Designed by HOK’s Chicago office for Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority, the $140 million Hilton Columbus Downtown hotel will feature 532 rooms, 48 suites and 22,800 sq ft of meeting space.

“This full-service, state-of-the-art atrium hotel will be efficient, sustainable and contextually responsive in its innovative use of glass, masonry and steel,” says Todd Halamka, group vice president and director of design for HOK’s Chicago office.

HOK’s design includes a full height atrium lobby and restaurant featuring a large glass roof, 532 full-service Hilton rooms, a brick and glass fašade and a unique glass bridge to the adjacent convention center.

The hotel, slated for completion in late 2012, was designed to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED-NC Silver standards.

HOK was selected as the design architect/architect of record from 31 national design firms vying to design the new hotel.

Columbus-based Moody Nolan Inc. and Illinois-based Simeone Deary Design Group will complete the interior design of the new hotel.
