    Kent State Hotel is everything we could have hoped for!

    We are so pleased with our experience with Mary and the Kent State Hotel and Conference Center team for our wedding day. The venue is modern and absolutely beautiful, and was very spacious for our 180 guests for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The hotel offers a variety of wedding packages based on your wants and needs, and each was able to be modified to fit any of our requests. Having our wedding hosted by a hotel created such an easy flow for our guests, and the rooms there are just beautiful. The planning process was smooth as Mary coordinated with many of our outside vendors leading up to the wedding. On our wedding day, every detail was taken care of for us. The team provided all of the set up and tear down with our vendors exactly how we imagined it, which truly put us at ease, and allowed us to really enjoy our special day. The food was great, and we received such kind feedback from our guests on the entire experience. We highly recommend the Kent State Hotel and Conference Center for your wedding day.

    The KSU Hotel and Conference Center hosted our daughters 16th birthday party. It was a fabulous event. It was a themed 1920's party. The decorations were spot on. The food was terrific, the service was wonderful. From the music, video, dancing, and even a awesome hot coco bar that was set up, they could not have done a better job making her feel special. She has a severe allergy to certain foods and the Chef and staff took great care in making everything safe for her. We felt so cared for. All of her friends raved about the party. We will be back for the next 16th birthday party shortly approaching our next daughter.

    We are extremely pleased with our entire experience with Sage Culley and the Kent State Hotel and Conference Center. We recently were married and our wedding reception was at the hotel. From the first contact with Sage to the last detail on our wedding night, the care and hard work that was put forth was outstanding! Our guests loved the food & drinks, the personal touches the staff helped us put together and the overall look and feel of the night. It was perfect and we wouldn't have changed a thing!
