Located within walking distance of Nationwide Arena and the trendy Arena District, Hyatt Regency Columbus redefines the modern hotel experience. Connected to the Greater Columbus Convention Center and steps to the Short North Arts District, ours is the hotel in which to meet and play in downtown Columbus.



To say that the Columbus Region is well situated is an understatement. Located within a one-day drive or a one-hour flight of nearly half the population of the U.S. and Canada, the Columbus Region is perfectly positioned to connect you and your business with its most important resources.

Centrally located in Ohio with a diverse mix of air carriers, John Glenn Columbus International Airport is the airport of choice for millions of passengers each year. The airport is operated by the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, which also oversees the operation of cargo-dedicated Rickenbacker International Airport and general aviation airport Bolton Field.

You'll also find that travel within the City is a breeze. Whether you're biking, driving or taking public transit, our roadways and transportation systems are safe, modern and well maintained.
