I wasn't expecting much from a "Holiday Inn" but this one excelled on many levels. First, the staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. Secondly, the hotel is in a very convenient location to the university and Ohio State Medical Center which is why we were there, and several close by restaurants including Bob Evans and some others. Also, it has a shuttle which take you for free within a two mile radius to other locations. The hotel was clean, had nice design features and felt like a "Hampton Inn" in some ways, others not. They are definitely on the right track but need some improvement, particularly breakfast. Also, we reserved a "one bedroom suite" which turned out to be a long room which included a sitting area with pull out sofa, table and two chairs, fridge, microwave... a bit misleading since no separate room or divider from the bed area. However, it was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was subpar. No waffle maker like Hampton and eggs were awful. Not many choices other than cereal and breads, poor selection of muffins, some yogurt. Other than the breakfast, can't go wrong with this property. The staff were particularly well trained and friendly. Thumbs up to Holiday Inn. Now, work on that breakfast!
