SmarterTravel Spotlight: Hotel LeVeque

Housed in Columbus’ historic forty-seven story LeVeque Tower, Hotel LeVeque is an homage to the glamorous aesthetics of the 1920s. The hotel, themed around stargazing, pulls together elements of astronomy with the existing art deco features of the building, leaving guests feeling as if they’d spent the night among the stars.

Hotel LeVeque towers over the heart of downtown Columbus, Ohio and is only a short commute to the city’s best-known attractions including the The Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens (15 minutes by car or bus) and The Columbus Museum of Art (10 minutes by bus or 17 minute walk). 

It’s also just a few stops away from the Short North Arts District, a vibrant stretch of city where you can start your day gallery-hopping or taking in the abundance of public art and end your evening sampling a flight of locally distilled whiskey.

The 555-foot, 47-floor LeVeque Tower was built in 1927. It remained the tallest building in the city until 1974, when the Rhodes Tower in downtown Columbus took over the title. Hotel LeVeque opened its doors on floors five through ten of the tower in 2017 and currently features 149 rooms and suites. Elements of the property’s art deco exterior are pulled in throughout the hotel’s decor, from the gilded geometric light fixtures in common spaces to the clean lines of the columns in the lobby.


With the hotel’s central location, you’ll never be far from any service you could need. However, the hotel still offers several on-site amenities, including:

  • 24-hour Fitness Center
  • In-room mini fridges
  • Room service
  • Complimentary Wi-FI
  • On-site Starbucks
