“A perfect stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

This hotel is right in the heart of Cleveland, within walking distance of the water, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Progressive Field and the Warehouse district. We parked our car (Valet for $20) and didn't use it the entire time. We were only in the city for two days, but the Marriott was in the perfect spot, and truly the nicest hotel in the city. As an aside, the Cincinnati Reds team were staying there also, and staff were very professional with giving them their privacy. The room was spacious, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. There was a restaurant within that offered breakfast, but we didn't eat there only because of time. This was a superb place where every staff member was friendly, helpful and a real treat. Highly recommended.

Just spent 9 nights at the Marriott Key Center. After a long day of traveling, the valet (only $5 more) was a wonderful welcome as well as the front desk. From the lobby to the room, the property was much nicer than I had thought from the pics on TripAdvisor. Bed was comfy, view was awesome and staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend visiting and staying for a pleasant trip.

My husband and I arrived in Cleveland on our 43rd wedding anniversary. We were in Cleveland to go to the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame. We were upgraded to a lake view room which was absolutely breathtaking. Every person that we encountered was unbelievably friendly and kind. We took a lake cruise and when we got back into our hotel the staff had sent us chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of champagne! I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody.

If you want to be close to all the action and get a good night sleep, this is the hotel to stay in! We stayed in room 1609 which is a corner room with a beautiful view of the city. Very comfortable king bed and pillows. Room was very clean. The front desk staff were very friendly and go out of their way to help you. We were there to see the Kate Perry Concert and they mapped out for us how to walk there. They also had suggestions for placed to have dinner and their recommendation for the Chop House was excellence.

We were central to everything. We took in an Indians' baseball game our second night and it was only a 10 minute walk to the hotel. The hotel is close to the lake, rock and roll hall of fame and the Science Centre, etc.

The only downfall to this hotel is the pool is very small and is only 3 feed deep. Really needs an upgrade for guest to enjoy.

We loved Cleveland and this hotel and will stay here again or sure. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: As for a corner room. Worth the upgrade

We just returned from Cleveland after spending eight nights at this property, as they were a host hotel for Gay Games nine. In eight nights, you pretty much get to see it all and can really judge a hotel's karma. I thought they did a super job and we never came into contact with a disgruntled employee or one with an attitude. The contrary was true, in that they made our stay extra special and went out of their way to please us. The staff really cares and you can tell. Kudos to Gabi and all the crew who were a cut above and treated us royally.
The hotel is well located, close to so many things to see and do and has lovely rooms.
A winner for sure.

Checked in late afternoon and we were given upgrade to a lovely suite. Great room, great view...or so we thought.
EARLY the next morning (6:30 am) we started to hear chairs scraping on the floor directly above us and it lasted until 9:30 am. Turns out, we were directly below the concierge lounge and as soon as breakfast began, we could hear the people moving above us. Wouldn't have been a problem if we were there for business and up early, but this was a pleasure trip so it didn't turn out that the upgrade was a good idea. Not sure anyone would like to stay in this particular suite. (room 1921)
The only other problem we had was that when we returned to our room a little after midnight, our keys didn't work. Made a trip down to the front desk only to find no one working there. Saw lots of other employees, but none behind the front desk. One even stopped and went behind the desk, calling out "Hello???" and no one came. I had to use the phone to call "at your service" to get someone to come and when she did, I didn't even get an apology. I don't think it was too much to ask that someone be working at the front desk of this hotel, even at midnight.
The hotel itself was in a great location and up to date. And the man in charge of the concierge lounge was exceptionally nice and friendly. That being said, these other issues clouded our stay.

Room Tip: Don't choose suite 1921. It's directly under the concierge lounge and you hear every movemen...

In service and hospitality, the gold medal goes to the housekeeping staff for ensuring my room was clean and comfortable my entire trip.

In the culinary category, tied in first place is Duke's and David's, both serving up excellent food and service.

And in the "Extra Mile" category, the gold medal and MVP award goes to Cecilly at the front desk who, when recognizing that I missed the laundry drop off for shirts I needed to man out company booth at the festival, took it on herself to take my shirts, launder them in the hotel, and have them folded and on my bed by the time I got back that evening. Truly outstanding. Check out the note she left me as well. Cleveland rocks and so did the Marriott. Thank you.
