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.

Beautiful architecture that leads to 3 floors of shops and administrative offices. Great chocolate bar downstairs. Everyone very friendly. Shops on street are worth the trip with several restaurants and bars. Very active on weekend nights.

The building is worth the walk inside - just to see the architecture and beauty of it. However, there is absolutely nothing to do inside. It's connected to the Hyatt (?) hotel and all of the little stores inside were closed on the Sunday we visited, but that was okay b/c we just wanted to see inside and look up.

You can tell that Cleveland is trying to refurbish some of its old buildings. Take some time and visit the Old Arcade in downtown Cleveland. There are a host of restaurants and shops. Be warned that some of the shops close for no reason with no signs of when the merchants will return. The Baseball History museum is a GEM.... More
