Historic hotel to become Cleveland municipal offices
The city of Cleveland will be moving its municipal offices two blocks from their present location to a historic hotel in the heart of the city’s downtown. City officials approved a lease-to-purchase agreement for the former Cherokee Hotel property and agreed to appropriate $6.1 million in American Rescue Plan funds and $2 million in local funds for renovations to outfit the property according to city needs. Presently the location of Roy’s Alternators, the hotel has also served as an apartment complex in recent years and has been the focus of redevelopment and renovation efforts for downtown Cleveland. The seven-story Cherokee Hotel was completed in 1927.
