugging and reconnecting all plugs.
The bathroom was huge. Adjacent to the bedroom was a double barn door of frosted glass that looked in to the soaking tub. That was a neat feature I haven’t seen. I don’t think the barn doors could be locked together so you couldn’t open them so be careful who you bring. Then there was a very long double vanity with lots of counter space. Toilet in its own room at the end. Then a large tiled shower with a glass door. Very spacious and appreciated by me. Also wanted to mention, they have the thickest, best quality towels I’ve ever used in a Marriott Property. Better than JW’s, Ritz, boutiques, all of them. Maybe I just got a new set, I’m not sure, but they are great.
No concierge lounge here, they blame it on being an Autograph property which is legitimate, but many give more than just a daily $10 voucher. $10 doesn’t even cover breakfast. Even Fairfield’s give you breakfast, not the kind I want, but they give you something. $10 in a hotel restaurant will get you a bowl of oatmeal or some fruit and water to drink. Then you need to tip…
Overall, very nice property, very clean and new. Nice room, friendly service, great location. A lounge with amenities for loyalists would top this one off.
A nice hotel and staff however the beds and pillows are really hard and the sheets are rough. The pillows are really high and do not compress much keeping your head at a very high angle. You may want to bring your own pillow if you’re a side sleeper.
