We arrived early and asked about checking into our room. The desk clerk looked for our reservation but could not find it...so not a good start. I had my reservation info, so it worked out quickly. Our one room king suite was spacious, clean and allowed for family conversation space. The bathroom was spacious. We were on the 1st floor... More

There are not many machines but it worked well and there are also free weights. I had an issue with noise on night 2 and the hotel kindly did not book the room... More

Staff are very welcoming. Rooms are clean, fitness room and pool are very efficient. Great place for a carefree stopover. Local walks/runs downtown are very nice. There is train noise and the area is very busy, but the rooms are wrll insulated.

Always nice to enter the hotel with a welcoming staff referring to you by first name and asking how you've been. Dan, Sherry and Amy were all great and very accommodating as usual. Rooms are nice and the restaurants close makes it easy to check in relax and have dinner.

Called to reserve a room for one night...we're gold members. Had two rooms available...both over 200.00 a night!! Wow, have never encountered these high of rates before. Told them we'd continue down the road. I know it's summer but just to rest my head on a pillow for the night is not worth $200.

We stayed here on our business trip to Columbus. The front desk staff was very friendly. My room was clean and spacious. It appeared that the carpet was new.
