Renaissance Columbus Westerville-Polaris Hotel

Westerville, OH 43082

A limited number of rooms have been blocked at the OHCA rate. The hotel may have additional rooms available once all of the OHCA rooms are gone, but they may not be at the special rate, even if you contact them prior to the cut off date. It is unlikely that they will be able to extend the cutoff date of February 17 due to the busy nature of their hotel and since rooms go quickly, there may not be any available rooms left at that point.

To make a reservation, call the hotel directly at 833-427-0292 and ask for Reservations. Mention you are attending the OHCA Workforce Summit. The group rate is $159
