Columbus has the largest Pride celebration in Ohio, often attracting around 500,000 attendees. This year, Columbus Pride will be taking place from June 17-18. For any locals or visitors looking to make the most of their Pride weekend, the newly-opened AC Hotel has the perfect package.
Located in the Arena District, the hotel puts visitors directly in the heart of the action, surrounded by the bars and clubs of downtown Columbus. Plus, their Pride Parlor Package offers guests some truly unique and awesome enhancements to their celebration. The package includes a two-night stay from June 17-19, as well as tons of Pride goodies!
First up, guests will be greeted with a Pride-themed welcome amenity (celebratory champagne included), but the real treat comes at the Pride Parlor. On the morning of the Pride parade, guests who book the package will get access to the hotel’s rooftop Lumin Bar, which provides stunning views of downtown Columbus.
Lumin will be transformed into the Pride Parlor and will serve cocktails and snacks, and come complete with a team of artists from the Paul Mitchell School. They will help glam you up and get you ready for the day ahead. From neon eyeshadow to airbrushed rainbows, rhinestones, and more, it’s the perfect way to look Insta-ready for Pride!
According to a statement from AC Hotels, “The goal of the Pride Parlor is to give a space for LGBTQ+ guests to express their unique style and feel (and look!) their best for the annual march!”
