I live in Cleveland and work downtown. At one time this arcade was filled with stores and restaurants, but nearly all of them have vacated the building. A better bet for shoppers and people seeking lunch is the 5th Street Arcades, across the street and a little east of the Old Arcade. The Old Arcade is more of a photo... More

There are two Arcades on Euclid Ave. almost across the street from each other. One was built in 1890 and has been restored to its original grandeur. Entering from Euclid there is a lower level of stores and offices. The main floor has stores the entire length with the Hilton Hotel lobby off to one side. The upper floors are... More

Unfortunately, the entire complex is pretty dead inside. The top two floors are devoted to Hyatt Hotel guest rooms, and the bottom two floors largely devoted to hotel related services (restaurant, spa, coffee stand). Go see the arcade for the architectural detail -- and nothing more. You will be disappointed in the dining and shopping options for sure.

This place is so empty it is sad. No shopping, little food choices (other than the Chocolate Bar) and not much to do. We were there a a Saturday, and it was very quite.

This is a hidden gem of 19 century architecture in downtown Cleveland. It is absolutely worth a walk-through. Beautiful, beautiful place. Sadly most of the stores are closed. When I was a young boy this was a busy teaming area of activity. Just imagine what the city used to be when this was filled with bustling shops, shoppers and activity.... More

Treat yourself and stroll through this arcade. Don't miss the two arcades across Euclid, also! The shopping is not great, but it's worth a stroll through.

Stopped in from reading a few reviews online, very beautiful when the sun is shining through. Not many shops were occupied but it seemed like a nice area to sit and read a book or relax. Restaurants seemed enticing. The gold details are beautiful in the sunlight. Wished there were more things to do. We visited on a tuesday afternoon.... More

Oldest indoor shopping center, now next to Hyatt downtown. Went on a Sunday morning as leaving Cleveland, so the shops were closed. Our tour guide said it was our "homework assignment", and I'm glad we complied. The symmetry and the craftsmanship are gorgeous. During normal business hours has post office, eating places, Starbucks, etc.

Very nice and beautiful place to visit. It looks like a hotel building, rather than a mall. Decoration and atmosphere is quite different.

This is the Arcade that is "in" the Residence Inn. Just a very cool little place. Not many stores, but interesting. Doesn't take long to stroll thru.
