Although I'm a native to Ohio I've never been to Columbus before. I'm excited for a 2 night stay in late July-early August with my son to the Columbus Zoo and the Ohio State Fair. I'm not sure what area in Columbus to look for a hotel in. I know those attractions are in different areas and I don't mind a 20 min drive but I'd prefer to be near restaurants, some shopping, and preferably under $100 a night. I'd appreciate any suggestions on what part of Columbus to narrow my hotel search in or even any decent hotels. I've read a lot of the hotel reviews on TripAdvisor already but need to hone in on a suburb or area first. Thanks so much!
