An Extraordinary Hotel
Reviewed 3 days ago

The Kent State Hotel and Conference center is always our choice when we are on business in Kent or in the area for vacation or visiting friends. The rooms are immaculate, spacious and well designed for either business or pleasure. The hotel's bar and restaurant are excellent to include complementary continental breakfasts and Happy Hour specials daily. The improved WiFi is flawless. The hotel staff is extremely professional from the front desk staff to housekeeping. You will not be disappointed.

Exceptional Staff!

After a very long and frustrating day of re-routed and delayed flights, we were exhausted upon arrival. Ken, at the front desk was so welcoming and helpful & it really helped shift our w/e visit to an extremely positive one! All of the staff were fantastic! Would certainly recommend this hotel!

Fun for alumni
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My boyfriend and I stayed here while visiting my sister. We both also went to Kent so we wanted to see what it was like. One weird thing when we noticed was that the front desk person was no where to be found when we came in. We didn't have to wait long but it was a bit odd that no one was there. We liked the room though and there are a lot of KSU touches which was cute. It's obviously a great location and really impossible to get within walking distance to downtown from anywhere else. I would recommend it to visitors, especially alumni. I wonder if they ever do any kind of alumni discount, that would be cool!
