Kimpton to open first Ohio hotel in March


Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants plans to open The Schofield Hotel in March, following a $50m renovation of the Schofield Building in Cleveland, Ohio, US.

The Schofield Hotel general manager Adam Gurgiolo said: "Kimpton is excited to bring Cleveland into the next chapter of its renaissance with the city's first and only true luxury boutique hotel.

The Schofield Hotel is the first hotel for Kimpton in Ohio.

The hotel features 122 rooms with six suites and 52 apartments, a banquet covering an area of 3,800ft², a restaurant and bar occupying 4,700ft² across two floors, and a lounge.

"Kimpton is excited to bring Cleveland into the next chapter of its renaissance with the city's first and only true luxury boutique hotel."

The renovation was carried out by local developer CRM Companies. The architecture and interiors wer designed by STUDIOCRM and Warren Red respectively.

The hotel has been named after Levi Scofield, the Ohio architect who originally owned the building.

The restoration process revealed the building's actual terra-cotta façade, which had been hidden behind steel for more than four decades.

Founded in 1981, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants runs more than 60 hotels and more than 70 restaurants, bars and lounges across 30 US cities.
