A perfect location for exploring the city
A Stay Alfred travel apartment at 250 High puts you smack in the middle of downtown Columbus, just a quick elevator ride away from High Street – one of the most dynamic places in Columbus and home to much of the best entertainment in the city. You’ll be within easy walking distance of the culturally-rich Columbus Museum of Art and the always lovely Bicentennial Park, and you can catch some of Ohio’s top performers at Central Ohio’s oldest amphitheater, the Southern Theater.
The Columbus Zoo is famous for having the world's oldest captive gorilla, Colo, who was born in 1956, as well as a parade of adorable polar bears, red pandas and sea turtles. The city is also known for the charming 19th-century brick houses of the German Village, with its cozy art galleries and artisan coffee shops, and if you're visiting during the warmer months you can't miss the Park of Roses, a romantic 13-acre garden containing more than 11,000 rose bushes.
Festivals abound year round, and the area features a huge selection of high-quality restaurant options, as well as outstanding pubs. The Goat is right across the street and does great pub fare and some creative cocktails, or treat yourself to a double scoop at Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams – the dark chocolate truffle comes highly recommended. And there are plenty of grocery stores nearby, should you feel like whipping up a feast in your travel apartment’s kitchen.
High Society Living at High Columbus
Designed to completely spoil you, Stay Alfred at 250 High might leave you wanting to hang around the grounds for the duration of your trip. What makes this building so special? It’s not just the high ceilings and natural light, although those certainly don’t hurt.
What our guests really fall in love with is the always-accessible gym, the clubhouse, and the yoga studio where you can shake off the stress of the day. There's an outdoor fire pit and BBQ if you feel like grilling some steaks, and a rooftop deck where you can take in the breathtaking views across the city with a drink in hand.
Stay Alfred makes your trip exceptional with our unique combination of service and privacy that makes our apartments feel like your home away from home.

Your apartment features full, modern kitchen, central heating and air-conditioning and even a washer and dryer – so you never have to worry about running out of clean clothes.
