“Big bright rooms in a downtown location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2011

The hotel is still under some renovation (September 2011), but what has been done so far is very successful. We had a corner room with huge windows and lots of light. There is a kitchenette (fridge, microwave, and sink), a big jetted tub, separate shower, big flat screen tv.
To merely say it is big does not do it justice, and it is attractive as well with wonderful hardwood floors and a very comfortable king bed.

The hotel does not have the usual lobby (at least not yet) and when I entered I was not sure I was in the right place, as it is a big space with other things like signs for restaurants in the building. However, there is a mezzanine on the second level that has tables and chairs and even two pool tables. It is here that they serve breakfast - plain and cheese omelettes, biscuits, pastries, toast, bagels, English muffins, cereal, coffees and teas, and juice, along with USA Today.

The elevators are small and not yet renovated, so they are a little banged up. But they are adequate to the task. There are washers and driers on each floor. There was no ice machine on our floor although it was shown on the in-room map. I think it just has not arrived, and we only had to go one floor to get ice.

This is about 3 blocks from Public Square, and just down the street from the theater district.

It is a real find in a downtown location.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have extra light and better views.

This hotel was under renovation when we stayed here for a mid-week concert trip July 26 - 28th, 2011. We liked the free continental breakfast that was provided each morning. The hotel was close enough that we could walk to the Quicken Loans area. The front desk staff was awesome! The room we had was HUGE. We will definitely be back.

My boyfriend and I along with his teenagers were visiting Cleveland from Long Island to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of fame and the zoo. This hotel is not your average holiday inn express as you would expect in suburbs. We really felt as if we were at an upscale luxury hotel. The room we booked was a 2 queen bedroom. It was huge with nice hard wood floors and a great view. The windows were enormous and the ceilings were very high. The room was extremely clean. We were on the thirteen floor. It got the "wow!" comment from the kids as we walking in. We travel a lot and have been in many hotels. It was a very well maintained old building. I think it used to be a bank. The fitness room was also great. The free breakfast was very good and the service at the breakfast was fabulous. We played in the game room and also played pool. I wish we could have stayed more than one night. Cleveland was a charming city. I highly recommend this hotel. The price was so reasonable for what was offered by this hotel.

My husband and I were in Cleveland to visit a patient at the Cleveland Clinic. Since all 3 of the hotels on the clinic's campus were booked we were referred to Holiday Inn Express. I wish we would have gone somewhere else.
The service wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either.
The cleanliness was what ultimately made us check out early and find another hotel.
The floor of out hotel room was disgusting, no exageration. My husband's socks were black after walking around for 3 or 4 hours and my daughters bare feet were black as well. I had to wash her feet in the sink before i put her down for a nap in the bed.
When we checked out and discussed our issue with the manager she wasn't overly eager to apologize. In fact, she suggested it was our fault since we didn't have service the first day we were in town. By that point we didn't care if we were compensated we just wanted to get out.
One positive aspects of the hotel is how unique it is. It's an old bank, every room has high ceilings and hardwood floors. VERY spacious!!

We've stayed here multiple times and will absolutely stay here again. Perfect for Browns/Indians/Cavs games all within easy walking distance, and one of the cleanest hotels you'll find. It's a bit odd- an older bank building converted into a hotel, so the rooms are oversized with 13 foot ceilings and hardwood floors (the television is miles from the bed)- but we really like it. The breakfast is one of the best you'll find in this kind of hotel, and the staff (especially at the breakfast) is wonderful. Parking is half a block away in a city garage- we kept the car there so it was no problem and not overly expensive for downtown parking

We stayed here overnight on a cross-country drive. The location is right downtown and near to the Hall of Fame and to the stadium, as well as the restaurants and club scene. The building is very interesting, and appears to be a former bank. Consequently, the rooms are a little peculiar. Our room was on an upper floor and not only had the customary bed, desk and bathroom, but also had a very large jacuzzi tub next to the bathroom, in the living space of the room. It was just ... odd.

The room we reserved had a king bed and we needed a cot for our 10 year old. When we checked in ... no cot. We requested a cot at the desk. And then called down again. And again. And once more. It was well past midnight by the time the cot finally arrived.

To be fair, the hotel was booked solid, with fans from a Taylor Swift concert and an Indians game staying overnight. One would expect, though, that the hotel would schedule enough people to accomodate the demand.

The breakfast, in the mezzanine area - again, a peculiarity of the building, a floor cut off from the lobby and the rest of the hotel - was inedible. The food served was just dreadful.

The staff were very, very nice, if you could get hold of someone. My sense was that on this occasion, they were just overwhelmed.

We stayed at Holiday Inns and Holiday Inn Express locations throughout our cross-country jaunt, and every other experience was positive. This location, however, did not meet the same standards of quality and service we enjoyed at other locations.

This hotel in a converted bank building is a gem in downtown Cleveland. We booked on Hotwire and got a phenomenal rate and were SHOCKED when this room had 15' ceilings, hardwood floors, two queen beds and enough space for a small party. The location is walking to distance to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Lake Erie and an awesom row of restaurants and bars just blocks from the hotel. Newly remodeled and still in process, this property will be the go-to spot for Cleveland-goers in the future!
