Radisson Hotel Cleveland - Gateway
Travel Blogs from Cleveland
This is one of my favorite overnights unfortunately we got in too late and had to leave really early in the morning so not enough time to do anything. It's a nice hotel with a comfortable bed and a lot around the hotel.
Another 530 miles today. No rain ::) Checked the weather and tomorrow looks nice in the Lehigh Valley, to have only 2 days of all rain out of 18 we REALLY lucked out. As you saw on previous posts there were some spots of rain and the storm in Minnesota on our way out, but all in all was the best we could have asked for. I always say a prayer to my dad and Shane's mom before we leave to keep us safe on the road ((they have both passed on) and someone ...
OK folks, here's your chance to exercise your sleuthing skills. Included are 2 photos of some roadways of rural central Ohio, part of a delightful journey to be described Ina later blog. In the pictures you will see a wear pattern different from the usual. In these pictures the centerline is just left of the lighter, silvery areas. It was common to see in this region. ...
... Forever" (think of the opening tunes).
John Lennon's green Sgt. Pepper suit used for the album of that name.
Costumes worn by various artists such as the Stones, Bowie, Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix. Loads of guitars and drums.
Afterward, we had dinner at an Indian restaurant and drove on to Elyria to spend the night.
We left South Bend early so we could drive 4 1/2 hours across Indiana and into Ohio to watch the Akron Rubber Ducks play an afternoon game (Sophie really wanted to see two of her favorite things - baseball and rubber ducks - together). Canal Park is a great little ballpark and the Rubber Ducks won, so we had fun, but there wasn't a single rubber duck to be found in the souvenir shop. From there we drove on, out of Ohio, a little way through Pennsylvania, and into New York for a camping ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Hotel Cleveland - Gateway
If you value your sleep... stay here!
I really enjoyed my recent stay at this hotel. Lobby area is very elegant/contemporary, yet has somewhat of a rustic theme to it. Overall decor is well done. The best part about this place however is the beds. I was late to an early morning meeting because they are so extremely comfortable. They are Sleep Number beds, so you can control how firm or soft you want the mattress to be. The room itself was also very nice with all of the amenities standard at Radissons: high-speed internet (wireless), daily newspaper, coffeemaker, 2 phones, iron/ironing board, and hairdryer. The bathroom also had a makeup mirror that I know my wife would have appreciated. The large lounge chair in the room was also a plus. One downside to the room was the A/C was not the best. Valet parking was nice, and always quick. Bell service was as well. Everything went very smooth and all staff were extremely friendly and professional. There are also several nice restaurants closeby as well as the hotel restaurant which I did not eat at. Overall... I would definately return here, and will look for other Radissons in the future due to the high quality of their beds that they are installing in their guest rooms.
I had the opportunity to stay here on a Friday night recently and I found the location to be great for nightlife. The hotel is within a block of my favorite downtown pubs. There is no short supply of parking options in that area, being so close to Gund Arena and Jacob's Field. Tower City is a short walk away. Hilarities comedy club is a block over and several fine restaurants surround the hotel. The hotel itself has a very pleasant decor. Crown molding in the rooms, arched doorways, creative lighting, and craftsman lamps an tables all give the property a homey feel. The only drawbacks I found were fairly minor. The carpet in my room had a few stains. The only ice machine is on the 8th floor (which we were on), however I had to go to the 7th floor for a soda. We were also accidentally awaken by a misguided maintenance man at 8:30 in the morning. However when my wife reported the incident, the front desk removed the movie we had rented as an apology. All in all, I was very pleased with the property and my stay. I would be happy to return.
Wonderful place to stay in Cleveland
Stayed at this hotel Saturday night June 26. Was in town to see a game at the Jake witha friend. We stayed here b/c I had a gift certificate issued by Radisson corp due to a disgusting stay I had at their Albuquerque NM property. Let's just say that this Radisson is the complete opposite of the one in Alb. The staff was extremely friendly. Everyone from the front desk people to the bellhops/valet parking team to the servers in the little dining area were all extremely polite and helpful. Our room was very nice, and must have recently been renovated. The hotel's location was perfect as we could walk to the Jake in about 2 minutes. All in all Radisson should be proud of this property!
Great Location - Great Hotel!
This hotel was the closest we found to Jacobs Field and Gund Arena. We were literally less than a 2 minute walk from each venue. The nightlife around the hotel in the Gateway district was awesome! The hotel itself was very clean and very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and very professional. If I ever go back to see an Indians or Cavs game I will definitely be staying here!
Great Location, great hotel
This hotel is a great location for those going to Jacobs Field or the Gund Arena. You can walk to Cleveland Browns Stadium if you don't mind a little bit of a walk. I've even walked down to the Flats. I have stayed at this hotel over 10 times and I've never had a problem. Love the little touch of warm cookies too. I would recommended this hotel to anyone.
Good Location - Bad Hotel
My boyfriend and I stayed on 3/27/2004. The location is great for sporting events - it's right across from Gund arena, and right down the street from Jacob's field. The hotel itself is NOT nice. I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel that was that run down. It smelled, the carpet was dirty, and it just seemed really run down.
Looks great from the outside
My husband & I had the opportunity to go to a concert at the Gund Arena recently. We live 1 hour away from Cleveland and since the concert was during the week we decided to stay at the Radisson Gateway. This hotel is in a newly updated area of Downtown Cleveland. We expected it to be clean and well maintained. We were very wrong. The floor in the elevators looked like they haven't been vacuumed in days. The curtains in the rooms were black with dirt, the windows looked like they haven't been cleaned in months. The beds were hard, the blankets were barely more than heavy sheets ! We have stayed in some pretty raunchy hotel rooms over the years and always got exactly what we paid for. Until now. For the price we paid which I have to add was very over priced, we were taken to the cleaners. From the look of the room we were the only ones. I would never recommend the Radisson to anyone and we will never stay there again. I am extremely disappointed and if I thought it was possible I would ask for my money back !
Great Location for Sports
Perfect location for a basketball game at Gund arena!! If you are visiting town for a basketball game, stay here. It literally took me less than 5 minutes to get from my seats in the arena back to my ROOM in the hotel. Jacobs Field is just on the other side of the arena; just a few minutes away. Nearby attractions include many restaurants, a comedy club at Pickwick & Frolic which was a nice venue and had a great dinner as well. Both at great prices. There is a huge shopping area just a block away that includes dozens of stores and the hard rock cafe. The hotel was good. Clean, friendly, comfortable. Nothing outstanding, but nothing to complain about, either. Bottom line - location, location, location.
Attractive, great location, affordable
An attractively designed hotel in American Mission style: cute courtyard, well-appointed rooms, comfortable bed. Meeting rooms were outstanding: all had windows open to the outside. Location couldn't be better: across the street from Cleveland Indians field and Cavaliers arena; two blocks from Tower City where all of the commuter rail lines (including the airport line) meet; reasonable walk to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Convention Center, downtown office buildings. Good public-transportation options or reasonable cab fare to art museum, symphony hall, Cleveland Clinic, Case Western--all located around University Circle. Decent hotel restaurant, and dozens of great restaurants within walking distance. Service was friendly and efficient. Rates are much lower than you'd expect for a quality hotel in a central location.
Just came back from a two night stay at the hotel. It was a great place to stay, the staff was very helpful. Room very clean and nice as well. Very close to the baseball field, the Gund arena, and Tower City, but a bit of a walk from the Hall of Fame (more like 25 minutes than the 15 minutes they said on the website). I would recommend! The only downside is that there weren't many places to go for dinner/out that were near the hotel, but I would still recommend.
