The five-story, full-service boutique Hancock Hotel began construction in 2016, and makes use of European architecture that compliments Findlay’s historic South Main Street. With 99 guestrooms, including 87 standard rooms, 11 suites and a presidential suite, the hotel also includes a “living room” lobby space, a fitness center, 7,040 square feet of meeting space and a ballroom that can hold 360 guests for events such as weddings and corporate functions.
