Signs Hung for Kent State Hotel

94-room hotel with 300-seat conference center set to open in June

Another sign of progress, literally, for downtown Kent's redevelopment appeared Friday as workers hung the exterior signs for the new Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center.

Lawrence Carter, the asset manager of the Kent State Hotel for the Kent State Foundation, shared these photos of the signs as they were installed Friday afternoon.

Carter said there's already been a tremendous amount of interest in booking rooms in the 94-room hotel, but he expects that will increase as the signs are installed.

"Once they see the signs go up that's when people really start calling," Carter said.

The hotel, which includes a 300-seat conference center, also will feature a 20-seat lounge and bar area and a 50-seat restaurant all on the first floor.
