Hampton Inn & Suites, Downtown Columbus
Project History & Description
The hotel was originally part of an existing one hundred year old warehouse building located in the historic Short North area of downtown Columbus, Ohio. In 1998, the management team at Indus saw the site as an ideal location for a hotel. It would be their first major project choosing The Hampton Inn & Suites brand by Hilton as the brand.
The challenging $20 million project district presented a central problem: how to convert a 107-year-old building into a modern hotel without losing the historic feel of the building. The solution was to remove the facade, build a new hotel and then replace the facade. This innovative approach involved Masonry contractors removing 26,000 bricks, numbered and photographed them, and reassembled the facade in 10 weeks. The project successfully met with the Historic Resources Commission approval.
In operation since 2000, the Hampton Inn is a 179-room, 168,000 square-foot hotel, with restaurants, underground parking, a second-floor pool, conference center, and five presidential suites with sweeping views.
The building is located directly across from the Greater Columbus Convention Center and in close proximity to major downtown business, the Nationwide Arena, prime shopping, entertainment, restaurants and the popular Short North area. It is also in close proximity to The Ohio State University.
