The magazine lists the lobby as 14 among 27 of “the best.”

“Located in a landmarked arcade building in downtown Cleveland, the Hyatt Regency’s breathtaking lobby gives a spectacular view of the entire building, while the glass ceiling fills the space with natural light,” the article reads.

The hotel was constructed in 1890 and was fully restored in 2001.

According to Sandvick Architects, a Cleveland-based company specializing in the historic preservation of architecture that was involved in the building’s revitalization, “the internationally renowned structure underwent meticulous restoration of its public spaces to return the building to its former glory.”

The architectural firm describes the hotel as “one of Cleveland’s most iconic buildings” and said it was the first building in Cleveland to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The hotel now plays host to many weddings and formal events. You can learn more here.
