    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 288 reviewsTripAdvisor (288)
    Free Parking

    Just north of the Greater Columbus Convention Center and within a few miles of many Columbus attractions, this hotel is a popular choice with those traveling for business and for pleasure. Accommodations at Le Méridien Columbus, The Joseph are decked out in earth tones and all come equipped with espresso machines, desks and refreshment centers, plus beds with crisp white linens and wooden headboards, though there are fees for Wi-Fi access. On-site amenities at this hotel include a fitness center, spa services and a restaurant, but not much else. However, recent guests didn't seem to mind: Travelers consistently praise the property's comfortable beds, the tasty food at the on-site eatery and the employees for being exceptionally hospitable and helpful. And because Le Méridien hotels are part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza
    Cincinnati, OH
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2877 reviewsTripAdvisor (2877)
    Free WiFi

    Located on West Fifth Street in Cincinnati's Central Business District, this hotel earns high praise from recent guests for its convenient location and sophisticated atmosphere.

    The Westin Cincinnati
    Cincinnati, OH
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1274 reviewsTripAdvisor (1274)

    Most recent guests report a pleasant stay at The Westin Cincinnati thanks to the property's convenient Fountain Square location in the downtown area. And while some say the decor is simplistic, guests appreciated that rooms are clean, comfortable and appointed with signature amenities, including Heavenly Beds, along with floor-to-ceiling windows and flat-screen TVs. What's more, the hotel underwent renovations in 2015 to freshen up its accommodations. The property's popular facilities, such as the indoor pool, two dining venues, WestinWORKOUT gym and 24-hour business center, also pleased guests. However, some travelers thought the room rates were a little pricey for an average business hotel. Because Westin is a member of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    The Cincinnatian Hotel
    Cincinnati, OH
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 63 reviewsTripAdvisor (63)
    Free WiFi

    The Cincinnatian Hotel first opened its doors in 1882, with a French Second Empire design and "Palace Hotel" for its name. Today, this historic hotel, located on Vine Street, is esteemed for The Palace restaurant, which is currently undergoing renovations until March 2018. The hotel's Cricket Lounge also boasts delectable fare and a relaxed ambiance, further enhanced by its surrounding eight-story atrium. But the elegant and comfortable rooms, appointed with calming beige and red accents, wooden furnishings, luxurious linens, complimentary Wi-Fi access and deep soaking tubs, are popular among guests, too. However, what recent visitors appreciate the most is the hotel's romantic atmosphere and extremely friendly staff. While recent guests loved the staff, they did notice that the older building could use some updating.

    The Westin Cleveland Downtown
    Cleveland, OH
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1272 reviewsTripAdvisor (1272)

    Location is the prime selling point of this Westin in Cleveland and what recent guests said they loved most about this property. The hotel puts guests within walking distance of both sightseeing hot spots, such as Progressive Field, FirstEnergy Stadium and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and business facilities like the Cleveland Convention Center. Visitors will find plenty to do on the premises as well. The Westin Cleveland Downtown boasts a 24-hour business center, a restaurant serving farm-to-table food and a fitness studio. But if you would rather get outside, the hotel provides running maps of the area and will lend guests workout gear for a small fee. Back at the hotel, travelers will find that rooms come with Westin's signature Heavenly Beds, flat-screen TVs, glass-topped work desks, internet access (for a fee) and views of the Cleveland skyline or Lake Erie. In addition to the Westin's ideal location, past guests lauded the hotel's employees saying they went above and beyond to make their stays pleasant. Though, some travelers said there was room for improvement with the hotel's room service and Wi-Fi speeds, and many wished the valet parking fee wasn't so steep (it's $30 per night). If you're a member of the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can offset costs by using points to cover your stay.

    Located on the eastern outskirts of downtown Cleveland and adjacent to the Cleveland Botanical Garden, Glidden House is a historic 60-room boutique hotel located on the Case Western Reserve University Campus.

Travelers can choose from a queen-sized bed, a king-sized bed or two double beds, and all rooms include 50-inch flat-screen TVs, coffee makers and complimentary Wi-Fi. Common areas are a mix of old and new, with modern furniture and vintage accents. On-site amenities include a business center, prominent art collections, and the Trentina restaurant that serves modern and Italian cuisine for dinner and weekend brunch only. Recent guests raved about the complimentary European-style breakfast. This hotel also has meeting and outdoor event space, making it popular with weddings.

    InterContinental Suites Hotel Cleveland

    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 762 reviewsTripAdvisor (762)
    Free WiFi

    Don't get this InterContinental mixed up with the InterContinental Cleveland. The InterContinental Suites Hotel Cleveland sits on Euclid Avenue, at the western end of the Cleveland Clinic Health System. And it sets itself apart from its sister property with its comfortable accommodations, furnished with iHome radios, minifridges and flat-screen TVs. Though it may not be your first pick for an extravagant getaway, guests say the InterContinental makes an excellent place to unwind after surgery thanks to its convenient location, ample space and attentive staff. The hotel is also home to a fitness center and the C2 Restaurant, Bar and Lounge. An added bonus: if you participate in the IHG Rewards Club program, you can earn or redeem points by choosing to stay here. The only complaint from some previous patrons was that the room rates were on the pricey side for the limited on-site amenities, adding that they wished a pool, a spa or additional on-site eateries were available.
