Business trip to area required an overnight stay. Hotel is conveniently located to Cleveland, and a bit more economical. Lobby is clean and staff are polite and accommodating. Rooms are clean, but definitely in need of upgrades. Coffeemaker is sort of antiquated and only is provided a packet that makes one cup of coffee. Will seriously consider another hotel on...

We attended a social event in the ballroom and it was less then mediocre.
