The Doubletree Bedford Glen, with its hopping outdoor scene at Bistro 44, is a classic case of business up front, party in the back. A band plays under the pergola, beef kebabs sizzle on the grill, and diners relax on lounge furniture near a fire pit. This patio may be Bedford's best-kept secret, but why let the sales force from Cleveland have all the fun?
