Even though we are locals in the area, we booked a king suite at the new Springhill Suites in Columbus, Georgia for a weekend getaway. Boy, were we impressed! The property is neat as a pin inside and out. Our suite was clean and polished and the lobby and common areas were nicely decorated and very clean. The property is nonsmoking throughout the interior which was a big plus as well.
We loved the fact that the airconditioning system is controlled by a thermostat on the wall rather than the usual type unit which has to be manually turned off and on. It was nice to "set it and forget it."
When making reservations through the hotel website, we requested extra towels and a room on a low floor. Both requests were honored.
Our suite looked out on the pool area which was pleasant. The pool area is open until 11pm and was a little noisy at times, (Soldiers on leave from Ft. Benning having the good time they deserved.) Promptly at 11 pm though, the noise stopped.
The suite was nicely furnished with a sofabed, chairs, desk, floor lamps and a wet bar with microwave, coffeepot and small refrigerator. Also included were a nice hairdryer, ironing board and iron. The large screen TV sat on a dresser and easily swiveled to be viewed from the bed or living area.
The king size bed was comfortable and the sleeping area was large enough not to feel cramped. Both the sleeping area and living area had a variety of lighting options (floor lamps, desk lamps, overhead lighting) which makes for easy reading no matter where in the suite you were.
The bathroom is spacious, the sink, shower and tub were spotless.
All of the staff we came in contact with were courteous and helpful.
There are many, many restaurants in the immediate vicinity, several (Chilis, Red Lobster, TGI Fridays) within walking distance. A huge SuperWalmart and Sams club immediately across the street and several strip malls are also within walking distance. (It's a walkable distance, but a quick car trip would make it easier on you.)
We will definitely stay here again and will recommend it to others as well.
