On arrival to the hotel the check in was quick and staff was nice...and then we walked into the room. At first glance the room looked alright but the bathroom smelled like urine I did not see urine but the smell was bad. The bed was clean but when I moved the table to plug in my phone there were...

This is a nice hotel although the room amenities DIDN'T include a fridge which was disappointing for a Holiday Inn. The Wifi was a pain to connect with and keep logging off although they did have two business centers with computers and printers. When I showed my IHG rewards card I received a breakfast buffet coupon for "one" for each...

We stayed for 2 nights on our vacation to the area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. We did have breakfast in the hotel one morning and the buffet offered up a good variety of choices. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

The hotel is fine - adequate for probably every purpose you can imagine (except staying fit...). The buffets are fine - adequate. The pool is fantastic, however, as is Tracy, who always seems to be my housekeeper when I stay there (she is a treasure!). The maintenance guys who got on the roof to fix our air conditioning - in...

I had to stay an extra night in Cleveland on a work trip. Not thinking much of where I would be staying I choose this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised.

Holiday Inns/Expresses have been upgrading of late to justify their $120'ish rates. So i am happy to report that a HI/HIE can be a LUXURIOUS hotel! It was plush. The room was modern and very quiet. We were afraid with the weddings and graduation parties that it would be a zoo, but it was NOT. The food on the breakfast...

First visit to this big HI. Massive rooms and very nice too. Big buzzing Lobby area with a good atmosphere to it. The bar is huge with a dance floor, resident DJ and house band. Good vibe to it in the evenings. My colleague had stayed before so suggested the bar food. The place was very busy and short staffed...

Our usual hotel was booked due to the NBA play-offs. We chose this property because it was easy access to The Cleveland Clinic. The front desk staff was very welcoming, and the process was speedy.
