“Gorgeous Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2008

Beautiful hotel in a well developed area.

Service was great, rooms clean.

We enjoyed our stay for the most part but I was expecting more for my Birthday celebration like maybe some cookies, a card, a bottle of water, a baloon or something.

The charges for Internet in the computer office room were outrageous and the restaurant did not offer to much of a selection for breakfast.

Hotel staff was very hospitable and attending. Overall I would say it was a great stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2008

AC POWER Plenty throughout the room, whoever designed the room truly had the business traveler in mind.

BATHROOM Large, nicely decorated. Shower was small, but walk-in with a rain shower head at an angle. I liked it a great deal, but some could feel claustrophobic in it.

BEDDING Hilton's latest bedding, very comfy.

CLEANLINESS Found this place to be immaculate, brand new, no cleanliness issues.

INTERNET $9.95 charge (September of 2008). Both wired and wifi, whoever designed the room was smart in not placing the internet wired RJ-45 connections on the floor. They're at desk height at the business table, easy to access without having to crawl under the desk, and move furniture to get to it.

LOBBY Very sleek, and stylish. Warm, inviting colors, and a gas fireplace. To the left of the entrance is check-in, to the right is an open bar area. Elevators at each end of the hotel.

PARKING Plenty of spaces on this wide open expanse.

POOL Did not visit, but they have a small indoor pool.

STAFF Very pleasant, quick Zip-In checkin with no issues, minimal contact with staff.

TELEVISION Digital, widescreen LCD televisions with a small selection of HDTV channels. Both ESPNs in HD, HBO HD, a few other national networks and I believe every local Columbus affiliate other than the NBC affiliate in HD.


  • Liked — New hotel, smart design
  • Disliked — No complaints.
