Having just returned from a 4 day stay in Columbus Georgia I have to mention the Columbus Marriott as surely having the nicest, friendliest staff of any hotel I have stayed in anywhere from the Doorman to the Counter staff to the people in the restaurant and the Concierge room. I particularly have to mention Sean, Alexis and Paula as... More

When returning our son to college far from home Mom and Dad need a mental boost and this property provides each time. This complex is built in and between former factory buildings and takes us back in time. The location to the thriving historical downtown and the river is walking perfection. If you are near Columbus do not stay anywhere... More

We are certainly honored you continue to choose to stay with us as you come to visit CSU with family! The College continues to grow in our downtown area and with the RiverWalk right across the street, CSU has plans for additional "outdoor entertainment" as they have Campus Buildings right on our RiverWalk as well!

Probably the best hotel in the best location for Columbus, Georgia. It is in a renovated factory and has a lot of charm. Can't beat the location, but do skip the buffet breakfast. It was abysmal. There is one quirk which may bother some visitors. There is a train track and on Friday night at 1 in the morning, the... More

Thank you for highlighting the "historic charm" our guests feel when staying with us as we do have so much history here, in our downtown area and the "train" that runs near our Hotel - does create that feel from time to time as well! Our wonderful "Houlihan's Restaurant" is constantly adding new menu features and we look forward to... More

I had an outstanding experience with the staff at the Columbus Marriott. This was my second trip to this hotel, and Earnest the bellman remembered my name, helped me with my luggage and went out of his way to ensure some fresh produce I had bought at a farm stand along the way had plenty of ice on it. He... More

Great location if you need to be near the river or downtown. Rooms were clean, quiet, and updated. Great place for families or business. My only complaint is that it took housekeeping over 30 minutes to bring extra blankets for the sofa bed as we were in a suite. It was after 10pm so we were ready to go to... More

Beautiful opportunity for Marriott to have a great location. Unfortunately, the beauty stops at the lobby. The rooms are small, the furnishings are very worn, the guest room door allows light to shine through from the hallway all the way around [almost as bright as Jesus himself standing outside your room door]. The restaurant food is good, but the service... More

Our son got married across the street at the Trade Center so we blocked a large number of rooms for our families who were coming in from out of town. The help and attention we received from Mary and Meisha in group bookings was second to none. They helped us throughout the entire process and kindly adjusted our many changes!... More

We have stayed many times at this hotel and usually rate it 4 or 5 stars. This time there were several problems. Let me say up front, the staff is superb. They are friendly and helpful. Extremely apologetic for the problems and gave us extra Marriott points for the problems. Also, the concierge lounge is one of the best in... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times during our relocation. It is very nice and quiet. The pool really needs to be updated. It was a little dirty and had mildew in the tiles, bottom and steps. The deck was nice, but the pool could be cleaned up and expanded. Also, the business center is disappointing. Charging for 15... More

That might be part of the appeal to some. It's the most convenient hotel to downtown though. It is right by the railroad, so that can get loud especially if you're on the Mill Suites side. The staff has always been fantastic though! Friendly and efficient. Also, there's a Starbuck's downstairs if you like that kind of thing. The rooms... More
