Wow, I am having trouble linking it but should you look at the most recent update for the hotel the pictures are astonishing. The shot of the main lobby is strikingly similar to the rendering and I think it looks really nice. I also really like the shot of the tower surrounded by greenery and behind the glow of the convention center. Anyways, really excited for the opening in 12 1/2 hours.

Looks like the 20th floor has the "red light district" room available.  The building looks sweet by the way.

I have a complaint. The view looking east from the upper floors of the justice center was always enjoyable. But now when you look out those windows in the afternoon or early evening, you see the justice center staring right back at you.

I went to check out the Hilton last night and I was very impressed with it all. My favorite part was that as I approached the hotel from Mall B, there were people standing on the patio of the Burnham restaurant, which faces the Mall. It's great to finally have an establishment adjacent to the Mall that will bring activity all hours of the day. Here are some pictures:











There are great views all around

I took a ton of pictures on the opening day so if i get some time I will post.  The hotel is huge and I was very impressed.  All of the staff seemed super excited to be there and very helpful.  The sky bar or as it is now called "Bar32" is going to VERY popular and the space is stunning.  Cant wait to see the hotel full and busy!

Managed to make my way to Bar 32 today as well as take in the main lobby - kudos to Cooper Carry and the construction team - job well done; pardon the glares and smudges but Cleveland's in high midge season  :yap:

Great photos, MayDay! Isn't it nice to see an out of town firm do their best work in Cleveland? I think this is an awesome addition to the skyline and one of the best overall architectural solutions in Cooper Carry's portfolio.

Great Job to all involved!

Bar 32 at Hilton Cleveland Downtown opens Friday with stellar views (photos)

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The views stir the drink and the bar is ready. Bar 32, located on the 32nd floor of the Hilton Downtown Cleveland, will make its debut on Friday.

Sitting at the top of the 374-foot high hotel, the sleek spot offers spectacular  views of city skyline, Lake Erie, the Cuyahoga River and Lakewood in the distance.

"We asked a number of people what they would like to see most here," says Carolyn Deming, director of public relations at the property. "Overwhelmingly, the wanted a view of the lake and the city."

Bar 32 provides both and fills a void in the process.

While downtown Cleveland has enjoyed explosive growth in bars and restaurants, there is a dearth of high-placed spots in  the city's skyscrapers.

From this vantage point, you can see the seats of the northern end of First Energy., not to mention the Great Lakes Science Center, the rock hall and the Cleveland Steamship William F. Mather.

I agree. Their stuff in the Wash DC area is pretty ho-hum. I was afraid Cleveland would get the same - and the first iteration of the Hilton design started out that way.
There's nothing wrong with optimism, as long as you don't get your hopes up.

^Being forced to shell out $36/day for valet parking (aside from tips) instead of a $10 max fee day rate for the garage -- on top of an already steep Hilton room rate + a guzzilion taxes and fees... Yeah, I'd be pissed, too.

from the article cited above:

"The county hired Massachusetts-based CHMWarnick to manage the assets of the hotel. The hotel's operating fund paid for the three-year, $675,000 contract with the company. The company oversees property management and financial performance..........

According to information from Hilton in 2014, the initial fee for a new Hilton hotel was $75,000, plus $400 for each additional guest room or suite over 250.

Monthly payments include a royalty fee of 5 percent and program fee of 4 percent, both from monthly gross rooms revenue, the Hilton information said. A monthly fee is 3 percent of food and beverage revenue."

How does this work? The County owns the hotel, hires a management company (for only $200k a year?) which sets the prices and other details and Hilton just operates it? Or does it Hilton run it as a business and takes a cut? what does the 'management company' do?  Just trying to figure out who does what, including the owner.
