This boutique hotel in downtown Cleveland is a new Kimpton property, bringing back its 1900s look with a modern and comfortable interior. The hotel touts its guestrooms as cozy, due to the historic space. You will find king or two queen bed configurations in these traditional spaces. One-bedroom suites with sofa bed and king bed are larger, at 665 square feet, and the Soldiers & Sailors Suite nearly doubling that square footage and providing a dining and living space. A three-bedroom penthouse apartment is also available with a fully equipped kitchen. Onsite dining is provided all day at Parker’s Downtown, which is open for breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m. on weekdays and 7 to 10 a.m. on Saturdays, and 8 to 11 a.m. on Sundays. Lunch hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekdays and until 3 p.m. on weekends. Dinner is offered nightly from 5 p.m. Amenities at the Kimpton include complimentary guitar rental for your room (you’re near the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, after all), evening wine hours in the lobby, PUBLIC bikes available to borrow, and pet-friendly rooms. Kimpton rewards members receive free Wi-Fi and a Raid the Bar credit.

We visited Kimpton Schoefiled a week ago. Our room was nicely sized, on the corner, large bath and shower. Entire staff could not have been nicer and more accommodating. One issue though, as others have noted, is the street noise of the motorcyclists with nothing to do but drive up and down the street until early morning. Housekeeping was a bit inconsistent. Some days we didn’t get wash clothes or bath mats. Parkers restaurant/bar was good and again had great staff.
My husband and I have stayed at the Kimpton twice now and we love it. The staff are out of this world! Everybody super nice and accommodating. The hotel has great decor and it is just a fun place to be! Also, the showers are magical; the water pressure is amazing. I will definitely stay here again if I come to Cleveland. I read a negative review where somebody wrote that they had trouble sleeping because of the street noise, guess what, it's a downtown hotel. If you want to wake up to the sound of birds chirping then this isn't the hotel for you. I also read a negative review about the price of the in room snacks, guess what, nobody says you have to eat that stuff. Anyways, my husband and I really love this hotel and are looking forward to staying again in the future (and that's saying something because we are from Pittsburgh ????).
