CLEVELAND, Ohio – The city's new Kimpton hotel, the Schofield, will open next month with some uniquely Cleveland features, including a loaner guitar program and an overnight package that celebrates the city's craft beer scene.
With a nod to Northeast Ohio's historic Barber Match Co., vintage matchbooks have been transformed into custom prints in each room; and American Splendor comic books, by the late Harvey Pekar, will be available for paging through in the lobby.
The $50 million transformation of the former Schofield Building, at the corner of East 9th Street and Euclid Avenue, is nearly complete, after more than five years of renovation work that included the restoration of the building's original terra-cotta façade, covered by steel for the past 40 years.
In addition to 122 hotel rooms and six suites, the 1902 building -- named after the Cleveland architect, Levi Scofield, who designed it – also will feature 52 luxury apartments.http://www.cleveland.com/travel/index.ssf/2016/02/new_kimpton_hotel_the_schofiel.html#incart_river_home
