STAMFORD, CT—Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. has debuted its Westin brand in Cleveland, OH.
Managed by Sage Hospitality, the former Crowne Plaza hotel completed a $74-million renovation prior to re-opening as a Westin. The hotel features 484 rooms, 20,000 sq. ft. of meeting facilities and the full suite of Westin signature amenities and services. In addition, the hotel offers the brand’s signature WestinWORKOUT studio and full-service dining at Urban Farmer Cleveland’s Steakhouse, a concept featuring locally sourced foods by restaurateur Peter Karpinski.
The Westin Cleveland Downtown is located next to the brand-new Global Center for Health Innovation & Convention Center complex and within close proximity of the Cleveland Clinic, the headquarters of The Sherwin-Williams Company and KeyCorp, PNC Center, Playhouse Square, the Indians’ Progressive Field and FirstEnergy Stadium—home of the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) is 13 miles away.
