From the warm reception including a blazing fire in winter to the beautifully made up beds, it is warm and welcoming with an understated elegance. I have stayed here a...

Perfect location for anyone visiting Case Western or the University Circle (museum) area of Cleveland. Comfortable, well appointed rooms; lovely breakfast in dining room and garden room; inviting bar; beautiful public area; friendly and helpful staff. What's not to love? Definitely our preferred place to stan when visiting Case.

The best part, for us, was the location. We came to Cleveland primarily to see museums in the University Circle area. We were able to park (for free) at the hotel and walk to nearly everything. The art museum, the history museum, the botanical gardens, and the natural history museum, (and more) are literally all within a 5-minute walk. This,...
