light bulbs

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at the Wonderful Westin Cleveland Downtown, which is the most upscale, beautiful hotel in downtown Cleveland. Not to mention the friendly and accommodating staff that only added to the amazing experience we had here. We have stayed at pretty much every hotel downtown over the last several years, but this hotel is by far the most gorgeous and sophisticated hotel in Cleveland. This newly renovated hotel has something for everyone and they thought of everything down to the last detail when picking out the theme and décor. For example, the picture featured above is a spectacular light fixture filled with 1600 light bulbs that were placed by hand into the fixture. There are multiple fixtures like this in the lobby and it took hours upon hours to create these one-of-a-kind light fixtures. Can you just imagine if one fell in and broke? They would probably have to empty out the entire thing and start from scratch!

We took a tour of this amazing facility and my favorite room was the ballroom (above) which could be used for conferences, however, would be absolutely stunning for a wedding. After all, the light fixtures in this room remind me of wedding bands and the pictures do not do them justice. They are even more gorgeous in person.

The unique art sculpture above really caught my eye. Everything at the hotel is environmentally friendly, including this sculpture made out of trees. We were actually told to touch the sculpture because the artist said the oils from your hands help to enhance the health of the wood. I can’t imagine how long it took to create this unique sculpture that I believe started as styrofoam.

room bed

Now moving on to the actually hotel rooms/suites…absolutely beautiful, yet extremely comfortable. The most important thing to me when I stay at a hotel is having a comfortable bed, and my expectations were exceeded in that area. I slept like a baby! I also loved the way the bathroom was decorated, as it was so pristine and modern.

room

We actually stayed in a suite, so we had the spacious room (above) to be able to relax and have a glass of wine before dinner. My husband could not get over how big the TV’s were in both the living room area and the bedroom. Like I said, they thought of everything when completing the renovations.

VIP lounge

With access to the VIP lounge (above), we were able to get a drink and a bite to eat at any time of the day. This lounge is absolutely gorgeous and looking out the window (below), you can see an awesome view of the Browns stadium, the lake, etc. We had a delicious breakfast in here as well and I really enjoyed the Belgian waffles, fresh fruit and bagels with salmon and cream cheese.

workout 2

You all know that I love to work out, so I could not get over their awesome workout and fitness facility. It sounds like some big-time athletes stay here when they are in town, so this is the perfect place for them to get in a great workout without having to leave the property. I was so impressed with all of the newest, latest and greatest workout equipment.

All in all, this was an amazing experience and I would not stay at any other hotel in Cleveland. I give it five stars out of five stars!
