First thing's first: why would anyone want to visit Columbus, Indiana? Well, this city of roughly 44,000 may not have the same reputation as most "destination" cities, but what it does have is stunning architecture. And loads of it. And the Hotel Indigo Columbus Architectural Center is the ideal place to stay while seeing it. This downtown hotel offers a variety of spacious, well-appointed rooms and suites, as well as a pool, fitness center, and on-site bar/bistro. But the real attraction are the many buildings in the town itself, including the I.M. Pei-designed public library, churches, a bank, and a private residence created by Eero Saarinen, and structures designed by Richard Meier, Robert Venturi, and other big-name architects.
