“Beautiful property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

A very nice place to relax and sometimes socialize with the guests in the common areas. Good food and drinks available. Lots of business travelers. Secure parking and a security guard at night. Staff is friendly and helpful. I have been here 15+ times with no issues. Rooms have full ammenities included.

I am happy to supply this review to thank the Hilton Garden Inn. My husband and daughter were actually unable to enjoy their reservation at this hotel due to a very last minute flight cancellation. The hotel staff was most helpful in making sure we were not charged for the night my family was unable to stay.. I am sure they are just as helpful to guests who are able to stay at this property.

I wasn't sure what to expect - I had picked this hotel from a list of four recommendations, based on a brief review of the places, with a common factor that they were close to the OSU campus. I wasn't disappointed. The two days I stayed here, I had a wonderful time. I felt very welcome, and room had a very comfortable environment.

This is a conveniently located, clean and pleasant hotel with a very nice fitness room. The breakfast is good. Probably the cold would be better (and cheaper) depending on what you eat. My omelet was done just right. Would stay here again.

It's worth paying a little extra for the comfy beds, fitness center, and nutritious breakfast at the Hilton Garden Inn-University in Columbus, OH. Use of the business center or in-room wi-fi is also a plus if you don't want to lug a laptop around. I've been visiting family members in the area regularly for years, and after this hotel was built it became my favorite. The staff members are helpful and courteous, and I always feel welcome.

The staff at this hotel is very caring, compassionate and aiming to please. They are almost like
family and no problem is too big or difficult for them to solve. Case in point, my wife left her favorite fruit storage bag in the Fridge when we left. The maintenance staff is mailing it back
lickety-split that is service! The breakfasts are wonderful along with a very courteous, friendly staff at the main desk. I cannot say enough good things about the hotel except to say that the hotel is extremely well-run and it could serve as a model for other hotels!

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms they are all very conducive to one's needs!

Loads of parking. Easy access to OSU, Friendly staff. Beautiful atrium lobby. All at a reasonable price. Stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for several days for my son's graduation from pharmacy school at OSU. Although I understand the economics, an airport shuttle would have been the cherry on top of the cake.
Very reasonably priced dining area in the lobby area with a full bar and flatscreens.There seems to be somewhat limited cable access in some of the rooms. This might be significant during professional playoffs. This may seem picky but I would check at the desk prior to selecting a room.
No Starbucks or Coffee Bean within walking distance!

I would certainly stay here next time I am in Columbus.

Room Tip: As always, away from the elevators and the ice machine. Rooms facing the parking area give a great v...
