Cleveland Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant and the team’s head of hotel and guest services, Mike Stearns, have made a name for themselves at the arena and arena itself, as well as in sports-specific areas like the Cleveland Clinic and Cleveland Clinic Cleveland Clinic.
The team has already opened two additional suites at Quicken Loans Arena.
Grant told Bleacher Sports, “We’re just going to be looking to add some quality to the hotel experience, especially with the new Cavs basketball program, that is what they’re looking to do.”
The team recently opened the Quicken Suite in the Cleveland Park area, a suite at the Cleveland Center, and the Cleveland Suite in Northeast Cleveland.
In addition, Grant has recently added a new lounge and restaurant at the QuikTrip Center.
The Quicken suite at Quik Trip Center in Cleveland, Ohio, is one of the first of its kind in the country.
Cleveland’s two newest luxury suites at the team arena are located just east of the Quicksilver Center and west of the arena.
This is the first suite at a major league sports facility for the Cavaliers.
Cleveland was the first team to open a new luxury suite at its Quicken suites in early May, when the team opened its first-ever Cleveland Sports Club at Quickslime Center in late March.
The suite opens at approximately 11:30 p.m. and can be accessed from both the arena floor and the adjacent hotel lobby.
Grant says he’s excited to see what the team does with the suite at Cleveland’s new facility.
“We’ve got some really talented people that we’ve got going in there, so we’re really looking forward to building on what we have,” he said.
Cleveland will also be the first city in the U.S. to offer luxury suites in the same suite on the same day it opens, which is a great first step for the team, and for Clevelanders as well.
The Cavaliers have already opened three other suites at their Quicken facilities: The Cleveland Sports Suite in Akron, the Quickster Suite in Cleveland Heights, and a Quik Lounge Suite in Northwest Cleveland.
The Cavs’ other luxury suites, the Cleveland Sports Lounge Suite and the Quaker Lounge Suite, are located at Quick’s Sports Bar and Grill in Northeast Akron and the Marriott Marquis in Northeast Ohio.
Both of these suites are designed with the hotel’s unique design philosophy, according to Grant.
“The goal of our suite design is to create a place for guests to go and relax and enjoy a nice breakfast, a nice afternoon nap, and to be in the moment with a friend or a family member,” Grant said.
