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.

Not the most up dated property on the exterior, but the inside was nice. As in IHG Gold Club member, we were placed on the top floor which had it's own lock to get on to the floor. There were 24/7[More] quiet signs, and the other quests on the floor adhered to these restrictions. There was a special breakfast bar on this floor for top floor guests which we appreciated.[Less]
Ok but old and dated rooms
nice place but tired and old looking in the rooms, well maintained but obviously dated[Less]
I Found A Great Hotel Along the I-80 Corridor

Good rooms, fair service.
The check-in took some time. It seemed that the front desk had difficulties checking in people in front of me. That made my check in take for about 20 minutes when it is[More] usually about 3 minutes. The location is not surrounded by many things but in a good location. I might book a hotel near Hudson if I was there again for business.[Less]
