I booked a room for a concert that we were seeing at Nationwide Arena. However, I screwed up the dates on the reservation and didn't realize it until I went to check-in... Caitlyn pointed out my mistake and I thought I would be out of luck... she was still able to find a room for us, credited back the money... More

Rooms are very clean and modern! Erica and the rest of the staff at the front desk are friendly and very helpful to all our needs. A five minute walk to Nationwide Arena, and the Arena District! Too cold to walk??? A cab is like $3-4 Stay there each time I'm in Columbus!

Me and my friend were just in Columbus, Ohio for a concert on Valentine's Day weekend. And we did not expect for the hotel to shock us like we did. Check in process was fast and efficient. When we both walked into the room it was so nice and clean. Quite spotless. Beds were very comfortable. A big plus for... More

Very good customer service on a very busy weekend. Rooms were very modern and clean. The hotel is close to just about everything downtown. My only concern was that they advertised parking (one of the reasons I booked with them) and their lot was full. I had to pay more to park at a different lot.

Thank you for letting us know you had a Great Stay in our seven story Red Roof Plus+. I hope you enjoyed our new H.D. flat panel TVs and had a chance to use our free Wi-Fi service. A minor repair was made to one of our elevators and both are now working back up to speed. We rarely have... More

The Red Roof Plus is across the street from the Drury and is half the price. Room was nice, modern and clean. I hate to think how much more it would have been to stay at the Hyatt! Staff was very friendly.

My previous trip to Columbus included a stay at the Hyatt. I was nervous about staying off site of the Convention Center and wondered what kind of quality the Red Roof Inn could provide. I was so very pleasantly surprised. Comfort, quality, and exceptional friendliness of the staff will have me returning here next year.
