I attended a convention of sorts for a card game called Magic the Gathering in downtown Cleveland at the end of February. There was a room block for the Hilton at the convention center that was full, but surprisingly there was a second room block for the Holiday Inn Express,

We stayed here for a short spring break trip. From the friendliest face at check in, to the comfort and cleanliness of the room, to the nicest, most helpful staff at the front desk & valet, our trip was made! Rashid at the front desk was so kind, helpful, and friendly - if I

Absolutely the most gorgeous hotel I’ve ever stayed at. I even had a front view of the vibrant downtown scene. However I was eight floors up and it literally took 12 minutes to get hot water. There was no water fountain anywhere on property, and I was not told they had three

Hi maxx0074, Thank you for choosing to stay at our hotel during your dad's heart surgery and for the candid feedback. I was quite concerned to see your disappointment with our parking and especially with the customer service you received when you tried to shorten the stay on your reservation. I understand your frustration and this should not have been the case. I'd like to follow up and explain clearly the policy but I am not able to send you a Private Message. You are welcome to send us a Private Message here on TripAdvisor to IHGService including reference to your TripAdvisor Account Name so we can follow up on your experience. Again, thank you for the review and for staying with us. Despite the disappointment, I hope that you would still consider staying with us again in the future. Mike F. Case Manager IHGService

Hotel is very close to E 4th st restaurants, sports arenas and casino. Rooms are very large and clean. Elevators are small and no key card required. We prefer elevators with key cards so only hotel guests can operate them. Valet parking was very efficient.

It is about a 10 minute walk. If you take the route from the north side of the arena, through the open aired surface parking lot, across Prospect, and through East 4th Street to Euclid, you should be safe and surrounded by a good crowd at all times.
