  • I have been to this Arena many times for work and I love it. I had a great time. This time I noticed a very poor quality in the food laid out. I know you can do better so take some pride in seeing goo...  more »

  • It was very clean and organized. It's a great venue for concerts. Getting in was very quick and painless. The staff was extremely friendly. I didn't purchase any drinks or food, so I can't comment about the service there.
  • GO JACKETS!!!!! Nationwide Arena is a family friendly environment, a great place to take your family to watch a live NHL hockey game. As a CBJ season ticket holder I go to many of their home games. The Columbus Blue Jackets are an exciting team to watch live! I have not been to any of their other venues but I hear they are excellent as well.
  • Nationwide is one of the best venues I've visited. Great layout with lots of space so you don't feel like cattle being herded along in a crowd. Perfect to catch a hockey game or concert. And the Arena District surrounding Nationwide is awesome! Tons of restaurants and bars. Food is a bit pricey at the arena, so you're better off grabbing a bite and a drink before heading in to your event.
  • Amazing staff, so friendly and excited. The sound was clear and loud, there was tons of room and never did it feel out of control. Loved our time here, will definitely travel back from Toledo again for another concert!
  • This arena is huge! Watched a Blue Jackets game and I had a great time. Fun atmosphere.

Where to stay in Columbus

Because Columbus serves as one of the country's major convention centers, its downtown offers comfortable rooms at all price levels. Hotels in the central part of town not only keep you close to all of the city's major attractions, but also provide you with modern amenities that include 24-hour room service, fitness centers, spa services, and on-site restaurants and bars. To stay in the city for a fraction of the price, consider an inn or motel near the Interstate exits.
