From parking attendants when I arrived to bellman when I left, staff were professional and caring. Having a mini refrigerator in the room and a broad room service menu made quiet breaks from the conference possible as well as easy access to varied local dining. Walkway to the convention center was muchly appreciated during thunderstorms.

Thank you Jacqui W. for your kind review. We are so pleased to hear you had an enjoyable recent stay with us! The pedestrian skybridge does make getting to/from the Convention Center much easier. especially during those summer thunderstorms we had in June. We wish you safe travels! More

The accommodations were generously and impeccably appointed and maintained by an invariably warm, friend, caring, efficient and professional staff. I could not have had a better experience of residing for five days away from home.

I have hosted lots of hotel banquet events but I have never received this kind of excellent service. Nothing went unnoticed or addressed. Any help I needed was given with a smile. The food was good but the staff was remarkable. We were in the King Room on Friday, June 24th.

Thank you Jim E., we were honored you chose the Hilton Columbus Downtown for your recent meeting. I am fortunate to work with a banquets & events team that is so hospitality driven; very glad to hear you were impressed with the food as well. Our culinary team certainly goes above and beyond the normal “banquet” menu offerings! More

I was in Columbus for business for two nights and stayed at the Hilton once again. The staff were every bit as welcoming as on my previous visit. The room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast and coffee was great. This is a lovely hotel, well located and consistently welcoming.

This is a very nice hotel! Very clean! We stayed in a suite! Loved it! We had a full bathroom and a half bathroom! Very modern! The bathrooms were amazing! Lots of cute restaurant near by to choose from. We ate at Bare Burger! Great menu. Loved the enclosed bridge to walk to the convention center! Excellent!

What a perfect hotel for the arena district. Members of Hilton club, we check in online around 11 and got to pick our room. Love that feature. Eleventh floor great view towards arena.

This is the best hotel to stay at for Origins. The Skybridge makes it possible to stay inside for the entirety of the convention. 8) Also, the entire place feels brand new/recently renovated. I got better sleep in their bed than I do in my own bed at home!

I stayed at the Hilton Columbus Hotel for a convention and I have to say, it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. The staff is well trained and extremely helpful; the note had everything I could possibly want and the art on the walls is from local artists. I don't usually get to say in "fancy" hotels,... More

What a wonderful review! Thank you for your kind comments about your recent stay at our hotel. The local art is a unique feature and ties into the creative, talented art community in Columbus.

Generally, Hiltons are reliable. The downtown Hilton is a lovely facility, very tastefully appointed in a modernistic style without being garish. The staff were most helpful and responsive. The few meals I had at the restaurant were fine. Regrettably, my room has an unpleasant, musty odor that seemed to grow worse during my stay. A complaint to a manager assured... More

A truly top notch property, but misses on room size, food service, and Internet service. At this price point, everything should be at full speed to receive a full five rating, and it is not. However, I can recommend this hotel with that caveat.
