CLEVELAND, OH— Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. will open Le Méridien here in January 2016 following the completion of an adaptive re-use project that will join together and transform two adjacent, historic buildings on Euclid Ave.

The development also will include 10,500 sq. ft. of ground-floor retail space and a 125-space parking garage.
In addition to 206 guestrooms and suites, Le Méridien Cleveland will feature a full-service restaurant, signature bar, 3,000-sq.-ft. lounge, indoor pool, 24-hour fitness center, and more than 12,000 sq. ft.feet of meeting and event space.
