“great location for downtown activity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

clean and modern hotel located within walking distance of lots of downtown bars and restaurants. Safe and secure parking and easy to find location. We enjoyed our stay here. Downtown was way cleaner and safer than I had previously thought

We came in for a reunion and decided to attend the Indians-Yankees game. Literally check in and parked the car. No need to drive anywhere. Perfect place to stay- hotel staff over the top friendly. Room was ready and clean. Harvey's Bar that is off the elevators was the perfect place for a night cap to end a perfect day. Will no doubt stay here again.

We went to the Yankees-Indians game on Tuesday July 8th. The hotel is right across the street from Progressive Field. Booking early has it's benefits. I got 2 rooms for $169 each. Also got comp breakfast ticket. We requested a view of the stadium and we got it.

It was a dark yet clear night. We pulled in at 9pm tired and hungry after a long drive. I asked at the front desk if a room was available. No, they said, and Justin, the PM supervisor, gave me a list of nearby hotels that may have a vacancy. Kiona handed me a phone and I started dialing. Tonya (also behind the desk) knew of other hotels with no vacancy so I skipped calling those. The first one I called said they had a double room for $189 (didn't have one at the AARP rate).Then I talked to a nice lady at a Hampton Inn about 5 blocks away. She did have a room for $179/night. But there would be a $20 parking fee. I said OK. We'll be right there. In the meantime, Mr. Greg Koloze, Front Office Manager, suggested that the beautiful LaTonya call a patron to ask if he would be honoring his reservation that night. He said no. She said, "OK and we will not charge you the penalty this time." So we got his room (for the price quoted by Hampton Inn) on the 8th floor where we could see fireworks each time the Indians scored a homerun. The room was clean and well-equipped (Keurig coffee maker).

The Indians and Yankees were playing across the street. The hotel lobby was empty except for the extraordinary staff. The restaurant closed at 10 pm but we were greeted warmly when we showed up at 9:30. Terrance, our waiter, was so helpful with suggestions including being willing to customize an order to fit my preference. I had a cup of delicious cream of green bean soup, a custom-made Cobb salad, and my husband had a burger and fries. All were fresh and just right for the time and setting.

We were also able to leave our car in their parking lot the next day and take their free shuttle to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Our driver was friendly and knowledgeable.

I may never get to Cleveland again but I will always remember the friendly, kind, helpful and delightful front desk and restaurant staff that made our stay so comfortable.

I grew up in Cleveland and usually stay at a hotel in the western suburbs, and this is the first time I've stayed at a hotel downtown. We were going to an Indians game, so we wanted a hotel close to Progressive Field. The Hilton Garden Inn is across the street from the ballpark; you can't get any closer.

The hotel itself is great. Our room was huge - be sure to ask for a room that ends with "00" (we were in room 600) and you'll be on the corner with two windows. We peaked into other rooms that were being clean and could see that our room was much bigger. The bathroom is a little small, but that's no big deal for us.

There is a breakfast buffet that includes all the usual suspects: cold and hot cereal, pastries, made-to-order eggs, etc. It was adequate. We saw a lot of people asking for take-out containers and they piled them with food from the buffet. None of the staff said anything and I was surprised.

Our shuttle driver, Jan, was very nice. She drove us to and from the Horsehoe Casino. On the way back, she drove us by the Ritz-Carlton to boo the Yankees fans who were waiting for the players to come out.

We had an "incident" with one of the parking attendants our first night. Todd, the night manager, and the front desk staff were very apologetic for what happened and comped our parking AND gave us a voucher for the breakfast buffet. That was more than what we expected and made us want to stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms that end with a "00" (400, 500, 600, etc) are on the corner with windows at each cor...

Our family was in town for the baseball game and you can't get any closer to the stadium than this. But what really made this hotel great beyond it's location was the staff. Only disappointment was the swimming pool area - really needs a wading pool for the little kids so the adults can actually use the hot tub, change room would be nice too. Special thanks and commendations to Greg! His winning personality and helpful tips truly made our stay here outstanding.

First the overall…Hotel lobby was clean and neat as well as the room itself. Fresh and clean and check in was a breeze even though they were very busy. The staff at the desk was top notch and very friendly. Latonya was a pleasure to deal with and was very friendly. The hotel itself is located directly across the street from Cleveland Indians stadium so you can walk there, as well as walking distance to Cavs arena and the Horseshoe casino. The hotel does offer a free shuttle to these locations if you choose.

Now for the room. We stayed in 1013 and it was directly across from the elevator as we requested. The room was quiet and you could not hear anyone in the elevator area. Room itself was clean and neat. Now for the only issue we had….this room is in extreme need of a NEW MATRESS. It is way past time to REPLACE, NOT TURN OVER, REPLACE IT. I was sleeping in a pit like in a hammock. Room charge was as follows rounded to nearest dollar:
$16 to park
$219 for room for 2 adults for 1 night
$18 state tax
$10 county tax
$7 city tax
$2 county excise tax

At $219 for a night to sleep at a Hilton property, I would expect a mattress as good or better than at home. Again this was the only flaw I found in the room.

We certainly appreciate the review and the shout out to La Tonya. She is one of many super stars on our team. But our apologizes about the bed. I have let our engineering department know. Thank you again.
