The Metropolitan at the 9

By Connect Staff, February 10, 2015

Named for the street it sits on in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, The 9 is a new luxury resort that aims to put guests on—what else?—cloud nine. The chic four-star hotel has unusual event spaces and atypical amenities, including four historic bank vaults that can be used for breakout sessions, an indoor dog park with dog-walking services and a 2,400-sq.-ft. leather recliner-filled theater for presentations.

The Autograph Collection hotel’s 14,000 square feet of high-tech meeting space is spread throughout the property’s 10 stories. Ascend to Adega, a 2,000-sq.-ft. elevated dining area with a large capacity. An adjacent 8,000-sq.-ft. indoor/outdoor rooftop terrace at Azure hosts festive gatherings during warmer months.

In the belly of the hotel is the 5,100-sq.-ft. Mint Ballroom, adorned with dozens of handmade crystal chandeliers. Artistic elements aren’t limited to this area: The lobby’s dramatic rotunda features 13 murals by the artist Francis Davis Millet from the early 1900s. The 9 is within walking distance to Quicken Loans Arena and Progressive Field, while The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is less than a mile away. It’s a short drive from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, the West Side Market and Cleveland Museum of Art. Animal-loving attendees with their pooches in tow may be happy to know Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is also nearby.
