The Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland Hotel Review: Most critics agree: this is the height of luxury lodging in Cleveland. Some even say it’s the city’s only luxury hotel. Regardless, this property stays true to the elegant, sophisticated Ritz style. Those in town for sports and entertainment events can bask in the good life, and then hit the walkway to Jacob’s Field and Gund Arena. Regular (relatively speaking) guest rooms and suites are located on the 7th through 11th floors. All have sweeping city views and also offer glimpses of either the Cuyahoga River or Lake Erie. Further up, the key accessible Club Level pampers with extra deluxe accommodations and a Club Lounge featuring complimentary food service five times daily. Signature afternoon tea is served in the Lobby Lounge. Handsome meeting spaces include board rooms, balls rooms and more. For weddings, this is perhaps one of the best venues in the region; the hotel can arrange everything from floral arrangements to cuisine. The fitness center rivals well-equipped health clubs, and the indoor pool feels as if it belongs in a chic, urban spa.
