Enjoy Ohio's relaxed Midwestern hospitality at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Akron. It's a quick drive from here to the jagged, tree-covered cliffs of the Cuyahoga River Valley.
Akron's streetscape is strewn with relics from the city's industrial past. Our hotels in Akron are near the ornate Stan Hywet Hall, a treasure trove of art and antiques built in 1912 for a wealthy local industrialist. The stately home has the look and feel of a genteel English countryside manor, complete with marble fireplaces, crystal chandeliers and prim gardens. In the city, the Invent Now Museum honors America's great inventors, from technology giants to researchers in life-saving medicine. You'll get the chance to create your own innovations thanks to the museum's hands-on exhibits.
Downtown Akron's restaurant scene is always buzzing with activity, but it's never expensive. Our Akron hotels sit near downtown diners known for their eclectic, reasonably priced meals. Dine on fresh, locally grown produce, tender beefsteaks and mouth-watering hamburgers at restaurants overlooking the historic 19th-century Ohio & Erie Canal. Top off your meal with a drink in a downtown bar. Craft brewer Ohio Brewing Company is known for its quality draft beers. Sample a cold mug or two in one of the city's sports bars, and join the locals in cheering on the Ohio State University Buckeyes in football and basketball.
Stay at our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Akron to enjoy the city's pleasures and venture out to the scenic Cuyahoga River Valley. The vintage train cars of the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad chug along the steep river gorge, where rushing waterfalls tumble over rocky cliffs. Passengers can buy tickets for a quick hour tour or spend a leisurely day riding the rails. Book our Akron hotels to discover more.
