The 9 To Bring A New Cosmopolitan Lifestyle To Downtown Cleveland

CLEVELAND, Oct. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A distinctive, new complex being constructed at the intersection of E. 9 th and Euclid in downtown Cleveland will soon become an urban luxury destination that will redefine the way locals and travelers live, stay, work and play in the city.

It's called The 9. And when it opens in late 2014, the former AmeriTrust tower and historic Cleveland Trust Rotunda will be transformed into a modern-meets-historic luxury hotel called The Metropolitan at The 9, high-end urban residences, the Adega restaurant (featuring modern Mediterranean cuisine and downtown's largest outdoor dining area), a theater (The Alex Theater) that features live entertainment and film screenings, 12,000 feet of meeting and event space, a Heinen's grocery store and marketplace, plus plenty of other amenities.

Among those amenities will be Azure Sky, downtown's largest rooftop bar and sun deck, an indoor dog park, plus a spa and fitness club. You'll also be able to rent a bike or charge the batteries on your Tesla, visit The 9's speakeasy or have a pastrami sandwich at the New York-style deli.

Residents of The 9 can choose from 105 spacious luxury apartments, including one of 16 custom-designed Sky Suites with massive windows that provide panoramic views of downtown Cleveland. All residences will have access to The Metropolitan Hotel's guest services, including housekeeping, 24-hour room service and valet parking.

Cleveland-based GEIS Companies has teamed up with Sandvick Architects of Cleveland (a consultant on the project that specializes in adapting historic structures) to bring new life to a long overlooked area of the city. The team plans to preserve and interlace iconic architectural features with modern technology and design concepts.

"The 9 will be like no other hotel or residence in the city – or the country for that matter," said Greg Geis, CEO of GEIS Companies. "From the old bank vaults that we are turning into private dining areas and the magnificent Tiffany glass dome of the rotunda building, to the bellmen and intuitive technology that will recognize and anticipate our visitors' needs, The 9 will be a marquee destination that rivals anything in the country – but also celebrates what's great about Cleveland and its rich history."

The Metropolitan Hotel will be affiliated with Autograph Collection, Marriott International's collection of more than 50 independent hotels, each offering a discerning and unique guest experience. The hotel's 156 rooms and suites are being designed by GEIS-owned GLSD Architects.
