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.
