The Convention Center Hotel, Hilton Cleveland Downtown, will connect the new Cleveland Convention Center, the Global Center for Health Innovation, and our downtown mall in a way that has never been done before. With this hotel, the Northeast Ohio region will be in a stronger position than ever to compete on a national and international stage. With the new Hilton Cleveland Downtown in place, the Cleveland Convention Center attendee experience will be world-class.

The hotel was designed by Atlanta architecture firm, Cooper Cary and is being constructed by Turner Construction Company, Ozanne Construction Company, and Van Aukin Akins Architects. Cuyahoga County and Turner Construction Company have voluntarily compiled an inclusion plan for construction to include 25% small businesses (SBEs), 7% female-owned businesses (FBEs), and 15% minority-owned businesses (MBEs). Cuyahoga County and Turner Construction Company are also committed to meeting or exceeding residency goals for employees hired during the construction project, including 40% Cuyahoga County residency and 20% City of Cleveland residency.

Hilton Hotels & Resorts, owned by Hilton Worldwide, will operate the hotel. Founded in 1919, Hilton Worldwide has more than 4,000 properties, with more than 650,000 rooms, in 90 countries and territories across the globe. The hotel will feature a 28-story tower filled with 600 guest rooms positioned atop a four-story podium of ballrooms, meeting space, retail space, and lobby. The hotel will feature a rooftop bar as well as underground connections to the Cleveland Convention Center and the Global Center for Health Innovation.

Situated on the site of the former Cuyahoga County Administration Building, the $272 million project is expected to employ 2,800 workers during the construction and 450 full-time jobs at the hotel. The new Hilton Cleveland Downtown is scheduled to open by 2016.
