Hotels in Downtown Columbus
Downtown Columbus has more than 5,000 hotel rooms, 2,700 of which are connected or adjacent to the Greater Columbus Convention Center. The diverse selection of brands includes offerings for all price points and groups of any size. All properties in the downtown core are easily accessible on foot, and you can get from the airport to these hotels via taxi or rideshare.
The newest development in the downtown Columbus hotel scene is the fall 2022 expansion of the Hilton Columbus Downtown. The largest hotel in Ohio upon completion, the expansion bumps the Hilton’s room total up to 1,000, offering robust meetings space and plenty of new lodging opportunities for visitors. Connected to the Greater Columbus Convention Center via skybridge, the vibrant and energetic new space includes a range of dining options for locals and visitors alike to enjoy — with a general focus on local farming partners and visions helmed by renowned chef Sebastian La Rocca, the expansion’s food and beverage concepts include a FYR (a live-fire restaurant), Spark (the new tower’s lobby bar), and the tallest rooftop bar in Columbus, Stories on High, which clocks in at 28 stories above High Street. Visitors to the new tower can also peruse original art from central Ohio artists.
