Cali Tribe Fan Needs Help

Unread postby thenewdealer » Tue May 22, 2007 11:09 pm

Hello Tribe Fans.

I will be going to my first game to the Jake later this summer...all the way from California.

Could someone give me some Hotel recommendations--preferrably something that is in walking distance? Perhaps closer to some other sites?

Thanks for the help!

I would stay at either of these places...both walking distance to the jake and a close cab ride to W 6th which is your nightlife in cleveland

closest walk to the jake

Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites
639 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH
(216) 443-1000 - close call -
Category: Motels & Hotels

this place is pretty close to all the shows and comedy clubs and still close to the jake

Wyndham Cleveland-Playhouse Sq
1260 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH
(216) 615-7500 - close call -
Category: Hotels & Motels


bars all around

Mariott Residence Inn

It is a stones throw from the Jake, and several great places to eat and drink all around (Winking Lizard, Flannery's, Harry Buffalo, Panini's Boneyard, etc)

There's also a Radisson Gateway

http://www.radisson.com/clevelandoh_gateway

Same general neighborhood as the Marriott Residence Inn.

On the south side of the Jake is Hilton Garden Inn

that's a two block walk from most of the bars, instead of being on the same block (Marriott and Radisson)

The Residence Inn has great rooms, and as Consig mentioned, is in a great location. Every time I stay downtown, it's there.

Downtown Hotels

Unread postby ArtGold » Wed May 23, 2007 11:43 am

Hi fellow California guy, Cleveland is really far away from here.

Before relocating to California last year I was on assignment in downtown Cleveland for eight months. After trying different hotels I settled on the Hampton on E 9th st near Superior. The rooms were consistently clean, and they have a decent continental breakfast. The walk to the Jake is only about 1/2 mile, and the street is safe and well lit.

I'm making a trip to Cleveland to see the Tribe in late July. Looking at the Hampton on 9th as recommended here or the Embassy Suites on 9th. One of these have an advantage over the other?

To me it was just a matter of cleanliness, which I am a stickler about. I found the Hampton to be a little cleaner, perhaps because they have a more limited food selection, and folks tend to take quite a bit of stuff back to their rooms at Embassy.

Also, if walking back in the evening, Hampton keeps you on the very well lit E 9th, whereas Embassy isn't quite as direct a walk.

Great, thanks.


So does anybody have recommendations for stuff to do during the day on weekdays? I've never been to Cleveland. Really looking forward to it.
