US-based Optima Ventures and Sage Hospitality have partnered to purchase the Crowne Plaza Cleveland City Centre hotel in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, US, and convert the property into a 481-room Westin.

The hotel will shut down in mid-November and the companies will invest $64m in remodelling all guestrooms, adding 25,000ft² of meeting and public space, improving the hotel’s exterior and installing energy-efficient windows.

The new Westin Cleveland hotel will feature a business centre, a fitness centre and a spa.

The hotel will reopen in July 2013.
