“Best place to stay in town!”
Reviewed September 16, 2005

I came to Georgia for the first time this September for my boyfriend's Army graduation at nearby Ft. Benning. This hotel was a haven from the nasty budget hotel I had booked online, with a Southwest Airlines coupon I might add, but I didn't know of it until I got to walking around downtown. It's in a great location and the rates weren't too high. It sits right on the Chatahochee riverwalk that winds a couple miles up and down the river, makes for a nice evening stroll. It's also close by to the main night life in town on Broadway that has a variety of bars and some hit and miss restaurants that get pretty packed with an all-age crowd on the weekends.

There's also a Houlihan's restaurant in the hotel that has great lunch and a fabulous drink menu, the breakfast buffet looked good too but I didn't try it. That's the hotel's only food besides a small coffee shop that, thank god, brewed Starbucks coffee. I will absolutley stay here when I return in November and December with my parents who are total hotel snobs.

Wow! This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The property is historic and has been beautifully redone. The rooms are immaculate and spacious. There is a great restaurant on the property and all of Columbus is conveniently nearby. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Disappointing hotel. They need to correct several problems--We had NO hot water for 50% of our stay--this has been an ongoing problem for their hotel according to the staff!!The walls between the rooms are thin and we heard everything going on in the room next to us. I can't imagine how it would have sounded at full occupancy.The rooms are nothing special for the price. Would have to seriously consider whether I would go back since it is expensive.

I stayed there during an event held at the Civic Center across the street. Very convenient for anyone with business at the Center. Rooms were comfortable - not plush, not tacky, but quite comfortable. Lobby is nicely appointed, and there's a small bar and restaurant area with limited food service.

This hotel will be rebranded to a Wyndham Hotel on or about Sept 15. 2002, delayed from an estimated completion date of Aug 1, 2002. On a scale of 1 - 10, with 1= never again, and 10=I want to *live* there... it's a strong 8.
