“Great Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

This Hotel is the best I've stayed in so far. The staff were very friendly. We stayed for three nights and every night they asked us how our day was. They took time to talk with us and recommended a good place to get pizza. The room was clean and spacious. We had no issue with noises from other guests. Every time we come to Columbus, or anywhere there is a Cambria Suites, this is the hotel I will be staying in!

We've stayed at this hotel twice for girls shopping weekend. It's perfect! close to Polaris shopping, clean, plenty of suite to hang out. Comfortable beds. I also loved their small but well equipped workout area - treadmills, weights, mats, stability balls - had everything I needed to get a good workout in...

We stay here everytime we stay in Columbus. The rooms are very nice and spacious. Rooms are always spotless, nice employees. Polaris mall is right across the street so you have many options for dining and shopping. I have never tried the room service or restaurant in the hotel but the menus have a wide variety of foods, and the hotel bar is covert nice. And the new Cabelas is being built right next door to the hotel. Would recommend this hotel to anyone in Columbus!

We stayed two nights the week before Thanksgiving - our fourth stay at this hotel. We love this hotel - check in took about a minute in a half, our requested Pack 'n Play was already in the room, and the room was spotless. The entire hotel is always clean.

I can understand the people complaining about how you can't really watch two TVs since there's no solid wall between the rooms, if you have the volume up really high on both TVs it's not going to work - but we had no problem with football going in one room and Disney in the other.

Yes, you pay for breakfast. I've seen people complaining on here that this is the only Choice Hotels property that does not provide free breakfast. There is absolutely NO comparison between the Cambria and the rest of the hotels in the Choice Properties chain - Cambria is WAY above the rest. The whole property just feels way more upscale than any other Choice Hotel. So, I can understand why they don't offer a free breakfast. Even the mid-level properties in the Hilton chain (ie, the Hilton Garden Inn) make you pay for breakfast.

The one and only complaint I have about this place is the keycard scanner at the door to the pool is STILL malfuntioning. You have to call the front desk and have someone come and let you into the pool. We've stayed here four times since last November, and it has never worked. I think it's time for a replacement!

All in all - we will be back. It's a great hotel in a great location!

Room Tip: We've stayed in rooms on the first floor twice, and have never had a noise problem!

This was our first time at a Cambria Suites and we were impressed at the overall decor of the common areas and the guest rooms. The hotel is convienently located next to the Polaris mall and there are many great restaurants in the area. The room was very functional with a separate sitting area to relax and watch TV, and a well furnished bathroom with a large shower. The only problem with the room was with the king size bed next to the wall, I kept tripping over the air conditioning unit. The lobby was large with plenty of seating and laid out efficiently with a bar and restaurant. Overall it was a comfortable night stay at a reasonable price.

Cambria Suites at Polaris can be campared to a nice juicy hot dog. It looks great from the outside, but what's inside can be disturbing. Both the suites and the lobby were more cosmetically appeasing than functional. You can do much better in this price range. Their best trick is setting up a breakfast buffet that which in most quality hotels, would be complimentary. They then stop you as your leaving to grab your money. I very rarely take the time to write a review, but this was a truly disappiinting experience.

We stayed at the Cambria Suites for 4 nights-this was our 2nd stay.
The staff was EXTREMELY accomodating; the room is spacious and clean.
The only thin, as remarked by other guests, is that even though there are 2 TVs you had best be watching the same program.
The only issue we ecndountered was a slow flushing toilet which caused us some anxiety over the weekend. The staff, however, was responsive and tried their best to correct the situation.
Also, they are buikding a Cabela's next door and we were facing that side so if you want to sleep late-request a room on the other side.
We would DEFINITELY stay there on onur next visit-it is convenient to I-71, Polaris Mall and all the shopping on Polaris Pkwy.
