On behalf of Michigan State University, the Culinary Services department announces that Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center will reopen Monday, April 19, with reduced capacity and enhanced cleaning and safety measures in place.
Since March 2020, the hotel and conference center has been temporarily closed to the public. However, the hotel served as a quarantine and isolation unit on campus to help keep MSU students safe. Quarantine and isolation housing relocated to Hubbard Hall in early April. The facility will undergo professional cleaning before reopening.
“This past year has been a challenge for the MSU community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited to reopen, and our dedicated team remains committed to keeping our guests and employees safe,” said Rebecca Selesky, executive director of MSU Culinary Services. “For more than 70 years, the Kellogg Center has welcomed guests to campus. Our team looks forward to serving guests again as we begin accommodating overnight stays, meetings, special events and providing food service.”
SAFETY AND CLEAN PLEDGE
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, guests can expect to see additional safety measures, including enhanced cleaning in guest rooms, public spaces and the restaurant. Team members will be disinfecting all high-touch surfaces, providing hand sanitizer stations in all public spaces, implementing traffic flow measures and physical distancing reminders outlined in the MSU and Division of Residential and Hospitality Services preventative measures.
