Speaking of adding this to your summer bucket list, I’m actually on my way to Cedar Point right now!

If you’re not aware, Hotel Breakers (the hotel on property) recently went through a renovation. And I’m going to check it out. From the pictures I’ve seen online and from what others are saying, Hotel Breakers got a seriously needed upgrade!

New updates- Welcome to a re-styled, re-imagined and re-freshed Hotel Breakers. The hotel has been completely refurbished from the ground up in 2015.

As our guests arrived 110 years ago by train and ferry, they were looking for the same thing our guests are looking for in 2015 – a place to share time with family and friends. While the skyline of the park has changed over the 110 year history of the Hotel Breakers, our commitment to service hasn’t.

Located just steps away from Cedar Point, The Roller Coaster Capital of the World!, the park’s signature Hotel Breakers is the perfect place to stay after a perfect day.

The re-imagined beachfront hotel features a new grand entrance, updated lobby and public areas plus completely renovated guest rooms. Each guest room features an LCD TV, dorm-sized refrigerator, microwave plus new bedding, décor and furniture.

The outdoor pool deck will be expanded to include a water play area with zero-depth entry, a hot tub plus new deck chairs and umbrellas (outdoor pool areas open Memorial Day Weekend).

Guests will find a comfortable, social setting inside the five-story rotunda that features a full-service Starbucks and a refreshing Surf Lounge bar with a patio. The popular favorites of TGI Friday’s, Perkins and TOMO Hibachi Grill will continue to be available.

Complimentary Wi-FI and fitness room will be also be available.

Whether you will be visiting for the first time or the fiftieth, we are confident you will enjoy your stay on the shores of Lake Erie at Cedar Point’s Hotel Breakers.

  1. Note that there is a “convenience fee” buying online, which often makes Meijer a better deal.

  2. There is a $9.99 processing fee at the end online so I am not sure buying online is any cheaper than buying when you get there… Also note the all day drink pass does not include water as a drink only fountain drinks…
