Hyatt Regency Cleveland

I choose the Hyatt because it was close to the action and the price was right... with the correct corporate discount code.  Interesting location in the historic old Arcade, one of the first indoor shopping centers in the country when it opened in 1890.   Beautiful interior but pretty depressing as the place was virtually empty any time we were there.  But the hotel was a big meh, old and dated, even the renovated rooms, with two separate banks of elevators at opposite ends of the building.  Our Platinum upgraded rooms weren't available when we checked in around 12:30pm.  We took anything so we could get a little sleep and wait for the 2nd room.

After a 45 minute nap, I headed for the empty bar plugged my laptop and did some work.  Across the street from the Arcade and the hotel bar.

Finally, at around 3pm, my room was ready.  I waited for this??  LOL.

At least there was a view, of E. 4th Street.
