To start, the staff at the hotel was phenominial, very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, well kept but on the small side. The bathroom was especially small. Typical noisey hallways with doors slamming every two minutes. The beds were comfortable, and clean (no bugs, my wife checked). Great view of the city due to the fact that it's in a great location in the city. We walked to the Nationwide Arena from the hotel in a matter of minutes. We also had several good meals at Latitude 41. There is an excellent selection of very nice restaurants nearby. One thing that I noticed was they like to nickel and dime you to death with features that are usually free at other hotels. Overall experience was very good and we would stay there again.

I stay here periodically when I travel on business.

I really enjoy the location downtown Columbus, there are many really great pubs and restaurants within a short walk.

I find the bathrooms to be quite small, but they are clean, modern, and functional. The fitness center better than many hotels, but as with most hotels it is missing a few things I would like to use.

The decor in the lobby and lounge areas downstairs are very nice.

I have stayed here many times. Very nice hotel. Great people, great service, nice location, and a very good restaurant...not a typical hotel dining experience. As for the people who complain about a lack of ammenities or service, all I can say is if you want 5-star service, don't book through Priceline. Do you REALLY think you're going to get anyone to go above and beyond when you're paying $80/night and others are paying $150/night? If you're booking through Priceline, you'll probably get exactly what you pay (or don't pay) for.

Second time I have booked the Renaissance via Priceline (i.e. did not know for sure what hotel I would wind up with). Via Priceline wound up paying $80/night for Thanksgiving weekend and the place qualifies as an excellent value at that rate. But overall just did not seem to be a top level experience - would have been frustrated to have paid full cost. Examples of problems: Arrived late in the evening. Room with two double beds just had fairly light blankets on them. One extra blanket in the room for the two beds. Person in second bed thought she would be OK, but actually was a little cold during the night. Next AM we called to get an extra blanket, which they brought - but with two beds, you would think they would supply extra blanket for both. Relative staying down the hall mentioned that they had quilts on their beds. I would have expected our room to have been made up with quilts. Called from their room to request quilts. Came back in the evening to find one bed with a quilt and nothing added to second bed. Had to call again to get second quilt. There were other problems of this level. Nothing terrible; but just not the kind of attention to detail that I would expect from a place that is marketing itself as an elite hotel. Previous visit in March of this year had similar problems. Would have no problems staying here if I make a Priceline bid at a cheap price and Renaissance accepts it - but I'll be hoping the Hyatt says yes to that bid instead of the Renaissance

Nice hotel, clean & surprisingly very quiet. Great Location, in the heart of down town Columbus... close to all amenities. Beautiful city... doesn't feel like a large city, yet has large streets to get around easily. I would stay again... if I'm ever back that way again.
