The Tudor Arms Hotel Reclaims Her Glory Days with a Snazzy Renovation

Cleveland's grand resurgence continues with the impressive restoration of the stunning Tudor Arms Hotel.

Reopening in 2011 as a DoubleTree Hotel, this historic building is set in the city's East Side Cultural District on Carnegie Avenue, and perfectly represents the vibrancy of today's renewal.

This Gothic Revival building, completed in 1933, was home to the trendy Cleveland Club's lavish entertainment until the Great Depression, when it reopened as Tudor Arms. Extravagant parties and legendary jazz performances flooded the scene, but racial disagreements heightened in 1960, and the hotel surrendered its rooms to the surrounding Universities for dormitories.

The building was finally sold in 2007 to MRN Ltd, who ensured a proper revival with a $22 million renovation. Restored to its historic grandeur, the space now boasts classic-style ballrooms, cultured cuisine, a luxurious lounge, and refined accommodations once again.
