    Lovely hotel

    Overall excellent and pet friendly, although there was no nearby grassy place for pets to relieve themselves.

    Beautiful Hotel

    Hotel was gorgeous. Without dogs I would have given it 5 bones, but my dogs were not comfortable. I’ve traveled with my dogs all over the country and have stayed in a variety of accommodations - while we were here they seemed very anxious, unsettled, and agitated. Staff was very nice, respectful of my dogs, and it was a very clean and beautiful hotel.

    Cat parents: beware the space under the bed

    The place is pretty good, although I wish parking was easier. We had a lot of stuff to unload for our cats, and because it's valet, it was relatively painful to get back to the car after checking it in, since the actual garage isn't on the same building. The real thing is though, under the mattress, there is a ton of space that's completely walled off from human access, but that's super easy for cats to sneak into. We had to push the mattress off the bed to pull them out when we had to leave. It's a safe space in there, but very annoying in that way.

    Wow, loved it!

    Beautiful hotel, wonderful location. They had a bag of doggy treats when we walked in and the room was sumptuous. My only negative comment would be that there was not a grassy area anywhere nearby. But my dog figured out how to poop on the sidewalk and I picked it up! A Chicago friend of mine says that’s what city dogs do!

    Excellent property

    From check in to check out, the staff at the Kimpton could not have done more to make us feel welcome and my pup comfortable. If ever in Cleveland we will be back!!

    They allow dogs, but not necessarily "dog-friendly"

    The hotel is beautiful, our room was clean and it is very nicely located. It is across the street from a grocery store and not far from restaurants. This hotel is listed as dog-friendly, and what that really means is that dogs can stay there. However, I wouldn't call it dog-friendly. There is NOWHERE for dogs to relieve themselves. We have a senior dog, and when I asked Patrick, at the front desk where dogs could go to relieve themselves, he rolled his eyes and said "there's some bushes around back" - the bushes around back are "landscaping" for a parking lot, that is clearly marked "keep your dog off this landscaping" there was glass everywhere. The nearest park was 10 minutes away. Anyone with a senior dog knows that sometimes 3 am potty breaks happen. So, you have to get up, and walk your dog 10 minutes away. They listed several amenities on the page, which weren't included at this hotel. Also, there was a weird, tiny space between the bed and the window, where our poor old buddy got stuck and couldn't turn around. So again, beautiful hotel, but not REALLY dog-friendly.

    No charge for pets but no grass

    Centrally located and no daily charge for multiple dogs but no grass anywhere. The closest place was a patch of dirt near an outside parking lot behind the hotel. No one picked up dog messes and it was gross. No dog amenities at the hotel as mentioned in reviews.

    Perfect First Hotel For Pup!

    We stopped here with our 13 week old puppy, and it was perfect. Our room was big enough for us to set up his crate and still move around easily. We were welcomed with a very cute puppy gift bag, and borrowed bowls as well. The location is great and we met a few other puppies too. on the human side, we love kimpton hotels— very comfortable and easy! The only odd thing was that our room service arrived in a bag rather than a dinner cart, making eating it a little strange. But we would absolutely come back here!

    Lovely hotel, super friendly

    The staff here were incredible, filled all our needs, and treated our pup kindly. They even bring you a dog bed upon request.

    Great staff but challenges

    The hotel staff was amazing and very helpful. This isn’t really the best hotel if you are passing through or traveling across the country with dogs. There was not a bellman on staff to help with bags, which was challenging when I had to valet the car, room on the 7th floor, needed the cart, and had two big dogs. The manager helped me with the cart out of the kindness. There is also no grass anywhere near the hotel and my dogs didn’t like the small mulch spot about a block away. Also while the staff was fantastic about my dogs others staying at the hotel were not and very judgmental. This is a destination hotel if you have dogs.

    Great dog friendly option in downtown Cleveland

    Hotel very quiet, very clean. Very large bathroom suit. We had a king premium room that was roomy enough to set up a large dog crate for our golden and still have room to move around. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the room temp could not be turned below 65 degrees and that was a bit warm for our dog, and the windows are sealed shut so opening them to help cool the room was not an option. Location has very limited green space for walking your dog, but there is a dog park nearby, as well as a nice historic walking trail at Scranton Flats that we drove to and enjoyed.

    My Favorite!

    I have stayed here several times, with and without dogs. It is one of my favorite hotels anywhere. SUPER dog friendly, and I believe the ONLY downtown Cleveland hotel that doesn't charge a pet fee. They do everything they can to make your stay fabulous! As one reviewer stated, it's a few blocks' walk to a green space.

    Very pet friendly

    I found the staff and hotel to be extremely pet friendly, its in a good city location and very clean quiet and nice. Bonus they are eco friendly with compostable packaging for room service and no single use shampoos and lotions! Free coffee and tea. Super helpful as I was all alone with my 2 huskies cross country and were extremely willing to assist carrying etc. Be warned there are ALOT of dogs in this hotel (obviously) so if you have an unfriendly might be tough in the entry which is a very small space. This hotel is smack in the city with valet only and the green space is about 4 blocks away. My country dogs were afraid of the city noise and people when walking I Learned, this is the only reason i give 4 not 5 bones.

    Blown away (literally)

    We stayed at this hotel for only one evening on our trip across the country and we were blown away by the customer service and the tastefully decorated/super clean room. Abigail was outstanding. I work in customer service and she was helpful and genuinely nice person. In fact, the whole staff was not only nice to us but so sweet to both our dogs. The happy hour was a cool way for us to explore the downstairs decor and relax. Lastly the room was so comfortable and clean. We were so blown away by this hotel I’m so sad it’s not closer for more frequent visits. I would definitely return.
