“Very nice historic hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Very nice historic hotel in an out of the way location. The old building is beautiful and the modern decor is an interesting departure from the mundane. Smallish room was beautiful, comfortable and nicely appointed. The staff was nice and accommodating but not solicitous. This was our first time in Cleveland, so at first the location seemed to be very isolated and removed from downtown, but we soon learned that it is very easy to get downtown and very close to Little Italy and Cleveland Heights, both fantastic neighborhoods. Lawrence recommended a great restaurant in Little Italy for dinner and printed out clear directions for us.

The only issue I had was with the entrance to the hotel. There are a lot of steps to get into the lobby area and the nondescript doors inside the main entrance were not very welcoming and were confusing ("is this the entrance? Where is the front desk?")

The Tudor Arms is a fine, albeit slightly odd, property. The updated rooms are clean and modern and the staff is polite enough. The big problem, however, is its isolated location. There's nothing nearby so if you don't have a car, there's no reason to stay here, since parts of the area around the hotel are dicey and you shouldn't be walking around there at any hour of the day.

We had some tasty middle eastern food from the hotel restaurant but its hours are limited (it closes by 11pm) so think hard before you stay here without a car. There is a free shuttle but it's not always ready to go when you are and its hours are limited.

Limited: that's a good word to describe this place.

My husband and I had to make a quick trip to the Cleveland Clinic for a family member. We had the king sized room and the size of the room was more than adequate. The furnishings were sparse in the modern minimalistic decor, but adequate. The hardwood floors were nice. The bathroom was smaller than past Doubletrees I have stayed at.

The service at the front desk was impressive. My husband and I planned to go to The Towers and decided to try out the Metro system. Mickey, I think is her name, printed out the schedules and her colleague gave us tips on how to get to various areas. That was very unexpected. In addition, when we were making arrangements for a taxi to take us to the airport from the hotel, one of the members mentioned that he always takes the metro to the airport. It was an easy call,,... $40.00 vs $5.00 and a straight shot to the airport. Their shuttle took us to the station, and off we went.

The station is about a ten minute walk or a three minute drive down the road.

Their shuttle will take you to and from the Cleveland Clinic and surrounding area within two miles.

NOTE: you have to take a taxi or limo to the hotel. if you take the taxi from the airport... after picking up your luggage at baggage claim, keep walking past the carousels following the signs to the TAXI. At the end of the building you will see a sign that says, See Taxi attendant. Go to the window, tell them the hotel you want to go to.
They will assign a cab and give you two receipts. One for the cab driver and one for you. On the receipt it states how much to pay the taxi driver, it does NOT include the tip. I always hesitate taking taxis in cities I don't know because of the ability to "drive around" and increase the charges. This system does not allow that. It cost $36.00 for the taxi.

Room Tip: Have Hilton Honors membership... you get better rooms. I keep this membership to get the better room...

We decided to stay at this Hotel due to the location being next to The Cleveland Clinic and my daughter was there for tests and treatment. Upon arrival we were greeted by Mitchell who was very polite and had such a pleasant smile and he was able to take care of my car, I HIGHLY recommend using the Valet it made things so much easier and they took excellent care of my car and was only 3 extra dollars a day (self parking is 16.00 a night valet 19.00).James the Bell Hop took care of our bags. They booked us the wrong room at first but James was able to actually get us the correct room and at a cheaper rate. Once James unloaded my luggage he went and got me a menu for room service and then showed me the shuttle scheduled and how to use it, he explained to me how to work the temperature control since it was freezing and he asked if I needed anything else.

The room was absolutely gorgeous, well w/ the exception of the strange art work but it wasn't too bad and all but one painting actually grew on me by the end of my stay. The bathroom had two sinks and a nice tub w/ removable shower head and robes and slippers waiting. The view was amazing, we had tons of windows and it really makes the room "pop". We had a suite so we had two TV's and for the most part the channels are basic, however I don't really watch TV so not a big deal. At times the noise from other guests woke me up but that isn't the Hotels fault, one note there are lots of sirens from ambulances because there is a ER near by but I got used to it rather quick. But my guests found them far more annoying. The rooms were cold but they have wonderful down comforters that are toasty warm.

Next we decided to go to the restaurant and it was small but quaint and there was a singer and a keyboard player playing soft music, I found it to be very loud and found conversation difficult because of the level but enjoyed it none-the-less. The food was really good, I ordered the Tilapia blackened w/ a wonderful creamy dill sauce,couscous and a salad. My guest had the same and we thoroughly enjoyed it, the fish was cooked perfectly and was so melt in your mouth delicious. However we found the dinner service to be very inconsistent the rest of our stay, one day it would be wonderful, the next not so great. Our last night there my guest ordered the Tilapia again this time the fish was over cooked (badly) crunchy and burnt and no dill sauce (we had to ask for it), my chicken was over cooked to the point of being rubbery and all our sides were wrong and it took forever to get the right food. For the price I was rather disappointed in the quality and next time will probably look for other dinning options. Breakfast was wonderful and room service was quick and most friendly. I had one major complaint, our breakfast came w/ a basket of pastries and we pulled those off our tray to save for later but Housekeeping removed them and we never got them so having paid for them I was not very happy and the complaint seemed to be ignored.

The Shuttle to and from The Cleveland Clinic was superb and the drivers very friendly and so helpful getting my daughter in and out of the Shuttle and in and out of her wheelchair. It is the main reason we chose to stay there and I am so glad we did because the shuttle got us everywhere we needed w/ no problems whatsoever. And when we would get back to the Hotel James would be there w/ a wheelchair waiting to assist my daughter and to wheel her up to the room. That was very impressive.

Checkout was fairly easy w/ the exception of a few mistakes on the bill but they were very quick to correct it and my car was pulled to the front and they helped me repack it and all in all I would definitely stay there again as would I recommend it to anyone. Maybe not the restaurant for dinner but for breakfast definitely! And James or The fabulous James as we now call him, he is worth his weight in gold and made our stay absolutely the best make sure to TIP him good!!!

Room Tip: Get a corner room with windows, the view is simply breath taking!

There are lots of quirky things about this hotel--sliding doors that come off their tracks, no carpet on floors, lead the list, but the location is great as is the staff. Overall, the room was fine, but the hotel does need renovating.

Room Tip: Higher is better--we heard lots of traffic all night.

My family and I (Two teenage daughters, my husband and myself) Stayed in this hotel while I was scheduled to have surgery at Cleveland Clinic Foundation (CCF). We live a couple hours away from Cleveland and we heard this hotel offers a discount to CCF patients ($99/night). We stayed for 2 nights. The room was more than accomodating. Very large with actual queen size beds that are very comfortable and plenty of pillows. Lots of natural lighting. This hotel has a ton of charm. The rooms are contemporary, but there is also a ballroom and pictures just dont do this place justice. People were friendly and accomodating. The only reason I did not give an excellent rating was I did not try the restaurant, and from the room service menu I feel it isnt for everyone. I would have loved to try it, but I dont feel there was anything there for my husbands liking. (Picky eater) I would stay there again with NO hesitation, and would pay the regular rate without a discount.

Room Tip: Our shower had low water pressure, so maybe a lower level room would be better. They do have massage...

I was staying here with the family while undergoing a medical procedure. This facility was a very great experience. The staff was friendly, they are trying hard to meet your needs and requirements. The building is loaded with history. The ball rooms are impressive to see. It would be awesome to plan for an event there.
Rooms: Nice, clean and wood floors - no carpet that can stain or dust. So this is just a great place for a post-surgery stay as well. Beds are great and rooms spacious. The a/c is a bit challenging to adjust...
Breakfast is outstanding - nice buffet with cooked to order eggs, friendly service.
The restaurant "The Canopy" was a very positive experience. Responsive chef, outstanding food, and great wine list.
This is my new standard and favorite in Cleveland.
Special thanks for Sam (assistant manager) and Lawrence (front desk)... You guys are doing great.

Room Tip: Especially during events the freight elevator can be noisy at night. Check with the staff .. worst c...
