CLEVELAND -- The Westin hotel in downtown Cleveland is closed today as it had planned an "emergency power shutdown."

They switched guests to another hotel for the day. They plan on reopening on Tuesday.

Westin corporate officials told WKYC "This is a proactive repair to our electrical system and it should be completed in a few hours during the slowest time of the day. We will be fully operational for normal business on Tuesday, ready to accommodate guests with reservations."

Before the shutdown, staff from the hotel sent an e-mail to customers who were booked for that evening:

"Due to an emergency power shut down on Monday September 1st we have secured a reservation for you at [another downtown hotel] for that evening. We will be paying your room, tax, and if needed, parking for that night. We are happy to accommodate you for all other dates of your stay here at the Westin Cleveland Downtown and look forward to your stay."
