This may just be the best Hilton I have stayed in so far. The size is nice, not overwhelming. For my first time in Columbus the location is great!! There is a bridge to the convention center for those staying for business like myself. Happy hour in the lounge is great. Drinks are strong and creative, and the food portions... More

We hope to welcome you back as well! As you mentioned, the skybridge is convenient when going to/from the convention center. We’re glad to hear you enjoyed the lounge and food options at Gallerie. Can’t go wrong with Jeni’s either, and it’s now available in the coffee shop! More

We stayed here on business and I can tell you it was the very best we have ever stayed at. The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. The media rooms were also very nice and clean. Crisp, fresh and new just the way we like it!!

We stayed here, as we had tickets to the Ohio State game, which we knew would end late. I visit Columbus on a fairly regular basis and was pretty amazed at how quickly this hotel popped up. When my husband said we were staying at the Hilton downtown, I said "What Hilton downtown?" The hotel itself is very modern looking... More

Thank you for your feedback! We are approaching our 2-year anniversary, so we are still a fairly new property. The glass on the south end of the hotel (near the train tracks) is 3-paned so when the trains do come by daily, it’s almost unnoticeable. It sounds like you had an enjoyable stay and we appreciate your comments on the... More

When you pull up front, the curb appeal is underwhelming. Don't let that fool you, this is an incredibly modern, upscale hotel with all the modern amenities. The rooms are very tastefully appointed with clean, crisp, modern decor. Love the sliding natural wood and glass door to the bathroom, BTW. Every possible computer hookup, mini fridge and coffee pot.

We were part of a group reservation for a buckeye football game visit, had a great time, close but not too close to campus. Would gladly recommend to others. Close to downtown Columbus and convention center as well.

Great location. Clean. Quiet. Great and helpful staff. An A+ to the Security Dept. that located something of ours we didn't know we had lost. They contacted us to confirm it was ours and mailed it back to us.

My son and I stayed here for the USU vs. VT game in Sept. We self parked and found our way to the impressive lobby. The front desk person was extremely nice and we quickly received our room key for 508. The room was very modern and clean with plenty of space. The beds were very comfortable. The window looked...

I stayed in room with 2 queen beds. It was a very modern, upscale, beautiful room. The lighting was practical but also added quite ambiance. It was probably not the plushest, but the most pleasant room I've stayed in

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip recently and I would definitely stay here again when I come back to Columbus. The Front Desk Manager, Sarah, is fantastic and went out of her way to make good for an error that the hotels made. She really went over and above to ensure I was happy. For this reason,... More

I stay in Hiltons all year long, so I'm very familiar with the brand and have many other experiences to draw from for comparisons. This was a shorter stay for me during a convention, but in wish I could have stayed longer. The entire hotel was in perfect condition. Despite being sold out, the rooms were very quiet. The internet... More
