When we pulled up to the valet parking, we were greeted by a friendly guy who got someone to help us with our bags. He answered a few questions we had, and treated us like royalty.

I stayed with my boyfriend at this hotel for 4th of July weekend. He is in Columbus studying at OSU for a 2 month summer program. About the Hotel: The hotel was okay, but it was way too pricey for what we got. Our room was relatively clean but it was very small and there was no luxury about it,... More

We came to the Courtyard for Red, White, and Boom and was very impressed with the check in process with Abbey and was blown away with Jevon's customer service. Jevon seemed to really care that my family was happy and had everything we needed. Kudos to Abbey and especially to Jevon!

Don't stay here if you like to eat. I was going to say there are no good restaurants nearby, but a more apt description is that there are NO restaurants nearby. The closest restaurant - which is several blocks away - is Max and Erma's, which is a couple notches down from Chili's. This is not a knock against the... More

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
