We were fortunate to get to stay at the Inn on a recent trip. The hotel has so much charm! Make sure to read about it in advance to get the most out of the experience. The room is not fancy but very nice and we had a large bathroom with nice toiletries. A very nice buffet breakfast is included.... More

It is certainly a historic building, but after staying there I still have no idea why would I choose to stay there again rather than in a more updated hotel. One thing is to be historic and another one to not be modernized. The public spaces of the building are beautiful. As for the hotel portion, the lobby and hallways... More

This place seems to have a lot of history that people like, I guess (though I think that has more to do with the Union League itself rather than the hotel). To me, it was an old hotel in need of a face lift. My room faced a brick wall (read: curtains closed all day, so no sunlight). I only... More

Always helpful for anything that is needed, yet not intrusive. Rooms are exceptional, older as built in 1909, but very well maintained. Check-in is super fast. The breakfast on business days is huge and amazing, weekends and holidays it is smaller yet still exceptional quality. The gym is high-quality and luxurious with great service.

We were here for a wedding. All employees are very friendly. The hotel is beautiful but not worth the high cost. The rooms are small, which is to be expected in an old building, but wasn't cleaned well. The vent in the bathroom had a THICK layer of dust and clearly hasn't been cleaned in awhile. Same for floor in... More

One of the finest hotel experiences of my life. When I arrived at their parking garage and saw the NO GRATUITY sign, I sensed the start of a very different hotel experience. Check in went smoothly. The room on the fifth floor was exceptional. The bath contained one of the nicest stall showers I have ever seen in a hotel.... More

As the title suggests it is interesting. The facilities are excellent. The rooms are superb as was the fitness and business centre. The staff on levels 1&2 (the cafes, restaurants and business centre) are extremely helpful and courteous. The check in desk doesn't do the club justice but maybe that's how it's supposed to be? The concierge staff are great.... More

If you can manage to stay here (Membership needed), make it happen. This is a charming historical landmark with tons of personality, history and great service. Dinner at 1862 by Martin Hamann was superb. Quality and presentation were outstanding. The Museum on the lower levels was a history buff delight. Rooms were comfortable, with old school charm and modern amenities.... More

This is a very old building but with lots of old world charm. I was here for an annual meeting flying in from California. It is a private club but allows you to book rooms and then make other services available to you. You must wear a tie and jacket in the dinning rooms but being from an informal part... More

My wife and I stayed at the Union League over Columbus weekend in 2015. The League boasts an impressive history, and has an even more impressive reputation as a private club. The Inn delivers on luxury and amenities. Breakfast is included with your stay, as well as a snack and coffee bar on the second floor. Our room was well... More
