A number of popular downtown Columbus events, coupled with The Westin Columbus’ popularity with wedding receptions and room blocks, means that availability can be scarce during peak spring and summer seasons. For stays during events like the Komen Race for the Cure in May, the Columbus Arts Festival in June, the Jazz and Rib Festival in July, Pelotonia in August and Ohio State Buckeye football games throughout the fall, it’s recommended that you book your rooms as soon as you know you’ll need them, up to several months in advance. Of course, the hardest months to book are also the ones when Columbus has the most to offer. In addition to the aforementioned events and festivals, downtown comes alive in the warmer months with special programming at the new Columbus Commons and Scioto Mile parks.
