The Ritz in Downtown Cleveland is a very nice property that is very close to most of the major attractions in Cleveland. I stayed one night at the Ritz and upon check-in, I was upgraded to a Club Level room free of charge. Upon entering my room, one thought crossed my mind... This room was average in size. I would expect a lot more space in this hotel room. In all honesty, this room was no bigger or no less clean than a room at the Red Roof Inn. I'm not insulting the Ritz in the least, as the room was very clean, but I am saying that for the rate I booked at, I would expect a room double or triple the size it actually was. I see no reason why the Ritz charges as much as they do. I have stayed at various other properties around North America and have found rooms exactly the same size, just as clean, with more benefits (such as a sofa or refridgerator in the room) for much less than what the Ritz charges for a one night stay. Much of what you will pay for one night at the Ritz is based soley on the fancy name of the property. If you plan on using this room only for showering and sleeping, consider a cheaper property in Downtown Cleveland. There are other 3 and 4 star properties nearby that are just as nice and are much less in cost.
If you are still tempted to stay at the Ritz, I would like you to know that the property is in a good location and the staff is very friendly. Valet parking in inclimate weather is a must, as off-site parking is quite a walk. The Ritz has a very nice banquet center. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Consider priceline for a cheaper rate than what the hotel will charge you.
