The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland completed a massive, 18-month transformation of its 206 luxury guest rooms and public spaces, adding contemporary new elegance to an iconic Midwestern landmark. The remastering was led by Detroit-based developer Bedrock and includes the opening of a new restaurant and gathering spot—TURN Bar + Kitchen and Core, a groundbreaking fitness center built for the most demanding of road warriors.

Core aims to provide 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 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 steel-making history, while productivity-focused conveniences and surprising, sophisticated design touches complete the elegantly modern detailing. 

Artwork has been selected to honor a brilliant talent pool in the region, as selections include pieces by local and regional artists offering fresh approaches to abstracts as well as famous landmarks, views, scenes and the spectacular natural history of the Midwest.  A rotating pool of local art now displayed in a seventh-floor gallery is complemented by works throughout the hotel’s public spaces from names such as Beverly Fishman, Scott Reeder, Adrian Falkner, Kelsey Brookes, Dana Oldfather, Sam Friedman and Andrea Jocki.

The hotel arrival and lobby experience has been completely reimagined, while fully redesigned, contemporary new meeting space features not only stylish interiors, but also access to the deliciously revolutionary LINKS. LINKS is located on the seventh floor and presents an interactive working kitchen ideal for teambuilding experiences, group cooking adventures and creative food and beverage breaks. The Ritz-Carlton Cleveland contains more than 19,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including 12 meeting rooms.

The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland is located in the heart of the city’s dynamic and fast-growing downtown entertainment, sports, dining, gaming, music, business, historic, arts and cultural district.
