We stayed two nights earlier this month for an event at the Convention Center. Room was great with exception the bathroom and sink area was a little crammed. We had our two children and small dog with us. All enjoyed the hotel. We were able to do a walking tour of the city which was great. Breakfast was pretty good.... More

No complaints, cheaper hotel in the city center, but by no means worse than others. Staff was great, refund on parking costs due to lack of spaces. The is the only bad thing about location and why it doesn't get 5 stars. If you come back late you might need to pay more for lot next to hotel's or take... More

Family contingent from FL and Va gathered in 6 rooms for my niece's wedding. Hotel staff went above and beyond to meet our needs to include arrangement for a rental recliner for my 90 year old mother from a 3rd party. Other extra, personal accommodations were appreciated. Rooms clean, service responsive, staff professional in all areas of the hotel (continental... More

This week I spent two nights and three days in Columbus Ohio, An associate booked me at the Red Roof Downtown. To say it was a Red Roof Plus is an understatement! Staff was most accommodating and the room was a total surprise!! Very large, immaculately cleaned and walking distance to the Convention Center and Short North District of Columbus.... More

I have avoided Red Roof hotels in the past since the only ones I had seen were rough, but this Red Roof Plus+ has made me consider this hotel brand in the future. We looked into this hotel mainly because of the price ($110 a night), and the location, downtown Columbus right next to the Columbus Blue Jackets arena and... More

I have been to this place twice this winter to go to NHL games at the arena which is only a couple of blocks away on Nationwide Blvd. It is very easy to get to by car (parking is across the street and costs $10 per day). The only room available when I arrived around 3 pm was an accessible... More

Room rate was reasonable & close to the convention center but the room outdated, heavy smell of chlorine, parking across the street plus you must pay 10.00 a night to park and the breakfast bar was empty and everything was cold. Will not stay again.

Our room was spacious and had modern decor. Best part was the huge amount of electric sockets scattered around the room, easily accessible and convenient. Love the free Wi-Fi, strong and no issues. Temperature adjustable and our room looks out into the convention center area. Bathroom sink was outside the bathroom. Easier to get ready with 2 people. Full length... More
