My friend and I were in town for a girlfriend's weekend. We chose this hotel because of the proximity to the Ohio Theatre. We were able to walk to the theater and to the arts district on Short North with no problem. Our room was spacious and clean. There was a small refrigerator for beverages. There was some street noise... More

My wife and I requested to change rooms because the room we were assigned was not properly cleaned. The initial room we were assigned also had some oddly-placed stairs between the bathroom and the bed that we both tripped over. The staff were responsive and helpful but the quality of accommodations at this hotel is sub-par.

Overall a fairly decent place to stay if you are in Columbus on business. Nice, clean, yet fairly basic rooms. Good service at the cafe/bar. Comfortable business center and tv lounge. Valet parking was nice. Front desk staff was cordial, but lacked a bit of professionalism. Convenient location for my business purposes and close to various dining options.

This was a great downtown location with a boutique feel! Always great Marriott service from check in to check out. Lovely Bistro restaurant allows you to order from breakfast to dinner to snacks . Pool and gym really nice and the business center- open layout of the lower level is great for families and businesses alike .

While the rooms are not as nice as some newer facilities this was s nicely restored historic spot. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Service for breakfast was flow and pricey. The front desk staff could not have been nicer. Offered us umbrellas as we walked to dinner since rain was in the forecast

The hotel has convenient location. For an upscale price, it did not have a restaurant associated with it, only a bistro with limited hours. The room as clean and well kept. The staff was helpful and courteous. Unless I needed to be downtown, I don't think I would spend the money for a downtown hotel again.

Hi Robert N, Thank you for your review. The candor of your comments is well-taken and appreciated. It is correct we do not have a "full service" restaurant as a Courtyard by Marriott however we do try to eliminate any inconvenience caused by offering extended Bistro hours on weekends and 24 hour fresh options through our Market. We hope you... More

I stayed here seven nights on business in August 2016. I am always leery about staying at converted properties such as this, even a flagged property--"converted" in that the building's original purpose was not one related to the lodging industry. It was converted into a hotel well over 40 years ago (there's a brief history of the property in each... More

You would of course expect quality at a Marriott property, but this location works hard at getting it done right. The lift for the carts to get to the first floor was out, but the staff loaded at the valet and then transferred up a flight a of stairs to another bell cart without missing a beat. All the staff...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to one of Columbus' oldest surviving hotels! Built atop a plot of land dating back to the birth of the city in 1800, the history of our hotel follows closely the transformation of Columbus, Ohio, from a sleepy pioneer town inhabited by the peace-loving Wyandot Indians and our nation's earliest settlers into today's sprawling urban conurbation and capital of our state. Built in 1911, our building has always been one of stark contrasts. Ostensibly constructed as a dry goods store, the United States Government secretly commissioned the building as a clandestine producer of uniforms and helmets in anticipation of World War I. It was around this time that the lower level of the lobby became a factory for the Wolfe Brothers' successful shoe business. Meanwhile, thousands of prison inmates from the nearby Ohio State Penitentiary were forced into unsafe and unsanitary forced labor, transported at gunpoint down an elaborate network of tunnels connecting the prison to industrial plants around the city. The remnants of this tunnel still survive today, entombed beneath the first floor bedrooms, used as storage for maintenance and housekeeping supplies. From 1954, Gene Schiller purchased the dry goods store and transformed it into a hotel, which he named "The Victorian Inn" after his daughter, Victoria, who had recently passed away. After later losing his beloved wife, Schiller committed suicide, whereupon the hotel was acquired by a bank and renamed "The Emory Inn". In 1985, the "Emory Inn" was purchased by the Best Western Company who later rebranded as a Courtyard by Marriott. All historical features and furnishings have been preserved where possible We hope you enjoy your stay with us here at the Historic Courtyard by Marriott Columbus Downtown! ... more   less
