4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

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.

The Residence Inn in Clevland OH was a nice stay. When you enter the hotel, you are greeted by a security guard and the front desk. The staff are very nice and patient. The room was spectacular. We had a king size bed and a pullout couch. Two TV's, a kitchenette, and a very nice bathroom with a nice shower. It is about a 1 minute walk to The Cavaliers arena and a 5 minute walk to progressive field. There is a parking garage down the street from it. They also offer a complimentary breakfast buffet. There is a billiards room and two computers with printers. I will definetly stay there again if I'm in cleveland.

This hotel is on the older side, but the location is excellent. You are in walking distance of some fantastic food, outdoor cafes, sporting events, a nice mall, and Casino.
The parking is a little weird, and our room was in a tower that used separate elevators, but it wasn't too bad.
Large space, laundry services, breakfast was good.
The location makes it ideal.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend in December. Knowing nothing about Cleveland, I was incredibly happy with the location of this hotel. It's right around the corner from East 4th Street, a walking mall with some of the best restaurants in the city. It was also a 15 minute walk from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly. The price of our room was definitely reasonable for the convenience. They also have underground parking for their guests with access right into the hotel, just costs a little extra.

This hotel's location was great, but that's about all. We pulled up to park and check in and the desk clerk was outside putting a "full" sign in front of the lot. When I inquired where we should park, she said they had an overflow lot we could use if I would check in first. I went inside to check in and she immediately changed and said we could park IN the main lot (apparently, if you make your reservation through expedia, they don't let you, but since mine was through marriott, they would. Odd)
We were directed to park and go to our room. First, we had to take one elevator to the second floor. Walk the length of the hotel and take another elevator to the 5th floor. She told me they upgraded me to a better room. Not sure what the ordinary room would have been like, but this was just ok.
Two king sized beds. Not necessary for just me and my husband. And the one we slept in wasn't comfortable and sagged in the middle. The room was gigantic but felt empty. Two small pictures on the walls. Old furniture. No plugs near the bed for phones. We felt like we were sleeping in a cavernous empty room. It was on the 5th floor, but all the noise from the street came through the walls and closed windows. Floor was uneven and creaky everywhere.
Glad we were only there for a overnight and glad I didn't pay too much for this room.
Had theater tickets that night and planned to walk but the desk clerk told us it was a 20 minute walk and not the best neighborhood to walk in, so we had friends pick us up and drive us. They told us it was a fine neighborhood to walk in and google maps said it was less than a 10 minute walk. Not sure who was right.
Breakfast was ordinary food, but too crowded. No room for us to sit down and eat.
With so many other hotels in the area, I would choose somewhere else.

I was here for a recent business trip - as with most RI's it's a wonderful hotel for the business traveler with plenty of room and good WiFi. There is a nice lounge/game room in the lobby as well, and as others note, it's right in the heart of the dining/nightlife/sports district of Cleveland. I'd definitely stay here again. About the only complaint is that they have a very limited delivery menu, only 3 local restaurants. But there are lots of places within walking distance. The underground parking garage is a tight fit as well, leave your suburban home.

This Hotel is clean and in a wonderful
Location. We walked to the Browns Stadium, Indians Game, RRHOF and the theatre district.
The staff was so helpful and nice.
We had booked a studio and I called for a bigger room - I was told they were over booked however upon check in they had upgraded us to a 2 BR suite.
We will stay here again!
