Prior to a recent flight out of Columbus, Ohio, we stayed at the Candlewood Suites near the airport.

We stopped there and we had a porterhouse steak medium and it was cooked absolutely perfect!! And the steak salad was fantastic. A little pricey but worth it. If your in the area stop and try it you will like it!!!

Right next to Candlewood suites 10% discount on room key. Nice staff. Large sandwich--took half home--and ate slowly, enjoying mu novel. I was there at closing but didn't even know until the manager unlocked the door to let me out. Glad I left a nice tip.
