NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla.—Driftwood Hospitality Management announced the completion of its largest renovation to-date, a $9.5 million top-to-bottom overhaul of the Sheraton Columbus Hotel at Capitol Square in downtown Columbus, Ohio. The completion of this renovation program is part of Driftwood’s growing footprint in the expanding Downtown Columbus area.
“The Columbus market is ripe with potential and we believe this is a terrific market to invest in, as the economy begins to make a comeback,” said David Buddemeyer, president of Driftwood Hospitality Management. “We are excited to complete an extensive renovation at this property and look forward to the response by the local community and guests.”
The multi-million dollar renovation brought upgrades to all interior spaces of the hotel as well as a new flag under the Starwood brand. The 403-room property now includes all of the Sheraton brand’s signature offerings including the Sweet Sleeper Bed, Club Lounge, Link@Sheraton experienced with Microsoft, and Sheraton Fitness programmed by Core Performance. The Sheraton Columbus Hotel at Capitol Square is also home to the Starbucks Capitol Square, one of the top-selling Starbucks in the region.
