We went to Columbus, Ohio to go to an OSU Leadership Conference and attend OSU football game . Hampton Inn Suites was suggested as an option. We greatly enjoyed our stay. Complimentary breakfast was amazing . All staff were friendly and helpful.

Our hotel stay was great! We loved everything about this hotel. The only complaint was Tyler at the front desk, he was not people friendly at all. All of the other staff was great! We will stay here again when we are in Columbus.
