Reservations

You can make your room reservation via the hotel's toll-free number (800-870-0349). When speaking with a live person, we recommend that you spell out our name as "Ohio Valley Filk Fest"; don't abbreviate it as OVFF.

You can also make your reservation online via the hotel's website. Use the code OV1 in the Group Code field to get our special convention room rate. However, please note the online system is not programmed to handle "flat rates". If you indicate more than two people, the system will quote you a higher rate. Just make the reservation for two people, then tell the front desk clerk the true number when you check in. Or if you really want the true number of people listed in the system, follow the procedure outlined in the next paragraph.

If you experience ANY problems making a reservation, please don't give up and book elsewhere. The reservation program the hotel uses can be a bit "finicky". When using a group code to get a special rate if the program thinks our room block is sold out for just one of the nights or room type you requested, it rejects the whole reservation. Go ahead and make your reservation without using our group code at the off-the-street price for the correct dates and room type you want. The hotel will send you a confirmation email. Just forward the email to us at: hotel at ovff dot org; and we will fix it so you get the con rate.

Directions and Transportation

Map to Doubletree Worthington Hotel

Located north of the city, the Doubletree Hotel Columbus/Worthington offers an upscale design in a popular suburban setting. Conveniently located within the Crosswoods development right off St. Rte 23 and the I-270 outerbelt, the hotel is surrounded by more than 25 fine restaurants and a movie theatre complex. Just minutes away from Worthington Industries, JP Morgan Chase, PPG Industries, and the new Polaris Fashion Place Mall. Enjoy championship golf tournaments 10 minutes away from our hotel at the Muirfield Village Golf Club or plan a fun day at the Columbus Zoo.

From the AIRPORT

The hotel operates a free shuttle to and from the airport. Call the hotel and ask to speak to the FRONT DESK a couple of weeks before the con and tell them your arrival time. They will arrange to have the shuttle waiting for you. Please do not wait until the last second; the hotel needs some advance notice to coordinate pickups and schedule a driver accordingly. The shuttle service is normally available from 6 am until 10 pm daily. And don't forget to tell them when you want a ride BACK to the airport after the con is over!
