On Thursday June 13th the CiF Team attended the Ribbon Cutting ceremony for the Aloft Hotel, part of the Flats East Bank development in downtownCleveland. The ceremony marked the official opening of the hotel to the public. Leading the event were Cuyahoga County Executive Mr. Ed FitzGerald, the Mayor of Cleveland Mr. Frank Jackson, and project developers Mr. Scott Wolstien, Ms. Iris Wolstein, and Mr. Adam Fishman.
The new hotel has 150 rooms, multiple meeting rooms, and a stylish lounge that overlooks the Cuyahoga River. The Aloft brand is a division of Starwood Hotels and the brand, which is designed to accommodate business travelers, has recently become one of fastest growing hotel franchises with locations around the globe.
The Aloft is connected to the new Ernst & Young office tower via a climate controlled walkway and will offer business travelers convenient and comfortable accommodations. The office tower has been open for several weeks now and tenants have been building out their spaces and moving into the facility. Over the following weeks three restaurants, located in the same building as the Aloft, will open to provide additional entertainment options for hotel patrons, employees working in the office tower, and area residents.
