The Cleveland Marriott Downtown is located in the heart of this vibrant city’s bustling financial district. It’s close to some of Cleveland’s most famous attractions, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, First Energy Stadium, Progressive Park, and the trendy Warehouse District. The hotel offers a full range of first-class amenities, including delicious dining, a fitness center, modern conference facilities, and spacious guestrooms.




Cleveland, Ohio is undergoing a renaissance that is transforming it into a vibrant cultural and business center worthy of attention. To those who still think of Cleveland in the “past tense,” they no doubt will be surprised by Cleveland’s rebirth, as it rises from the ashes of its 20th-century manufacturing roots. This new, 21st-century Cleveland is a championship city where grit meets sophistication, and where the possibilities are endless.


Not only is Cleveland home to the NBA champion Cavaliers, the Cleveland Indians, and the Cleveland Browns, it’s also home to the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, which is the city’s largest private employer. Dubbed the “Comeback City” by national news media, Cleveland also hosted the 2016 National Republican Convention and is hailed as an example of the successful revitalization of an aging industrial metropolis.




Cleveland Cavaliers

When the Cleveland Cavaliers brought the 2016 NBA championship title to Cleveland, it was as much a transformative event for this hard-working city as it was for its favorite son, “King” LeBron James. With the nation’s largest HD scoreboard, the Cavs’ home court is the modern, 20,500-seat Quicken Loans Arena, affectionately called “The Q.” When the King is in the house, you can bet that the “Cavs Scream Team,” the “Cavalier Girls,” and high flying “Moon Dog” will be putting on a show nearly as entertaining as LeBron’s on-court wizardry.


Rock And Roll Hall of Fame

Housed in a soaring glass and steel pyramid designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei (who also designed the striking glass pyramid in front of the Louvre), the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame boasts the largest collection of Rock and Roll musical artifacts and memorabilia. From Janis Joplin’s psychedelic Porsche to Michael Jackson’s sparkling glove, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame pays a tuneful tribute to this truly American art form. It’s fitting that this eclectic collection of Rock and Roll history should find a home in Cleveland since it was local Cleveland DJ Alan Freed who first coined the term “rock and roll.” He even organized the very first rock concert right here in Cleveland. And the town has been rockin’ and rollin’ ever since.


Cedar Point Amusement Park

With 17 over-the-top roller coasters, a waterslide-filled outdoor water park, a Caribbean-themed indoor water park, and five resorts, Cedar Point Amusement Park is guaranteed to get your heart pumping a little faster with every twist, turn, and scream. Located just an hour from downtown Cleveland, Cedar Point opened back in 1870; making it the second-oldest amusement park in the country. Today, Cedar Point, known as the “Roller Coaster Capital of the World,” is one of the Midwest’s most popular family destinations, featuring 72 rides and picturesque views of Lake Erie. Debuting in 2018 is “Steel Vengence,” the world’s first steel-on-wood hyper-hybrid roller coaster.


Greater Cleveland Aquarium

Located inside The Powerhouse, a late 19th-century brick electric power plant, the Greater Cleveland Aquarium boasts a 230,000-gallon, 175-foot long “Sea Tube” filled with sharks, stingrays, moray eels, and fish. The aquarium features more than 5,000 aquatic creatures of every conceivable size and shape; from exotic lionfish to seahorses.


Cleveland Museum of Art

Fresh off a $350 million renovation and expansion, the Cleveland Museum of Art is poised to take its place as one of the nation’s finest museums. The museum owns more than 45,000 pieces of art, housed in its original 1916 Neo-Classical building, which is connected to its newer wings by a stunning glass-covered atrium. The museum has also embraced technology, making for a truly immersive and interactive experience. A 40-foot touchscreen displays more than 4,000 works of art at your fingertips. Amazingly, admission to the museum’s permanent collection is free.

Please join us for the Mid-Year Regional Gaming Regulators Seminar July 12th in Cleveland. We look forward to seeing you there.
