Though we visited on a very busy weekend with a large wedding reception going on, we really enjoyed the hotel as it was in the perfect location for exploring Uptown. We loved the old mill building and the lobby was very comfortable.
Parking was a challenge with the large group and a concert going on in the Performance Center across the street, but we managed. Clearly there is a tradeoff for getting free parking!
The beds are very comfortable and the rooms were quiet until the morning when the inevitable housekeeping cart cacophony starts up, but that happens in any hotel.
I'm sure we'll stay again!

Business was a pleasure at the Columbus Marriott!!
From the moment our group arrived everything was great. We were welcomed by Jasmine's happy smile behind the desk, she and the others were ready for our group and made our five day stay for business a pleasure!! Arlene, Candace, Cecil and my housekeeping Evelyn helped me feel at home daily and the trip was made extra special with out tour guide, helper, bell man, Robert Harris!!
Rooms and beds were great!! My view of the old bridge and all brick architecture was nice, I also like trains, so the train seemed to add charm without disturbing my sleep. The history of the mill and the town is fascinating, check it out for sure.

Visiting from Michigan for the week and were thoroughly impressed with the hospitality offered by this Marriott. Jasmine S. found us a room when all hotels (including this one we thought) were booked due to a large conference in the area. She was polite, professional and very accommodating towards us. The lady in the Concierge lounge was also sweet as pie. Room was clean with heavy high-quality furniture, which was appreciated as we had a 14-month-old crawling around. Overall, top notch place to stay while in the Columbus/Fort Benning area. Definitely will stay here again.

this has got to be the best hotel experience I have had in a long time. From the moment we arrived, the staff was professional, yet very polite and personable. Reginald greeted us and my grandson absolutely adored him. The desk staff amde us feel at home for the 4 days that we were in your city. We were treated like family and made some great friends. Jasmine and Candace assisted us with directions to wherever we wanted to go. They even painstakenly told us where the Krispy Creme Donut place was. Smile. We are looking forward to visiting again soon. Thank-you for making a long experience, a good experience.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor, but I believe that any floor there is great. My grandson enjoyed learning...

I would like to thank Ms Jasmine Smith. She was so awesome and timely. She was the high light of my stay. She helped me and my softball teammates with reservations, room service, wake up calls. She is the marriott way of customer service. I highly recommend this marriot because of its maid service and desk service. Loved it........

Room Tip: room was right off the elevator and very easy to find.

Our stay here were just marvelous! We had a great time as well as enteracting with the staff. I'll like to say if you are planning any event, do make this place your first choice. They will accommodate your needs. I had the pleasure of meeting a few of the staff one on one, while planning our 10th wedding anniversary. Amanda is no longer there, but she was wonderful. Ms. Ann I will never forget how she made sure our needs were met. To Ms.Sho-Shawn, Ms. Mary, Ms. Jasmine, Ms. Christina, Ms. Stephaine, Mr. Cecil, Mr. Eric and Ms. Liz and her entire staff each of you went far and beyond the call of duty. Even though we live here, we decided to stay an extra night. Please try the corner rooms.

P.S. So leave the light on, we will be back!

Room Tip: corner suites better

I stayed at the Columbus Marroit for several days on a recent business trip. My accomadations were very neat and clean. The service was excellant and I was treated with a great deal of warmth and sothern hospitality. Jasmine Smith at the front desk was courteous friendly and very professional. She went out of her way to be helpful in making my stay a home away from home. This is the only hotel I would stay in in Columbus as I have over the last 10 years.
