Best place to stay in Cleveland to see the Indians and party?

Question by Ken: Best place to stay in Cleveland to see the Indians and party?
Going to Cleveland in June and we are just wondering where the best place to stay is . We are seeing a ball game and then want some good place to hang and drink .

Best answer:

Answer by ponderingonline
If you want a cheap option, check out the Cleveland Hostel in the Market District. You would be a short walk to Cleveland’s top breweries — Great Lakes and Market Garden, the West Side Market, several bars and very good restaurants. You could walk a couple blocks to the West 25th Red Line rail station and take it to Tower City, which is connected to Progressive Field by a pedestrian walkway. RTA day passes are $ 5.

The hotels that are closest to Progressive Field, and to the East 4th St. entertainment/dining district and Warehouse District clubs/restaurants include the Raddison, Residence Inn, Hyatt, and Holiday Inn Express. The more expensive Ritz and Renaissance are in Tower City, which also houses the Horseshoe Casino. Tower City also is a short walk from the other hotels mentioned, as Cleveland has a very compact downtown and free downtown bus trolleys.

The Hilton Garden Inn is close to Progressive Field, but 5-10 minutes further away from East 4th St. than the first hotels mentioned. The Marriott is another more expensive option that is very close to the Warehouse District and a short walk to East 4th St. and Tower City.

Check out parking fees and Rock Hall package deals if you’re planning to visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

Sports bars downtown include the Winking Lizard and Harry Buffalo, both near Progressive Field. For music, check out Wilbert’s, downtown’s best dive bar, and the House of Blues.

Have fun!

Q&A: What are the best travel awards programs?

Question by Iafffu: What are the best travel awards programs?
I have taken a travel job, and I was wondering if anyone had any advice about which hotel/air/car rewards programs have the best rewards and quickest earning? I have to use Hertz or Avis, but everything else is up do me, within reason.

Best answer:

Answer by tylerd
The best airline frequent flyer programs are Continental and Delta. They fly nonstop to almost anywhere in the world. They also are partners with many other good airlines, so you can earn miles if you fly on their partners too. You can apply for a credit card through them and your first purchase gets you 15,000 bonus miles. Then, you can earn 1 to 3 miles for EVERY $ 1 dollar you spend with the card. So, you can earn a bunch of miles just with your every day shopping, not just flying.
