Renaissance Columbus Westerville Hotel

Columbus, Ohio

The Columbus Westerville Polaris is a lake house style hotel that captures the attitude of a town that’s always been full of character.

Its location is perfectly suited for exploring the charming and unique surroundings of Westerville. Visit the botanic gardens and relaxed coffee houses, and browse the town’s boutiques, or discover the town’s storied history at the Public Library and Museum, a building once home to the headquarters of the Anti-Saloon League during Prohibition. Thankfully, those days are gone (the county only lifted its dry status in 2006) and you’re more than welcome to wine and dine in the hotel’s cozy restaurant and bar. If you’re craving fresh air, take your drink to our outdoor area, where you can keep warm relaxing by the firepits.
