This is a beautiful new hotel located in a great location in downtown Columbus. The room was great. The customer service was fine, I was hoping for a little more flexibility for my pregnant wife and I, but it would have been exceptional customer service. If you have business in the Columbus area or are attending something at the Nationwide... More

I love the look and feel of this hotel! It kind of reminds me of NY hotels but more spacious! From the moment I walked into the hotel, someone greeted me with a hello and genuine smile!

Nice hotel conveniently situated for the conference centre in Columbus. Rooms well-appointed and staff good and helpful. No gripes :-) Location: Restaurants and pubs within walking distance which means you can unwind in the evenings. And Columbus has quite a few interesting places to explore. I enjoyed my stay here.

If you're staying in Columbus and need to be close to High Street/North High Street then the Hilton is a great option. It's walking distance to all of North High Street venues and the hotel very open and bright. The rooms are nice and modern. Very nice full service hotel in downtown Columbus.

We had called ahead to schedule a room for our wedding night. It was not ready in time, and was hung up on a couple times. By the beginning of the ceremony we still had no room. Not a good experience.

I am very sorry that your guest room was not ready for early arrival. Certainly this is not the type of experience we are striving for and deeply regret that the lapse in service cast a shadow on your wedding day. I can certainly understand how frustrating it must have been to not have access to the room before your... More

Attended 3 day conference here. Very convenient breakout rooms. Catering was exceptional for hotel fare - exquisite preparation at plated dinner, buffet lunches had many choices and much more than standard salad/sandwiches.

I traveled to Columbus twice over a six week period. The 1st time, we stayed at the Hyatt, which was nice, but decided to try a different property for our second trip. This property meets and exceeds the expectations for a Hilton. This is a huge property, yet it has a cozy feeling. The decor is chic, but not over... More

Fantastic, thank you Auguste for such a thoughtful review! We are so pleased you had a wonderful recent stay while you were in Columbus for a concert.

First impression is that the hotel is very clean and maintained like it should be. Plenty or space for organizing events and their conference rooms are really good. Buffet offered variety of food but in my opinion it was too expensive. Could find something as good for half price in any of the restaurants down the street. Rooms are very... More
