This former hotel is now closed permanently, as owner The University of Akron has converted the former hospitality facility into university student dormatory rooms. It no longer accepts reservations and no longer offers rooms.

Everything was great. Grain silos made into rooms. Refrigerator & Microwave. Clean room & polite front desk. Steam engines that used to work at Quaker Oats are still there on display. The Quaker Square Inn is both historic and unique...

This is our favorite hotel anywhere! We stay just about every time we're in the area. The building is an old grain silo remade into a hotel, and the rooms are round! There are also gorgeous old murals in the lobby and the elevator hallways, giving the place a palpable sense of history. The price isn't bad for a hotel... More

We stayed here overnight for business trip and the hotel was very convenient to downtown Akron. It was a very interesting hotel, loved the history of it. There were some modern murals in the lobby nicely mixed with the historical pieces. It was cool to see the silo structure still there and very evident in the hallways. The trains and... More

I grew up in Akron and was there when this hotel was renovated into the Quaker Square Hilton which at the time was an achetectual feat. The hotel is renovated silos so the rooms are round. The lobby still looks beautiful and unique. When this was designed in the 80's it was so unique that it seems timeless. The whole... More

We had tickets to a show at the Akron Civic Theatre and decided to stay overnight at the Quaker Square Inn. This hotel is very unique and charming. It is located within walking distance of the theatre which was perfect for us. The room rate was reasonable and included parking and a hot breakfast the next morning. There is a... More

I believe the last time we stayed at Quaker Square the Inn was part of the Hilton chain. The rooms have been updated since then. Rooms are nicely appointed and are very comfortable. The unique aspects of the Inn make it worth a visit for anyone. Mid-week, mid-winter night life was pretty nonexistent - even the hotel restaurant closed at... More

The Luxurious Quaker Inn is a wonderful place to stay. It is great for business or a family vacation. The rooms are round because grain silo's are round. The furnishings are first class and the hotel restaurants are fantastic with delicious food. You will absolutely enjoy a stay in this hotel when you are in the Akron / Canton Ohio... More
