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
My husband had a procedure at the heart center that required us being here 4 nights. The Skywalk made it so easy to get back and forth for all of his appointments. I am so happy we stayed here. It was worth a few extra dollars to have peace of mind.
My husband and I were here in April 2018 when one of us had major surgery. Our stay was 11 nights, during one of the most difficult times in our lives. The accommodations were comfortable, the food was excellent, and 99% of our interactions with the staff were very positive. We were on the Club floor and the lounge personnel were fantastic and kind. (Thanks, Antoinette and Monica!) I hope we never have to be there for such a purpose again, but I can't say enough good things about the Intercontinental. Thanks for being there for us when we needed you.
The hotel staff is extremely courteous, from the front desk to the cleaning staff - they go out of their way to smile, say good morning, and ask if you need anything. Quality mattress and pillows helped me sleep like a rock. Easy wifi access, 24-hour valet parking.
We stayed at the Intercontinental for 4 nights while my husband had a hip resurfacing with the Cleveland Clinic. I had my two young children with me and the Intercontinental team helped in many ways. Someone was always available to assist us with luggage, food (our floor lounge team was incredible - thank you Annttoinette Petey), directions, and a kind smile during a stressful situation for our family. I am very grateful for the experience at the Intercontinental.
Everyone was so kind and wonderful. My reservation was lost but they made every effort to make it right with me. The bed was comfortable and the room was lovely and quiet. Thank you so much for the hospitality.
