BOSTON, MA  (July 6, 2016) - - - CHMWarnick (“CHMW”), the leading hotel asset management and business advisory services company, today announced that it has been selected by Cuyahoga County to asset manage the 600-room Hilton Cleveland Downtown.

 The $272 million publicly-funded hotel, which opened June 1, 2016, is connected to the First Merit Convention Center, the Global Center for Health Innovation, and Mall B, creating a world-class meetings destination.

"With the addition of the Hilton Cleveland Downtown, CHMW’s 50-plus property asset management portfolio now includes a total of 12 convention center headquarter hotels, with more than 12,000 rooms and one million-plus square feet of meeting space, providing us with unparalleled experience in big-box, group-oriented hotels," said Chad Crandell, managing director and CEO of CHMW.

 "We believe CHMW is now the largest asset manager within this segment. We have asset management responsibility for the single largest hotel in each of approximately half of the U.S. major metropolitan markets, including such cities as Anaheim, Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Phoenix and Washington, D.C., among others.

“Working with virtually all of the major brands, including Marriott, Starwood, Hyatt and Hilton, no single firm has our experience in representing the interests of public and private clients in the planning, pre-opening and operational oversight of convention center hotels."

Dever, director of public works for Cuyahoga County. “They were a natural choice to represent the County’s interests to ensure we achieve our business goals.”

The Hilton Cleveland Downtown will offer 46,000 sq. ft. of meeting space with a seamless connection to the 395,000 sq. ft. of function space at the adjoining Convention Center.  Hotel amenities include a full-service business center, indoor pool, fitness center and state-of-the-art guest rooms.
