I'm planning a trip to Cleveland for the first time over Labor Day weekend. I need to be staying in the downtown area, preferably centrally located to the major attractions (will be attending a football game on Saturday at the stadium, but want to do other stuff while there as well)
Because I am taking this trip on the cheap, I have been considering booking a hotel through Hotwire, which seems to have very favorable rates available. I have been trying my best to guess which hotels might actually be featured by Hotwire (since of course you don't know which hotel you get until you book it). There is a "3 star" room available for 48 bucks per night, and a "three and a half" star room available for 58 bucks per night.
Using my best powers of deduction based on which chains tend to use Hotwire to book excess rooms, I feel that the three star hotel is likely the Hampton Inn, while the 3.5 star is probably the Hyatt Arcade hotel. Does anyone have any insight or experience as to whether this is the case. It seems also from the other hotel thread that either one of these hotels would be a fine choice for the price, but if anyone has any comment, please fire away. Thanks.
