Kent, OH – Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center, conveniently located near the heart of Kent State University campus, today announced a partnership with Stash Hotel Rewards, the largest loyalty program for independent hotels in the United States. As a result of the partnership, travelers can now earn and redeem Stash points at Kent State University Hotel. The partnership also marks the 80th independent, college-town hotel to join Stash and reward families and alumni for their travel back to campus.
“We see tremendous value in being part of the Stash program,” said Kent State Hotel General Manager Mike Riccio. “Our Kent State alumni community will appreciate the opportunity to earn points for their frequent trips back to campus—and it will keep our property top-of-mind each and every time they visit.”
Located in the center of revitalized downtown, Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center opened in the summer of 2013 as part of the city of Kent’s $100M redevelopment project. It features boutique-style guest rooms and suites, 5,000 square feet of versatile meeting space, an on-site restaurant and lounge with available room service and an indoor pool and spa. The proximity to campus makes this boutique hotel the perfect choice for alumni, visiting faculty, and incoming students and parents.
“Kent State University Hotel provides a contemporary hotel experience with campus spirit,” said Jeff Low, Founder and CEO of Stash. "You can celebrate after the Big Game with fellow fans in the Lounge, and even the guest rooms are Kent State-themed gold and blue."
