This beautiful Arcade built in the late 1800's is a mainstay in the city of Cleveland. On a recent visit to Cleveland, I was able to walk through it and once again enjoy the beautiful architecture as I did 40 years ago when I worked in the downtown area. It is a gorgeous representation of the Victorian era and as... More

This restoration has brought an interesting destination to downtown Cleveland. Easy access to downtown sits and attractions. Great wedding facilitators and comfortable rooms! Great experience we have repeated now a few times when travels take us to Cleveland.

A nice way to use an old building; however, it was a Saturday around 5:30 and all the shops were closed! It seems with it being College Graduation weekend as well as Indians game and Red Hot Chili Peppers in town they would have made some sales had they been open later!

The architecture of this building is spectacular. Built in the late 1800's you just don't find buildings like this anymore. There is a hotel in what used to be stores fronts. If you are in CLE, this is a must see if you appreciate all things antique.

Granted, we were in Cleveland on the Indians' opening day, but even if folks had been in the Old Arcade and anything had been open, it is mostly empty storefronts, and while what's there seems sincere, until it fills up more, I'd consider it just a walkthrough. Reminiscent of Philly's Bourse, which is nicely located for tourists.

Mainly and entrance to the Hotel these days. A 3 story mall from the past. Definitely worth the stop to take a look.

A shocking, but wonderful, surprise once you open the doors. Numerous small shops and restaurants. Most were closed when we visited on Sunday. Aging, but well worth the effort that has been expended on its restoration and maintenance. A must-see if you're staying downtown.

If you've seen the cool photos of the lights and ceiling, you've seen pretty much the coolest part of this place. I'm sure it was awesome in its day, but now some of the shops are closed or run down. Still some cool small boutique shops and restaurants though!

Thank Olivia B
