Dublin, Ohio (October 19, 2022) – Award-winning, Columbus-based Cameron Mitchell Restaurants (CMR) and noted mixed-use developer Crawford Hoying have announced their partnership in bringing a first-of-its kind, upscale hotel to Central Ohio. The boutique hotel will feature a new signature CMR restaurant, several unique food and beverage options, multiple outdoor spaces, and an event and conference center -- each embodying CMR’s extraordinary genuine hospitality and culinary excellence. Located Southeast of the 161 roundabout at Riverside Drive and West Granville Road, the hotel will be part of a mixed-use expansion of Bridge Park in downtown Dublin.  

“After nearly 30 years in business, we are unbelievably excited for our foray into the hotel industry. It was a natural decision to align with our longtime partner, Crawford Hoying, on this endeavor. This will undoubtedly be one of the premier hotels in the Midwest, combining the legendary culinary experience we’re known for with a preeminent hospitality focus,” said Cameron Mitchell, founder and CEO of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. “We’ve been working on this project idea with Crawford Hoying for years, and not only will it be the best hotel in the city, but it will also be a place for Columbus residents and visitors alike to gather, celebrate, dine, and relax.  We couldn’t be happier to bring this one-of-a-kind, culinary-forward lifestyle hotel concept to our hometown, and to the rapidly expanding Bridge Park development.”

“This hotel and development are important additions to Bridge Park and Central Ohio,” said Brent Crawford, principal and founder of Crawford Hoying. “We understand it’s a big undertaking, but we’re looking forward to once again partnering with Cameron Mitchell Restaurants and working with the City of Dublin and the local community to bring this luxury hotel to the region.”

Additional information, including opening timeline and renderings, will be available as the project progresses.
