Nice place. Paid $5 extra (for 2) for breakfast (through the Hilton website), which was made to order. Don't expect walking distance to most Columbus landmarks, but easy short drive to downtown/arena district, OSU (the 'Shoe and Value City Arena), and the fairgrounds (Crew Stadium). Some fast food and a Mexican restaurant within walking distance. I would stay here if... More

This was my first time at a Hilton Garden Inn. A standard budget hotel. The lobby is nicer than expected and they do have some food service. The hotel itself is somewhat in an isolated area and you really have to drive to everything. It is most convenient to OSU and Methodist Hospital. You'll have to drive to downtown and... More

We were part of a group of 32 volleyball players and parents in town for the Boys Junior Nationals Volleyball tournament. We were assigned the hotel so we had no choice in that part. But, the hotel could not have been more cooperative and helpful. The entire staff, from housekeeping, to food service, and especially the front desk staff, were... More

This is a great place to stay if you need to be around the campus of Ohio State. Front Desk Staff is very helpful. In walking distance to a couple of restaurants. The rooms a very clean. Nice areas to relax and lounge, both inside and outside.

The accommodations and staff at this hotel are good. The value of the stay is not as good for a veteran. The hotel offers a veterans discount if the rooms are not filling up; however, once the rooms are closer to filling up there is no veterans discount. So the veteran is important if the hotel is desperate for business... More

Elise Burrows / Front Ofc manager was delightful. I am well travelled, and in 1000+ hotel stays, I have never met a hotel employee that went above and beyond. I will certainly rave to everyone about our stay. Firstly we had an emergency that brought us to Columbus, after driving all night we needed to stay the next night close... More

What a fabulous hotel! We wound up at another one across the street for one night and the difference was night and day! So, glad I had booked this hotel for a majority of our business trip. Accommodations were very comfortable. Breakfast was good. Wifi wasn't as fast as we would've liked, but there was a high speed option for... More

I stayed at the hilton garden inn for 4 days. It was a little less than i expected. The rooms were nice and clean but i figured for the price you would get a complimentary breakfast, intstead it cost $9.99. I think i'll go elswhere next time im in columbus.

A first class operation from the moment you set foot in the door. The lobby is beautifully decorated, the staff is extremely courteous and attentive. The room was extremely comfortable and immaculate. Breakfast was also exceptional with made to order eggs, omelets, waffles, etc.
