Impressed with look of hotel. Breakfast very good and room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The Bly problem, and it was minor, was that our door was very difficult to open from both in and outside. This would be a five other than this problem. Pool and workout room were also very nice. My next stay in Columbus will definitely... More

When we arrived, we were pleased to find we had been upgraded to a suite for our anniversary! The woman at the desk was so, so kind and helpful. Once we checked into our spacious, clean, and cool suite complete with desk, couch, and HUGE bathroom space, we changed into our swimming suits. We were able to relax in the... More

This is a very nice hotel. The pool is great for young children. Hampton in had a very nice breakfast buffet (especially loved the cinnamon rolls). And the location was great. We had visited the zoo that day and the next we went to the American Girl Doll store. The room was clean, and the beds comfortable.

I booked a room there as part of a surprise weekend for my husband. The hotel staff was amazing. They even offered to help in any way to maintain the surprise. Nice breakfast area with friendly staff. We only stayed one night but it was worth it.

I stayed at the Hampton Inn for one night with my husband and two daughters (9 and 6) following the Ohio State Game, and we’d definitely go back. The location itself is great. It’s on a “hotel row” of sorts, just moments from Polaris. Polaris Fashion Place mall is fantastic and so is the “strip” it’s on – countless retailers... More

My mom, daughter and I enjoyed a back-to-school shopping trip to Columbus in August. We picked this Hampton Inn because of it's fabulous location just across form the Polaris mall and all of the other shopping nearby. We'll return to this Hampton Inn because of the comfortable beds, clean rooms and friendly / service-oriented staff! Thank you Hampton!

The room was extremely clean and fresh. The updated amenities were great – including free in-room wifi and charging stations for various electronics. The hotel was very quiet and the room was in a very convenient location. The staff was very friendly and handled any questions with confidence. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We combed through TA reviews for central Ohio to find a nice hotel with a good indoor pool for an overnight stay with our granddaughter en route from the Midwest to the East Coast. The Hampton Polaris was the perfect choice. Its pool is very large as hotel pools go, and it had a nice hot tub adjacent. We arrived... More

This hotel is relatively new and is sparklingly clean and tidy. The staff are wonderfully helpful giving directions which cut out rush hour traffic when we wanted to go to the mall.
