CLEVELAND — A new hotel is coming to Cleveland as part of the downtown revitalization.

Le Méridien Cleveland will transform two historic buildings on Euclid Avenue, which is formally known as ‘Millionaire’s Row.’

Project leaders say the hotel will be the company’s third adaptive re-use project, following projects in Philadelphia and Tampa.

The hotel will be in the heart of the Theater District, just steps from Playhouse Square. It will feature 206 modern guest rooms and suites, a full-service restaurant, signature bar, a lounge, indoor pool, fitness center and meeting and event space.

Formally known as ‘Millionaire’s Row,’ Euclid Avenue was where some of the city’s most affluent residents lived and a destination for European travelers in the early 1900s. The project will join the John Hartness Brown Building and 1100 Euclid Avenue, built in 1915 as an office building.

The project will also feature ground-floor retail space and a parking garage.

The hotel is slated to open in 2016.
