You know you’ve hit upon a romantic Christmas city when its major sky-scraping hotel is lit in red and green. That’s Hotel LeVeque, the luxe art deco hotel in the heart of downtown, offering a holiday romance package that includes turndown service with romantic starlight splashed across your ceiling. During the day, shop hand-in-hand along the Made in Cbus Trail, with more than a dozen local makers offering exquisite artisan goods. Come evening, take in the dazzling lights of the Grand Illumination along the Scioto Mile; plus the Festival of Lights at Columbus Commons (with music and free hot chocolate offered on Fridays). A perfectly romantic day ends back at Hotel LeVeque with seasonal cocktails for two (and dinner, if you wish) at the Keep brasserie, done up in seductive, speakeasy-style.
