Our Hotel

Once the historic 1927 Buckeye Bank Building, our hotel pays homage to its history through preservation of the original architecture, such as the lobby's 44-foot soaring cathedral ceiling which is deeply coffered and features classically inspired motifs, such as rosettes, dentils and a Greek key design. Travelers can take a moment to relax and recharge in their apartment-style suite, boasting free Wi-Fi and fully equipped kitchens, then check out the popular attractions nearby such as The Ohio State University and Nationwide Arena. If our guests are attending a seminar at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, they can take care of some last-minute work tasks in the privacy of their room, or by using the services of our on-site business center. To give the brain the energy it needs beforehand, we invite out guests to stop by our complimentary breakfast buffet for both hearty and healthy options.
