Hello. I will be traveling through Columbus soon, and possibly needing a hotel there for the night. I don't know the city at all. Any unsafe areas, particularly after dark? Thanks for any help.

There are quite a few "unsafe areas" in Columbus. But if you stay around the Mall/Shopping/ Main Street you should be fine. An excellent hotel is the Holiday Inn Express. Very nice hotel with indoor pool and food service area. Hope this helps.

That does help. As it turns out I'll be traveling into town after dark and will need a hotel, so this is good information to know. Thanks!

There is also a new hotel right off of Hwy 82 E, a couple of blocks from the "main drag" with all the restaurants. I think it is a Fairfield Inn.

Your best bet would be to stay at the newest hotel, the Marriott/Fairfield Inn off of Hwy 45 on 18th Avenue. That's where I would stay if coming here.

No matter where you choose, keep your eyes & ears open and be sure to lock your vehicle as well.

There are thugs everywhere.

Yes, if you stay anywhere on HWY 45 you will be fine...they have several nice hotels, but I would choose Holiday Inn

Thanks to all who responded. I did stay on Hwy 45 and felt completely safe. For the record, what I saw of what I assume is your downtown area looked very attractive, well-kept, and busy. I left with a good impression of your city. Thanks again.
