Teach the kids some history, and take them to the Arcade. It's a glorious spot, once one of America's first shopping malls, and financed by none other than John D. Rockefeller.

What a fantastic, well-preserved specimen of yesteryear. Photos do not do justice to this incredible structure. I highly recommend that you take the 10 minutes from your day to visit this place, as there are few examples left in America. Happily, much is now being used as hotel rooms, which gives purpose to the structure. On the flip side, the... More

Shops and all the folks we spoke with were very helpful. It was a pleasure to walk around and learn so much history and see preservation of such a building.

There aren't many shops or restaurants though. I wouldn't go out of my way to see this, but if you are passing by and a first-timer in Cleveland, then definitely walk... More

This place is cooler than the other side of the pillow. Remodeled in 2001 it is a Masterpiece. Shops and restaurants as well as the Hyatt Hotel. But, just the building is incredible.

The magnificence of this place still blows me away so many years after first visiting... I wonder if the Sterling, Linder, Davis tree would fit in here. And could they please bring back Francis the Talking mule and his gifts too?!!! Maybe even Mr. Jingaling could make an appearance! What a neat arcade and way to get from Euclid to... More

The staff at this hotel was amazing! We had our wedding reception here in September 2014 and we could NOT have asked for a more amazing location! Our guests loved the architecture, the food was amazing, the staff was helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process. We received many compliments from our guests about the convenience of the hotel located... More

What a beautiful, old building. Shame it's half empty of trading shops etc. If you're in the area it's well worth a look, it is awesome and well preserved. It opens at the back end into a hotel so at night you need that hotels room key to get into the place. It could be so much more, in reality... More

Walked through on the way to and from an E 4th restaurant. We parked on the north side with the valet and it was the cheapest one in the area that night at $8. There was a private party on the main floor so we walked around on the second level. What an architectural gem from the ceiling to the... More

The architecture is a sight to see. Many shops were vacant or closed, but the building alone is worth viewing.
