Best Downtown Oasis 

Brett Hall, Main Library

Sometimes the need hits to escape the office or, if fortune hasn't been smiling, the park bench. A great place to hide and get some work done is lovely Brett Hall, on the first floor of the Cleveland Public Library's Main Building. The room is of Renaissance design, with classical Roman details; murals of the city adorn the panels above the four portals. This being the Digital Age and all, patrons can be found staring at computer screens, while the tables -- where you can spread out with actual books, magazines, and newspapers -- sit empty.
