"The old Metropole Hotel survives in the restored terrazzo floor, curving staircase, arched windows, and ornate plasterwork of 21c, its every corner, from the 156 guest rooms to the nine-story solarium, a showcase for contemporary art. Much of it is playful and witty, such as the trademark four-foot yellow penguins that pop up in elevators and hallways," is how Conde Nast describes the hotel.
Conde Nast started with 1,000 new hotels worldwide, then whittled it down to 200, in 57 countries. They sent reporters to identify the best, and came up with the list.
The boutique hotel is showing on its website rooms first available Nov. 27, with nightly rates starting at $259 and running up to $519 for a suite. The hotel will have 156 guest rooms, business meeting space, a spa and a rooftop bar.
The hotel is located on Walnut Street across from the Aronoff Center.
