Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport – This airport is roughly 20 minutes from downtown Cleveland, and is a hub for United/Continental and Southwest, which frequently have the cheapest airfares. Many other airlines also fly into/out of CLE, including American, US Air and Delta. Additionally, the Cleveland RTA’s Red Line train runs right from CLE to downtown if you don’t want to rent a car.
Akron-Canton Airport – This is roughly 75 minutes south of downtown Cleveland, but has airlines that Cleveland-Hopkins does not (specifically AirTran). Good deals can be had if you’re coming from the East Coast or Chicago!
Megabus – This low-cost bus line was a crucial element in our long-distance relationship early on, and while it might not be the quickest route to Cleveland, it’s definitely the cheapest! Direct routes to Cleveland run from Chicago, Detroit, Ann Arbor, Toledo and Pittsburgh, and drop off downtown at Tower City Center.
Amtrak – There are two lines that run right into the heart of Cleveland’s downtown area, the Capitol Limited (which runs Chicago-Washington, D.C.) and the Lake Shore Limited (which runs Chicago-Boston). Please keep in mind both of these trains arrive to and depart from Cleveland at very early hours of the morning!
There are many lodging options in the Greater Cleveland Area, but downtown Cleveland is undeniably the best place to stay. The Wyndham Cleveland at Playhouse Square is accommodating our wedding guests by providing a block of rooms at a special rate of $119/night. To make your reservation, please book online using group code 1004142WE or call the Wyndham and request the Welbers-Heisel room block. If you’d like an extended stay in downtown Cleveland, the hotel will also hold the rate two days prior and two days after our wedding weekend. The Wyndham will hold our block until September 13th. Space is limited, so please don’t wait!
