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
We have stayed at the Cleveland Intercontinental several times as well as intercontinental’s in other cities and countries. The rooms at the Cleveland hotel are great and so convenient to those visiting with Cleveland Clinic for treatment. The only issue I had is that even though my rooms were pre-paid they still charged me for the room each night. When I called to point this out to the front desk they made excuses that their system had missed handled it etc. etc. they said that it wasn’t an actual charge but just a hold on my credit card. In general I think they handled it poorly and the pending charges are still on my card several days later. I don’t think I will pre-pay again.
Stayed two nights to have a procedure done at the Cleveland Clinic, but had an awful experience both nights with two neighbors slamming doors and playing loud music till close to 3 am. Hotel staff and security seemed unable, or unwilling, to control the situation.
Short walk to main clinic building by skyway, best location for clinic business. Clean simple lines. Excellent bedding. In room pod coffee. Great shower with speakman club shower head. Spartan / contemporary furnishings. WIFI excellent. Clean. Helpful/ friendly staff. You pay dearly for the location. Breakfast buffet $$, but also high quality. Gym is adequate but equipment is dated, some of the handles / accessories missing. Call the Valet for your car, the text instruction on the tag fail every time. Parking is pricey too, you pay for the convenience.
