Needing to stay near Riverside Hospital I could only find a room here. All other hotels in the area had no vacancies d/t a huge car show and some sporting events in town. Very pricey ($180) but nice. The staff was very welcoming and even though it to was filled to capacity, I found it quiet and restful in my... More

I stayed at the HGI near the airport last week and the HGI near OSU this week. Both are good options depending on where you need to be. This HGI is close to the campus and, like the airport HGI, better than expected. The lobby is well decorated; the breakfast was very good with fresh fruit and personally made omelets;... More

This hotel was in a great location. I was able to commute to my place of business with no problems. However, I don't feel the staff there was friendly or was able to accomdoate my needs all of the time.

The headline says it all. The hotel is new and feels very fresh. It's also extremely clean and shiny. But what really makes this place is the friendliness of the staff. Front desk (especially), wait staff, housekeepers and even the Chef! Good location for business travelers and folks related to OSU activities, with lots of restaurants nearby.

Not a bad local hotel very close to OSU. Staff pleasant. Average hotel swimming pool, fitness center a little better than most hotels of this size but small. Rooms size adequate. Internet typical Hilton - slow but should be OK for checking mail. No upgrades for Hilton Honors members. Close to freeways. Plenty of places to eat. Plenty of free... More

Very dirty bathroom and bed. staff was very rude and did not offer to clean or move our family as they were very busy and 100% sold out. In fact, they told me that if I leave, they can fill the room in a few minutes. My trip was for 8 days and found a different hotel 3 days later,... More

The staff was amazing, the room was clean, the breakfast was awesome and not expensive! You definitely need a vehicle if you plan on heading to the zoo, COSI or other family friendly things as they are about10 miles away.

Good, solid hotel, excellent choice for visiting OSU. Other than that, a little out of the way for rest of Columbus and is not feasible without a car, as their shuttle is limited to running within a 3-mile radius - nowhere near downtown.

Excellent hotel to stay in when visiting Ohio State University. Room was clean and comfortable, staff was friendly and the shuttle bus took me right to my destination. Breakfast was an inexpensive add-on and very worthwhile.

I am a diamond member with Hilton and I was disappointed with my stay at this hotel. The night staff acted put off when asking them for something. The room smelled like urine and just seemed dirty! It was not a nice hotel. Thank goodness I only stayed one night!
