BLU-Tique Hotel, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, opens in Akron Ohio’s Historic Arts District
An Experience that Transcends Time
Akron, Ohio, June 8, 2022 — Riley Hotel Group is pleased to announce that the highly anticipated BLU-Tique Hotel will be making its debut as a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Marriott International's newest collection of characterful independent hotels.
BLU-Tique Hotel is a one-of-a-kind destination that offers the opportunity to step back from the noise & worries of the present day and into an inspired & creative atmosphere rich with culture and character. Our modern hotel fuses iconic jazz music & art with a mid-century vibe.
Located at the corner of Main & Market in the Historic United 1 Building in the heart of Akron's Historic Arts District, it is a place where culture, art, dining, music, and diversity seamlessly blend to create an experience that transcends time.
Make your stay memorable in one of our 71 thoughtfully designed spacious rooms & suites, all with extraordinary views of downtown Akron. Our team, led by Riley Hotel Group, is committed to providing personalized service with grace and sincerity.
In the heartbeat of downtown Akron, our location is steps away from the Towpath Trail (110-mile Hike Bike Trail), the Cuyahoga Scenic Valley Railroad, and the Akron Art Museum, which is across the street from our property. Enjoy scenic views of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park from your guest room, all while being within walking distance of a plethora of entertainment venues.
BLU-Tique guests will be able to earn and redeem Marriott Bonvoy points and enjoy the advantages of Marriott Bonvoy's award-winning loyalty program during their stay.
Our top priority has always been our guests, employees, and the community's safety, health, and well-being. We have enhanced our cleaning and sanitation procedures to align with Marriott International's Commitment to Clean policy, so you can dine & sleep in a safe and comfortable environment.
Food & Beverage
It wouldn’t be jazz without a cocktail in hand. Delight your palette at The 1 Food & Spirits, our on-site restaurant & lounge, with a delicious hand-crafted cocktail and thoughtfully curated menu of small plates, flatbreads, salads, and chef plates from Executive Chef Frank Zifer. Let the melody of flavors envelop you while enjoying the ambiance of a speakeasy with amazing views from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
Meetings & Events
BLU-Tique offers intimate meeting room spaces for various events, including small bridal showers, business meetings, corporate retreats, and other social events.
