Once upon a time, I was visiting Washington D.C. and a friend said I should stay in the Kimpton Rouge, as “you’ll probably like it”. Turns out he was right. I’ve subsequently stayed in places such as the Kimpton Brice in Savannah and most recently at the Kimpton Schofield in Cleveland.

It’s worth mentioning this hotel has a guitar loaner programme as well as all the usual things you’d expect from a Kimpton. I booked a King Premium City View wih Walk In Shower (their top grade before suites), which cost €1,092.87 for five nights in October.

The Lobby and Check-In

I arrived too early for check-in, so I left my bags and went on my merry way. Later on, I returned and was swiftly checked in by the friendly staff.

The lobby itself has a lovely fire feature (see the top image on this article) and is a nice place to spend time. There is a wine hour from 5pm to 6pm daily (that’s a Kimpton thing) and morning coffee as well. All in all, it’s rather nice!

Room 410 at the Kimpton Schofield

My room appeared to be just like the online pictures, which is great. It was spacious, had a lovely comfortable king bed, a place to work with a desk chair, a separate chair for relaxing, plus a safe, robe and a yoga mat in the wardrobe.

Happily there is a fridge in the room, and inside mine were cans of White Claw as well as an energy drink. The Wi-Fi was totally fine for working and the air conditioning is very responsive to changes. Everything was great!

That Bathroom with Walk In Shower

So far, so good, right? Well, what’s hardly shown on the Kimpton Schofield website is the bathroom. This featured a toilet in a separate room for one, but the pièce de résistance is the walk in shower flanked either side by separate vanity units.

Not only is it all beautiful to look at, the shower has pressure like I imagine one would feel standing under Niagara Falls. I looked forward to – and thoroughly enjoyed – showering here. The Atelier Bloem products are really lovely too. So, so good!

Eat At Betts

On site just off the lobby is Betts Restaurant and I visited here for breakfast a few times. The service is quite swift and the food was quite decent, I thought.

It’s handy having food available right there in the hotel, especially in the morning. I’m sure there are other places around the area for breakfast, but this was quite fine.

Overall Thoughts

I really enjoyed my stay at the Kimpton Scofield Hotel in Cleveland. It’s about 10 minutes walk straight down 9th to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the NASA Glenn Visitor Center, which was handy for me as I visited both places. Right across the street is a Heinen’s Grocery Store, which do freshly made food at lunchtime, which I also visited a few times.

From the staff service to the hotel amenities – not to mention that astonishing bathroom – I was impressed. Would I stay here again? Yes, and I am going to be doing just that next month.
