What you should know about Downtown Columbus

When can I find the best deals on Hotels in Downtown Columbus?

Downtown Columbus has gone through somewhat of a resurgence in recent years. Shaking off its past, it's quickly becoming the place to be seen. Top that with historic highlights, a spate of cultural attractions like the Columbus Museum of Art and the CoGo Bike Share, and you've got a mighty fine place to visit. Columbus' weather is famously changeable, but if you travel in fall you might be lucky enough to catch some of the last-minute sunshine before winter sets in, and many of the hotels drop their prices in an effort to attract those customers who visit the city at this time.

What are the Top Hotels in Downtown Columbus?

The Westin Columbus has been welcoming guests into its opulent surroundings since the late 19th century. It was once called "The Great Southern Hotel", perhaps a more fitting name for such a grandiose, landmark property. Alternatively, the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel has got a lot going for it. Try a taste of Ohio at the on-site farm-to-table restaurant, splash around in the rooftop pool, or sip on a handcrafted cocktail at The Bar 41. The Courtyard has far too many facilities to list here, but highlights include the whirlpool, gym, and indoor pool.

Where are the best areas for Hotels in Downtown Columbus?

Most of the hotels in the downtown area are clustered around East Broadway Street. You're well positioned if you choose a stay here, with the attractive 19th-century Ohio Statehouse, Columbus Museum of Art, and the Kelton House Museum and Garden just a few minutes away. Just across the Scioto River is the arty Franklinton District. While you're staying in one of the area's hotels, be sure to visit the 400 West Rich Street and Glass Axis art collectives. Science buffs can also swing by COSI science museum and research center, one of the country's most interesting scientific museums.

Some have been there since the golden years of travel and you can expect palatial marbled lobbies, Art Deco-style lighting, and plush leather chairs.

If you're lucky you may even have an indoor pool, and a smattering have spas with hot tubs and treatments.
