Workers braved frigid temperatures while installing windows at the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center on South DePeyster Street in downtown Kent. Work continues on the $16 million project, which will feature 94 rooms, 5,400 square feet of conference space and a bar and restaurant. The hotel is scheduled to open this summer. The project is part of the $110 million redevelopment of downtown Kent, which includes the Portage Area Transportation Authority's Kent Central Gateway facility, two phases of Acorn Alley retail, the Fairmount project, which includes retail and offices for the Davey Tree Expert Co. and Ametek, and revitalization of the old Kent Hotel.
E-Edition states KSU hotel gets windows! Great idea for a hotel that is open year round! Would get mighty cold in the winter without windows!
