The historic Aurora Inn Hotel & Event Center, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member, will host a Grand Reopening celebration on October 13th in honor of its completed renovation coupled with its 90-year anniversary. Designed and inspired by New-York based designer Genevieve Gorder, of HGTV fame, the 3-year remodeling of the Western Reserve landmark property mixes the beauty, grace and serene dignity of an earlier century with today’s modern finishes. The Inn’s legendary reputation for food, atmosphere and events is reclaimed through its newly-crafted space.
“I’m pleased to announce the rebirth of the historic Aurora Inn,” said General Manager Jason Sandoval. “After 90 years, the hotel has been harmoniously restored to its original beauty, designed for the comfort of today’s savvy traveler.” On Friday, October 13th, the public is invited to stop by during the afternoon beginning at 12 pm to join city officials in a Grand Reopening ribbon-cutting, walk the picturesque grounds and participate in guided tours, enjoy a selection of Chef’s menu tastings, or enter in a raffle for the chance to win door prizes. The Open House/Birthday Party will dovetail into an outdoor concert performance to start at 8:30 pm by Heartbreaker, a Heart and Joan Jett tribute band.
When it first opened in 1927, The Aurora Inn was a “pleasant pause” for weary travelers in a crossroads town. The intimate refuge became a gathering place for the local community and celebrities, hosting legends like Rosemary Clooney and Paul Newman, before losing its luster over time. Now under new ownership, the revitalized Inn promotes genuine cordiality of yesteryear inside a chic new setting. The charming, 66-room property, owned by Aurora Hotel Partners LLC and managed by Portfolio Hotels & Resorts, pays respect to its celebrated past while providing guests with the modern amenities of a luxury hotel.
Genevieve, who hosts the “Dear Genevieve” show on the HGTV channel, was the lead designer in The Aurora Inn remodeling. The beloved American designer applied her special talents and skills to update many areas, including the Six Horses Tavern, The Cutting Board Restaurant,…
