“Gorgeous hotel, not very close to downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2010

Very nice, upscale hotel located near the Cleveland Clinic. They gave us complimentary chocolates upon checking in. The room was gorgeous as well and was very comfortable and quiet. The bathroom had both a stand up shower as well as a soaking tub. The staff was friendly and informative when we asked for local dining recommendations. The internet service was provided by AT&T, so there is a charge unless you happen to have an account with AT&T (we did, so we did not have to pay).

Very expensive as compared to other 4 star hotels in Cleveland. I reviewed this hotel while my family member was at the cleveland clinc (I also reviewed the Intercontinental suites and guest houses). If you NEED to be right by the Cleveland Clinic, this is the right place for you. You PAY for LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION...... The rates are VERY high as compared to other 4 star hotels located in Cleveland Union Square about 6 miles away. I was able to get a 4 star for $75 (including tax and breakfast) Feb 2010 in Union Square via Priceline. The Intercontinental was $259 plus tax plus $24/day parking (over $300). There is also many medical conferences at the IC Cleveland Clinic so, you are surrounded by medical jargin and a hotel that feels sort of cold and grey. Nevertheless, if you need to be at the Cleveland Clinic on site, and do not want to drive to and from the hotel to the clinic every day, and have the money, it is the place to stay. If you are in town for any other reason, I would stay downtown union square at one of the 4 star hotels (or even some of the lower star but nice hotels like the Comfort Inn). You will be in a nicer environment, be able to get away from medical environment, and save a TON of money.

I would recommend for location location location again. Not for any other reason. This hotel must be raking in the dough, as they are always booked solid, and charge rack rate, and are able to get it, and not because of any other reason than its proximity to the Cleveland Clinic.

Great facility with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Only downside is having to pay for Internet access in rooms which was annoying.
otherwise no complaints.

I walk with a cane and walker sometimes. I received unsolicited help and courtesies well beyond the call of duty. The bellmen, valet people were exceptional in their kindness. It was a wonderful experience being received so well by a superb staff.
Given the limitations of the area around a hospital with no easy access to restaurants, the restaurants here were extraordinarily overpriced and the main room should be more general menu then ethnic.

Location = 25 minutes from airport. (~$33-35). Physical location by the Cleveland Clinic, but in middle of nothing walkable. Car is a must.
Valet & Check in = Nothing negative to say at all.
Rooms = plenty of space, clean, VERY nice bathrooms.
Value = weak. Expensive rates, expensive restaurant and room service. Wi-fi pricy, nothing free in lobby but do have 2 complimentary computers with printers. Get the company to pay for it.

I've been to this hotel several times for different conferences and love it every single time! The hotel location is great within the Cleveland Clinic and a short drive from downtown Cleveland and nice restaurants at little Italy and Cleveland heights. The hotel is very grand with granite everywhere and very well appointed, clean and spacious rooms. Only downside is that parking is valet only and the pillows are extremely soft to the point where you wake up with neck pain every morning. On the positive side, the separate shower and tub in the bathroom is great! The best part though is the main conference room. It is just the best for either a review course or CME meeting. It can get pretty "rough" in some areas not far from the hotel, so if you are not familiar with Cleveland, always check with concierge or take a taxi to where you are going before wandering around on your own. I've seen significant improvements around the city over the past few years and Cleveland does have many nice places and a recent modern and progressive vibe to it, especially the University circle area. If you are on a budget just try eating at the hospital cafeteria which is just a short walk across the skyway on the 3rd floor and opens until around 11:00 PM.

7 of us traveled to Cleveland to stay at the InterContinental Suites for July 17th weekend to party (Girls Weekend). We are a group of 40+ women so we aren't the hall running type of partiers. We booked three suites, which included microwaves, fridges, sofa bed, etc., and had booked three months in advance. When we arrived at the Suites, we were told that we had been upgraded to the IC Hotel and Conference Center a few blocks down. It was supposedly a higher class hotel. We went to check in and were informed that there were no sofa beds, microwaves, or fridges in the rooms. Further, these were not suites but regular hotel rooms. They were able to put on all on the same floor, one room across from the other and the third down the hall. They also gave us two fridges that worked and one microwave (third fridge out of order). Because we came and went so often, there was a lot of door closing, which was loud because doors slam on their own. Second day there, we received a call from front desk saying that neighbor complained of door slaming and hall noises. Come to find out, they had put our group, along with a bachelor party, right next to an elderly medical patient receiving treatment!

Hotel nice, but restaurant just okay. Guest services doesn't think before they place you. We plan to stay at the Suites again, if we go back to Cleveland. Hopefully they won't give away our rooms again.
