The Westin Columbus features an interesting blend of historical architecture and the contemporary style that resonates among the Westin brand. The building’s original exterior and beautifully restored lobby exude French Renaissance elegance. Creams and light browns compose the main color scheme, while fantastic columns and crown molding display an intricate level of detail. Other spaces, such as Thurber’s bar and restaurant, the fitness center and the 188 guest rooms have a more modern flare, but not so much as to be incongruous with the rest of the property’s classic design. The Columbus hotel strives to keep the historic touches alive — meeting room doors date back to the building’s 19th-century birth — without compromising the Westin brand standards — a challenge that is overcome with what seems like effortless grace.
