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.
The stay was great! The only thing I would recommend is adding blinds as a window treatment in the pool room. The room is right in front of the lobby and everyone coming and going can see. Also,[More] updating the furniture in the lobby; looks dated.[Less]
Staff was fantastic! Really enjoyed the bed and cleanliness. Complimentary breakfast was one of the best we've ever had[Less]

I was very happy with our stay at Holiday Inn Express.The room was clean and fresh,nice staff,and great breakfast.[Less]
Great Place, Thank you!
From the phone conversation with your associate there onsite when I made the initial reservation until the time we checked out, I was blown away at how professional and courteous your associates[More] were. We were in town because my father n law had passed away and your establishment went as far as having a beautiful bouquet of flowers for my and my family in the room when we got there. Wow! Thank you so much![Less]
Great variety and tons of breakfast options. The staff working kept the area clean and tidy too.[Less]
Staybridge Suites exceeded my expectations. The 2 bedroom suite exactly met our needs. It only lacked in sugar for my tea! A summer rental quality. I will definitely be on the lookout for a[More] Staybridge on my next travels.[Less]

This is a new location for HI Express in the area. Having stayed at HI Express locations around the country, this is a convenient location to local highways. Many community amenities are in the area[More] and property is very easy to find.[Less]
Enjoyed the room with the whirlpool tub
We stayed in a room with a whirlpool tub and it was very relaxing. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well. Wish the tv in the room was a little larger. The shower head in the bathroom was[More] nice. Sometimes hotels have really bad showerheads but this one was really nice. Everything was great except the fact that we could hear every footstep from the people above us and we could hear the people next door to us filling and running their whirlpool tub. Very thin walls it seems. Overall we enjoyed our stay.[Less]
The hotel was everything I expected, but to be knit-picky the room was kinda dated along with the shower and the blinds didn't close all the way. Although these are very minor issues, I would[More] definitely stay here again.[Less]
