Cleveland Clinic May Build Holiday Inn Pending City's OK

Cleveland Clinic may build a Holiday Inn in partnership with a major hotel operator if the city of Cleveland approves demolition of a historic church, according to a Plain Dealer report.

Cleveland Clinic and InterContinental Hotels Group are considering a 270- to 275-room Holiday Inn to replace the Church of Transfiguration, which is owned by the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio. The diocese has asked for city permission to raze the structure and also entered a purchase agreement with Cleveland Clinic for the property.

The hotel would replace Cleveland Clinic's recently closed 231-room guesthouse. Once the site is cleared, Cleveland Clinic will combine the 0.83-acre property with land on either side to create a development pad for a hotel.

"Every day that we don't have the hotel opened, with the closure of the guesthouse, it's an ongoing challenge," Brian Smith, Cleveland Clinic's director of strategic project development, told the Plain Dealer.

The potential purchase price for the church land was not specified.
