Where to Stay - Eat - Drink for Football Game

Planning on attending Akron's opening football game on Memorial weekend. Have not been to Akron before. Any advice on hotels that are nice and convenient to the University? Also looking for restaurants for dinner and breakfast? And, is there a section of town that's good for pre & post game drinks/entertainment?

Thank you

You could stay in the "Montrose" area, in Fairlawn. There are alot of restaurants and stores in that area, including a ton of hotels. Location is a bit north west of downtown Akron. if you do a search for hotels in Fairlawn, lots of hits come up - this area is on Route 18 east of I-77 - also known as West Market.

Arlington Road Exit off of 77 maybe a 5 min drive on highway to campus. Very Easy Drive. But def. eat drink party and play downtown. It is small but lots to offer.
