I have stayed here on multiple trips to Cleveland and have some basic considerations to share:
1. the rooms are all double queen beds. Not much else. The beds are comfy but the rooms are not large, if you plan to entertain in your room, be prepared.
2. the onsite bar and restaurant are adequate. Don't expect 5 star dining. The Starbucks in the lobby is a nice alternative for something fast and simple.
3. The location is great, but you are a few blocks and a 10-15 walk to downtown and the Warehouse district. Wear the right shoes (am I right, ladies?).
4. Parking is next to the hotel in an open air parkade that is accessible by a slow elevator from the lobby. Allow for some time to get in and out with the car.
5. The pool and "gym" are small but functional. Remember this hotel is popular with families, so it will be busy. The gym is very basic, but has treadmills and basic weights to work out.
6. This property is being renovated, so be prepared. The elevators are slow -- even the staff have to wait long times to use them. If the staff is cranky, it's probably because their day is suffering too. A smile goes a long way around this property.
7. The rooms are comfortable, but this is not 5 Star Doubletree quality that I usually find in my travels. If you ask the front desk to move you to another room in better condition, they will understand and try to accomodate you.
While not my first choice in Cleveland for hotels, I would stay here again. This is one of those reliable places in the midwest -- you know exactly what you are getting when you check in. Happy travels.
