Cleveland is serviced by Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE). From the airport, you can take the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) Red Line to downtown Cleveland's Tower City Station (an approximately 30-minute ride). From there, it is about a 15-minute walk to the conference hotel. A ride on the Red Line costs $2.50, and trains depart from CLE every 15 minutes throughout most of the day. You can also take a shuttle or taxi from the airport directly to the hotel. A taxi ride costs approximately $35 and takes 15-30 minutes, depending on the time of day.


The Huntington Convention Center is located in the center of downtown Cleveland, so many attraction, restaurants, and shopping locations are an easy walk from the hotel. The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) also offers a number of affordable transportation options, including:

  • Rail service
  • Bus service
  • Downtown Trolley

The RTA even has an app for mobile ticketing - you can pay your fare on your phone and use your phone as your transit car!

Taxis, Uber, and Lyft are also all options for travel around Cleveland.
