New Hotel is Needed in Lakewood, Say Patch Readers

Looks like Lakewood folks want a new hotel in town.

On Tuesday, for a feasibility study to determine whether a hotel could thrive in Lakewood.

So, what they thought of the idea.

In addition to readers overwhelmingly voting in favor of the idea — 77 supporting the idea for a new hotel — the comments poured in

Some of the discussions at have focused on capitalizing on some of the development in downtown Cleveland — think casino and Medical Mart — as well as the development along Detroit Avenue in Lakewood.

There’s already a on Clifton Boulevard, but city officials are also considering the possibility of attracting a “boutique hotel” to the city.

Here are a few of comments from Patch readers.

I think a Bed and Breakfast would be a better fit for downtown Lakewood. - 

If they do it they must do it right. Make it a boutique hotel. This doesn't mean super expensive, it just means it is unique and incredibly stylish. Somewhere that even Lakewoodians would like to stay for a "staycation.” -  

Lakewood is looking into attracting a Hotel to the city? Umm we have one. It's on Edgewater Dr. Maybe the Mayor and Council members don't get out much? Why would the spend 7grand on something that we already have? If they are looking to add more rooms for availability, Why would anyone suggest a B&B? -
