Columbus prides itself on fine hospitality, facilities and services. We have 11 hotel/motels offering a total of 675 guest rooms. During free time, your attendees will enjoy shopping in our specialty shops, antique stores and malls, dining in our fine restaurants and relaxing and playing at our recreational facilities. The friendly, caring people of our community are here to make you feel welcome and to make your stay an enjoyable one.
Columbus is easily accessible and conveniently located 90 minutes from Omaha and Lincoln, 70 minutes from Grand Island and 50 minutes from I-80. US Highways 30 and 81 intersect in the city. Now a community of nearly 23,000, Columbus is large enough to adequately meet the needs of your group yet not too big to forget that hometown spirit.
Columbus is ready to host all types of events. We have facilities that can handle any type or size of meeting or convention. Columbus also has quality sport venues to host outstanding sporting events including a 260,000-square-foot field house scheduled for completion in December of 2023.
The Convention and Visitors Bureau offers complimentary services to help make any event go smoothly. Call us today so we can share what services we can offer your group or event. We guarantee service above and beyond!
