Because it is located slightly farther from the hustle and bustle of downtown, Hilton Columbus/Polaris doesn’t fill up quite as quickly for major events as some of the other area hotels do. It does see some compression traffic from the city’s largest events, such as with the Arnold Sports Festival in February and Ohio State Buckeye football games in the fall, but for the most part, availability is fairly open even up until just a few weeks in advance. The Polaris area is surrounded by a number of corporate headquarters, so weekday rooms often are fairly filled with business and corporate travelers. Even so, a week’s notice usually is sufficient to lay your claim to a room at the Columbus hotel.
