Hilton Columbus Downtown, owned by the Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority (FCCFA) and managed by Hilton Management Services, broke ground on a 28-story tower to create the first 1,000-room convention hotel in Columbus. Together with the existing Hilton, the hotel will offer 75,000 square feet of meeting space, and will be Ohio’s largest hotel when it opens in 2022.
“The addition of the tower to the Hilton Columbus Downtown will allow Columbus to attract new meetings and events business,” said Don Brown, the FCCFA’s executive director. “With the additional hotel inventory, we’ll be able to host high-profile, national events that will continue to highlight Columbus as a top destination.”
Designed by the architectural firm of Cooper Carry, with interior design by Jeffrey Beers International, Hilton Columbus Downtown’s tower will be 28 stories including 463 guest rooms and 47,000 square feet of meeting space.
