U.S. News ranks Ohio hotels; 9 of top 20 are in Cleveland, but not No. 1

Half of Ohio's best hotels are in Northeast Ohio, according to a new ranking by U.S. News & World Report.

The state's top hotel, however, is 250 miles southwest of Cleveland in downtown Cincinnati: the 21c Museum Hotel, open since 2012, with a modern-art gallery on the first two floors. The news magazine recently released its annual list of top hotels in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. Twenty hotels in Ohio - including nine in Cleveland - were included in the rankings. U.S. News used several factors to assess the properties, including industry awards, expert reviews and online guest opinions

Content Marketing World kicks off at Huntington Convention Center

Updated on September 5, 2017 at 4:14 PM Posted on September 5, 2017 at 4:08 PM

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Orange was the color of the day as Content Marketing World brought brightly clad attendees to downtown Cleveland to learn how to package their messages so consumers will hear them.

Orange is the unofficial color of the event, which bills itself as the the largest content marketing gathering in the world, said organizer Joe Pulizzi, founder of the Content Marketing Institute.

About 3,500 participants from 50 countries are expected at the event, which runs today through Friday at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland. Content Marketing World's 120 sessions and workshops offer lessons on how to create content, focus on audience needs, measure engagement and plan marketing strategies.

Cleveland is out of running for World Cup, but is still top contender for big events
By Kevin Kleps

A Gold Cup doubleheader July 15 at FirstEnergy Stadium drew a crowd of 27,934. Cleveland is hoping to host another Gold Cup event in 2019.

Cleveland is no longer in the running to be a host city for the 2026 World Cup, but that should have probably been expected.

Cleveland, you might remember, was belatedly included as a potential host by the United Bid Committee in July. At the time, FirstEnergy Stadium was one of 49 North American venues in the running to be part of the official bid that will be sent to FIFA by March 16, 2018.

A few weeks ago, the list of potential North American hosts for soccer's marquee tournament was narrowed to 25 areas in the U.S., plus four in Canada and three in Mexico. Cincinnati is the lone city in the Buckeye State that is still in contention.

Huntington Convention Center's reduce, reuse, recycle program benefits the community

From feeding food scraps to chickens and pigs to donating recycled materials to local charities, Huntington Convention Center complex officials found numerous ways to divert tons of material from landfills in 2017.l

Diverted from a landfill:

75,880 pounds of cardboard
46,440 pounds of wood pallets
18,480 pounds of mixed plastic
14,780 pounds of mixed fibers
10,000 pounds of glass
9,000 pounds of bulk and shredded paper
The equivalent of 23,005 plastic water bottles due to the use of water refill stations (which measures use)

The working farm on the premises, operated by the Levy food service and SMG team provided:

More than 2,000 pounds of honey from 16 colonies of bees
A quarter of the facility's eggs from hens
Seasonal greens, herbs, and vegetables from raised beds

Levy recycled nearly 25,000 pounds of food including:

Sending 13,500 pounds of leftovers to the Ed Keating Center through the Greater Cleveland Food Bank

Not sure if this is the right place for this news, but it appears that the city is concerned about Airbnb properties....

MANDATORY REFERRALS

Ordinance No. 198-18(Citywide – Introduced by Councilmember Brancatelli): Establishing a moratorium on the operation of limited lodging in residence districts until December 31, 2018.

With Turn, Ritz-Carlton puts new spin on 'hotel restaurant'
 
Chef Richard Arnoldi of the Ritz-Carlton Cleveland refuses to think of his realm in the conventional terms of a "hotel restaurant," he said. His perspective is thoughtfully grounded, more than a culinary flight of fancy.

That makes sense, considering that about 70% of the Ritz-Carlton's dining guests are locals, Arnoldi said, quickly substantiating that surprising number.

Some locals are drawn simply by curiosity. The Ritz-Carlton marquee carries a certain mystique, after all. Remember, too, that during the decades leading up to Cleveland's restaurant renaissance, many of the city's hotel dining rooms ranked among their era's foremost destinations: the Kon Tiki at the Sheraton-Cleveland, Marie Schreiber's Tavern Chop House at the Hollenden House, the Keg and Quarter at Jim Swingos' Celebrity Inn, the French Connection at Stouffer's Inn on the Square.

I’ve been hearing about this. Apparently Brancatelli is frustrated that folks are buying homes with the specific intent of operating them as Air BnBs.

Probably the best place to post this:

The next two weeks are going to be insanely busy downtown. First and foremost, the 42nd Cleveland International Fim Festival starts on Wednesday night at Playhouse Square with the usual orderly madness going on at Tower City Cinema from 4/5 - 4/15; The Indians home opener is Friday 4/6 and there is a tribe game every day through 4/15 (10 game homestand); and, the Cavs have home games on 4/5 and the last home game of the season on 4/11. Oh, then there is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction festivities going on during the same time with the actual induction ceremony on 4/14.

More to come...

Cleveland and Canton to hear next month if they'll host the NFL draft in 2019 or 2020
Updated 12:40 PM; Posted 11:11 AM

By Mary Kay Cabot, cleveland.com
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- It's said that for win-starved Browns fans, the NFL Draft is their Super Bowl.

Well, if that's the case, the Browns could be hosting the Super Bowl next year.

The combined cities of Cleveland and Canton are one of five finalists to host the draft either in 2019 or 2020, and will find out at the NFL spring league meeting May 21-23 in Atlanta.

The theme for this region's bid is "Bring it Home'' -- to the birthplace of the National Football League, which was founded here in 1920.

If the Cleveland and Canton are awarded the draft for 2019, it would coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the NFL, and if it's 2020, it will coincide with the league's centennial celebration. The two cities, along with the Browns, The Greater Cleveland Sports Commission and the Pro Football Hall of Fame have joined forces on the bid.
