The date is good for me and the weather in Cleveland should be nice mid-May. Not too hot yet and still warm enough to enjoy being outdoors.
I've started looking at hotels in the area and we need to decide if we want to be downtown where the action is; Jacob's Field (Indians), Rock & Roll HOF, shopping, dining and the flats OR closer to the airport. I'd suggest the downtown area. The hotels cost a little more but you can walk to so many things.
Downtown has several hotels to choose from and a varied price; Comfort Inn / app. $75, Holiday Inn Express / app. $90 ,Embassy Suites / app. $105, Hyatt Regency / app. $139, Renaissance Cleveland / app. $149, Sheraton cleveland City Centre / app. $149, Hilton Garden Inn Cleveland Downtown / app. $169, AND the Ritz Carlton at about $199 a night. These are just approximate rates I found online. I'm not sure but the only one that appears to have suites is the Embassy Suites.
How many rooms would we need? I could get in touch with these hotels and find out what the rate would be for a block of rooms. Have you ever had a hotel give you deals for that? Or for other things?
Anything else I can help with just let me know. I don't work outside the home right now so I can offer my time for doing the research. And I live just an hour from Cleve. so can find out almost anything we need to know. Also, I have a sister who lives in cleveland and used to work at Jacob's field so she can help with downtown info.
It seems like this is taking shape! I'm so excited!!!!
