“A few Pros and Cons... overall a nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

A gorgeous hotel... renovated from an turn-of-the-century office building. The common areas are all gorgeous, and the rooms are nice with hardwood floors and soaring ceilings. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The cons: no internet in my room... did not work for almost the entire stay, so I had to go to the Mezzanine level to do work. No ethernet in the rooms either as a backup, and staff didn't even give me a phone number to call the provider (not that that often helps). They forgot my wake-up call... a big no-no. The HVAC in my room was very, very loud. My room had a jacuzzi tub, which is nice, however the shower is in the jacuzzi as well. This is an odd arrangement that requires some dexterity and grace climbing into the tub. The tub itself was not properly cleaned (there was nastiness in some corners). This room had a kitchenette with no microwave, and a fridge that didn't fit under the counter, so it awkwardly sits right in front. Good thing the room was large enough so that wasn't a problem.

Overall, despite the above problems, this is a great hotel in a great location. LOt's of restaurants nearby. 9/10

Had to stop in Cleveland as I had missed Drew Carey on tour in my hometown so tried to capture the essence of the man and the Browns , my second NFL team , by visiting his hometown . And what a great spot it is ! The Hotel Building is an old bank and offices, the rooms are huge , the bathroom gigantic , timber floorboards and tastefully furnished. The breakfast and the B/F room are memorable , you would be hard put to fault the place .It has a perfect location and everything is in walking distance, Bars , Restaurants , Ten Pin Bowling , etc , etc !! Just watch the blinds in the morning as they are workers in the building opposite who nearly copped an eye full !! I can easily say this place deserves more stars !! Also great value for Downtown at $109 (parking extra)

Was here for for 3 nights towards the end of December.
The hotel was perfectly located downtown and near all the sports stadiums. The receptionists were all friendly.
The room was a bit bland but plenty big enough. There was WiFi in the room which was good.
The bed wasnt overly comfortablew but it did the job for 3nights.
I had free breakfast for my 2nights, which included bagels, bacon, sausage, egg pancakes, coffee, yogurts etc. I only had it 1 day but again it was adequate.
Would definitely stop here again if i return to Cleveland.

This past fall (October 2012) I traveled to Cleveland for a conference. My conference hotel was booked, so I booked here, in order to find something with in walking distance. I was pleasantly surprised that my room was not only 2x bigger than the conference room hotels, but I had free internet, free breakfast, and better service. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone traveling.

My room was beautiful and comfortable.

My only negative feedback, is that I was told there were computers with a printer, so I could print out various power points for my conference, and every time I went down there, employees were on the computers, or the computers were not working. The last morning, I ended up sharing this with the front desk, and they allowed me to use their computer to print my necessary documents. I was very impressed with the front desk customer service.

I loved that this hotel was in the middle of the city, I was with in close walking distance of many restaurants and entertainment.

Holiday inn express downtown is within waking distance to the Q Arena and Progressive field. The staff are super friendly and very sharply dressed. We stayed in a king jacuzzi room. Nice hardwood floors and a super big jacuzzi with room for two ;). Bed was a little saggy in the middle which made it a little
Uncomfortable in the morning. Across the street from some great 4th street restaurants. Can't go wrong here.

Hotel is located in a nice area downtown. It is within walking distance for ballgames and casino. There are several restaurants very close to the hotel. The House of Blues is right across the street. The rooms are not small but not huge either. Very clean with nice hardwoods. Our room had a mini fridge and coffee maker. Check in was easy and quick. The only strange thing was self parking in the garage was like $2 more thru the hotel then if you just did park and pay. Not sure why they charge an extra $2 to validate but no other issues at all. I would recommend this hotel for couples and small families and will stay here if visiting the area again.

-Stayed here on a Saturday night this past month. The hotel was fine, but nothing to write home about. It was very quiet, and actually seemed pretty dead. The front desk was courteous, and the room was cleaned to satisfaction.

The elevators were kind of creepy and very small. It was a squeeze to get 4 people in them. Also, the only thing that kind of worried me was that it seemed to have no security whatsoever. Anyone could just walk in off Euclid Avenue, and head up the elevators to the guest rooms without even walking past or near the front desk. This is kinda worrisome, but we experienced no problems. It would be nice if the elevators required you to have an active room key. The price is also a little steep. I believe the beautiful Marriott downtown was $140 a night, and this place was $130.00. Seemed pretty steep.

Other than that, it is a fine place to stay while downtown
