We arrived in Cleveland on a Friday night and called the hotel for a shuttle ride to the hotel. It arrived at the airport promptly and the driver was friendly and helpful. The front desk was efficient, quick and friendly. When we arrived in our room it was immaculate and cool. We were in Cleveland for a convention at the... More

Easy to get to right off of the interstate. The hotel has a nice bar on the main floor, with lots of activity, there was a pretty good band playing there the last night of my stay. Unlike I've seen in other reviews, my room was cleaned promptly every day during my stay. My only complaint is the wifi, granted... More

It is hard to know where to begin with this review because our hotel visit was so horrible. The check-in was fine, the front desk agent was polite and even had a fridge delivered to my room for my son's food to be stored. That was the only good thing about this hotel. I booked the hotel for 5 nights... More

My wife and I stayed here for three days in July. We were in town for a fan club get-together. There was a group rate of 89-/night so I thinking the hotel would be nothing special. I was surprised- staff everywhere and friendly, a great pool area and exercise room, and good facilities. Our room was nice, the bed comfortable,... More

Not a good hotel, and I wouldn't stay here again. There are many other good hotels right in this area from which to chose. The room itself was o.k., although the carpet was dirty and disgusting. The room service was almost non-existent. They came late every day - like after 3:00 P.M., and they did very little actual cleaning. I... More

I stayed at this hotel for a fan club convention. The rooms were spacious, clean, quiet. The bed in my room had a pillowtop mattress and was comfortble. There was also a pull out sofa-bed. I had reserved a refrigerator for a one time $10 fee. It was larger than a standard hotel fridge. There is no micowave, at least... More
