The Arcade is one of those places where even high quality photography doesn't really do it justice, you need to see it for yourself in person. Only by being inside of it do you get the proper sense of scale. I liked this place a lot the first time I walked through, which was before noon. I came back a... More

This is worth the time just to see the architecture. Absolutely beautiful! Takes only a few minutes, but can spend more time on a drink, snack, lunch or shopping.

It is a very nice structure and the craftsmanship that went into its construction is to be commented about. But, when I visited here a few years ago, there were a lot more people and there was a lot more things going on inside.

I had heard about the Old Arcade and when in Cleveland for a weekend wedding my wife and I had a free Sunday afternoon so we stopped by to check the place out. the internal architecture was as promised stunning. Done in the style of Greek Revival it reminded us of the Arcade in Luxembourg except this one is four... More

The old arcade is one of my favorite places in the city of Cleveland. Are all the shops full? No they're not, but who cares? This is by far one of the most architecturally beautiful places in the city. In its heyday, back in the late 1800s and throughout most of the 1900s it was a place for upscale shopping.... More

Great place to visit while in Cleveland. It also houses the Hyatt and a few shops/restaurants but mostly worthy for its architecture.

We were at the Arcade on June 22. It is a Victorian-era building. One of the first indoor malls. A lot of the stores are empty. It takes you only a few minutes to admire the architecture of the old days.

It's sad really; the architecture is amazing, but nothing can mask the fact that the place is empty and the only people in it are architecture or photo buffs. Not unlike several areas of Cleveland, great architecture, but little happening.

Only a shell of its former self, this historic Arcade (dating from late 1800's), was modeled after the first indoor multi-use facility in Milano Italy (2 centuries ago). It is still spectacular for Architectural history and Photography. The re-birth of downtown has helped bring more retail back into the Arcade, which is now part of the Hyatt Hotel. Often used...

Beautiful historical building sadly devoid of shops to lure the tourists. If you are downtown, definitely visit, but it isn't worth planning a trip around The Arcade. Hopefully, The Hiatt will bring new life to venue.
