Very friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Excellent location for visiting Short North, Huntington Park, the Arena District and other great places. TV reception wasn't great but we weren't there to watch tv.

Visited as a spectator to State Volleyball tourney. The hotel was filled with girls and their families and it was fun and active. The staff was extremely helpful and welcoming, and made everyone feel comforbable even with the increased activities and flying volleyballs on the lawn.

The room it's self had a 7ft ceiling when you enter the room. The bathroom toilet flush so slow you could also hear the guest in the shower from the other room when you were in the bathroom also the drain was packed with hair from other guests. The AC unit in the room wouldn't shut off the tv picture... More

The rooms are good, good location, and the breakfast next door which is linked to the hotel is friendly and provides a good start to the day. Front desk service staff don't seem to want to be at work. They didn't welcome me to the hotel, just took my credit card, gave me my key and said thanks. I even... More

Wonderful facility for wedding guests in downtown. Nice coffee shop & bar conveniently located in lobby. Bridal suite was huge. Rose petals & champagne were special added touches. Heather was especially helpful setting up shuttle to/from wedding venue for guests & made it easy to host morning after get-together in lobby. Everyone had good time!

This is one of the few downtown Columbus, Ohio properties with a heated indoor pool, and it's attached to a "Max & Erma's" restaurant. If you look at the pictures on their website, you will be severely disappointed, as was my family. I am the swimmer, so a pool was a plus until you got to it in the sub-basement.... More
