Area code 216 is the North American telephone area code for Cleveland, Ohio, and most of its inner-ring suburbs in Cuyahoga County. Some of the local exchanges contained in the 216 area are: 281 (Atlantic), 476 (Garfield), 631 (Melrose), 642 (Michigan), and 749 (Shadyside).

It was one of the original area codes issued in the North American Numbering Plan on January 1, 1947. It originally covered the entire northeastern quadrant of Ohio, from Lorain to Youngstown. In 1997, as part of a three-way split, the southern portion, including Akron and Youngstown, became area code 330, while the eastern portion became area code 440.
