Wonderful staff throughout the hotel. Location is perfect, within walking distance of some of the best restaurants Columbus has to offer, but there is no need to leave the hotel to find some of the best food in Columbus. The Gallerie Bar & Bistro is second to none in Columbus when it comes evening dining. It is run by one of the top chefs in Columbus, whose restaurant, Sage, is definitely worth a visit. The food at the Hilton Gallerie Bar & Bistro is definitely not typical hotel food. Bread is baked in-house as are the croissants and the butter is house-made. The bar section is a great place to sit and relax and offers 50% off during happy hour which includes appetizers from the outstanding dinner menu. Dining here is definitely a cut above other Hiltons worldwide. I certainly hope they can maintain the quality. Breakfasts are pretty much Hilton buffet quality (for the better Hiltons, like the Hilton Americas in Houston, which I consider quite good) with the exception of the house-made croissants and danish which excel.
Also within walking distance is the North Market, Jeni's ice cream and the shops in the Short North, none of which should be missed on a visit to Columbus.
The room we had (1234) had windows on three sides with great views, was comfortable, clean and had very modern decor. The bathroom was a very decent size with a large shower, no tub. Executive lounge was not open yet, but looked promising. We'll be back to check it out.
The pool is an indoor heated pool overlooking High Street. Great for the kids.
