The Hilton Columbus Downtown in the Arena District is beautiful and modern. The wife and I stayed for a night in May after a concert at LC Pavilion. Which, if you happen to be staying for the same reason, is only a few short blocks from the Hotel. The interior of the hotel is very contemporary, and while the lobby... More

Thank you for your thoughtful review. We are fortunate to be located near the LC and so many restaurants and bars within walking distance. Parking charges for a downtown urban location are standard in all major cities due to the cost of real estate to house a garage as opposed to a suburban open lot. Thank you for choosing the... More

First of all, this Hilton is beautiful! The rooms are very spacious, clean, and have a generous amount of towels and pillows. The service has been excellent. I had the best nights sleep I've ever had in a hotel. My co-worker got here earlier and had dinner and said that the food was good as well. I'm sure I'll be... More

The following is a very fair & accurate evaluation of our stay at this hotel. The staff was very professional, accommodating and efficient, especially Madison & Chrissy. The rooms were very well kept and maintained. Very clean and very conveniently located in the middle of many restaurants and attractions to choose from. The price of $189 for a king suite... More

I was on a one-day business trip to downtown Columbus, Ohio. The very pleasant stay at Hilton was unforgettable. The staff was gracious and very pleasant to work with. They have earned my loyalty. It was an ideal example of what great customer service should be like.

The Hilton downtown Columbus is absolutely gorgeous. Such incredible attention to detail and everyone is very attentive. Lovely bar and restaurant located on the second level. Lighted glass floor skywalk over High Street gives a fun view of the short north experience. This hotel is open an open atrium concept to the top floor skylight, with open hallways up to... More

Love, love,love the Hilton Downton Columbus - it's fun, glamorous, the building is beautiful, the pool super neat. I love the lobby with the huge staircase, the lounge area on the 2nd floor where people hang out,laugh and talk. Really a great place. BUT still not a great choice for healthy eaters at the restaurant -not much creativity on the... More

I just spent two nights at this new-ish property and had a great experience. The hotel was beautiful, the staff was above-and-beyond helpful, polite and personable, and the event spaces were top-notch. Even the catering was better than average (for hotel food).

Excellent hotel, located conveniently downtown to all major event, food and entertainment. Updated throughout and comfortable. Clean, well-managed and staffed. The bar and restaurant were a good value for a downtown hotel. The lobby was comfortable with plenty of area for conversation, relaxing and being with friends.
