Have stayed here several times and it never disappoints. Beautiful lobby and hotel bar which are terrific for entertaining others or meeting. Rooms are a bit small but pleasant. My go-to when staying in downtown Columbus.

"try a Hilton hotel, first"
"Some of the rooms directly face High St which can be a bit loud from time to time."
"I was near the elevator-I definitely could hear traffic! But it wasn't too bad."
"I had a room at the end of the hall on an off-week and I thought I had the hotel to myself!"
"Take ear plugs, lots of street noise, including very loud trash pick up from the street at 4:30 am."
$192 - $415 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
