Gala Re-Unveiling, Hotel Video Premiere, Community Open House
Set for October 27
CLEVELAND, OH – October 25, 2017 -- The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland has completed a massive, 18-month transformation of its 206 luxury guest rooms and public spaces, redefining the Downtown hotel experience and adding contemporary new elegance to an iconic Midwestern landmark. The remastering was led by Detroit-based developer Bedrock and includes opening of a new restaurant and gathering spot -- TURN Bar + Kitchen, and Core, a ground-breaking fitness center built for the most demanding of road warriors. Core provides a new take on the hotel workout, with advanced training and equipment options inspired by the champion athletes and team trainers who call downtown Cleveland home.
“We are thrilled to unveil this beautiful and complete transformation,” said Yael Ron, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland. “Our commitment to sharing the wonders of Cleveland with guests from throughout the world is behind this effort. I can think of no more warm, welcoming city than Cleveland, and we are so grateful for the opportunity help our guests live and breathe all that the city has to offer.”
The hotel’s supremely comfortable new guest rooms and suites feature an understated color palette of clear, clean blues, taupes and greys inspired in part by legendary Lake Erie –visible from many parts of the water-view property. Subtly glimmering finishes reflect Cleveland’s great steel-making history, while productivity-focused conveniences and sophisticated design touches complete the elegantly modern detailing.
The hotel arrival and lobby experience has been completely re-imagined, while fully redesigned, contemporary meeting space features access to the deliciously revolutionary LINKS. LINKS presents a one-of-a-kind, interactive working kitchen ideal for team-building experiences, group cooking adventures, and creative meeting breaks.
The hotel team’s innate pride in the city also has altered the whole concept of “concierge” – as every employee is now trained to be a concierge for fast-emerging Downtown and greater Cleveland. Each of the hotel’s ladies and gentlemen is already sharing new ways to discover the newly reawakened and re-energized city – helping guests to experience and capture it photographically. Some of the team’s local passions will be demonstrated on the hotel’s re-unveiling day of October 27, when at 5 p.m. a community open house will follow the hotel’s 2:00 p.m. private ribbon-cutting event and 2:40 p.m. premiere of The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland Video – a cinematographic ode to awakening Cleveland, as conceptualized by the ladies and gentlemen of the hotel.
