Awesome place and soooo close to all the places downtown and also the river walk and the convention center. But, beware the train that runs right down the side do the hotel during the night and in the wee hours of the morning. Better to ask for a room in the other side of the hotel cuz it does not... More

The Marriott Downtown is my first choice when traveling to Fort Benning. It is an old industrial building that they renovated into a hotel. The location is perfect. It is close enough to post without all the distractions. There are plenty of great restaurants within walking distance. There is also a few college bars within walking distance. Nice place!

As the only (and probably best) higher-end hotel in Downtown Columbus, the Marriott has an enviable location: right near the river walk and downtown restaurants, and still only about 20 minutes away from Ft. Benning. That said, they could stand to update the guest rooms, which have dingy walls and tired furniture. The housekeeper only left us one hand towel... More

We stayed in the "old" section of the hotel facing the infamous train tracks. The room was great. It was clean, well appointed, and plenty large. The exposed beams, old brick walls and decor made it something different from the usual hotel room. The only minor ding could be the TV was on the small side. The lobby was very... More

If you are planning an event in Columbus, I would totally recommend getting in touch with Kristie. She and the staff of the Marriott worked long and hard with several of our committee members over the span of about 6 months for our 30th class reunion.

Kristie is our "Catering Sales Manager" and she is certainly motivated to always provide excellent leadership for her "Catering/Special Event Marriott Team" - no matter how large or how small the Event may be!! Her energy is "contagious" and her Team takes every step to make sure you have "wonderful memories" to always treasure! More

Location great for wanting to be near the river walk and also Broadway where all the bars and restaurants are. Everything is within walking distance. We were here for a 2 night weekend stay.

Great staff, but when all's said and done... a Marriott is a Marriott is a Marriott. The decor was really rather unexciting, but the bed was as comfortable as in every other Marriott, which of course is what you should expect.
