Cleveland, with a population of four hundred and sixty one thousand, three hundred and twenty four residents, is the second largest city in the state of Ohio, second to the capital city, Columbus. Cleveland ranks thirty fifth in the United States in terms of population. In 1796 Cleveland was named after the superintendent of a surveying group. His name was Gen Moses Cleaveland. Three decades later the "a" in Cleaveland was cut out so as to accommodate a newspaper masthead.

In the early nineteenth century settlement in the city seemed non existence an the contributing factors were the swamps that were around the city and the weathers terrible winters didn't help much. The city benefited greatly from the conclusion of the Ohio and Erie Canal in 1832. Cleveland immediately became the link between the great Lakes and the Ohio River. More especially when the railroad pushed into the city. In the early twentieth century, Cincinnati was home to several steel companies and a major manufacturing hub.

Cincinnati was the largest city in the United States in the early part of the twentieth century. Philanthropist, John D. Rockefella made his money in the city. John owned the company Standard Oil, which was the once the largest oil refining company in the world. After the second world war Cleveland's industries started deteriorating. Cleveland had a lot of Racial related problems, from the Hough and Glenville Riots in 1965, 1968, respectively, To the Misunderstandings it had with both the local banks and electric provider, who it was later discovered were trying to force the city to sell Cleveland's Public Power. That unrest led to the city entering default, becoming the first big city in the United States to do so after the Great Depression. The city has marginally begun to recover.

The downtown area seems to be the strongest area of growth. This is the area where Jacobs Field (Home of the Cleveland Indians) and Gund Arena (Home of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Cleveland Barons) are based. Also the Rock and Roll Hall of fame is based in the Downtown area of Cleveland.

Here are a few demographics on the city of Cleveland; Living in the city are 111,904 families. 50.99% of the population are African American, 41.49% are White, 7.26% are Hispanic or Latino, 0.30% are Native American and 0.04% Pacific Islander. The lodges, hotels and Inns in the city are some of the best in the state. Here are a few of those accommodating facilities; Comfort Inn Downtown, Embassy Suites Downtown, Bridgestreet National Terminal, Glidden House the Inn at University Circle, Days Inn Airport, Hilton South, Holiday Inn Express Downtown, Hilton Garden Inn Airport, Hyatt Regency at the Arcade, Renaissance Hotel, The Ritz-Carlton and Sheraton Hotel City Centre. Cleveland has three of the four major United States sports franchises; Cleveland Browns (National Football League), Cleveland Indians (Major League Baseball) and the Cleveland Cavaliers (National Basketball Association). The other sports teams based in the city are; Cleveland Force (Major Indoor Soccer League) and the Cleveland Barons (American Hockey League).
