Occupying the 15th-tallest structure in Cleveland, Ohio, topping out at 320 feet, is the Marriott at Key Center, opened in 1991.

This high-end downtown hotel was developed as a component of Key Center, which also includes Key Tower — a 57-story Class A office tower that is the tallest building in both the City of Cleveland and the State of Ohio — and the restored historic Society for Savings Building, one of the city’s oldest banking houses. Key Center, situated on the northern flank of Public Square, was developed by local real estate mogul Richard E. Jacobs, and was designed by the architectural office of Cesar Pelli.

The architectural design and detailing of Key Tower and the Marriott at Key Center draw from the same palette: several shades of warm pinkish to reddish granite, interspersed with trims and features of silvered metal, gridding an array of dark-tinted windows. While the Key Tower sports a terraced pyramidal cap of metallic silver, the Marriott sports a cap of darker matte metal, and accents of deep red-brown. It is also graced with an elegant sculptural porte-cochere canopy of pale steel and glass.

The Marriott contains 385 rooms and 15 suites within its 25 floors. It features David’s Restaurant and Jake’s Lounge (both named for the hotel’s developers, Richard and David Jacobs), plus a fitness center and adjacent underground parking structure. The hotel is also directly connected to Key Tower, and contains a spacious and well-appointed lobby facing neighboring Mall A and the Fountain of Eternal Life.

From its location between Public Square and the lakefront, The Marriott at Key Center offers convenient access to the heart of the city’s business district, as well as to many of downtown Cleveland’s greatest attractions: Public Square, Tower City, Cleveland Browns Stadium, The Great Lakes Science Center, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, The Justice Center, Quicken Loans Arena and Progressive Field.

From 1910 to 1989, the site of the Marriott at Key Center had been occupied by The Engineers Building, a classic 14-story stone-clad structure named for the resident offices of The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers.
