Stayed at this hotel for a 3 day weekend w/ girlfriends in September - our first at this location. The hotel is a renovated bank building which made for some charming architecture (vault door leads into breakfast buffet room where an old safe and safety deposit boxes still stand) and welcome stay. Were able to check in earlier and our room was very clean w/ retro-decor, spacious and ready to go when we arrived at approx. 1:30 PM. Pleasantly surprised to see a fully-stocked kitchen & stainless steel appliances - we didn't use them but def a plus if your traveling with children. My only complaint was the bathroom did not have a fan or ventilation feature so we had to leave the door open between showers! Hotel was very quiet and is pet-friendly but only saw one pooch in a handbag on our way out to dinner. Breakfast buffet was the standard fare with hot and cold foods, waffles, eggs, pastries and juices.
Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Hotel did not seem crowded for a weekend with lots of events going on. Valet parking is $20 (check your bill - we were charged twice) but a parking lot was a few steps away in a safe area and much cheaper. We "valeted" our vehicles the first night and "parked" for the second night. I felt very safe in leaving my car there and generally in the whole area.
Directly across the street we ate two FABULOUS eateries! The quaint TipTop which served us up some delicious fried green tomatos and pot roast sandwiches in a thrift-shop-chic atmosphere. Had dinner at Due Amici the following night and was impressed by staff and delicious Italian cuisine. Best spinach artichoke dip on the planet!
All in all I would not hesitate for a moment to stay here again. There are restaurants abound and centrally located to the Port Columbus airport. My girlfriends and I would come back here in a minute!
