As a Kent graduate back visiting, I was ecstatic to find a hotel located right downtown, and the overall transformation of the area in the central city is truly remarkable. After taking in a basketball game and then hitting some haunts within short walking distance - Ray's, the Venice, the Loft, and an array of new bars and restaurants -... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights because I attended Kent State's fall graduation. I found the hotel to be very good. I really liked the location and there were a lot of good restaurants within walking distance. The front desk staff was also very helpful and check in/out was smooth with no problems. The only reasons I can't... More

This hotel hadn't long opened when I visited so I cant be too hard on them, but for the price and the standard they are aiming for it was below par.

I was here in September for a three day meeting, Friday to Sunday. The rooms were well appointed and very comfortable. The conference rooms worked well, and what didn't was quickly addressed by the staff. Food and drink was excellent. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful.

The Hotel/Conf. Ctr. is in a great location and you can walk to several decent restaraunts and shops. The hotel staff were fine, although I made a quick catch of having been given the bar tab for another group instead of mine, a $20+ mistake. And the bar was out of the alcohol that all three of us in the... More
