Red Cedar Hotels opened two properties a stone’s throw from Michigan State University (MSU). They include the 139-room Hyatt House Lansing East/University Area, with kitchenettes and dining areas in apartment-like rooms and complimentary breakfast, and the AC Hotel Lansing University Area, a full-service European-inspired Marriott with 156 rooms and 5,000 square feet of function space that can accommodate 250 participants. Dual Director of Sales Corri Harvey says the hotels are fresh builds, part of the Red Cedar Development, which consists of student housing, senior living, restaurants, and retail.

Also on the AC Hotel property, Toscana Kitchen and Wine Market is a Tuscan steakhouse with a self-serve wine wall and a sommelier available to assist patrons, plus charcuterie boards, tasting plates, and an Italian marketplace featuring gourmet ingredients and specialty imported products. AC Lounge offers handcrafted cocktails, local microbrews, and tapas. Guests have walkable access to restaurants, retail, and public park space, plus the Lansing River Trail and MSU campus.
