My stay was on Saturday, August 18th while in Columbus to attend a gala at the Natl Infantry Museum & Soldier Ctr. The 1st thing I noticed upon entering the hotel was the clean & bright lobby. Off the main lobby were some nice meeting rooms. The owner, Duke Doubleday, has personalized the showcase in the lobby area by displaying letters, photographs, awards, and patriotic items associated with his military career and his work with military families. Books of interest are also available to be checked out by guests. The first floor has a nice laundry area and exercise room. My room was on the first floor and had a very nice view of the beautiful salt-water pool and outdoor pavilion with 2 outdoor grills and attractive yard furniture. A veranda runs the length of one side of the hotel and is furnished with rocking chairs and ceiling fans, and the large oak trees provide nice shade. My room was clean, comfortable & quiet, and I would definitely recommend this hotel for families who need the convenience of a kitchenette. The pleasant outdoor area is a gathering place for families who are visiting their loved ones at Ft. Benning and allows them to mingle with other guests. It was nice to see the warm camaraderie among families and soldiers. This hotel is a good bargain with some better-than-expected amenities.
