Address: 2017 E 9th St, Cleveland, OH 44115
Things to note: The 9 is our official conference hotel -- a converted 1906 bank. The opening night kick-off party will be held here in its famous Vault Bar (rumor has it John D. Rockefeller & Andrew Carnegie stored their most prized possessions there) and the conference workshops will take place here as well. The 9 is roughly 3-minutes by car or a little over 10-minutes by foot to the conference.
Address: 100 Lakeside Ave E, Cleveland, OH 44114
Things to note: This modern hotel is a 3-minute walk or super quick drive to the conference venue and is known for its Bar 32 -- an elegant place with craft cocktails with excellent views of the city and lake.
Address: 1380 E 6th St, Cleveland, OH 44114
Things to note: The Drury is a polished and renovated 1930s-era building and the home of the former Cleveland Board of Education. See if you can spot the details! The Drury is an INDUSTRY attendee favorite because of its location and vibe. It's known for large rooms and friendly staff, and it's across the street from the conference venue.
Address: 1460 E 9th St, Cleveland, OH 44114
Things to note: A great budget option nestled in the business district of downtown Cleveland. Simple, clean, affordable, and about a 7-minute walk or 3-minute car ride to the conference.
Address: 629 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH 44114
Things to note: Who hasn't stayed in a Holiday Inn? But have you stayed in one that was converted from a renovated 1894 neoclassical bank? This solid option is also nestled in Cleveland's business district and is close to East 4th, a Cleveland staple with plenty of restaurants and bars. You'll find your way to the conference by foot in under 10-minutes or a short 4-minute car ride.
