“One of the best newer and affordable hotels out there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I really enjoy this chain of hotels. They are newer, super clean, comfortable, and roomy. The workout room is much nicer than most hotel chains and the pool/hot tub are very nice. The breakfast is too pricey for what it is. Other Cambria's (like Noblesville, IN) have better breakfast than this one and make fresh omelettes. There better options in the area for breakfast. The staff at this hotel has changed quite often because I stay here a lot for business. Some are great, some-not so much.. But overall, the hotel is well kept and one of the best in the area.

Room Tip: They are semi-suites, not ALL suites with separate rooms. Most rooms have a separated little living...

My husband and I just stayed at this hotel for his birthday this past weekend. We have been to Columbus many times but have never stayed at the Cambria Suites. We decided to stay here because it was one of the choices to redeem our Airline points on. We were a bit leery when we first got to the exit for the hotel because it was closed due to the Cabella's grand opening (cabella's is pretty much in there parking lot) but we were happy to see a hotel attendant blocking their lot entrance and only letting hotel customers park there so we had a good experience right from the start. The lobby was very clean and modern and the room the same, for the price, it was one of the cleanest & modern room we have ever stayed in. It had a king size bed, separated by a decorative wall and a couch and chair in the he living area. It also had a small fridge to keep drinks in. The bathroom was also clean and modern, with a vessel sink and tile walk in shower...also they had nice little bath and body works soaps. Over all this will be our new place to stay when we visit Columbus, and for first timers you can't beat the location, easy to find of I-71, close to Polaris mall and a ton of delicious restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the pond

I want to first say I am an Elite Diamond member of the choice brand and have nothing but love for the brand, never been happier even as I am an equal member at 2 other brands. I point this out to describe the excitement I was feeling to get to stay at the Cambria Suites I have had heard so much about. So much that I planned this to accomodate the romantic plans for my wife and I as well as the neat accomodations I could provide a 7 year old with the mirage of her own big girl room. This was to be a trip of memories for the whole family and I was going to look like a champ. Instead I was made to look like the Chump. I booked this room over 2 months in advance knowing we would be in town for a national championship competition for my daughter. I asked management to help arrange a customary upgrade at my level to a particular room,either the hot tub"for romantic purposes" or the room with the additional bedroom for the daughter to feel like a big girl. Either one was assured to me by Chad the manager, all I had to do was call in to choice and book it first and spend 50,000 points( this =$7500 I have spent on business for the last 5 months) and book a regular room and they would upgrade it at time of arrival. I took a leap of faith and did so. 2 months go by and its the big trip, we are all excited. I get to check in and the fun begins. Kerry the front desk personel, has me in a regular room for the wrong amount of nights. I bring the notes that "are on the copy of the confirmation" to her attention, and that I was supposed to get another room. She develops a rude attitude and proceeds to tell me that" Cambria Suites" wouldnt consider upgrades. I explained I was an elite diamond member and already spoke to management, she cut me off and said " we have our policies and being a diamond member doesnt matter here this isnt something we are going to do. I told her she was wrong and it was in the notes, she continued to argue and said we have our policies and we stick to them. I suppose she read the notes and saw that I wasnt a liar and proceeded to backtrac and say we already gave you an upgrade, we gave you a room with a pull out couch. I replied an upgrade, as compared to my daughter sleeping on the floor? She asked did I want that or not, at this point, I couldnt see straight and just wanted my family to get settled. We get to the room and the upgrade to the pull out couch didnt have bedding, so I called down and never guess who brought it up. At this time my wife pointed out to her that the fridge didnt work and this was a concern given we had the competition to attend at 4 am and had no time to purchase the hotels $10 breakfast, she stated, its fine "All of our fridges work perfect in our hotel, give it time", we know what happened, the fridge didnt work and now I was looking for breakfast for my child at 4 am due to everything going bad. I contacted choice after our stay, they are awesome, they got on it, talked to the manager which was the original one chad, and said he is calling me back tonight to resolve this, they are ashamed and their policy says if anything isnt pleasing its on them. He never called until the next day afternoon after I called to choice back to let them know he never called as they instructed. when he did, He actually took kerrys side saying he spoke with her, she claimed to offer us other rooms, none of this happened, they always give upgrades, and sorry for any miscommunication but nothing I can do for you "but promise if I ever stay with them again he would continue to provide me with the service they take pride in" obviously I will not give them the option to serve me again with that stance as I explained to him. Side note maybe this is a bad one in the bunch, choice did take care of me out of respect, which is obvious not what you will receive from this destination.

My wife and I stayed at the Cambria Suites near Polaris in Columbus and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nice, spacious room with a king-sized bed and a separate sitting area. The staff at the desk was also very helpful. We got a good price because we stayed on Friday and Saturday. I think they target business travelers who stay during the week.

We booked this for my husband's HS reunion, and travelled with our two girls.

The place is fairly new, so looked very nice. Attractive lobby, attractive rooms.

Breakfast in the lobby was very mediocre, especially for the price. Shells in the scrambled eggs always turn me off, and the rest wasn't much more exciting.

My biggest beef was the fact that these are not actual "suites". No separate bedrooms, no door closing off the rest of the room. Just a partition to section off the bed area. Not ideal when your kids are on the sleeper sofa in the other area.

When "Suites" is part of the title, you'd expect them to be just that.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you were disappointed with our breakfast . I have spoken to our kitchen staff to ensure this does not reoccur. I would also like to apologize that our standard suite was not what you expected. We do offer a two room suite and hope that when you return you will try one these.

My husband and i came to this hotel over Presidents Day long weekend, we checked in and had to wait while they were busy answering their telephones...we got a room on the first floor, amd walked i to the room and it smelled like crap, literally.. Went out to front desk and husband explained either someone had used the facilities or there was a sewer problem. Front desk contacted the housekeeping dept. and they verified all rooms on first floor had an odor.. I was so grossed out, i wanted to leave and change hotels but gave another room a try.. There is nothing fancy about this hotel, and we wont be back.. Especially since they didnt offer to upgrade our room for free or nothing. Disturbed they know about sewer problem but still rent out first floor rooms..

The staff was friendly and the room nicely decorated but I found it expensive compared to similar hotels. I did not find the room to be particularly quiet as the foot traffic from the floor above sounded like a small herd of small elephants running around. Happily the noise didn't persist past 10 pm. There was analog but few digital TV stations, giving everything a fuzzy look. Overall the room was clean but finding a hair that is not one's own in a hotel bathroom (It was between the bathmat and the tub ) is just unpleasant. Lastly, I think that breakfast should be included.
