I had switched my hotel twice because friends of mine from Ohio told me that the other two were in bad locations, and I'm sure glad that I did. I had never been to Columbus before and was traveling alone to attend a week long course at Ohio State. This hotel was in a great location. Catching a bus to OSU was easy. Many of the places I wanted to see as a tourist were easy to walk to such as Short North, the Art Museum and the North Market. I would suggest going to Jeni's for ice cream and the Topiary garden for a look at "Sunday in the Park". For the hotel itself, the staff were helpful and the newly renovated top floors are where you want to be. I had a beautiful view of downtown, and my room felt very modern. I felt safe there, mainly because of the indoor corridors which makes it seem more like a hotel than a motel. There are other hotels in the area that have on-site fitness centers, pools and better breakfasts, but for the price, this was great.
