General Manager John Businger is one of the best in the business. He's been in this Columbus location for over a decade. He's dedicated that your experience is satisfactory! The breakfast is outstanding. Rooms were clean and updated. Mine smelled clean and fresh. We have stayed here multiple times for OSU football games and OSHAA Basketball tournaments. Literally only blocks... More

We scheduled a trip not knowing it was move-in weekend at Ohio State. No problem - we were able to book a room using our Hilton Honors points at the normal rate. We checked in using the app, but accidentally selected a smoking room. Who knew such things existed these days!? Mimi from the front desk called very early on... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Hilton Inn near the University. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The bed was perfect for a good nights sleep. Will stay here again while in Columbus. The buffet breakfast looked scrumptious but not included in our stay.

Great location with easy access to the interstate and close to campus where my child is a freshman. Staff was attentive and tended to all of my individual needs. Very happy with my stay there and will stay there again.

Front desk indifferent. Front desk staff at every other Hilton Garden Inn says hello when you walk by. Some on breakfast staff not very attentive. Will not stay here again. Going back to Homewood Suites on Lane Ave.

I spent 3 nights here while attending an orientation session for Ohio State University. The stay was one of the best that I have had. I am used to traveling with my husband and can get a bit nervous staying on my own. Never once did I feel unsafe. The check in process was very easy and efficient. The room... More

Suffice it say it was one of my worst hotel experiences ever. The check in staff were not friendly or helpful. There were beer bottles in the atrium that were still there the next morning. They were out of most things at the restaurant, including lettuce for salads. When we asked where we could eat close by, we were directed... More

My cousin and I came down for a concert and we decided to stay at this hotel. We are not from this area so when we asked about places to eat and visit, the staff told us about some great place to go to. The room was really clean.
