Are you planning a weekend visit to Columbus and surrounding areas and wondering how to pick the perfect place to stay from the incredibly long list of choices. I’m here to help. If you are looking for a hotel that is just outside the hustle and bustle of downtown, has free parking, and will make you feel welcomed and comfortable, plus has a bar look no further than the Marriott Columbus University Area Hotel.
Showcasing Columbus’ Fashion Industry
This newly remodeled and redesigned hotel had an incredible design team. As soon as you walk through the doors you’ll love the welcoming ambiance and that is just the lobby. Imagine that same feeling throughout the entire hotel. This will quickly become your go-to choice when visiting Columbus.
Did you know that Columbus is actually regarded as the third most fashion-forward city in the US. The Marriott Columbus University decided to celebrate this fact when they remodeled. Throughout the interior of the hotel, including guest rooms, you’ll find textures and patterns that are reminiscent of high-end clothing and jewelry.
The architectural elements were inspired by retail displays while the clean-lined furniture adds both comfort and intelligence. Even the color scheme was drawn from men’s suit colors, of course with hints of Ohio State University scarlet throughout. And then there are the details, like the metal accents and stitching, that will remind you of what you’d find on belts and bags.
All of this attention to detail pays off in the guest rooms. You’ll be welcomed into your relaxing space by wood floors, modern furniture, a huge flat screen smart TV, and built-ins with ample space for all your luggage. Floor to ceiling windows allow for plenty of natural light.
MODA Bar & Restaurant at the Marriott Columbus
The incredible attention to detail doesn’t stop with customer service and interior design. The Marriott extends that attention to their food service options. The MODA Restaurant and Bar, located in the lobby of the hotel, stays true to the hotel’s theme. MODA literally means “fashion.” You’ll find the same kind of stunning design in the restaurant that you’ll be used to seeing everywhere else within the hotel. You’ll also love the “tailored” food and specialty cocktails. Of course, room service and a concierge lounge (one of the best in the Marriott family) is available.
When you arrive at Marriott Columbus University, you may notice its counterpart, the Residence Inn. They literally share the same building. Here’s a little bonus secret for you: If you don’t have concierge lounge status head over to the Residence Inn in the morning for free breakfast!
Amenities You Expect & More
The Marriott has all the expected amenities in stellar form, including a pristine pool and state of the art fitness center. The lobby is an amenity in itself with ample seating for chatting with your gal pals or curling up with a good book and a glass of wine. They also boast over 11,000 square feet designated for meeting and event space.
The Perfect Location
Whether you’re in the area for an event at OSU, a visit to the Columbus Zoo, a day full of work meetings, or a romantic getaway with your special person, Marriott Columbus University Area Hotel is your place to stay.
