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.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Kimpton Schofield in Cleveland a couple weekends ago and had a great experience. Our room was very large and the bathroom was beautiful. The Schofield is very close to East Sixth and all the great restaurants and bars on Euclid. I also recommend stopping by Heinen's across the street to check out the most gorgeous grocery store ever! The Schofield even accommodated my boyfriend's request for champagne and flowers in our room upon arrival. There's also a happy hour each evening in the lobby which offers wine and snacks. Highly recommend if you're visiting downtown Cleveland!
Usually TripAdvisor doesn’t let me down but I was pretty unpleasantly shocked with this hotel. Room was tiny, all of the doors were dirty, halls narrow, we were in a room that the windows opened up to what looked like would be a great place to shoot up drugs or sleep if you were homeless, literally a ground floor corner alley that was closed off. And it was literally so low to the ground someone could break the window from the outside and step (not climb) inside. It felt very unsafe. We couldn’t even tell what the weather was from our room. Also, there was a dried booger on our flat sheet.. apparently they only use flat sheets to cover the bed not fitted. No robe was provided, 40 dollar parking plus water provided in the room, for an extra 6 dollars. Pretty much no amenities at this hotel whatsoever unless you count the free coffee in the morning but hell even the motel 6 has that. The only upside to this hotel was the shower, it was magical.
