Developed as part of Forest City Enterprise’s massive renovation and expansion of the base of the Terminal Tower and its adjoining structures in the late 1980s, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel flanks the retail Avenue at Tower City on the west, with its primary public entrance (pictured here) at 1515 West Third Street. The structure of the hotel forms a mirror-image twin to the Skylight Office Tower to the east of The Avenue.
In addition to its 206 luxury rooms and suites (many with great views of the Cuyahoga River, the Flats and the city’s downtown core), The Ritz-Carlton features exceptional dining at its main lounge and at the restaurant Muse. The hotel also contains over 19,000 square feet of conference facilities, an indoor pool, and a round-the-clock fitness center.
As it is an integral part of Tower City Center, the hotel also offers direct access to all that the complex has to offer: Public Square, The Terminal Tower, The Skylight Office Tower, The Carl B. Stokes Federal Court House, the Avenue at Tower City retail complex, the Avenue’s Food Court, various restaurants, Tower City Cinemas, and the city’s rapid-rail transit system, with connections to such destinations as Shaker Square, Cleveland State University and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
Many of downtown Cleveland’s stellar attractions — Progressive Field, Quicken Loans Arena, the East 4th Street entertainment area, The Justice Center, the Cuyahoga River, and the Flats — are all within easy walking distance of the hotel. Still others are a short cab ride (or a more substantial hike) away: the Warehouse District, Cleveland Browns Stadium, The Great Lakes Science Center, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, Playhouse Square, West Side Market, and the city’s financial district.
