(CLEVELAND, October 29, 2009) – The Lexington Lansing Hotel celebrated its grand opening as a Lexington brand hotel last month in style and with flair.

Over 300 attendees were given a tour of the newly renovated hotel.
The hotel has completed extensive renovations to the common areas, landscaping, front entrance, lobby and elevators. The $1.5 million capital improvement project provided numerous upgrades including wireless capabilities, premium bedding, and a beautiful new main lobby and welcome desk.

By extensively renovating our indoor and outdoor spaces we hope to communicate to our guests that we are here for the long term and will continue to provide exceptional personal service.
