Olympia Hotel Management (OHM) has announced the addition of the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center in Kent, Ohio, to its third-party portfolio.
The hotel is centrally located in the city, offering accommodations, dining and meeting facilities adjacent to the Kent State University campus. Kent State has more than 36,000 students, and the property is placed to serve both the college and the community. Owned by the Kent State University Foundation, the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center was designed to welcome faculty, alumni, students and their families, as well as visitors to Kent. The hotel is within walking distance to downtown Kent’s bars, restaurants, shops and galleries, as well as the campus itself.
The Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center has 94 guestrooms, each one with a workspace with an iPad/iPhone docking station, a refrigerator, microwave and a coffeemaker. The hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi with PrinterOn for Wireless Printing from laptops, iPads and smartphones.
The hotel’s restaurant and bar, Nineteen10, was named for the year the university was founded. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner under executive chef Steve Meister and can be booked for private parties. Hotel facilities include a pool, a gym and 5,000 square feet of event space with four meeting rooms. On-site catering choices for events include kosher and vegetarian menus.
OHM was selected by the Kent State University Foundation, it says, for its track record with independent, campus-based hotels. OHM currently manages a portfolio of campus properties, including The Alfond Inn at Rollins College, The Hotel at Oberlin and The Inn at Swarthmore.
Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center is located 17 miles from Akron-Canton Airport and 41 miles from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
