Contemporary Art Comes First at 21c Museum Hotel Cincinnati

Remodelista Team June 18, 2013

This post is brought to you by 21c Museum Hotels.

Building on its mission of engaging the public with contemporary art and supporting the revitalization of American downtowns, 21c Museum Hotels renovated the 100-year-old Metropole Hotel building–a historic landmark in downtown Cincinnati–restoring it into a contemporary art museum and cultural center against the backdrop of Cincinnati’s Backstage District.

Across the street from the Aronoff Center for the Arts and next to the Contemporary Arts Center, 21c Cincinnati features 8,000 square feet of exhibition, meeting and event space that all present rotating, curated exhibitions and site-specific art installations. Designed by Deborah Berke, the building was restored following federal standards for historic rehabilition and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The 21c Museum Hotel is located at 609 Walnut Street in downtown Cincinnati.

Above: Berke and 21c Museum Hotel’s design team created a space that respects and preserves the character of this once grand hotel, while creating a space to show the work of living artists.

Above: Much of the building’s original features were preserved: a sweeping staircase leading to the second floor ballroom and the original mosaic tile floors in the restaurant and elevator lobby.

Above: The Corner Suite includes a dining and sectional sitting area, wet room with double vanity, tub and glass enclosed shower.

Above: The Spa at 21c features three treatment rooms including a couple’s spa suite with en-suite whirlpool tub, steam shower with skylight and heated floors. The Spa offers a range of treatments from facials and massages to pampering spa packages.

Above: The Metropole restaurant offers a contemporary take on old world fireplace cooking technique. A showcase for the region’s sustainable farmers and producers, Metropole’s well-edited and ever changing menu features hearth roasted mats, fish and vegetables; grains; and house made charcuterie.
