Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center

Modern comfort near campus

2 blocks from the Kent State campus, this classic brick building houses a boutique hotel with fresh, contemporary style. Huge windows let natural light into the lobby and public spaces. The onsite restaurant, NINETEEN10 Lounge, dishes up locally sourced comfort food with a twist, and the bartender behind the modernist square bar whips up classic cocktails from Whisky Sours to muddled Old Fashioneds.
