This is an extended stay property. That said, it's a nice one. The property seems very new and is close to a lot of restaurants and the Polaris Fashion Place. Columbus is a "driving town", though, so you would be taking your life in your hands if you wanted to cross the street. The workout room is very nice, and there is free laundry. I didn't use the pool, but it looked clean.
The room is basic, but very clean and new. There was a DVD player with the TV, which was nice. The kitchen has all the amenities expected in a full kitchen. Housekeeping only cleans rooms once/week, and your room won't get cleaned unless you are there for at least one week. I didn't mind making my own bed.
There is wireless internet (somewhat weak in my room) and internet access available via network cable (very fast). I had a little trouble with the climate control in my room (the first night it was 86 degrees in my room, and the next it was 62), and the fan was very noisy. The ceilings are thin and there is a fair amount of noise from people in the hallway. I recommend asking for a room on the 4th floor (top floor) so any nightime pacing from guests above your head won't bother you.
Parking is free and plentiful. I would stay there again (and probably will in Summer 2008) as it is a good value, and I liked the full kitchen, workout room and location.
