When planning a visit to InterContinental Cleveland, you should know that there’s something special about Cleveland in each season. Winter is pure, natural beauty with numerous outdoor options, including carriage rides, skiing, skating and even ice fishing. Spring brings the return of baseball. There’s never a shortage of boaters, beach goers or alfresco diners in the summer. But fall is perhaps the most beloved — and beautiful — time of the year. And one the hotel staff all agrees is the perfect time to visit the city.
Cleveland is unique in that as an urban setting, there’s nature all around. Take the Cleveland Metroparks, for example, with more than 22,000 acres across 18 reservations of hiking trails, waterfalls, bike baths and more. It’s a remarkable find in a major metropolitan city and an autumn attraction.
Fall also brings out some of the best flavors of the Midwest. Over the past five years in particular, Cleveland has earned quite the reputation as a foodie destination, thanks in large part to the close proximity to farmers. There are chefs within the city (including Michael Symon, Jonathon Sawyer and the luxury hotel’s own Zack Bruell) who could go up against the best of the best and come out ahead. And the season is a time when the bounty and flavors inspire this talented group, and it shows.
