Worst hotel experience EVER! Wish I'd have read some of these reviews before deciding to stay at this place. The only positive aspect was the location because we could walk to the Akron Civic Theater for our concert. First we had a horrible time finding this place. We finally find it & get parked & head into the lobby. It... More

Stayed one night in a jacuzzi "suite" on the 9th floor. Stood in the front lobby for ten minutes waiting to check-in. I should have walked out and never looked back! The girl at the front desk finally showed up, out of breath and sweaty, apologizing and saying she had to go to the bank before it closed which is... More

Where to begin -- the ghost town feel the minute walk into the lobby, the lengthy check-in process with inability to process a credit card, the dim lighting on the room floor, the creepiness of most of the hotel's 20 floors completely empty and dark (finally found ice on the only other occupied floor), the outdated and dingy room décor,...

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
