Used as a multi-purpose arena in Columbus, Ohio, the well-known Nationwide Arena has been a staple with the community since its completion in 2000. Home to the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League, it is one of two facilities in the city, along with the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Our hotel near Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio is a popular choice for those planning on attending a conference or event, as we are located about a 20-minute drive from the arena.
The arena includes a smaller rink known as the OhioHealth IceHaus, which acts as a practice rink for the Blue Jackets, along with youth hockey games, and for public skating. Because of this, Nationwide Arena is the first NHL arena with an on-site practice facility, making it one of the three such facilities in the NHL.
