As you approach The Brownstone Inn, you'll recognize us by the beautiful peacock blue double entrance doors at the top of the stone steps. Then you'll step into the vestibule with its handcrafted opulence of my 19th century Victorian home. On the walls of the grand foyer and on up the stairway you'll see the elegant patented French wallpaper. It was applied in 1976 when my four-story house was renovated in honor of America's 200th bicentennial celebration. To your left, through the tall arched pocket doors is the parlor. There are couches, a reading lamp, an old upright player piano and daily newspapers, making this a convenient place for you to linger. To your right, through another pocket door, is the large Red Dining Room with its marble fireplace. This is where I'll serve you breakfast when the weather forbids eating on the deck. There are also fireplaces in the parlor, in the third-floor bridal suite and the fourth-floor large bedroom.

Awesome Experience

5 on September 25, 2012

We had a wonderful experience at the Brownstone Inn. Room was comfortable and cozy, food was great and the atmoshphere was inviting and friendly. Robin does a great job making your visit a memorable one. The house is a jewel with lots of history and is within walking distance of many things to do. We will be back!

Great Visit!

When in Cleveland, you couldn't ask for a more unique and lovely experience. In a historic building with tremendous charm. Host Rubin is a walking encyclopedia who knows so much about Cleveland's history, culture, and hotspots.

Nice stay

3.2 on July 24, 2012

The house has alot of history and beautiful but our bed was very uncomfortable. There was no tv as stated on the web site. It was quiet and very close to all the attractions. Robin was very helpful in giving tips and directions to wonderful places to visit. Breakfast was ok but not much variety. Our room was clean enough and was cool. Compared to staying in the busy downtown area it was worth it for the quiet. Overall an acceptable visit.

Incredible host and incredible place to stay! Love the Brownstone and Robin!

Not only is the house exquisite & very authentic, but the owner, Robin Yates, is very pleasant, accommodating & knowledgeable for his history!

Worth a visit to Cleveland just to stay there!

This location is between downtown and the art museum. You can take a train from the airport to downtown for just a few dollars. There is a bus stop nearby. I wish I had more time to spend there. I still remember the awesome breakfasts. The host is very gracious. The rooms are very nice and the area is quiet and safe. I was within walking distance of my destination. I am trying to find a reason to visit Cleveland soon so I can bring my wife back to stay here.

Wonderful Stay and Outstanding Hospitality! Best of the Best.

My stay at Brownstone Inn Downtown Cleveland has been a wonderful experience for many reasons. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars in each category, and would recommend this Inn to any visitor of Cleveland without reservation. First, Brownstone Inn is a beautifully restored Victorian building with great period furniture and design. Robin, the owner of the Inn, graciously gave a tour of the floors and explained the history and restoration of the building. The rooms are elegantly appointed. The bed in my room is incredibly comfortable (with very soft and fluffy coverings) - I fell asleep quickly and woke up refreshed. The gorgeous dinning room has a fireplace, adding warmth and coziness to cold, snowy days. Robin, the wonderful owner of the Inn, serves great breakfast in this dinning room each morning. Second, the Inn is at a great location. It is only one block from the Healthline Bus (serves Cleveland Clinic, among others), which can take you to University Circle on the east side (where you will find Cleveland Art Museum, Natural History Museum and Botanic Garden) or Tower City on the west side (where you can catch the Redline to the airport) in a few minutes. I had no trouble finding the Inn at all even though it is my first visit of the city. To grab a quick bite, you will find a Subway within easy walking distance to the Inn. Last but certainly not the least, Robin is the perfect host. Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, he gives easy directions so you can find whatever attraction you may be looking for. He makes Brownstone Inn a home away from home and a perfect choice to stay for a visit of Cleveland.
