Bottom Line

The InterContinental Hotel Cleveland is a beautiful luxury hotel right on Cleveland Clinic’s campus. While the location is convenient for those needing easy access to the Clinic, the hotel does feel isolated, with few restaurants within walking distance, but there is a free Clinic shuttle that transports guests to University Circle. Its 295 rooms are clean and spacious, with exceptionally large and elegant marble bathrooms featuring separate walk-in showers and tubs. The hotel has a 500-seat amphitheater and large ballroom that host numerous medical meetings plus a 24-hour fitness center and two on-site restaurants. For lower room rates, travelers could check out the InterContinental Suites Hotel Cleveland, a sister property that's also located on the campus.

Scene

Classy hotel that hosts Clinic patients and meeting delegates from around the world 

Located in the heart of the world-famous Cleveland Clinic’s campus, the InterContinental attracts patients, visitors, and medical professionals, and is a regular venue for medical industry-related conferences and events. Polished marble floors and richly stained wood columns, door frames, and wall and ceiling panels create a sophisticated atmosphere, enhanced by a curve wooden front desk and a few orb-like light fixtures. Modern, designer-quality furniture is placed throughout the spacious lobby, foyers, and hallways, and an impressive modern art collection on the walls adds splashes of color to the otherwise muted decor. 

Location

On the Cleveland Clinic campus, about 14 minutes from downtown Cleveland

Map of InterContinental Hotel Cleveland

The hotel is the heart of Cleveland Clinic’s campus on the city’s East Side. It's connected to the Clinic’s facilities by an enclosed pedestrian walkway and adjacent to a large green space. There are a couple of fast food restaurants within a three- to five-minute walk from the hotel, but no other restaurants are within reasonable walking distance. The Clinic campus is safe with plenty of people walking about at all hours, but the surrounding area can feel a bit sketchy. 

It's just over a five-minute drive to University Circle and its museums, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland Botanical Garden, and Cleveland Museum of Art. The Clinic operates a free shuttle to and from the University Circle area that stops at the hotel. Case Western Reserve University is about four minutes away by car, and the Cleveland State University campus is a 10-minute drive. Most major downtown attractions can be reached in a drive of about 12 to 14 minutes, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Quicken Loans Arena, Progressive Field, and First Energy Stadium. A stop on the RTA Health Line that runs to downtown is a five-minute walk from the hotel entrance. Service to most downtown attractions takes 25 to 35 minutes. The Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is approximately a 25-minute drive or one hour by public transit.
