A huge boom in hospitality and a citywide initiative to host national-level conventions inspired the expansion of the Hilton Columbus Convention Center Hotel.
Meyers+Associates is working in partnership with a team of local and national architects, designers and engineers on the expansion that will act as a contemporary counterpart to the existing Hilton and a companion to the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
Located across the street from the existing Hilton, it will include an additional 463 rooms and 53,000 square feet of meeting space to support the growing demand for the Convention Center. The completed building will offer an energetic and signature destination for both visitors and residents of Central Ohio.
Alongside the addition of rooms will be multiple signature food and beverage destinations, including a two-story restaurant and a rooftop bar and lounge on the building’s top floor. The exterior facade design is a composition of floor-to-floor curtain wall and architectural precast concrete.
Multiple bridges and points of connectivity will join the buildings together. This highly collaborative project has also involved multiple city regulatory processes, including a series of reviews with the Downtown Commission.
