Member Highlight

The Hotel at Oberlin

From their website:

"Anchoring the Peter B. Lewis Gateway Center, The Hotel at Oberlin is nestled in the heart of downtown Oberlin, Ohio overlooking historical Tappan Square and just steps from Oberlin College.

Built to incorporate renewable energy systems and other innovative technologies. The Hotel at Oberlin is designed to meet the US Green Building Council’s LEED Platinum Rating, making it one of the most environmentally sustainable hotel projects in the US. Using locally sourced materials and thoughtful, provocative design, The Hotel at Oberlin is a celebration of the community’s rich history and progressive vision toward the future.

Named after the year that both the City of Oberlin and Oberlin College were founded by John Jay Shipherd and Philo P. Stewart- our signature restaurant, 1833, is centered on the people who grow food for themselves, their friends, their neighbors, and the larger community. 1833 features small plates and social fare simply put as the "perfect bite". Our socially driven menus offer heightened awareness and partnering with the farmer sharing the importance of their story through the thought and care put in our food."
