Guide Review - Cleveland Renaissance Hotel

The Cleveland Renaissance opened in 1918, a part of the Terminal Tower and Landmark Office Building complex, created by the Van Sweringen Brothers. The hotel's magnificent lobby and grand staircase still harken back to that gracious era.

Hotel is hot, Member alexmomma

This is a beautiful hotel however, it is old. Therefore the heating & air conditioning in this building leave alot to be desired. I stayed 4 days & my room was never cold. I left the a/c on the entire time & also shut the bathrom door so all the unit had to cool was the bedroom but the room never got cold. The hallways were sweltering. Add to that that there is no smoking anywhere in the building & you must go outside & risk getting mugged (as this is not the safest neighborhood) I would not recommend staying here.
