The Renaissance Westerville and The Two-One Restaurant Welcome Guests
to Enjoy the Modern American Lake House-Inspired Property

Renaissance Hotels announced today its newest concept is now open for business in central Ohio, bringing the first full-service hotel to Westerville. The Renaissance Columbus Westerville-Polaris Hotel (Renaissance Westerville) opened its doors to guests this afternoon along with the Two-One restaurant, named after the 21st Amendment in honor of the community’s rich history in prohibition.

Located off of Polaris Parkway and near Uptown Westerville, the modern American lake house-inspired hotel will feature 222 rooms and 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and banquet space with the capacity to seat up to 750 guests.

Renaissance Westerville offers guests sweeping views of the adjacent lake through floor to ceiling windows, as well as nature-inspired finishes, spacious hotel rooms, outdoor relaxation areas with firepits, a tranquil walking path and comfortable seating along a spacious patio that extends across the back of the hotel.

This project adds to the continuing partnership between Concord Hospitality and Continental Building Company as they have a few projects in process in the Columbus area.

“We are excited to welcome guests to this unique hotel and look forward to defying the usual hotel experience, exceeding guest expectations and further establishing ourselves as a hotel destination of choice in Columbus, said Mark Laport, president and CEO of Concord Hospitality. “The Renaissance name is synonymous with quality, and this hotel not only provides guests with the service they deserve, but also invokes a sense of their favorite lake-house vacation getaway.”

With a heavy local focus on the Westerville community, the hotel will feature area artists and musicians, as well as offer “Navigators” to support guests seeking distinct Westerville experiences. Other amenities include a top-of-the-line fitness facility, an indoor swimming pool and chic Marriot Rewards R Lounge for frequent guests.

“We are proud to be part of the Westerville community, a growing area of Columbus that offers visitors unique uptown charm, great Polaris shopping and memorable experiences,” said Scott Starek, the Renaissance Westerville’s general manager. “During our Evenings at Renaissance events, we look forward to showcasing the assets of the area. Whether you are a leisure or business traveler looking to make the most of your stay, a local couple out for a romantic dinner, or hosting a conference or wedding at our flexible venue space, our team is ready to make sure your guest experience is one to remember.”

The restaurant within the hotel, The Two-One, offers an eclectic American-themed menu featuring shared plates, salads, sandwiches, unique cocktails and mouth-watering entrees, such as smoked short rib, salmon or white cheddar popcorn cavatelli. Guests can dine overlooking the lake and fountain, whether sitting indoors or on the outdoor patio. Fire pits are available by the water to enjoy an after-dinner drink or s’mores.
