Book a stay at one of our Holiday Inn® hotels in Akron to discover Ohio's relaxed Midwestern hospitality. Head downtown to dine in cozy canal-side restaurants or visit the countryside for stunning views of the Cuyahoga River Valley.
Our hotels in Akron make it easy to discover Ohio's rich history and idyllic countryside. Marvel at the innovation of Ohio's most progressive thinkers-and try your hand at your own creations-at the interactive Invent Now Museum. Displays and exhibits celebrate American ingenuity, from life-saving medical breakthroughs to delicious novelties in food. Our Akron hotels are near Stan Hywet Hall, the elaborate mansion of Goodyear Tire magnate F.A. Seiberling. Browse the French and Italian reproduction furniture, then move outdoors to take in the estate's serene lagoons and landscaped gardens. Enjoy the nearby countryside on a vintage railroad train that winds through the scenic Cuyahoga Valley. A day ticket allows limitless rail travel from Akron past the rocky ledges and waterfalls of the river valley.
It's an easy drive from our Akron hotels to a cluster of energetic downtown eateries. Choose among restaurants that overlook the 19th-century Ohio & Erie Canal, once the shipping highway for northern Ohio. Akron's casual downtown restaurants pride themselves on their Midwestern friendliness and tasty food, from oversized steaks to crunchy salads packed with locally grown fruits and veggies. Before returning to your hotel in Akron, enjoy an Ohio Brewing Company Cardinal Ale crafted right here inside the always-buzzing microbrewery or visit a sports bar to watch the beloved Ohio State Buckeyes play football or basketball.
Book a stay in our Holiday Inn hotels in Akron in summer, when wildflowers carpet the Cuyahoga River Valley, or in autumn, when the valley is ablaze with the color of changing leaves.
