Location – The hotel is located in Public Square, which is a great location for most things you may be in Cleveland for; Jacobs Field, Browns Stadium, Quicken Loans Arena and theater district are all within 10 minutes walking distance. If you are coming from I-90, you are just 5 minutes away once you exit. If you want to use public transport, many buses leave from the square. You can walk to the next door mall (Tower City Center) without going outside. A note of caution if you are staying on a weekend – breakfast options outside the hotel within walking distance are very limited.
Check-in – We were here for a conference, so things were busy, but they were staffed adequately, and we were checked in quickly and correctly. They had even laid on cookies and cider at the reception desk and made a point of alerting us to them. The concierge was also very quick to offer any assistance.
Room – We got a city view (actually a view of the hotel across the street) on the 12th floor, and it was a big room. There was a fridge and coffee maker by the door with its own sink, a walk in closet and the desk was a good distance from the bed. Coffee was provided as was a very nice selection of teas. The bathroom had a tub, two sinks and a separate shower and had a nice classic tile. It was a bit draft though, and there was a constant draft coming out of the door frame! Bed was comfortable, but there was no alternative to the standard hotel squishy pillow. Hi-speed net access is available, but during our stay, only at the desk via Ethernet. Connection speeds were fast though.
Restaurant – We had the breakfast buffet at the Sans Souci restaurant. The food was pretty good, but be warned that it is a bit pricey for basic breakfast. The upside is the décor and atmosphere is pretty nice.
Amenities – There is a parking garage attached to the hotel, but it is not free. For Cleveland in November I was surprised at how expensive it was ($35/night). The fitness center is pretty impressive and goes above the usual hotel fare of a couple dusty old ellipticals and a couple of dumbbells, having ellipticals, treadmills, bikes, benches, weights and a cable station. There is a sizable indoor pool.
Check-out – This was quick and efficient as check-in and we our bill was correct.
We were very pleased with the room and the amenities, but the cost of both the room and the parking may cause us to shop around next time.
