My team was here for conference at the arena. We ordered online for a 1:30 delivery time at our hotel. By 2:30 still no freaky fast service. We walked the 1/2 mile to retrieve our food.

Spent the day downtown here for business, but was surprised on how many people were walking around during lunch time! Perfect location for a lot of restaurants which are all near by!

This is a very nice area with a large concert venue and several nice restaurants. We just drove thru on a recent visit to Columbus.

Maybe I'm too sedate for this area, but it seemed loud and a little cheesy to me. Walking through early in the morning allowed me to look at some of the gorgeous old buildings without the crowds.

Close to many downtown hotels and a great place... More

We love this area. There are plenty of places to eat and drink all around Nationwide Arena. You have plenty of choices of what to eat or drink. Grab a bite to eat before going to a Blue Jackets game or concert at Nationwide Arena. The minor league baseball stadium is a short walk away too! If your in town... More

The Arena district is awesome if you want to get a night out on the town with your significant other or just friends, the bars are really good and they are within walking distance for the most part.
