Colonial Hotel

While in Cleveland, I am staying at the Residence Inn, which sits between the Colonial (1898) and Euclid Arcades (1911).  
Colonial Arcade today.

These arcades run between Euclid and Prospect Avenues with the Euclid arcade located 100 feet west of the Colonial. The Colonial Marketplace project (circa 2000) led to the renovations in and around the arcades, including the opening of the Residence Inn in the former Colonial Hotel.

Last night while sipping free wine, I noticed these stained glass windows along the west side of the room.
And on the ceiling
And asked an employee about them. She explained that the Colonial  hotel was built in the 1800s and during renovations a ceiling was removed exposing the beautiful stained glass ceiling,
