Stayed at the KSU hotel for business. The hotel is very clean, great rooms and very modern. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel restaurant needs a lot of improvement which is the main reason I did not rate this property as a 5.

Beware of this hotel! The manager, Theresa , will change your hotel room type if you book through a third party site like Travelocity. We were at the hotel at 11 a.m. and even though there were double beds not even cleaned yet, the rep. stated that they will not change it. We contacted Travelocity and they changed their tune...

We have lived in Kent for more than 40 years and are about to leave to begin our retirement adventure. We decided to spend our last night in Kent in this hotel. Everything was perfect. We loved the salt water pool and the minimalistic style of the hotel. Rooms are spacious and ultra clean. Location downtown is a real perk.... More

The hotel is very close to Kent State campus if that is the reason for your visit. The hotel was great for viewing fireworks on... More

Hotel very modern and nicely decorated. Right in the heart of town. Walked to every where as the car stayed in the parking garage. Super close to kent University. Totally have redone the downtowns area if kent and this hotel fits perfectly with the redesign.

Staying here while attending daughter's new student orientation. Perfect location, spacious, comfortable rooms, friendly, knowledgeable staff. They noted we were now KSU parents and applied a discount without even being asked. Very clean, new feel.

This was our second stay at the hotel, and we enjoyed it very much. The hotel is located in the heart of renewed downtown Kent, and also within walking distance to the university. The rooms are decorated in a very modern style, and we found them very comfortable. The continental breakfast included in the price was very good, but guests... More

My wife and I spent two nights here for a wedding. Everyone on staff was very helpful. Our room was pleasant, though it was next to the vending machine room, which meant that during the night we were bothered by a constant buzz/hum from the ice machine. Also the view was ok, but blocked on the side. My only other... More
