My boyfriend and I stayed here over the weekend as a meeting point between where we live. We were pleasantly surprised at how different this Residence Inn is from the others we've stayed at. The building is an old bank (ca. 1926) which Marriott has repurposed in a superb way. They have kept much of the original bank in place, so there are original stations/office areas, safety deposit box tables, etc. A super high ceiling gives it that classic feel, but they have decorated in a a tastefully modern fashion. The breakfast buffet area is in the vault, which a massive vault door which is secured open for viewing. The rooms are standard Residence Inn rooms, but have a slightly different layout because they were offices originally. The staff were great at sharing the history and details of the bank, which is not always the case I have found.
The location of the hotel is fabulous, as well. We were able to walk to restaurants, theatre area, parks, as well as the Near North "artsy" area, which has lots of galleries, shops, restaurants.
The only downside I could see was the seating area for breakfast was extremely small and we noticed some groups of people didn't have spots to sit. There is valet parking available, but we actually found parking on the street nearby.
On our next trip to Columbus, we will definitely stay here again!
