I'll be attending a convention at the Cleveland Convention Center for a week in July 2014. The association putting on the convention listed 2 hotels on its site (both downtown) - the Marriott & the Renaissance. Unfortunately, they are both way out of my price range ($245 per night). The association may eventually negotiate a group discount with these hotels but apparently hasn't yet. I don't mind staying outside of downtown in a suburb or whatever - if the downtown is accessible by RTA . I'm retired from the military so I am fortunate to get a discount at a number of hotel chains. However, neither the Marriott or Renaissance offers a military discount. If anyone who is familiar with the Cleveland area has any suggestions, I would be grateful. Thanks.
