Admit it: you didn’t think of Ohio’s capital as being synonymous with overnight luxury. It’s ok – neither did we. But, once you experience the spacious suites, high-end spa services and contemporary on-pulse dining that are on offer at these hotels, you’ll be delighted to readjust your preconceptions. So, what are you waiting for? Free yourself from modest expectations, and embrace the lavish side of the Buckeye State at these luxury hotels in Columbus, now bookable with Culture Trip.

With nearly every room offering Scioto River views, Hotel LeVeque is easily one of the best luxury hotels in Columbus. You’ll have ample room to stretch your legs in the large one-bedroom suite, and you won’t have a problem stretching your belt with the burgers, oysters and colorful cocktails at the Keep. And, for when you’ve indulged to your upper limits, stave off the calorie coma with a stroll through Battelle Riverfront Park, only two blocks away.

Hilton Columbus Downtown, for artful interiors

Art lovers will have plenty to admire at the Downtown Hilton. The views from the executive-floor suites alone showcase the Short North Arts District in dramatic fashion, but it’s the collection of more than 200 locally produced works positioned throughout the hotel that gives you a more detailed look at this city’s vision. Stroll the hallways as if you’re in a gallery, stopping only for drinks at the Gallerie Bar – where you can drink in the work of graphical maestro Dominic Damien.

Le Méridien Columbus, The Joseph, for spa-spangled luxury

When it comes to top luxury hotels in Columbus, we can’t not include the Le Méridien – which stands out from the crowd with its dreamy spa suites. Natural elements like marble and stone will relax your eyes as the warmth of the rain shower washes over you. This private oasis is yours and yours alone, except for the moments when a massage, facial and body scrub put every one of your muscles at ease.

The Westin Great Southern Columbus, for beer and breakfast in bed

Let your cup runneth over in Columbus’ brewery district when you barrel into the Presidential Suite at the Westin. This spacious, elegant suite is ideal for entertaining; whether that be a group of friends in the living space or a special someone in the bathtub with spa jets. The best beer in Discovery City is right outside, so there’s no need for a cab. And, for when you return, a little sore-headed in the early hours, 24-hour room service will send you up whatever edible assistance you need.

Graduate Columbus, for collegiate chic

There is no shortage of luxury hotels in Columbus, and the Graduate in the Short North Arts District gets top marks for creating a hip home for the night. You’ll feel at the top of the class in a king suite, with plenty to entertain the old college chums you’re visiting. There’s a sectional sleeper sofa outside of the master bedroom, just in case the party guy in the group gets a little too carried away with the in-room wet bar.

Sheraton Columbus Hotel at Capitol Square, for eating your heart out

A Club Level room is an absolute must at the Sheraton, especially if you like to graze around the clock. The lounge is open 24/7, which means grab-and-go snacks are always available. Complimentary non-alcoholic beverages, breakfast, hors d’oeuvres and dessert await you in the non-witching hours, with Starbucks coffee and alcoholic drinks also ready to wet your whistle. Nibble with new friends, and appreciate the skyline views from the lounge, or take your haul back to your king bed, and fill the sheets with crumbs while you channel surf.

DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Columbus Downtown, for kid-pleasing treats

Views of the Scioto River and skyline are all the more impressive from a high-floor deluxe suite at DoubleTree Suites. The single bedroom is separated from the living area, giving you privacy to enjoy a drink mixed at the wet bar while your little ones watch movies all night on the couch. Your kids will appreciate the hotel as well, albeit, they’ll simply think that only the best hotels in Columbus give out free chocolate chip cookies.

Hilton Columbus at Easton, for non-stop shopping

Hilton takes window shopping to a whole new level in its Executive Level suite. You’ll have a beautiful view of the hundreds of restaurants and shops in Easton Town Center, mentally plotting a shopping spree as you soak in your Italian marble bathroom, with a plush robe and fresh cup of coffee warming you up for a day of racking up credit card points. If you spent too much time tag-popping and are too tired to eat out, Easton Social in the lobby has a BBQ Chicken Flatbread hot and ready for dinner.
