A Place To Roost


Abode2 attends the opening of ROOST Apartment Hotel in Cleveland, marking the city’s first high-design extended stay hotel concept

Opening mid-March in the historic May Company Building, ROOST Cleveland introduces a new type of stay experience, featuring 62 apartments and guest amenities such as a fitness & yoga studio, panoramic rooftop terrace, and three-story open-air atrium.

ROOST Apartment Hotel, the high design extended stay concept from Method Co., the Philadelphia-based hospitality company, announces today, March 15th, as the official opening of ROOST Cleveland at the May Company building on historic Euclid Avenue in downtown. The opening marks the first location outside of Philadelphia for the ROOST brand and the first high-design extended-stay hotel concept for the city of Cleveland.

The newest ROOST, a concept known for bridging a boutique hotel with apartment-style living, offers 62 beautifully-designed loft-like apartments, unique public spaces, and custom guest amenities for travellers looking for both short and long-term accommodations in Cleveland. In partnership with Bedrock, a Cleveland and Detroit real estate developer, this will be the fourth ROOST to open from Method Co., who is doubling their portfolio with additional forthcoming ROOST locations opening in Tampa and Detroit later this year. The newest location introduces the brand’s signature studio, one and two-bedroom apartments to three floors within the May Company building, an adaptive restoration of the iconic department store built by world-renowned architect Daniel Burnham.

“We are thrilled to open ROOST Cleveland in the May Company building in the heart of downtown Cleveland,” said Randall Cook, CEO and Co-Founder of Method Co. “The ROOST units are stunning with the largest floor plans in our portfolio, oversized windows that flood the units with natural light and access to The May’s incredible amenities. There are very few downtown cities that have access to so many major cultural touchpoints in such close proximity, so we are incredibly excited for ROOST to be in the middle of it all.”

Designed and curated by Morris Adjmi Architects & Method Studios, Method Co.’s in-house design firm, all of the ROOST Cleveland apartments are strikingly appointed with contemporary furnishings such as vintage Oushak rugs, functional custom workspaces, unique artwork from Lumas, coffee tables by Danish design house Gubi, and modern light fixtures by Original BTC, among other high-end design sources. ROOST Cleveland guests have access to the brand’s custom amenities, including an in-room artisanal coffee program with La Colombe, a high-end cocktail kit, and signature bike share program, in addition to The May’s amenities, including a three-story open-air atrium, panoramic rooftop terrace with gas grills and city views, a state-of-the-art fitness centre, private yoga studio, and a makerspace.

Acquired by Bedrock in 2017, the May Company building has anchored Cleveland’s Public Square for more than 100 years, when the department store opened in its namesake building in 1915 and where it operated until 1993. It remained primarily vacant until Bedrock commenced an extensive transformation of the property, seeking to restore its most definitive features such as the iconic pediment clock and terra cotta façade. The May welcomed its first residents in August 2020.

“Partnering with ROOST to bring this highly-anticipated extended stay hotel concept to Cleveland has been an exciting opportunity to continue the momentum at The May,” said Andrew Leber, VP of Hospitality at Bedrock. “We look forward to welcoming guests for their short- or long-term stays, where they can experience the attention to detail, proximity to downtown Cleveland’s culture, arts and entertainment scene, and access to the many amenities at The May.”

Considered a leader in the high-design extended stay hotel movement, the ROOST brand currently operates three locations in Philadelphia, in addition to the new ROOST Cleveland. The brand’s significant expansion plans across the United States include a ROOST outpost at the Water Street development in Tampa this spring, while another 118 beautifully furnished apartments are coming later this year within Bedrock’s Book Tower, as part of the rehabilitation of one of Detroit’s most beloved architectural landmarks.
