CLEVELAND - Keeping in step with the recent development and revitalization of the University Circle area, plans were announced on Friday for a new family-friendly hotel to break ground in 2011.
The announcement, made jointly by University Circle Inc. (UCI), University Hospitals, Snavely Development Company, and Concord Hospitality stated that a new 8 story, 150 room Courtyard by Marriot hotel will be built right in the middle of University Circle.
The hotel project is set to break ground in early 2011 and open for business in fall 2012.
“University Circle has always needed a large, reasonably-priced, family-friendly hotel to complement other lodgings in and around our neighborhood,” said Chris Ronayne, president of UCI in a press release. “Patients and their families, students and their families, and visitors from around the country and beyond will now find a first-class hotel in our world-class University Circle neighborhood.”
The new hotel -- Courtyard by Marriot – University Circle will be built on Cornell Drive directly across from University Hospitals’ main campus.
The University Circle area has seen many new projects and developments underway in the past year, including University Hospital's new Cancer Center, the new Uptown and Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).
University Hospital officials are also excited about the announcement.
“This new hotel should be of great benefit to the families of our patients and to other visitors to University Circle,” said Steven Standley, Chief Administrative Officer of University Hospitals in a press release. “The hotel fits very well with our new facilities opening during the next year. The hotel will help fulfill a considerable need in University Circle, and play a vital role in making University Circle even more attractive to visitors from the region and beyond.”
