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

I chose this hotel because it is within walking distance to the Schottenstein Center, where many concerts are held. Room was comfortable and clean; I didn't even hear the heater running. Staff was very helpful. The free breakfast was good and plentiful. I will definitely come back!
