Our Guide To Hotels In Columbus Ohio

You’re sitting on a riverfront patio, sipping a fine wine. Your ear detects a rumble in the distance—one that could only be the unanimous cheer of a gaggle of boisterous Buckeyes fans. Then, suddenly, a monarch butterfly dances through the air, landing on the edge of your table. He must have escaped from the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and decided to flutter through the fresh evening air. Welcome to Columbus, Ohio's thriving capital, a destination booming with optimism.

Before you can enmesh yourself with the college crowd and investigate the cobblestone streets of the German Village, you’ll need a place to stay. Book one of the best Columbus hotels on Travelocity today, and you’ve made your first savvy travel move. We like to call it wandering wisely.

Ohio State University is the pulse of Columbus, imbuing the heart of the community with an energy that’s impossible to ignore. You’ll find students, teachers, and fans all over the city, ready to tell you why they love being a Buckeye. No matter where you turn, flashes of red, white, and black meet the eye. Grab a room at one of the hotels in Columbus near campus, and you’re never more than a beer pong’s throw away from the heart of campus.

  • Hilton Columbus Downtown: Just 2 miles from campus, the Hilton Columbus Downtown is an upscale haven for relaxation. Take a dip in your private soaking tub, or swim a few laps in the indoor pool all year round. Want to take a cycle around campus? You can rent a bike from the hotel and explore OSU at your leisure.
  • The Blackwell Inn and Pfahl Conference Center: You can’t get closer to the heart of Buckeye country than this. The Blackwell Inn is the only hotel on the Ohio State University campus. When you stay here, you’ll also be close to downtown Columbus. Don’t want to venture out to get your buzz? Luckily the hotel has a weeknight happy hour where you can unwind after a day of exploration within just a few steps of your private accomodation.

Where to Stay in Columbus for a Conference

Columbus isn’t just home to a hopping university and bounty of Buckeye pride; major events and conventions flock to the city each year. Stay in one of the Columbus hotel rooms near the bustling convention center, and you’ll be to and from your exhibition hall faster than you can sing “Hang on Sloopy” with a fellow OSU fan.

  • Red Roof PLUS+ Columbus Downtown - Convention Center: Located just across the street from the event center, this is one of the coziest places to rest in between meetings and lectures. When it comes to cheap hotels in Columbus, Red Roof PLUS+ is among the most modern. It’s also less than a mile from the Ohio Theater and within walking distance of downtown restaurants.

Can’t-Miss Columbus

It may be the university or an annual conference that lures you to Columbus, but you may as well check out some of the impressive attractions while you’re here. Spend an afternoon meandering through the Franklin Park Conservatory and an evening at the Wexner Center for the Arts. If you need a little retail therapy, get proper counsel at Easton Town Center. Afterward, get ready for some hands-on hijinks at the COSI, a science museum and planetarium where learners of all ages can have an out-of-this-world experience.

Become a Buckeye, celebrate Oktoberfest in the German Village, or just enjoy a wholesome vacation in the heartland. You can’t go wrong when you go on vacation in Columbus. Book your hotel now and pack your bags. Then, all that’s left to do is buy an OSU sweatshirt at the airport so you’ll fit right in. Wander wisely, friend.
