We stayed two nights at The Residence Inn in downtown Cleveland as a lower priced
alternative to the official wedding hotel of a wedding we were attending. The hotel is the refurbished Colonial hotel which was built in 1898. Upon checking in we were given an upgraded one bedroom suite. Check in was quick and efficient and the staff in all our encounters with them
were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and clean but that being said it still
has the look of a hotel built many years ago. Some people may appreciate the historical look
but since we spent little time in the room it was not a big issue. The room had two flat screen TV's, a full size refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave oven and basic utensils. The hotel advertises is that it will do complimentary grocery shopping for long term quests. Offsetting the
spaciousness of the room is the extremely small bathroom. There is a nice size vanity and sink
outside of the bathroom but an extremely cramped and tight tub and toilet area. I guess it is the
hazard or restoring a building over a century old. The free breakfast area is located on the second floor and is very bright and airy with a view of the adjoining arcade that runs between
Prospect and Euclid Avenues. The breakfast was ample and stayed well stocked throughout
the morning. The main advantage of the hotel is its location. It is a couple of blocks from the Baseball park and basketball arena. It is also less than a block away from the East 4th street
entertainment district which consists of a dozen or more restaurants with both inside and outdoor seating. It is also less than 3 blocks away from the new Horseshoe Casino. The streets were still well populated at midnight and we felt no security qualms about walking back to the hotel late at night. All in all it is the perfect location for a stay in downtown Cleveland
at a much lower price than the other downtown hotels and we definitely would stay there again.
Please be aware that the parking situation can be a little difficult. There is a lot next to the
hotel which provides you with in an out parking privileges. Space is limited in this lot and fills up.
If that is the case they send you to a private lot which is only 4 or 5 buildings away but you do not have in and out privileges. They give you a card which you insert after the card issued
by the parking garage and your fee is covered. They charge $18.00 a day for parking. The weird part was that i was in the private garage both nights,and when I pulled up and paid the fee showed up as $15.00 for Saturday and $10.00 for Sunday but i was charged $18.00 each day by the hotel. Overall a bargain and a good place to stay downtown.
