The staff here is the best! The restaurant is good for a quick snack or a nice dinner, and the food good! Impulse nightclub has great bands and a nice atmosphere since it's recent upgrade, and is usually packed! The rooms are accommodating, wish the beds were a little softer, but still makes for a good night's sleep. I stay...

A lot of local competition to contend with, but guests are passing up a great meal right inside the hotel. I had the Del Monico steak with Demi sauce, hot yet crispy vegetables and baked potato. Underpriced, considering Outback Steakhouse is across the parking lot, but I'll be eating here all week. If you stay, I recommend you give them...

From the arrival to breakfast to check out, the staff was attentive and seem genuine in assuring your stay is a pleasant one. Highly recommend Michaels Grill for breakfast inside the building. Adequately staffed for business travelers. Good buffet and a coffee to go. Highly recommend!

I regularly stay at this hotel for business and I have always felt that it does meet all of my needs and necessities, but it doesn't go above and beyond. The breakfast buffet does offer a lot of hot food, but it hasn't changed in years. The bar/nightclub was upgraded about a year ago and is the best part of...

We chose to stay here the night before a Browns football game. The place was packed. 2 weddings, a high school reunion and maybe another event all going on at the same time.

Business trip to area required an overnight stay. Hotel is conveniently located to Cleveland, and a bit more economical. Lobby is clean and staff are polite and accommodating.
