Hotel Suggestions

Any hotel suggestions? The wife and kids and I will be attending the New Years Eve game. Since my sister no longer lives in Columbus, my free place to stay is no more. I would like a place that is fairly close to the Arena, but not overly expensive.

Most hotels on New Years Eve that are fairly close to the arena will be overly expensive. In fact, you probably have to buy some sort of goofy New Year's Eve package in order to get a room. I know the Hyatt Regency has a big blowout and it's usually booked solid - I would guess most other hotels are in the same boat.

I like the Hampton Inn Suites in the Short North. Of course the Hyatt and the Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza(where most visiting teams stay) are more expensive options.

I dont know where your sister lives, but I wouldnt stay downtown for new years it will be to much money.

Id look towards Dublin/Hillard/Worthington Areas pretty easy to get around from those areas and plenty of hotels. I would book soon though.

There's a Red Roof Inn and a Drury Inn within a 10 minute walk, over by the Convention Center/Hyatt. Neither should have any big time parties like the Hyatt. There's also another hotel (I think a Hampton Inn) across High Street from the Conv. Center.

How about Grove City? Is that a decent part of town? I don't mind a short drive. I guess I was hoping for a place in the city, so I wouldn't have to worry about parking, but I will drive.

Grove City wouldnt be bad, there is alot of places down town. I just think your going to end up paying alot around New Years.

There's also the doubletree across from city hall that should be reasonable. Inexpensive, fairly close to the arena, but probably not packed on new years eve.

Of course, I've never stayed there ... so I can't vouch for them. We put all our visitors up at one of the Hyatts or the Westin Great Southern.

There's a Holiday Inn in Pickerington that's about 15 minutes from Nationwide. Far enough away that it won't be crazy or completely booked, but still pretty close and in a nice town.

I think I will just book a room at the above mentioned Red Roof Inn or Drury Inn. The price isn't really bad. By the time I find something 15 minutes away, it will be about the same price after gas, and parking.

Thanks for the suggestions.

The Drury Inn accross the street from the Crown Plaza...it's reasonable (around $90) and you don't need to drive....a good idea on the 31st.

Great info, Robert - but any particular reason you're quoting my post?
