Horrible food, bed didn't work (sleep number bed), rooms where rough and very dingy. Would spend more to get more. They didn't have the staff to operate the location. Look elsewhere for better amenities, food, and quality.

I have stayed here a few times before and each time I ask myself why? I guess this may have been a branded hotel long ago but no corporation would fly their flag at this place. It's hard to believe they make no effort to change the 80's decor or even have decent lighting in the lobby. It looks like... More

After a grueling day at Akron Children's Hospital, I desperately needed a good night's sleep and a hot shower. Alas, it was not to be. The floor was dirty, used tissues under the bed skirt, hairs (short and curlys) on the shower curtain, NO HOT WATER, the sleep number bed would not adjust and not TV remote. When I called... More

Location and Price. These are the reasons I stayed here 3 times in the last few months. I was visiting Akron Children's Hospital and needed to stay within walking distance. It is located in downtown Akron just a few steps away from Main Street where there are a number of restaurants and of course the Rubber Ducks. The price was... More

This once grand hotel is not going to be here forever given how few people were staying there. The lobby was empty, the lounge was closed, and one lone clerk worked the desk. No wonder when I called they said I did not need a reservation. The hotel is in the heart of downtown Akron, the parking lot is extremely... More

Our stay was on a Saturday night, and there were only 20 cars in the parking garage, We didn't see anybody on our way in or out. The only good thing about it was it is clean. However our non-smoking room smelled like somebody was smoking in it. The heater did not work in the room, The sleep number bed... More

I read these reviews and have to say that this is not the worst place to stay. It is not fancy and new but has a lot of character. The room whirlpools are huge. We have had a few issues with our rooms: 1) first visit we had a faulty bed. We made one call and 15minutes later we had... More

Not the best hotel I have ever stayed at, but lets face it, downtown Akron is probably not a bustling tourist location. If you are wanting to stay downtown, this is pretty much your only option. It is definitely aged and in bad need of an upgrade.

I came here for a work trip and found the rooms to be unclean and gross. I had wet carpet by the air conditioning unit and they said that it was normal. So, I guess mold in the carpet is a normal thing. I went to dinner with my co-workers and we all decided to switch hotels. When we got... More
