Location and Design
Hotel Versailles’ roots are intertwined with industry, machinery, and a strong French heritage and all of those aspects fed into the historic revival design from acclaimed local firm, Kimberly O. Design, which illustrates French-inspired sophistication and elegance in an architecturally striking space . The property’s distinct sense of history comes alive through everything from the building’s simple brick exterior structure and large glass and steel windows to the artistic patterns and color palette of the textiles and furniture. From the focal point private dining room table in Silas Creative Kitchen crafted by Hayrake Furniture Company in Minster, Ohio, to the center piece window banquette chandelier created by Glass Asylum in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, all furnishings and artwork adorning the hotel, its restaurant, and private event space, is exclusively made by local Ohio companies and artisans.
