The bathroom toilet had a leak so that it was refilling quite a lot during my stay. I reported to both the staff and the desk but nothing was done. It was a short stay so maybe it was fixed after I left.

This hotel was beautiful and had a wonderful, relaxing feel to it. I loved the artsy décor that made me feel a little bit like I was back in the 1920s. The beds were so comfortable and the breakfast was amazing! We also had wonderful help from the staff on touring Cleveland. I would come back to this hotel again because it felt like a home away from home!
