I booked a room at this hotel for my sister as a gift. The hotel was right near the church and park where we had the ceremony so wanted something close. That was the goal however what I got for my money is most priceless. John the concierge delivered champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to their room after they checked... More

Not only was I impressed with the facility, however their room product was exception. The best reason to stay here is the customer service. It's been a long time since I've met an exceptional team that looks to exceed expectations. At one points I was told, "There are many reasons I am proud to work for the Hilton, a guest's... More

I had a great stay at this hotel recently. It feels very modern, with just the right touch of fun, but still very polished. I loved the local art placed throughout the hotel. The room was clean and functional, with plenty of outlets-which most hotels do their best to hide. I'd definitely stay here again!

We’re glad you noticed the power outlets – that was a design feature we thought was necessary especially for business travelers. The art collection features all local artists and is seen in the hotel’s public spaces as well as guest rooms. Thank you for your comments! More

Nice, newer, modern, and just what you would expect from a primarily convention driven hotel in Columbus. Plenty of nice restaurants within walking distance, a spate of young adult bars in the Arena district are behind the hotel, and the artsy Short North is also nearby. One of my favorite locations to visit when on business trips.

This hotel has everything you would expect in a higher end hotel--it's gorgeous, great customer service, and a convenient walkway to the Convention Center. Room service was fast and friendly and the rooms are very nice and very comfortable. There was a discrepancy on my bill regarding parking which they took care of immediately and did not give me any... More

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in one of the Executive-level rooms. I chose this hotel because of its location (within walking distance of downtown Columbus, but also convenient for Ohio State University, access to I-70 and I-71) and this worked out beautifully. The downside of this downtown location is of course the valet parking, but i must... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Built by the city and county and connected to the convention center, the hotel was developed to drive group business to the area which includes professional organizations and those more leisure or social oriented such as the religious youth organization you encountered. Such groups require special attention and planning on... More

Stayed here for a week long business stay for a conference at the GCCC. Excellent access through the 2nd floor walkway to the conference hall. Hotel staff is very nice and helpful.

Thank you for your review. As you mentioned, the hotel and Convention Center is connected via skybridge and we’re glad you found that to be convenient. An active hotel guest room key is required to access the fitness facility, it is not open to the public. The key card must be placed on the door for it to be unlocked... More

I have used this hotel as an in-town overnight when I've wanted to explore the Short North with friends and family without having to worry about a late night drive home to the north suburbs of Columbus. It is an absolutely gorgeous property with comfortable rooms and is perfectly located in downtown Columbus to not only visit great restaurants and... More

A wonderful hotel for business (or pleasure) purposes. You're right in the heart of action in Columbus - close to the Arena District and to the Arts District in Columbus. Just a short trip to the State Capitol and to The Ohio State University. Generally, when I'm there, I park the car and take advantage of the wide selection of... More

Thank you for your review. We’re fortunate to be centrally located near the vibrant areas of downtown, such as the Short North and Arena District as you mentioned.

Stayed here a couple weeks ago for one night. The hotel staff was great, and the facilities/ room was very clean and nice. The room was very sleek and comfortable. I would recommend this hotel if you are staying downtown, they do a great job upholding the Hilton name.
