Another new staple has landed in Cleveland! The Westin Cleveland Downtown has opened and was commemorated with a ribbon cutting ceremony! This new hotel is located in the financial district, just a few steps away from the Browns Stadium, The Cleveland Medical Mart, Convention Center and the Public Auditorium, home of TV20! The 484-room hotel boasts an array of guest experiences and offerings featuring Urban Farmer Cleveland’s Steakhouse, which was also welcomed with a ribbon cutting. The Westin is unique concept featuring locally sourced foods by restaurateur, Peter Karpinski, 20,000 square feet of event space, panoramic views of Lake Erie, and a very impressive art collection. More than 1,500 pieces of art by 30 local artists, including Olga Ziemska, Liz Maugans and Dana Oldfather are featured throughout the new hotel.
Sage Hospitality, one of the leading hotel management, development and investment companies in the country, along with many of Ohio and Cleveland-based businesses, were the leading forces behind The Westin Cleveland Downtown. At The Westin, the elements of the guests’ stay is the most important. The Westin offers so much promise and is a great addition to our city, with the 2016 Republican National Convention hoping to be held here, as well as the Gay Games coming to town in August. The Westin features 20 function rooms, ideal for major conventions and large social gatherings/meetings. This includes a 9,000-square-foot ballroom and multiple meeting rooms.
Another great feature of the hotel is it includes modern green initiatives such as the “Make a Green Choice” program. You can enjoy stunning views of Lake Erie and the vibrant city space. The hotel is in perfect walking distance to shopping at nearby Galleria at Erieview as well! Not only is The Westin close toFirst Energy Stadium, it is also in proximity of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Playhouse Square. This has been a masterpiece in the making, taking over two years to actually complete. The Westin has something for everyone to enjoy and will bring more revenue to our wonderful city!
Cleveland is very excited to welcome this new landmark! To see more about The Westin Hotel, make sure to watch our ‘Weekly-News-Wrap-Up”, where this will be featured!
