Good, basic hotel - very clean and reasonably comfortable. One of the best showers ever! The only suggestion I have for this property is that they disallow smoking by the front entry. Every time I went in or out, no matter what hour of day or night, there were at least five people hanging around the front door, smoking. Very... More

The woman who works the front desk Annette is a wonderful woman. She is very polite and a joy to be around. I don't file compliments often but this woman is a angel(by far the sweetest of anyone I've met of any hotel staff) and I think everyone should know! God bless her!

Amazingly quiet given all the celebrations going on! Rooms were clean. There is a great variety at breakfast including lower calorie items like hard boiled eggs and fresh fruit. Suggest higher floor rooms. There was a small indoor pool and hot tub. There was a clean work out room with new machines.

I have stayed here many times and it just gets better. The staff, especially Lee at the front desk is very courteous and helpful. The hotel is very clean, the beds extremely comfortable and the breakfast is fantastic.

Stayed there for two nights last week while attending a conference down the road at the Fawcett center. Very convenient location near The Ohio State University and not far from the downtown area. The room was very clean, the bed very comfortable and the room very well maintained. The staff was very courteous. Plenty of parking. Only minor negative was... More

We visited this hotel for the OSU Spring game, the location was great. We walked to and from the stadium with no problems at all. There are stores and a couple places to eat close by. The hotel was very clean, our 2 bedroom suite was very spacious and the breakfast was very good. I had read reviews that people... More

We picked this hire for its proximity to OSU. My son and his best friend and his mom and I drove up for a campus visit over spring break. The rooms were huge, well appointed and clean and modern. There is some road noise through the window but it actually comes across like white noise to me and was soothing.... More

My wife and I were in Columbus and we stayed here. Our business had us near the OSU campus. The hotel is clean quiet and the staff willing to help as needed. The rooms are quiet and it has free wireless. We have stayed here before and probably will again.

Quick check in and out. Hotel staff was very friendly. The fitness room was open 24 hours, the breakfast selection was excellent (bacon, eggs, sausage, fruit, cereal, muffins, etc.), and the room was very clean
