Used to go to The Ohio State University for college and the apartment I used to stay is in close proximity. This HIE never used to exist then (I asked the lady at front and she said they built this in 2010). There are so many hotels nearby and this place is so close to the University, Downtown and the stadium for games. Coming back to the hotel, the rooms are so neat and clean. I got this huge room, elegant looking with excellent painting on the wall. The TV's were new and flat screen. Took care of rooms every day, clean bathrooms, huge space for dresses. Did not get a chance to try their breakfast, but expecting a typical HIE station (not sure though). There are so many food options nearby (literally walking distance); like Subway, McD, Burger King, a Kebab place and Canes (Chicken fingers place, awesome one!). Grocery store 'Kroger' is also few minutes walk from this place. There is public transportation right in front of the hotel that can take you to the University and other nearby places. Since it is a University town, the public transportation is pretty decent. This place is awesome and will come back and stay here if I ever get a chance to go back to Columbus.
