Directly across the street from the south entrance of the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Max & Erma's restaurant on the first floor - decent food with really friendly service. The affiliated fitness center is 3 blocks away, so if daily fitness is a priority for you, this might not be a good choice. This hotel is next door to the... More

This hotel is in a great location, directly across from the Convention Center and near everything! There is a CBus that is complimentary that has a stop right near the hotel and can take you to all of the main areas. The front desk staff was great even before arriving when I called with questions and they were great during... More

Efficient staff and easy check in. Loved the free van service to/ from our meetings and restaurants. We had a Double Suite and it was terrific. Only draw back wooden slat blinds for privacy. They did not keep the light out which bled though the sides just enough to keep me awake. The beds were good and the additional robes... More

This was a very unique hotel that was spacious and clean. We had the king suite. The bed was soft and comfortable. It has a separate seating area with leather furniture and another TV. Bathrobes and Loccitane bath products was a luxury touch. The front desk employee was very friendly. One point taken off for lack of soundproofing. The walls... More

Excellent hotel in proximity to Columbus Convention center. Max and Ermas downstairs. Short North market is 3 blocks away. The hotel is minimalist with high ceilings. Request a room on the 4 or 5 floor for better views. The lobby is manned by college age students and there is a shuttle service for 3 miles or less trips. The pool... More

We just stayed here for a night. Check in was easy and quick and the front desk person was pleasant. We stayed on the third floor in a King suite and the room was huge. The bathroom was a good size and clean, the L'occitane products were really nice compared to the typical hotel toiletries. I only wish the bathtub... More

This hotel is the perfect location for what we were in Columbus for. The room was on the top floor, so it had really tall ceilings that made the room seem huge. It was clean and I liked the decor. The service could use some improvement. We had reserved a room with a rollaway that was not there when we... More

overall building is pretty cool and the room are large, clean and well maintained. Do not stay in room 3309 (the restaurant is below and they power wash at 2AM and the noise is unbearable).
