Stayed overnight as a couple as a short getaway from our home in Akron. We did the "Tour" package, and upgraded to a suite. I will always choose a suite from now on, as these are the rooms in the actual house, and not the new rooms that have been added on. Their character alone makes it worth the extra $50.
Parking is easy, in a lot behind the House, and free. Wifi is free (although this seems to actually be compliments of Case Western, but who cares?) The breakfast was far better than expected, with a wide range of items to nibble on, and eating in either breakfast area is just so charming and made us want to stay forever.
The room was very clean, very comfortable, with excellent decor and lighting. The bathroom had a heated floor (which was a lovely surprise), there was a fridge, microwave, Keurig coffeemaker, and 2 large flatscreen TV's.
The bar downstairs is simply charming, and has only four seats. However, there are innumerable places throughout the House for you to sit and relax and enjoy a cocktail - by the fireplace, in the garden room, in the beautiful lobby area, in the lounge area, and even each floor of the House has open cushy seating areas with small tables. The bartender, Ed, was knowledgeable and efficient, and just a pleasure to talk to. However, be aware that the $5.00 Happy Hour tapas that are advertised on the website are NOT available any longer. There is a select list of $5.00 specialty cocktails that looked inventive, but but that was the only selection for Happy Hour pricing. I asked for a Rockefeller - their take on a Manhattan (or was it an Old Fashioned?) but they were unfortunately out of one of the "secret" ingredients. Regular pricing was very reasonable, comparable to or even cheaper than local restaurants.
My biggest problem was getting out of that ridiculously comfortable bed. :)
We can't wait to go back.
