Downtown Columbus Gets a New Neighbor

December 5, 2018

The nation’s leading provider of travel apartments opens not one, but two prime downtown locations.

December 5, 2018 (Spokane, WA) - Business and leisure travelers have a new way to stay in Columbus: Stay Alfred. With locations in only the most desirable downtown neighborhoods, Stay Alfred’s travel apartments combine the lifestyle amenities of an upscale apartment building with the quality, consistency and guest support of a hotel, bringing travelers the best of both worlds.

Stay Alfred will offer not one, but two locations in the heart of downtown Columbus:

“Stay Alfred’s upscale travel model makes for the perfect fit with the luxurious apartments and amazing amenities at 223 E. Town,” said Brent Crawford, principal at Crawford Hoying. “We look forward to offering an exciting, one-of-a-kind experience for those visiting the booming downtown Columbus area.”

Each Stay Alfred one- and two-bedroom travel apartment will provide guests with a high-end downtown living experience and conveniences like a full kitchen, a washer and dryer, free WiFi, dedicated living spaces and the ease of a self-guided check-in process. And, all long-term building residents enjoy exclusive perks, including complimentary friends and family stays at their own building, as well as discounts at any Stay Alfred property.

The opening of travel apartments in Columbus marks the 28th domestic destination for Stay Alfred. The company has hosted more than 600,000 guests since introducing the travel apartment concept in 2011.

“Columbus has a lot to offer our guests,” said Jordan Allen, Stay Alfred founder and CEO. “From the culinary and craft beer scene to historic German Village to the world famous zoo, we look forward to sharing the city with our guests for many years to come.”
