We stayed in Columbus, Ohio at the Marriott by the Easton Mall. The room was very nice, new, and clean. Bed was comfy and the whole hotel had a comfortable feeling. We swam in the pool, and went in the hot tub. Shopping at the nearby Easton Mall was fabulous. The hotel provides a free shuttle to and from the mall. The mall itself is huge and has everything you need and more. We ate right next door at the Japanese place called Sakura Steak House. While the food wasnt the best, they had a large crowd and seemed to be a local favorite. They were very accomodating to my daughters allergies and she ate without worry.
