The largest city on Lake Erie, Cleveland connects the Midwest to both sides of the US, and Canada to the north. But it’s a playground in its own right, with parks, a vibrant arts and culture scene, and musical history. Adventures in the Forest City should be followed with a healthy dose of relaxation – time to soak up these Cleveland hotels with in-room jacuzzis, whirlpool baths and hot tubs.
An airport hotel needn’t lack plush amenities. Unwind before or after a flight with a soak at Sheraton Cleveland Airport Hotel, the only hotel on the grounds of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. Enjoy traveler perks including a complimentary 24-hour airport shuttle and a flight information board and boarding pass kiosk in the lobby, then try farm-to-table fare at Hemispheres, which serves international cuisine in a setting designed to reflect world travel.
Look for the giant GE Chandelier in downtown Cleveland’s Playhouse Square – the largest outdoor chandelier in North America – then head down the street to Crowne Plaza Cleveland. In the heart of the city’s theater district, this boutique-style hotel offers numerous ways to slow down, whether in your spacious guest room; in the property’s indoor heated pool, hot tub and sauna; or via indulgent eating at Ghost Light Restaurant & Lounge.
Take a brisk 10-minute walk from this DoubleTree to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, FirstEnergy Stadium, Great Lakes Science Center, or Huntington Convention Center. Or, get out your dowsing rod and follow it to Voinovich Bicentennial Park for artistic landscaping and views of Lake Erie. If it’s a warmer water experience you seek, retreat to your room’s tub before a restful night on your plush top bed.
Adjacent to Playhouse Square and just 10 minutes’ drive from Burke Lakefront Airport, the Comfort Inn Downtown Cleveland offers on-the-go travelers all they require — and then some. Grab-and-go breakfast, an on-site restaurant, free wifi, laundry facilities, in-room HBO access and a fitness center add to the experience, but the cherry on top is that select rooms feature two-person hot tubs.
Offering a free shuttle to and from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, just 3mi (4.8km) away, Wyndham Cleveland Airport is a choice option for jetsetters seeking quick access to their flight without being on airport grounds. Featuring bold splashes of red in its public spaces and guest rooms, you’ll also find a heated indoor pool, a fitness center, a 24-hour business center, and Cleveland-inspired cuisine and craft cocktails at CLE Legends restaurant and lounge.
Renaissance Cleveland Hotel helps guests savor a stay right off Public Square, a large landscaped plaza with a splash pad, seasonal skating rink and food trucks. The property’s Club Level rooms offer access to the handsome Club Lounge, where you can catch up on business or relax in a quiet setting. We like the one-bedroom Larger Suite, which offers 1,100sqft (102sqm) of space and a two-person whirlpool bath.
Just down the road from Public Square is Holiday Inn Express Cleveland Downtown, where you can stay in the largest standard guest rooms in Cleveland. Large tubs, pillow menus and blackout shades make for a secluded spa-like night when you’ve had your fill of city lights. Once you’re ready to make your public debut, free breakfast is downstairs in this property, which is set in the historic Guardian Bank Building, built in 1895.
