This place is loud. You can hear everything that's going on next door. That's my biggest issue. People talking, toilets flushing, loud hallways. Creamer in my room was 6 months old and rock solid. I waited at check in for at least 10 minutes as the front desk person was away helping another guest. He was the only one on... More

This hotel is a good basic business hotel with easy access to campus and downtown core (at least by car). Breakfast is good - servers are uberfriendly - helps start my day on right foot. Beware, frequently booked out by traveling college sports teams. Basic heath club. From my POV best thing about hotel mini convenience store that's open late... More

The rooms are great, clean and roomy. The staff are particularly good and welcoming. If you want to grab a hearty breakfast before heading out for the day, the buffet in the lobby is quite a good deal and good food

I left my phone charger when I checked out and called the same day so I can have someone pick it up for me. Unfortunately, the housekeeping team was not able to locate it. I am quite disappointed that within a very short period of time from the time I checked out and from the time I called, they can... More

Hilton Garden Inn in Columbus, OH has been consistently reliable, clean and serviced by supportive and friendly staff. On-line check-in is very easy and staff was efficient and friendly with my late arrival. Breakfast wait staff is especially fast and friendly to keep your morning on track.

I've never had a bad experience in over 10 years (especially never with any staff who are always welcoming and helpful) and the rooms/accommodations range from solid-extremely nice. Highly Recommend...

Every time we came back to our room we had to go back down to the lobby and wait to once again to get the key redone very up setting. Plus the nightly rate was inflated since there was concert in the area.

Online reservation was made for a smoking room, email confirmation came through as non-smoking. One phone call to the hotel and this was corrected. The staff were very helpful during our entire stay. The made to order breakfast was a great bargain. We will stay at this hotel again.

On our way to the hotel we called to notify them that we would be checking in late as we have done numerous times. We were told the room would only be held until 2 AM. Cameron then asked for our name which I didn't provide as the room was paid from Hilton points. They were not going to get... More
