This University Circle hotel provides a handy base for the Cleveland Clinic campus and is a four-and-a-half-mile drive from downtown and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The guestrooms feature amenities like flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers and minibars, while the suites have separate living spaces. Breakfast and lunch are offered at the hotel’s casual North Coast Café, and a weekday happy hour, eclectic dinner fare and a sushi bar can be found at chef Zack Bruell’s Table 45 restaurant and bar. A top-notch business center and a 24-hour gym round out the facilities.
In the Area
Cleveland’s Wade Park is just a short walk away; the green space is home to the Cleveland Museum of Art, where 30,000 works are housed in a beautiful Beaux-Arts building (we also recommend dinner at the museum’s Provenance restaurant, which offers a rotating exhibition–inspired three-course prix-fixe menu). Severance Hall, home to the Cleveland Orchestra, is also nearby; performances are offered throughout the year. The hotel’s concierge also recommends a visit to Little Italy and a breakfast of pastries at Presti’s Bakery and Café, followed by a stroll up Mayfield Road and Murray Hill to browse the galleries showcasing works by local artists.
How to Get There
the Cleveland Intercontinental is a very fine property, convenient to the Cleveland Clinic. Our room was quite comfortable, with a king sized bed, soft towels, dark shades, etc. The breakfast buffet is good, although the wait for an omelet can be quite long. The choice of dry cereals is limited, considering that individual boxes are supplied; I would have preferred to avoid the waste by offering such items in bulk; if one is offered individual boxes, a wider range would be easy to manage.
If one is driving to the hotel from the airport, be aware that the obvious (first) entrance to the property is at the wrong end of a one-way street; look for the (non-obvious) signs and go beyond the hotel before turning into the property.
there are a few negatives: i dislike the wastefulness of in-room keurigs, which also eliminate the possibility of a cup of herbal tea at night, there are some fiddly things at the breakfast buffet that could be upgraded, and the handwash in the lobby restroom does not offer enough flow to provide proper sanitation - again, easily remedied, if they want to bother.
Intercontinental Hotel Cleveland is a haven for those of us visiting the Cleveland Clinic.
All of the staff and especially Antoinette, on the Concierge Floor, are very caring and attentive to the special needs of people who find themselves facing various medical situations during there stay.
Those smiles and greetings mean the world to us.
We stayed at this hotel because it is near Case Western Reserve University where we were attending an alumni event. The architecture is dramatic for the setting, amidst a sea of Cleveland Clinic facilities. Like something one would expect in Dubai (though not a high rise). Our huge room had 2 queen beds and the bathroom had marble floor and both a tub and walk in shower. The staff were polite and helpful -for example the desk clerk printed out my airline boarding pass with a smile instead of pointing me down the hall to the computers. But the best part was their restaurant, Table 45. We had dinner after 6 hours of flying and were surprised at the gourmet meal. We had tomato leek soup which went way beyond its pedestrian name. Presented on a plate with a bowl containing a few slivers of roasted leek dressed with a balsamic sauce and a pitcher of the soup, which the server dramatically poured over the leeks. It was a thin tomato soup with a myriad of spices, just enough to tingle your tongue. Next I had salmon roasted in a tandoor oven which was still juicy, though cooked through. Presented on a bed of creamed barley with a bok choy arranged artistically under it and covered with thin slivers of roasted carrot and green beans. I can't describe the sauce, but it was PERFECT. My husband had roasted barley and vegetables which he really liked. He chose the flight of Scotch whiskeys for his drink and was impressed with the presentation in special glasses for Scotch as well as the selection of whiskeys.
The hotel is beautiful, the staff are welcoming and helpful, and the food is gourmet!
I stayed at the InterContinental Cleveland because my grandfather was having a surgery at Cleveland Clinic, so the location was very convenient. The hotel has direct access to the clinic. I stayed in one of the rooms on the 14th floor, where breakfast is included, plus snacks at different times of the day, and open beverages. The coffee was great! The food was delicious. The rooms were spacious and clean. All the staff was very helpful and friendly. This is the third time I stay at the InterContinental Cleveland and I can only say good things about the hotel.
This is the only place I will stay when visiting Cleveland. The best place, food, and location. Top notch and top quality. A great place especially if you have an appointment at the Cleveland Clinic. The beds are super comfortable. Room service is great as is the food. Our favorite thing is eating at Table 45!
