Like most standard-issue business travelers, I typically stay at corporate hotel chains to accumulate points so I can enjoy a free vacation once per year. Recently, I was assigned to a 9-month project in Cleveland and was staying at the Marriott at the Key Center – a relatively nice hotel – but encountered a week when all the hotels were... More

We stayed in the Roost for one night for my first night away from our daughter and we couldn't have picked a better place. A great spot in Ohio City that is walking distance to anything you could want or need, but really, we could have spent the entire time in the room and had a blast. It's very well... More

The J.Palen House truly epitomizes country charm in an urban setting. We had the luxury of staying in multiple rooms, and each had its own distinct charm and comfortable accommodations with every detail covered. Diane was the perfect host, most helpful without being overbearing and providing us with insight and ideas to expand upon our own itinerary.The convenience of the... More

We typically visit Cleveland once or twice a year for a concert, so most of our time in the city has been spent around University Circle. However, for our anniversary we wanted to try something a little different. After calling two other area B&B's (and not getting a "welcoming" sort of feeling from either one) I called The J. Palen...

My wife and I stayed in the "Webster Room" with king size bed and jacuzzi after dropping our son off at a local college. We loved how relaxed we felt immediately upon going though the front door and the feeling of relaxation grew the longer we stayed. Diane is the most fun host and really made our stay special. The...

We had a wonderful overnight stay. The service is beyond excellent, led by a most kind and welcoming host. The inn is very comfortable and home-like, set in a growing neighborhood experiencing a development resurgence.

Located in historic Ohio City...we walked to many good restaurants and attractions. Short drive to beach, zoo, museums, theater, major league sports. We stayed in The Palen Room in the Lofts...on a quite street, around the corner from the main house. Properties are meticulously maintained. Attention to details. Outdoor private garden...with comfortable seating. Our room had a comfortable king. High... More

We ended up at J Palen on a quick weekend getaway trip to Cleveland after finding it on TripAdvisor, and were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves not only at a great bed & breakfast getaway in the city, but we can't say enough good things about the Old City neighborhood we stumbled upon (thanks to the information binder in the...
