Just returned from our 9/26/09 1 night stay at the Akron Hilton. This review is mainly for those running in the Akron Marathon (next year of course). This hotel is very nice, king room was a little small compared to other hotels I've stayed at. Had to move furniture in order to fit in a roll-away bed. We stayed here Friday because our daughter was running in the Akron Marathon Saturday morning. All the downtown hotels were filled. Although it would have been perfect to stay in a downtown hotel, staying at this hotel which was on the outskirts of Akron was just fine. No traffic problems in the morning..just on the way back because the Marathon was still going on and there were a lot of road closings. So, if you're not in a hurry to get back to this hotel then just enjoy watching the runners and cheering them on.
The hotel was upscale and not outrageously priced. It DOES not have ANY complimentary breakfast. But if you turn left out of the driveway there are a LOT of shopping and places to eat.
Also this hotel is right across the street from Summit Mall.
This hotel provided a shuttle to downtown Akron for the marathon but we opted to drive ourselves which was not a problem at all. We wanted access to our own car so that we could all drive back together after the race. The shuttle ONLY took runners and not parents or guests.
All in all it was a nice stay and good for marathon runners who can't get into any of the downtown hotels.
