Monday April 21st, 2014 - 9:34AM

AURORA, OH—The Aurora Inn, recently acquired by Aurora Hotel Partners, LLC, led by Dan Bliss, Stephen Mansfield and Matt Lopatin, will undergo a renovation of its 69 rooms, restaurant, bar, lobby, ballroom and the hotel’s indoor and outdoor pools.

Bliss, who is originally from Aurora, stated, “For many years, the Aurora Inn was known as a destination for great food and a vibrant bar.  Sadly, that was lost over the years.  We expect to turn that around and restore the hotel’s stature in Northeast Ohio.”

HGTV celebrity designer Genevieve Gorder will oversee the design of the hotel, adding her sense of style throughout the property.  Cleveland-based architect David Krebs of AODK will work closely with Gorder and handle architectural duties.

Bliss, Mansfield and Lopatin have hired Riley Hotel Group of Medina to manage the hotel.
