Inside, paintings, prints and photographs showcase Cleveland’s architecture and sports love. Even the exercise room has a floor to ceiling photograph of one of Cleveland’s famous bridges.

Because we were on the go for most of our Cleveland stay, we didn’t take in the exercise room, pool or restaurants, but we did head to Noshery. Noshery is a grab and go place off the lobby. There is a bounty of breakfast sandwiches, salads, snacks, and more as self-serve options. You can even pick up a toothbrush and other toiletries you may have left at home. For a caffeine fix, pick up a Starbucks coffee.

Our Room

Our two-queen bed guest room was grounded in Cleveland as the rest of the hotel. For example, a photograph of one of the Guardians of Traffic of the Hope Memorial Bridge was above the headboard. These are the iconic symbols of Cleveland’s now named Guardians baseball team, a perfect interior design. Other rooms have other Cleveland themed photos.

The room’s palate of cream, beige and darker browns create a restful palate of good taste. The 55-inch TV, coffee maker, iron, ironing board and plenty of outlets are what one needs for getaway. And the beds could not have been more comfortable thanks to the down comforters and Super Topper mattress pads. A desk, desk chair, dresser and armchair rounded out the sleek modern furniture look.

About the view. We could see the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and First Energy Stadium where the Cleveland Browns play with Lake Erie as a backdrop from our window.

Other Room Options and Rates

In addition to two queen beds, room options include one king bed to several suites, some with special amenities like a yoga mat and other paraphernalia or cardio equipment in an elliptical machine. 

Our room was a wedding group rate. There are special rates from military to AAA discounts on the website. You can also book a breakfast included package. Regular rates are from $215 to $416. Check out Priceline or Hotels.com for a cheaper rate, but the Hilton’s discount options may be better.
