“FANTASTIC PROPERTY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Very attentive and hospitable staff. Appears to be a new property with excellent maintenance. Rooms are quiet, comfortable, spacious, and well appointed. Free breakfast. Very nice indoor pool and gym. Free parking (covered) just across the driveway. Buckeye Hall of Fame Grill is right next door.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be desirable.

Room was clean and we enjoyed the free breakfast (I would not say the food was wonderful, but enough choices that everyone should be able to find something). Also nice that parking is free in the adjacent lot. It looks as though the hotel does have a shuttle but you would probably need a car; hotel is part of a newer development that is a little isolated (make sure to double check directions). There is a restaurant and a deli just next door that you can walk to.

We stayed again at the Hyatt Place for our yearly trip to the All American Quarter Horse Congress and it was great. The staff is very friendly and helpful. TThe beds are probably some of the most comfortable I've experienced. The location is very convenient to the Congress and my daughter and I felt very safe coming in and out at all hours such as we have to do when riding, You are really just about 5 minutes from the showgrounds. i also love the fact that you can get a quick meal at any time. Once again a wonderful experience. We will be back!!

This hotel knows how to treat its travelers! We arrived late and were greeted by friendly staff. Love the late hours of the little cafe. Parking was extremely convenient. Great room!!! And extremely comfie bed!!

The morning breakfast buffet was better than I've ever experienced -- and I've been to many hotels. Can't say enough about the place!

I enjoy Hyatt Place hotels. They are all exactly alike and are pretty nice. Great location, easy to get to, free covered parking across the street/driveway. The Buckeye Bar next door had nice outdoor seating and a good menu. Food was decent, a little overpriced.
The hotel has an indoor pool which was nice, well maintained. Lots of fluffy towels.
Rooms were a decent size, nice to have the mini fridge, a microwave would be even nicer. Lots of space but no place to hang a coat. Closet is set up strange, very small, door doesn't open all they way. Drawers in the dressing area if needed.
Hard to fall asleep on a Sat night with the noise from the bar next door. Just turn on the AC fan. And use the nice blanket provided in the room to cover up when you freeze.
Breakfast was OK, not as good as I have had at other properties.
Soap and shampoo THE WORST SMELLING STUFF I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED!!!!! Take your own soaps!!!!!

The Hyatt Place Columbus OSU is a newish hotel (built in 2009). It is located about 1 mile from downtown Columbus and the commute to and from is simple and easy. The rooms are large, beautiful and modern. I appreciated the free wi-fi and the convenience ports for computers, and other electronics. The staff were all wonderful (professional, gracious and had a genuine service based mindset). This hotel serves a continental breakfast (which actually was amazing given that you get egg McMuffin like breakfast sandwiches, tons of fresh fruit, yogurt, cottage cheese, waffles, bagels, coffee, teas, juices, etc... It was easily one of the best "free" breakfasts I'd ever experienced. Near the front desk is a coffee bar which also sells delicious pastries. There is a pool & fitness room (which unfortunately I didn't have time to enjoy as I was at a conference). We paid $134 a night which made this an AMAZING value. If you're visiting Columbus and are going to be near the downtown area, you must try this phenomenal hotel.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 2nd floor. I can't comment about the other ones, but our room (a suite actually...

Great little hotel in a newly developed strip near OSU. We had an okay view of Columbus (not exactly NYC, but whatever) and could see trains pass by in the distance and a few CMH planes fly overhead.

The rooms are new, quite large, and well-conceived. There’s a living room study combo area (large desk) slightly separated from the main bedroom, decent sized dressing area, and respectable bathroom. Good lighting throughout. Bedding was new, and super plush Sealy Posturepedic pillowtop mattresses were very comfortable (although I wish they had foam instead of feather pillows). Free wireless is strong and secure. Parking, local calls, and fresh fruit are also free. Large LG flat screen TV. No bed bugs (we always check, especially around Columbus). Rooms are nicely equipped with bumpy “massage” soap, face soap, shampoo, conditioner, and even Aqua Fresh toothpaste. Pleasant service downstairs. The women on duty (especially Melissa) were responsive and genuine.

Breakfast was different than usual but still very good: Starbucks coffee, choice of juices, the usual sugary pastries, oatmeal with all the fixings, some cut fruit, and three types of homemade breakfast sandwiches.

Respectable pool could be a tad warmer (no jacuzzi). Still, it's well-maintained and certainly better than nothing.

Even the color coordination was remarkable. I liked the Hyatt orange in the rooms, on the walls, and even on the attire worn by staff. There’s a certain amount of class here that you just don’t find elsewhere.

Suggestion to management: get rid of uncovered glasses in the hotel room. Studies have shown that housekeeping does a poor job with hygiene. Nobody knows if our cups are fresh out of the dishwasher, “cleaned” with the same towel that was used to wipe toilets, or, in our case, masking residue of a previous tenant’s drink.

All in all though, hard to complain about much here. Good job, Hyatt Place!

Room Tip: Hyatt Place Columbus/OSU only requires 5000 Hyatt Points. That's a great deal if you have some...
