Visiting Columbus: Where to play, eat and spend the night

Sure, Columbus can be done in a day. But where's the fun in that? (And that drive north on I-71 can seem much longer than two hours when you're starting at 2 a.m.)

A better idea: Stay the night. A few suggestions on places to stay and play:

Where to stay:

Le Meridien, The Joseph, the city's newest, chicest hotel, opened last year on a terrific stretch of High Street in the city's hip Short North neighborhood. The hotel offers a spa, Cameron Mitchell's newest restaurant, the Guild House, and a terrific art collection on display. Alas, this place will cost you: Rates start at $250 a night.

Travelers on a tight budget can consider the Wayfaring Buckeye Hostel, which sleeps 12 in four rooms. It's located in a residential area about a mile northwest of OSU's main campus area. Bed rates start at $28 – but reserve early; this place books fast.

One more economical choice: The Red Roof Plus Columbus Downtown-Convention Center, with clean, modern rooms an easy walk to the Arena District. Rooms start at about $90. (There's a second Red Roof Plus on Ackerman Road, near OSU, but rates are higher.)

Where to eat: Dog lovers can't go wrong at Dirty Franks Hot Dog Palace (248 S. 4th St. and 2836 W. Broad St.). For higher-end fare, try the Guild House, Cameron Mitchell's new outpost in the Short North. Also recommended: Elevator Brewery and Draught Haus, 161 N. High St., and Adriatico's Pizza on the OSU campus. And no trip to Columbus would be complete without a late-night run to Buckeye Donuts, open 24 hours a day at 1998 N. High St.

Have time for a little sightseeing? Catch a game at Huntington Park, home of the Columbus Clippers, the Indians' AAA farm team; tour the recently expanded Columbus Museum of Art; or go ziplining at ZipZone Canopy Tours, just north of town at Camp Mary Orton.
