New hotel planned for Playhouse Square

(Cleveland) - Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. announced Thursday that it will open Le Méridien Cleveland in Playhouse Square in January 2016. It will follow the completion of an adaptive re-use project that will join together and transform two adjacent, historic buildings on Euclid Avenue.

Owned by JHB Hotel, LLC, Le Méridien Cleveland will be the brand’s third historic adaptive re-use project in North America, following Le Méridien Philadelphia and Le Méridien Tampa.

“Le Méridien Cleveland will build upon the brand’s success with historic, adaptive re-use projects and provide travellers with an enticing new option in the heart of Cleveland’s thriving theatre district,” said Allison Reid, Senior Vice President of North America Development, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. “We are thrilled to work with JHB Hotel, LLC to introduce this contemporary lifestyle brand to Cleveland as part of the city’s on-going downtown rejuvenation.”

The new Le Méridien Cleveland will be developed at 1001-1101 Euclid Avenue as part of a visionary project that will connect and transform two adjacent buildings – the John Hartness Brown Building (JHB Building), originally constructed in 1901 as a multi-story office building with retail space, and 1101 Euclid Avenue, built in 1915 as an office building.

The development will also include 10,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a 125-space parking garage.

Situated in the heart of the city’s bustling theatre district, Le Méridien Cleveland will be adjacent to Playhouse Square.

In addition to 206 modern guest rooms and suites, Le Méridien Cleveland will feature a full-service restaurant, signature bar, 3,000 square-foot lounge, indoor pool, 24-hour fitness center, and more than 12,000 feet of state-of-the-art meeting and event space, perfect for social occasions and business functions.
