A classic hotel with some nice features

This is one of the classic old hotels. Don't look for huge rooms, but enjoy the ornate lobby. And... See full review

Great downtown location, nice lobby, but older rooms

Location is great, particularly if you want to visit the nearby Horseshoe Casino. Parking was very tight and overnight in the small garage was over twice the cost of lots across the street. Rooms are older, bathroom is very small and a little tough to navigate based on how doors open.

great for downtown Cleveland

Access is so easy via the Rapid from the airport. Room Service was great - I asked for a special order and they came up with exactly what I wanted at no extra charge, in a short timeframe and it was fresh and just what I was looking for. Service was excellent all round. Charging for in-room internet was a bit cheesy for such a nice (pricy) hotel - that is my only gripe though.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

You don't need a cab or a limo or a car from the airport - just take the Rapid Transit (the "Rapid") red line that leaves CLE and takes you right to Tower City where you can walk through the mall to the hotel without ever needing to go outside. It costs a whopping $2.25 each way.

Nice Hotel

Very nice old hotel that has been updated. Even guest floors have high ceilings and wide hallways. You'll never mistake it for a cookie-cutter modern hotel.

Great staff!

Fantastic staff! Especially Maurice, (Restaurant host), and the Gift shop staff. Since my sister is a patient at The Cleveland Clinic, we have made three trips to Cleveland since November. EVERYWHERE we go people are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. I would love to come tour your fine city as a vacation.

Elegant hotel for receptions

We had a business holiday party to attend and stayed the night. Would plan another reception there if needed.The hotel was elegant, staff pleasant and efficient. Because of the function that night the check in line was exceptionally long but moved along quickly. We stayed in a standard king room but it was much nicer than most standard rooms at other hotels. It had a small desk for a lap top or for dining, a comfortable chair to sit and relax and a King bed with nice linens. The hotel has many luxury suites that we will take advantage of on our next stay. Great hotel and staff!

Great Historic Hotel Stay

Nice place, but the neighborhood at night was less than desirable. The bedding was quite nice. Fast elevators (4 of them). Shopping mall and the subway to the airport (RTS - $1.75 exact change only) was attached to the property by corridor and mall. Skip the Johnny Q steak house visible from the front door and go to the warehouse district.
