“Can't find a bad thing to say”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

My group stayed at this Springhill for two nights last week while we attended Rock on the Range in Columbus. We arrived very early (long before check in) and would not be able to return to the hotel until after midnight. The front desk clerk offered to put a note on the reservation that we would be back after midnight to make sure the room was not given away. When we returned later that night the very friendly (and pretty) night clerk checked us in with no problem and we were off to our rooms within minutes. She also asked us how the concerts were each night when we got in which was very nice and unexpected.

The room itself was outstanding. The queen beds made us realize how bad our beds and home were and we slept like babies. The separate shower and toilet rooms made getting ready in the morning much easier than if we had to wait for each other to finish. The room also had a very comfortable couch, a mini fridge and a microwave which would have been very useful had we spent more time at the hotel. The room was extremely clean also. I always do a thorough check of the rooms and this one was without a doubt one of the cleanest I’ve ever been in.

The breakfast offered each morning was perfect to get us started: eggs, sausage, pastries, breads, waffles, oatmeal, cereal, etc. There was also plenty of seating available each morning so no one felt rushed while eating.

There was also a very nice patio out front with a little water fall and fire pit which we did not get to enjoy due to it being cold and rainy while we were there.

All in all I was very impressed with this hotel and I would be happy to stay there again next time I am in Columbus.

Stayed here for one night on a business trip. Hotel was EXTREMELY clean, quiet, and nice. Only issue I had was the drain in the shower was extremely slow.

Suites have an interesting setup - toilet & small sink in one cutaway, with the shower & bigger sink inside other bathroom cutaway. Nice layout for business travelers.

Closeby to restaurants & bars & campus.

I'd stay here again.

Friendly and helpful staff. Satisfactory breakfast (wife liked the oatmeal). Well configured suite. But very noisy AC - 3rd floor at rear. Very convenient location near OSU, good restaurants, and excellent bike paths.

If you have university business, this is a great location. Plenty of room, good restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Breakfast was good although the same food each morning. Definitely recommended.

This is exactly what we needed! We wanted to be away just for a couple of days and the time was great :-) The staff, Carmen, Vickie and the two young men that work the evening shift were the most pleasant staff we have ever encountered in hotel personnel especially after having been treated POORLY by the RENAISSANCE HOTEL DOWNTON COLUMBUS...The layout was convenient for us, shower and sink on one side and another sink on the other. We absolutely loved our stay and will be back.

We were in Columbus for a hockey game and college visit so we chose this hotel for the convenient location near both OSU and Nationwide Arena. Springhill Suites is among our favorite brands (Hyatt Place and Hampton Suites, too) because we like having an extra sitting area in our rooms.

One thing we really like about many Springhill Suite hotels is the "split" bathroom where the shower and a sink are in one private area and the toilet and an additional sink are in another area. This hotel offers this kind of layout and it's really nice for a family traveling with older children, teens or young adults because it allows two people to be in different bathroom areas at once when getting ready.

The staff was welcoming & friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Another bonus at this hotel was the free shuttle to Nationwide Arena for the hockey game. We signed up for a departure time when we checked in and the driver dropped seven of us off at the front door of the arena. Sadly, the shuttle service ends at 10:00 PM so we had to take a taxi back to the hotel but it was only $15 including tip for three passengers. So much less hassle than driving ourselves, finding a parking spot, walking to the arena and fighting traffic!

The morning buffet was fresh & tasty, consisting primarily of standard continental fare plus scrambled eggs and sausage. The hotel was busy during our stay so we had to wait for food to be refilled a couple of times.

Free parking was plentiful in the lot around the hotel.

This is a great location with nice amenities that I'd recommend to anyone wanting a hotel close to OSU or Nationwide Arena.

But...be aware that train tracks run down the backside of the property and if you are a light sleeper then you may be awakened a couple times per night!

Having said that, the problem I feared was not too bad for me (I had last room in the corridor right at the tracks) and it did not keep me up.

Room was large, very clean and comfortable, and breakfast was nice with a pleasant seating area and constant refreshment of items. Plus coffee was available all day :-)

Fitness room looked useful (but I didn't) with an indoor pool.

Desk staff were very pleasant and helpful.

An enjoyable place to stay, even with the trains, especially if you need to work at OSU or the James Medical Centre.

Room Tip: Avoid the track-side rooms if trains keep you awake, but there were generally only 2-3 per night.
