We recently spent 5 days at this hotel while participating in the summer national fencing tournament. The hotel is centrally located, attached to the convention center, and has excellent amenities. It is true, as one reviewer mentioned, that the lower level rooms overlooking the atrium can be a little noisy, as we found out last year staying at this hotel while attending the same event, but the remainder of the hotel doesn't have the same problem and the noise level isn't a huge problem. The staff is helpful and friendly, the hotel is updated and very clean and the service excellent. They were particularly helpful with my pet and children. I'm sorry the event will not return to Columbus next year. We really enjoyed the city and the hotel.
