RE:imagined Design Provides Convenient and Comfortable Space for Travelers to the Cleveland Area Hotel team celebrates the completion of the property’s recent renovation.

Newton, MA (January , 2017) – Sonesta ES Suites Cleveland Westlake has been completely reimagined and reinvigorated to provide guests more than just a place to stay. Following a multi-million dollar renovation completed this summer, the new residence-style suites welcome guests with all the amenities of a small apartment creating the perfect mix of comfort and flexibility for business travelers and vacationers alike.

Located just 15 miles from downtown Cleveland and 14 miles from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, the property is perfect for business travelers looking for a convenient place to stay. 104 newly designed studio and two-bedroom suites feature spacious bedrooms, separate living and bath areas, providing room and versatility for those traveling on business for short or extended periods of time, as well as for families on vacation. The fully equipped kitchens and complimentary daily breakfast as well as on-site laundry save guests time and help manage budgets, while complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi and self-service printers help guests stay connected to work and home.

In addition to the unveiling of the reimagined property, Sonesta named Lindsay Olson as the General Manager of the Sonesta ES Suites Cleveland Westlake property. In this role, Olson will be tasked with overseeing the daily operational activities of the property and its staff. Working across teams, Olson will be instrumental in maintaining employee engagement, driving revenue and profitability and ensuring that Sonesta ES Suites Westlake provides guests with more than just a place to stay.
