Get ready for an influx of hotel space in Columbus. Experience Columbus reports that Hilton will build a new 22-story, 470-room tower near its existing Hilton Columbus Downtown hotel. Guest rooms at the property will increase to 1,002 with the expansion, scheduled for completion in 2021.
In addition, five more hotels are expected to open in Columbus in the next two years, including a 167-room Canopy by Hilton and a 118-room Moxy, both of which are slated to debut in 2019. In August, Columbus will host the prestigious American Society of Association Executives annual meeting.
