Destination of the Day: Quaker Square Inn at The University of Akron, Akron, OH

Destination 2 in the series "Mint on the Pillow"


How many times can you say you slept in a grain silo?  Since I would not recommend an active silo the Quaker Square Inn might be the next best thing.  The complex, now on the National Register of Historic Places, was originally a Quaker Oats mill until 1970 and then renovated into a hotel in 1980.  Now owned by University of Akron part of the complex is student housing with the long term plan to switch to all student housing when addition hotels are built in the downtown district.   The location is perfect for the casual traveler with several attractions within walking distance.
