Best Hotel

Hilton Downtown

Readers' Choice

You could argue whether or not Cuyahoga County should have spent $272 million of taxpayer money building the new downtown Hilton Cleveland hotel, but you can't argue with the class, comfort and style that resulted. Six hundred rooms of sleek style joined the downtown hotel construction boom, thanks to this chic glass high-rise that boasts beautiful views of Lake Erie.

And there's none better than the view from Bar 32, the lounge on the, duh, 32nd floor that has quickly become one of the best places in the city to catch a cocktail and a sunset.
