    First Look: The Hilton Downtown Columbus
    Published on November 12, 2012 7:00 am
    By: Walker

    The new 532-room Hilton Columbus Downtown hotel officially opened on October 19th, and has seen a flurry of activity in its inaugural weeks since then. It hosted this year’s CMH Fashion Week event, was ground zero for the local Democratic watch party on election night, and even accommodated President Obama during one of his many Columbus visits prior to his re-election victory.

    You had to have been there right about the same time I was there because the cleaning lady was in that exact same spot

    Thanks for mentioning this as I forgot to adjust my camera’s clock for DST. I took this at 2:04, and the skywalk was opened not long before that. Sorry I missed you, Nelson!

    Listening to Coleman talk, my thoughts are…wow, we are talking about a sidewalk with lights one story off the ground right? I mean, beautiful? world class? architecturally significant? Hyperbole. It’s a bridge that connects a hotel to a convention center. Let’s just calm down.

    yep, glad the skybridge will protect the Hilton folks from the rabble on High St. Skybridges are so 1970. I thought new urbanism was about folks walking the streets of town not being isolated from street life

    Would come in handy for those working conventions in extreme winter conditions.

    First off I had no idea it was going to light up like this and I love it. Second, as far as sky walks go, I think this is an excellent design and as someone who hated the idea of a sky bridge at first, I am really pleased with how it turned out. Also, Mayor Coleman said exactly what we all have been saying on here “why do we need a sky bridge, we want people on the street” …. he gets it … but that said, when one of the main goals is to attract bigger and better conventions and the convention leaders say we need it, as a city leader, you should prob. listen to them.
