Hilton Columbus Downtown is getting ready to wow downtown Columbus, Ohio this fall with a 532-room hotel, located conveniently next to the Greater Columbus Convention Center. The glass and steel structure is nearing completion, and renderings on the website offer a peek inside the guest rooms and public spaces.

One neat tidbit about the hotel is the fact that all guest rooms will feature ceiling art by a range of contemporary (and deceased) Ohio-based artists. So if you do feel the need to experience some "culture" while you're in Columbus, you needn't look further than your bed.

Or, to be exact, above it.

Our fearless publisher MarkJ sacrificed his Wednesday yesterday by flying the new low-cost-carrier SkyBus to Columbus from New Hampshire...just for the day.

You can read all about his fun day of travel over at Jaunted but in case you wanted to know where you could stay if you were to ever visit Columbus, he has nicely dropped this picture of the Drury Inn there into the HotelChatter Flickr Pool for us to ooh and aah at.

Ok, so it's not much to look at but the lobby did have free working wireless internet access.

Remember to drop your own hotel photos into the HotelChatter Flickr Pool.

Drury Inn Columbus Lives Up To Lobby WiFi Hype

HotelChatter East spent the day in Columbus Ohio yesterday. Long story that has something to do with that whole Skybus thing. Anyway, thanks to this Drury Inn story we immediately headed to the Drury Inn in downtown Columbus post landing.

Once there we were treated to fast, quick, no hassle hotel WiFi. As an added bonus some sort of autoplay invisible ghost played the lobby piano all day. Much better than a real life hotel pianist.

Since we didn't stay at the hotel we asked a fellow lobby dweller what he thought of the place:

Better than Marriott Residence Inn here, better than the Columbus Embassy Suites--this is my first time at Drury and I am staying here every time I come to Columbus on business.

High praise from business travelers can't hurt.
