“Beautiful well maintained hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

Have had the pleasure of staying here many times and it is always a pleasure. One of the nicest Hilton's I have started at. Great staff and clean rooms. Cool vibe, nice bar. Only complaint is that the bathroom is a bit small- I had a King room. Would definitely stay here again.

Here for a business meeting, so I didn't see anything of the area. The hotel staff was excellent, from the drivers who picked me and returned me to the airport, to the bellman, room service staff, etc. I may not have a reason to return to this area, but if I did, I would definitely stay here. Added bonus - the pillows are JUST RIGHT!!!

My wife and I had a great stay at the Hilton Columbus/Polaris. Clean rooms; comfortable bed and pillows; clean, well kept property; modern, elegant decor; friendly staff. Short walk to a couple nice restaurants for special occasions (Eddie Merlots, Mitchell's) that worked out great. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Polaris Hilton Friday night, as we met several out of town friends for dinner near the Polaris Hilton. We live in Columbus, so it felt a little weird staying at a hotel not too far from home, however the location was close to the restaurant and make for an easy evening (didn't have to deal with a taxi to get us back as we knew we'd drink heavily).

The hotel is new (built within the last few years), modern inside, very friendly staff, and had a very lively bar through the wee hours of the morning (there were forty or fifty folks staying at the property for a wedding the next day... I doubt the bar is that busy normally, however made for a fun evening).

We were upgraded to a suit (HH Diamond members), very spacious and couldn't find a single fault. The breakfast was good (fairly standard breakfast spread, you'd find at any Hilton), the service in the grille was great. I will certainly recommend this hotel to visiting friends in the future. There's a reason the hotel is AAA Four Diamond, and one of the top ratings in Hilton's internal "customer satisfaction ratings".

If you're visiting Central Ohio, give this property a shot. The hotel itself is very nice and the location is close to Polaris Mall (high-end shopping) as well as some fifty restaurants nearby.

Really nice hotel to stay at while visiting amazing Polaris area. Within walking distance of huge mall and great restaurants of all kinds. Located right off of interstate 71. Hotel is modern and clean. Nice lobby with main entrances and big parking areas at north and south locations. Nice bar area and restaurant in hotel. When coming back to Columbus/Polaris area we will stay at this Hilton.

We do offer complimentary shuttle service within a 5 mile radius of the hotel, should you not want to walk to the Polaris Fashion Place Mall or the surrounding restaurants (250 within a 5 mile radius). We also have the Papillon Day Spa in our hotel and hopefully you can enjoy this amenity on your next return to our AAA Four Diamond hotel in Columbus, OH. We look forward to seeing you soon!

We stayed at this Hilton for 3 days and totally enjoyed the location, amenities, and staff. It is only 4 years old and still looks brand new. The breakfasts were excellent as well, and the bar area is large, open, and modern. Polaris mall is so convenient - you could walk there if you care to. We have stayed at different Hilton properties in the Columbus area, but this is our new favorite. The staff is particularly friendly and accommodating - kudos.

We travel to Columbus quite a bit and have always stayed at the Hampton. We decided to give this Hilton a try. This hotel is in a great location for shopping and dining. Our room was extremely clean, had great cleansing products, wonderful fluffy towels, nice robes and a comfortable bed. The staff was extremely nice and first rate upon check in. We were on the top floor which made for a very quiet night; great for sleeping. We really enjoyed our stay and will stay there again!
