I rolled the dice at a name-your-own-price site for a nice hotel near Akron, Ohio -- and this hotel came up. I had never been to the town before, so I did not know what to expect.
I am pleased to say I was very happy with my stay. The lobby was beautiful. In one hallway, there is a very interesting display of President McKinley photos and info, which was interesting. Because they took their time to decorate their hotel in something other than corporate-boring-blah, my stay is memorable.
A nice treat: in the basement is a collection of antique/collectible cars. There is no fee to go look or take pics. The cars are for sale, too.
The halls and and room were very good. Bed was very comfortable. Loved the extra pillows.
It offered an in-hotel restaurant which offered optional room service. I didn't try the food, but the menu looked good and in walking through the lobby, it smelled good.
The pool was nice and the important thing to me was that it looked clean. I like how there is a changing room with shower next to the pool so guests are not forced to walk through the hotel in damp clothes.
I depend on my computer when I travel. The wireless internet worked without any problems, and the speed was good.
I had to think hard about a drawback. The only thing I could come up with is that they charge $8 for a parking voucher (or you can pay $6.75 direct to the parking garage). For this price range of room, they really should include parking. It is nice, however, that the garage is right across the street and connected to the hotel's 2nd floor with an enclosed walkway.
The area around the hotel seemed safe, but to be honest we did not have time to explore. All guests we encountered were polite. Staff was polite. I felt comfortable staying here and I would go back.
