This hotel deserves all its rave reviews. It's decorated stylishly and so clean that it looks brand new although it's a few years old. The beds were amazingly comfortable and the linens very clean. My boys told me the pool was the perfect temperature. It's the standard hotel size, ie small, but it was just them so they had no problem with that. I noticed there was a grill on the patio that I assume guests can use.
The breakfast buffet is indeed more varied than usual, including make your own waffles. On Friday there was a lot of food with gluten (breads etc), hard boiled eggs, bananas, apples and yogurt. On Saturday there was the same with some scrambled eggs. If you have food allergies, your choices are limited, like they are in most places. At least they had the hard boiled eggs.
The staff was very friendly. One word of warning, they only make one pass with the housekeeping, so if you miss it, they don't come back. That wasn't a problem for us because it was all so clean to begin with and we just went to the desk for dry towels.
The hotel is located right off the freeway, with an easy trip into the town of Columbus itself. If you have kids, there's a great indoor playground downtown at The Commons. It has a fantastic climbing structure that our 7 and 9 year old boys thought was terrific.
I did see a dog in the hotel, but never heard it. We were on the 3rd floor. I think they keep the dogs in the ground floor rooms.
