Hotel & Area Information for the 2018 Annual Meeting



Hotel

The Host hotel for TMS’s 2018 Annual Meeting is the Hyatt Regency – Cleveland at The Arcade. The Arcade opened in May of 1890 as the first indoor shopping center in America. It quickly became one of downtown Cleveland’s most popular landmarks, and was nicknamed Cleveland’s Crystal Palace. John M. Eisenmann and George H. Smith designed it as a big-city mercantile center and modeled it after the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, Italy. The cost to build it was $875,000. It was financed by Cleveland’s most esteemed businessmen of the late 19th century: John D. Rockefeller, Steven V. Harkness, Louis Severance, Charles Brush, and Marcus Hanna.

The Arcade was the first building in Cleveland and the ninth in the country to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Over time, The Arcade Cleveland began to deteriorate, raising concerns about the landmark’s future. In an unprecedented public/private partnership, the city secured the funding to complete the renovation of this historic jewel. The $60 million renovation was completed in May of 2001.

Today, Hyatt Regency Cleveland at The Arcade occupies the top three levels of the atrium and the two towers. Boutique retail, services, a food court, and fine dining comprise the lower two levels, which are open to the public daily.

Airy rooms (some overlooking the Arcade) feature contemporary decor, vaulted ceilings and flat-screen TVs, as well as wifi access and laptop-size safes. En suite bathrooms have granite tubs. Suites add separate living areas and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Dining options include a refined restaurant, a cocktail lounge offering light fare, and a coffee bar. There’s also a 24-hour fitness facility, full-service spa, and business center.

Things to do in “Born Again” Cleveland

Cleveland was named on July 22, 1796, when surveyors of the Connecticut Land Company (Cleveland used to belong to Connecticut before Ohio became a state in 1803) laid the land into townships with a capital city and named it “Cleaveland” after their leader. The “a” in Cleaveland’s name was dropped so that it better fit newspaper headlines of the time. The Village of Cleveland was incorporated on Dec. 23, 1814. The area began rapid growth after the 1832 completion of the Ohio and Erie Canal. This key link between the Ohio River and the Great Lakes connected the city to the Atlantic Ocean via the Erie Canal and Hudson River, and later via the St. Lawrence Seaway. Its products could also reach markets on the Gulf of Mexico via the Mississippi River. The city’s prime geographic location as a transportation hub on the Great Lakes has played an important role in its development as a commercial and financial center and in the early 20th century as an important American manufacturing center. Because of its significant growth, it was known as the “Sixth City” of the US during this period. Like many former manufacturing cities, Cleveland lost much of its economic viability when blue-collar jobs declined in the 1960s. Since the turn of the 21st century, the city has improved infrastructure, developed a more diversified economy, gained a national reputation in medical fields, and invested in the arts. Cleveland is considered to be a prime example of revitalization of an older industrial city. Today startups and technology are replacing decades-old factory businesses, but the city hasn’t forgotten its past. It’s the city’s industrial history that has pushed its tech sector forward. With its elegant architecture and rich cultural heritage from the many immigrant groups that flocked to it in its manufacturing heyday, it embraces its past while looking towards the future. Cleveland is truly a “comeback city”.

With origins dating back to 1840 the West Side Market is Cleveland’s oldest publicly owned market and features more than 100 booths of ethnically diverse food. Begun as an open air marketplace on a tract of land, it has undergone significant growth. The centerpiece of the market, the yellow brick market house with an interior concourse, was designed by the architects Benjamin Hubbel & W. Dominick Benes who also designed many other buildings in the city (i.e.: the Cleveland Museum of Art, Wade Memorial Chapel at Lakeview Cemetery, etc.). The market house was opened to the public in 1912. Its 137 foot clock tower has stood as a Cleveland landmark for over a century. The last major renovation of the market took place in 2004 when the arcade portion of the market was enclosed and heated and major interior and architectural renovations were completed. Cleveland’s melting pot of immigrant groups have long played an important role in defining the local cuisine and are represented in the booths selling fine meats, vegetables, seafood, baked goods, dairy and cheese products, and fresh flowers. There are also booths that sell ready-to-eat foods and mainstays of the local cuisine including an abundance of Polish and Central European contributions, such as kielbasa, stuffed cabbage, and pierogis.

Eliot Ness, the famous crime fighter who brought down Al Capone, was Safety Director for the city in the 1930s. He was known to knock back a few cold ones at a local, popular bar. Today, that bar is home to the Brewpub at Great Lakes Brewing Company. During one of his stints, it’s rumored that his gun discharged a bullet that became lodged in the mahogany bar. Belly up to that same bar for a tall, cold amber lager aptly named “Eliot Ness.” As for the bullet hole? It’s still there.

Visit Playhouse Square Center, the second largest performing arts center in the United States behind New York City’s Lincoln Center. Catch a Broadway blockbuster in a vaudeville-style theater or do some fine dining next to a sparkling chandelier.

Cleveland is home to the Cleveland Orchestra, widely considered one of the world’s finest orchestras, and often referred to as the finest in the US. And, it plays in one of the most elegant concert venues, Severance Hall, which looks like an art deco jewel box adorned with blues and silvers and elegant, feminine curves.

There are two main art museums in Cleveland. The Cleveland Museum of Art is a major American art museum, with a collection that includes more than 40,000 works of art ranging over 6,000 years, from ancient masterpieces to contemporary pieces. You can lay eyes on one of the largest Egyptian relic collections in the world here. Admission is free! The Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland showcases established and emerging artists, particularly from the Cleveland area.

While at the gorgeous Lake View Cemetery / Wade Memorial Chapel, leave a penny on the tombstone of John D. Rockefeller, the wealthy industrialist who founded Standard Oil and spent much of his life in Cleveland. Legend has it that if you do so, you’ll be richly rewarded. Other notable residents interred here include President James A. Garfield, Eliot Ness and Carl B. Stokes.

Scenes from the classic movie, A Christmas Story, were filmed inside a house in the Tremont neighborhood. Today the home has been renovated to look exactly as portrayed in the movie. The home is open year round for tours and overnight stays. Directly across the street from the house is the official A Christmas Story House Museum, which features original props, costumes and memorabilia from the film, as well as hundreds of rare behind-the-scenes photos

While Cleveland is very much a city made up of dozens of diverse, eclectic neighborhoods, it’s Downtown Cleveland that dazzles after dusk. Nosh on farm-to-table treats at the restaurants of celebrity chefs, bowl a few strikes, sip high-end cocktails, or visit brewpubs along East 4th Street. Grab a nightcap and cut a rug in the Warehouse District. Or, dine and drink along the waterfront in the newly revived East Bank of the Flats. And don’t forget about Cleveland’s Rock ‘n Roll scene – from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to the historic Beachland Ballroom, the steamy vinyl being pressed at Gotta Groove Records, and at the music clubs, arenas and amphitheaters headlining everything from major national acts to local indie favorites.
