I came here for my sons basic graduation.i had no idea where I should stay. I originally booked a room closer to fort benning, but I checked out after the first night and stayed another 3 nights here. Its only about 15 mmin from fort bennings, very close to shops and freeway. They have the best staff, especially their bar... More

We stayed here for one night while attending orientation at OSU. It is only about a mile away from campus and is very convenient. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. We usually stay at Hampton Inns, and for the same price or less breakfast is included. It would be nice if Hilton gave complimentary breakfast as well. We... More

We have stayed at this location in the past and have found everything to be superior to other hotels. The service, the amenities, the location and the price is unbeatable !!! The value that is received for the price paid is unparalleled.

Was a very luxurious hotel! Wish the breakfast was included, but the complimentary lemon water and coffee were very nice. Loved having the keurig coffee maker in the room! The staff were very friendly and most importantly it was CLEAN!

Everything was great, room clean, comfortable, and quiet. Staff were very friendly, and service was good. Nice location, and I will stay here again when traveling through. I would recommend this hotel to others who are passing through and looking for a nice place to stay.

Everything was topnotch except a few rude guests in the pool. Would definitely return. Rooms were clean. Staff was helpful. A bit pricey for Columbus, but I don't mind paying a bit more for a good experience. Mexican restaurant next door -- El Vaquero -- wasn't bad at all, and the breakfast at the hotel was fine. I read some... More

For the price, the room is extremely outdated. We were very disappointed with the noise from the hall, the lack of technology and that the AC unit was unable to keep the room cool. In our opinion, you can find a much better room for a lot less money.

This Hilton Garden Inn was a stopover on our trip back home. The hotel was modern looking and very well kept. The lobby was beautiful and inviting. The gentleman at the front desk was very helpful in assisting us to find a place to dine in the area. He gave us menus and coupons for the restaurants. Great service.

Good hotel but very expensive and a bit out of the way…everything is “a la card”. Shuttle service is not offered from and to the airport leaving you with the option of getting a cab for $40 each way. Speaking about shuttle, it will take you only 3 miles away from the hotel…The shuttle drops you off in the area... More
