“Conveniently located to Aultman.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

I needed a place to stay when my mother was in Aultman Hospital and as I live about an hour away, driving back and forth didn't make much sense. The McKinley Grand is located about five to eight minutes away (depending on the time of day) from the hospital, has an attached parking garage with a skyway so there is no crossing the busy streets with all your luggage and the rooms were very nice and the housekeeping staff was really amazing at bringing everything back to like-new status while I was out. It's a basic hotel but it was nice and quiet in my room, even with a wedding reception going on the weekend I stayed there.

Room Tip: As mentioned in a previous review, the hallways are very long and my room happened to be all the way...

We booked through priceline! so I was very worried about the hotel.(Because once you book thru priceline your stuck with whatever room they give you. usually hotels are so upset you got a deal thru priceline that they give you the smallest room that they have lol) It was just ok. The lobby was Nice...but the rooms were clean yet extremely dated with flat screen tv's the end

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the elevator so you don't have to walk far.( long hallways)

My only reason for staying at this location was for convenience reason. The starting line for the race I was running (at 6am) was right outside the front door of the hotel.
The lobby is beautiful, but the rooms are starting to show their age. Parking and a continental breakfast was included in the rate.
Overall, the hotel served its purpose. I got a good night's sleep and was able to walk out the front door to the starting line of my race. Would I stay here if I weren't running a race at 6am? No. There are plenty of less-expensive options one exit north on the highway.

Everyone we encountered was very helpful. The rooms were spacious and very clean. I loved the old hotel feeling and the antique cars were fun to look at. We had dinner in the restuarant that was very nice too. Parking in the garage which was free, had a walk way access that made it easy to get to the hotel. I would stay here again

If you plan on visiting Canton, be sure to stay downtown at the McKinley Grand. It would put you in mind of an old hotel but is only 27 years old and is just beautify. The rooms are nicely appointed, nice pool area and a very friendly staff. Especially, Dennis the young man who drives the shuttle.

I was here for a friend's wedding and was shocked by the difference in the beauty of the ballroom compared to the state of the guest rooms. Check in was less than stellar from the Front Office Manager - never even mentioned there was an antique car museum in the lower level or a skybridge to and from the parking garage! Staff does not wear uniforms except for banquets. That was weird. If I came back to Canton, I would not stay here unless I was attending an event in their gorgeous ballroom.

I found this hotel on Expedia and decided to try it. This location, while centrally located for the historical sites of Canton & less than 5 miles from the Football Hall of Fame has definitely seen better days. The lobby is well appointed, but that is where the luxuries stop. Parking is also not included so it was suggested that we park on the side street which had free parking until 8AM & then 2-hour metered parking thereafter. So I to be up and gone by 8 AM.

Room Tip: Don't plan on sleeping in because someone has to feed the meter. No fridge.
