Guide Review - Ritz Carlton Hotel

Cleveland's Ritz Carlton is an elegant addition to downtown. The hotel is attached to the Tower City shopping complex, home to the Hard Rock Cafe; Ann Taylor, Brooks Brothers, and dozens of other up-scale shops; an international food court; and a multi-screen cinema complex. You can also take tunnels and covered walkways from the Ritz to Progressive Field ballpark, the Quicken Loans Arena, and the Landmark office complex, home to Sherwin-Williams Company, among other tenants. The RTA red line connects Tower City with the airport for a $3.50 fare.

The Ritz Carlton is luxuriously appointed, with a small check-in area downstairs and public rooms on the 4th level. The 206 guest rooms and suites are large and all feature scenic city or Lake Erie views. Room amenities include free high-speed Internet access, complimentary daily newspapers, an in-room safe, a fully-stocked mini-bar, a marble bath, and a hair dryer. Club level rooms have access to a private, club level lounge, which offers 24-hour concierge service and five daily complimentary food presentations.
