Le Méridien Columbus The Joseph in The Short North

Rikki Teeters

We spent Labor Day weekend exploring The Short North. This bustling area in downtown Columbus has some of Ohio's best shops and restaurants. It is also home to many beautiful murals and art galleries, including Le Méridien Columbus, The Joseph, where the lobby and second floor showcase beautiful art merging a gallery with a hotel. The Short North is a walkable neighborhood that has something for everyone to see and do.

When exploring a new area in Ohio, we like to stay overnight so we can get the full local experience. During our Short North trip we stayed at Le Méridien Columbus, The Joseph! This beautiful boutique hotel is located in the heart of The Short North. It is the perfect place to stay when exploring this area.

We took advantage of the amazing food and drink options located right in the lobby of our hotel - SOUL and The Guild House. It was raining during most of our stay, so we loved that we had access to such great food and drink options without even leaving our hotel!

After dinner and drinks at Whiskey on High at SOUL on Friday night, we went exploring (we don't mind a little rain). We walked all the way up and down high street while taking in the sights. We shopped and people watched all evening long. And of course we ended the night with our favorite Ohio Made Ice Cream, Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, which is just a couple blocks down from Le Méridien!

Our room was a perfect place to relax after exploring. We had a lovely view of High Street which seemed to stretch all the way across Columbus. The hotel provided local travel guides and suggestions about more places to explore. The hotel staff were so kind and helpful during our stay. They made us feel right a home. We really enjoyed our short trip to the Short North and we cannot wait to go back!
