There is nothing in particular wrong with The Lofts. Our room was pretty sizable for a downtown space, high ceilings, nice old windows, and walking distance to many restaurants in the Arena District. It as clean and there were plenty of towels. But, for a boutique hotel, the "look" doesn't completely match the idea. The furniture is reminiscent of a... More

We were in town for a tour of Ohio State so we only stayed one night. The room was really big with a separate seating area with a couch, chair and tv. This area was far enough away from the beds so you could watch tv and not disturb people who were in bed sleeping. We ordered room service at... More

A room was booked for me in another hotel that was deplorable. Needed something nice, roomy and downtown on the fly. The price was perfect and the room was huge. The hotel is lovely, great historical photos and feel.

Loved this hotel. It had a very unique boutique style. The rooms were huge! They had high ceilings, and brick walls. It was right across the street from the Convention Center where we had to be on and off all weekend. Serve yourself morning coffee was in the reception area and the restaurant Max and Emma's was connected. We ate... More

Interesting refurb of an old building. Industrial cool. But... No front desk--you have to go across the street to check-in at the Crowne Plaza, something you find out after you are already in the building. The elevator lights didn't work. The rooms a/c was loud. No services. A bit creepy with no one around. Not safe with no control over... More

i stayed here a number of times in the past and loved the design. Rooms are spacious and modern. This time however, the heating was noisy and long to get to temperature. There were nowhere near enough outlets for easy device charging and finally, there was no hot water in the morning. It felt a bit shabby and tired. Even... More

We stayed for three days while visiting the University with our son. The weather was cold so we needed the heat, which worked well enough, but was noisy and never shut off the whole time we were there. Rooms are enormous but a bit dark at night due to limited lighting. Bathrooms were very nice. We ordered room service from... More
