CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Marriott signed off just yesterday on what will be their latest autograph collection property.
“We are just completely on edge today. It’s, the team is excited they’re motivated. There’s a lot of work ahead of us in a very short amount of time but we can’t wait to bring the Metropolitan Hotel at the Nine to Cleveland by September 1,” says Keith Halfmann of Geis Construction.
There are subtle features in the rooms that draw on Cleveland history. The headboards are a replica of the entrance into the old Ameritrust building.
There will be 156 rooms and 104 luxury apartments.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
