Reasonable rates. Nice rooms. Plenty for children to do. Pool, arcade, putt-putt and hot tub. Lots of room for family entertainment by pool area. Free breakfast bar, basic menu. Wait staff was not very attentive. Pet friendly. Close to eateries and shopping. Would stay there again!

We had a minor issue with our room that we brought to the attention of the front desk. In spite of it being a full-house night, they were able to move us to a different room - which required re-cleaning our first room for another guest. Couldn't have been more gracious in how they handled this. Thank you!

I was in Columbus for business and stayed at this pleasantly surprising hotel. Standard rooms are more than reasonably priced. Upgraded suites are exquisite and appear to be worth their price. The aesthetics of the lobby and common areas are amazing ingredients. The lobby is set up like an old time main street. This place belongs at Disney. The amenities... More

The room amenities are what you'd normally expect for a hotel of this age. Atypical in every way; however the room was very clean. Stayed here for a soccer tournament and this is great for the kids. There is a courtyard/atrium area in the middle of the with a nice size indoor pool (5'4" to 3'5"), a nice hot tub... More

Stayed the other night at this property, the room was clean with the basic amenities. Big place with 7 floors, so if you are not a good walker to the room, request a room close to the elevator. Breakfast was included, not much there, VERY basic, much better at other hotel chains. Overall facility was dated and shows signs of... More

We were there the night before Labor Day. We arrived in the evening. The man who checked us in was very nice and helpful. The room was outdated and not clean. We had dinner that night in their restaurant ( also very outdated) and we were the only ones there and now we know why. The food was horrible. The... More

The staff was pleasant...the hotel was very uniquely designed.. The breakfast was very nice. The room clean... My husband forgot shaving cream...they gave him... More

My husband and I had stayed here before when it was Holiday Inn and absolutely loved it. When I planned this trip I was excited to visit here again thinking it would at least be the same if not better. My husband and I got one of the outside entry rooms in the back which was fine but the rooms... More

I have mixed feelings about this place. The lobby and pool area is very cool and unique. I was excited when we first walked in and thought that while it doesn't look impressive on the outside, the inside was so unique, I had high expectations. Then we went to our room. We had a room in the older section of... More
