Better than last year when people walked freely and protested down the middle of the street without a permit or caring if they were disrupting traffic. As they may have a right to gather it is important to NOT have it impede on the everyday movements of rest of the city. The police are walking a fine line and don't seem to be too proactive so not to cause a riot or other type uprising. It is hard to make everyone happy but it seems to be in check at this time. The CRIME in the area of Ohio State NEEDS TO BE quelled and the Columbus PD needs to apply themselves a bit harder to make that happen. I understand there is an issue between the college president and the PD but it needs to be ironed out before anther issue like last Oct 11th repeats itself. The gun play is out of control and needs to be addressed.

Still many buildings boarded up from riots a year ago. Many restaurants closed, including some formerly very popular ones. Protesters allowed to freely take over streets. They did again 4/20/21 & 4/21/21. Even the beautiful Ohio Statehouse was surrounded by riot fence and dozens of law enforcement in attempt to prevent the riots, looting, & vandalism allowed to continue last year for two weeks. Sad, really sad.

We enjoyed a play on Tuesday night at Ohio Theater. Downtown has many places to go to eat and entertainment. Only problem we found was that many place near the theater close down by 9:00 PM so no place close to which you can walk

I was staying at a hotel 20 minutes from downtown. Googling popular restaurants in the area, I found Lemongrass, a Japanese, Thai, Chinese, American, and Mediterranean cuisine nearby. While driving, I noticed it would be on the downtown strip. That's fine, I thought. I'll simply park parallel with the traffic. Hopefully its not required to pay the parking meters on a Thursday evening at 6:30p.

Oh, I found the restaurant. I saw it the first time driving by, then driving back, and a third time, driving behind the building. Absolutely nowhere to park. Meters filled everywhere or half empty parking lots designated with private signs. Just not possible. Simply not worth my time. When we drove down to Columbus in the past, we had to leave our car at the park and walk to the Arnold, but to find a restaurant? Needless to say, it was raining and it was easier to drive to German Village and find somewhere better.

Bed linen not changes for a week, i staid for 2 weeks and had to ask for it 3 times. Staff in the pub downstairs very nice and friendly, food selection very limited tho. For EU guests there was no adapter, they said that there is only 1 for the whole hotel...so bring yours.

I had to drop off someone downtown yesterday afternoon. Columbus is such a clean city. Street signs are marked for clear references. GPS navigation is excellent around the busy downtown streets. Public transportation was located everywhere and I observed many people taking advantage of the service. Great city!!!

We were in 13 States and visited many cities - Columbus was our last stop before flying home. We were so impressed with how nice and clean the city was. It was great to be able to walk all over the place and feel comfortable. People were friendly and you can tell that they take pride in their city. Very visitor friendly and the free bus along High Street was a huge bonus - nice to have a break on an air conditioned bus.
