The Return of the Columbus Hotel Games!

On February 8, the Greater Columbus Hoteliers got back together for the 1st time in three years for the Columbus Hotel Games! This event was created & currently hosted by area HR professionals for Columbus hoteliers to participate in a day of camaraderie and friendly competition in hotel related relays/games. It is meant to be a day for associates to get off property and foster connections for those in the industry!

We were pleased to have Jason Abady and Mason Zimmer from the Greater Columbus Sports Commission be our co-emcees for the event! They led our 11 teams through six fun, hotel-related trials in which they were pitted against one other for some fierce competition. Many stood out of the crowd and took home our superlative awards, including:

Best Team Spirit
Le Méridien Columbus, The Joseph

Best Team Leader
Michael Bernhard, Marriott Columbus Northwest

Most Valuable Supporter
Monica Black, Hilton Columbus Downtown

Best Teamwork
Red Roof

Most Valuable Player
Jacob Mauch, Hyatt Regency Columbus

Though all teams battled fiercely, only one was left standing. Congratulations to our Grand Champion of the 2023 Columbus Hotel Games - Hilton Columbus Downtown!
