The Akron Hotel Made from Old Oatmeal Silos is Closing

Posted By on Mon, Jul 1, 2013 at 6:42 AM


Akron's Quaker Square Inn has met its soggy end. The hotel made from 36 old Quaker Oats grain silos is closing.

While employing the space for public lodging is out, using it for student housing is, er, inn.

The University of Akron bought the complex in 2007 and has been housing students in some of the silo rooms ever since. This year the university will increase the student presence in the building.

Since the Quaker Square was built as an oat factory in 1932, the space has been converted into a dining, shopping, and entertainment plaza, and, most recently, the hotel.
