Great location to airport and timely shuttle. Staff are friendly and hotel is clean and safe. Business Center doesn't exist. It consists of a computer in a closet behind the reception desk. Very uncomfortable.

Hello Joni D!

Thank you so much for reviewing our hotel! I am glad that you were able to take advantage of our shuttle service and that you enjoyed your stay. I do apologize that the business center was undergoing a remodel while you were here. It has since been completely finished (save a few decorative touches), and no longer has that "closet" feel. Hopefully you'll be flying through again soon and you can give it a second try. Safe travels, and thanks again for staying Joni D!

Wonderful lobby with coffee, etc. at all times. Breakfast cooked to order. Chef personally came to the table to check if everything was fine. $9.99 for all you can eat breakfast is an excellent value. (The free breakfasts served at other hotels in the area serve eggs which are powered.) My son is a Celiac requiring gluten free food. The staff checked the box labeling on the sausage to be sure it was safe for him. Very clean rooms. Within a stone throw of CMH airport. Shuttle came immediately. Highly recommend.

The mattress had craters in it. Huge permanent depressions where every other guest sat and laid. Not only did this make the bed uncomfortable, but I laid there all night thinking about the people who had used the bed prior and how that much damage must have been caused by guests AND overlooked by hotel staff. I set the AC to Auto and halfway through the night, the temperature outside dropped enough so the unit switched from Cool to Heat which made it extremely warm in the room and very uncomfortable. The bathroom door was just stupidly annoying, in that is automatically closed, had to be closed to get in and out of the room, and if you didn't pay special attention it would slam shut when entering or leaving the bathroom. I normally don't report problems while staying at a hotel, because once I'm in a room it is normally a LOT more annoying to report a problem and have the staff try to fix it, than it is just to put up with it. For me, it is easier to deal with an uncomfortable mattress than it is to get dressed at 10:00 at night, repack my bags, come all the way down to the lobby and request a different room. Certain things should be a standard quality BEFORE guests arrive, not AFTER they check in, unpack, shower, and settle in for the night.

Here visiting our daughter for a few days and chose to stay here for due to its convenient location. The rooms and facility are all extremely clean. Morning breakfast was great and staff very friendly. If you are Hilton gold or above breakfast is free but still not a bad deal at $9.99.

I would highly recommend to stay if you are in the area and need a dependably safe and clean place to stay.. As a Sid note the airport noise can be a little loud in the late evening but diminishes later in the night..

Room Tip: Stay away from the runway side.

If you're flying into or out of Columbus, this hotel (and next-door sister hotel Hampton) can't be beat for "location, location, location." Cleverly compact combination of bar, restaurant, breakfast bar, and lounge area blending together. Great staff. indoor pool / jacuzzi / fitness center were decent. Only annoyance was shuttle to the rental cars, as we waited 20+ minutes.

By far the friendliest staff EVER! Bed wasn't as nice as I would have expected from a Hilton, but the hotel was great overall. I will decently stay here again. The food was good. The ladies at the bar where great and very friendly.

Overall i like this facility for convenience and access. However, a lot of confusion and attitude at the front desk when checking in this time, sent to a room which did not match my reservation and when returning was confronted with a not so nice rebuttal of my preferences - lacking in service training here and disconcerting at the least! The new interior is nice and interesting but i am not certain why the attempt to make this property into a "boutique" feeling place, doesnt seem to fit the average clientel. Overall i will try again but needs some staff work.
