The Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center is the preferred hotel and conference Center for Kent State.  University departments that book rooms can earn points for free hotel stays for their guests through the Stash Hotel Rewards Program - the nation's largest point-based loyalty program for independent hotels. 

Located in downtown Kent, just steps away from the heart of the city's shopping and dining districts, the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center offers travelers 94 boutique-style guest rooms, an on-site restaurant and lounge, and indoor pool and workout facility, a 24-hour business center and 5,000 square feet of event space with a 10-seat executive boardroom.

In addition to its proximity to the Kent Campus, the selection was based upon the value and various amenities provided by the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center.  Kent State University requires the use of this facility for your traveling needs whenever it can provide suitable accommodations.
