“Nice perks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We enjoyed the really nice clean rooms, friendly staff, comfortable beds, and free happy hour and breakfast . I guess the only bad thing is paying for parking but I hear that is pretty much a given. Hard to believe they are going to be renovating shortly!

We stayed her for a girls night out. The hotel was very nice. The staff was also very nice and helpful. The free happy hour and breakfast was great. The hotel was within walking distance of nationwide arena, restaurants and bars. I do not have 1 complaint about this hotel!

We spent a couple nights at the drury inn this weekend and thought it was the best bang for our buck. Free food and drinks were a definite plus that other hotels didnt have. It was close to all the surrounding hot spots so we saved money on cabs as well. The people were very customer friendly, and the rooms were exceptionally clean. The only problem we had was the toilet paper. It felt like recycled glass and nails, and wasnt functional the day after drinking. My friend suggests bringing your own charmin if you plan on sitting down at some point in the following days. Invest in 2 ply please. Lol

This hotel has free hot food and drinks in the evenings (including meatballs, hotdogs, popcorn, nachos) and a great hot breakfast in the morning. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Room was clean and location was great A++

The hotel is a very nice and clean hotel and its attachment to the covention center kept you from going outside. There is a food court between the hotel and convention center that also allows you from going outside that has about 15 different types of food. This was a real bonus when it was cold outside and not having to move your vehicle. The breakfast is fare and the beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. Scott and his staff offer a great customer service and I have been visiting them for the past 7yrs.

I only stayed one night but wished the stay could have been longer. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The staff is very helpful.

They do offer breakfast and a 5:30 to 7:00 kickback. I did not participate in either. I left before breakfast and the food was not appealing.

This hotel is a must stay if you are in Columbus, Ohio.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Trying to pull in the cars were backed up onto the road. Needed someone to explain not blocking the parking entrance. The front desk was friendly. There was not near enough seating for the buffet and the drink line was not even worth it since they didn't seem to know how to pour drinks. I think one drink took 20+ minutes to get. The room was a nice as expected. The room next to us was very loud. We love Drury, however, I will stay in the one outside of town from now on. This was not overly enjoyable unfortunately. The pool was out of towels also so that was not nice at all. Trying to get them took a while as well.

DruryHotels, General Manager at Drury Inn & Suites Columbus Convention Center, responded to this review, April 3, 2013
Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I appreciate all of the feedback I get as it helps me to gauge how well we are doing at keeping our promises to our guests.

I apologize that there was a line of cars waiting to check in when you arrived as well as a line that was far too long for our evening beverages. While that is not typically the case, I can definitely understand your frustrations. In the future, should you encounter excessive noise from rooms nearby, please let the front desk know so we can help the offending parties to quiet down or to find a different hotel.

I do have some good news to share with regards to our 5:30 Kickback. Just last week we started a full renovation of the hotel. Part of that renovation includes widening the bar and adding an extra drink station that we can use to serve our guests. Our hope is that we will be able to keep the lines flowing smoothly and avoid back-ups going forward.

Thank you again for your comments and please don’t hesitate to let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you.

Hospitably,

Scott Bosak
General Manager
