Ribbon-cutting Ceremony Set for The Inn at Ohio Northern University
Ohio Northern University will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for The Inn at Ohio Northern University at 1 p.m., on Friday, Oct. 10. The newly constructed hotel is adjacent to the Freed Center for the Performing Arts.
Dr. Kendall L. Baker, president of Ohio Northern, will speak at the ceremony, which will open the doors to the new facility. Representatives of Charles Construction Services Inc., general contractor of The Inn, and the architectural firm of Miller Lecky will also be on hand.
"This is a momentous occasion for ONU and Ada," Baker said. "The Inn adds a new dimension to the village and ONU. Not only does it accommodate a major need in Ada, but it will enable the University to offer programming and opportunities that have not been possible before."
The hotel features 75 deluxe guestrooms with one king- or two queen-sized beds. One- and two-room suites also are available for guests. Specialty rooms have fireplaces and cathedral ceilings and rooms overlooking the garden courtyard fountain. Every room is furnished with 32-inch flat screen televisions and luxurious bedding and linens, as well as refrigerators, microwaves and high-speed Internet access (wired and wireless in each room).
In addition to the rooms, the hotel has more than 3,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, including a 14-seat executive boardroom. An exercise facility, (with the latest fitness equipment), an upscale restaurant and a pub are also part of the hotel.
