Located in the heart of the Short North—Columbus’s arts and entertainment district. Filled with the modern art collection of developers Ron and Joel Pizzuti.



The dining room here is very upscale and has a dual-sided bar with one side facing the lobby, the other side facing the dining room. The suites are quite spacious, including the bathrooms with a sultry ambience including soaking tubs in front of full length windows offering a panoramic view of downtown.
