Fantastic hotel to come in stay at for the night. The LC is in walking distance and there is alot to do around the arena district.

Hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. Parking is a little annoying but hey, it's not bad.

Thank you for letting us know about your nice stay with us. Yes, we are only a few blocks from the Lifestyle Community Center. Many of our guests find it very easy to walk to concerts at the LC. We hope to see you back here again soon, for another concert, hockey game, baseball game or one of many events at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Thank you again!

Very clean, new, well maintained property that was comfortable and looked great. Staff were all friendly above and beyond expectation. Room was comfortable and immaculate. Location is convenient for all downtown venues. There is a pub with New Orleans Fare right outside the front doors, and a seafood establishment a few steps further in the opposite direction.

I had not planned to stay at a hotel until my new place was available. I decided it might be easier to find a decent place for a couple of weeks. BOY!! I found a winner!! The RRI in downtown Columbus has been a great respite from moving to a new city. This is not what I expected from a budget hotel. This is a boutique style hotel with a wonderful staff and the most comfortable rooms I have seen in any type of hotel even at the high end.

I am a fierce critic when service or facilities are not what they advertise or you get an attitude for routine requests. The staff here, especially, Ruby, Haley, Joy, and Jesse, really will make you feel welcome and attend to your questions with sincere hospitality.

Room Tip: Be polite to the reception staff!!!

My husband and I always stay at the Arena District/Convention Center Red Roof Inn when he attends conventions there. Over the past many years we have found it always to be neat, clean,and a great value. All the personnel have been kind and courteous. The location is just right for us. We have had the pleasure of seeing Ruby year after year. She is a delight in the morning and keeps the continental breakfast neat, clean and well stocked. Thanks Ruby! Hope you had a great birthday! We will return again and highly recommend this Red Roof to anyone staying in the Arena District.

Stayed here for several nights when my mother was in the hospital at OSU. EVERYTHING was great. The staff were all very friendly and professional, the breakfast totally hit the spot (and it was free), and the hotel was very clean and quiet. I stayed a few nights by myself for the first time, ever, and I felt safe and secure. The women who cleaned my room were very nice and did a terrific job. I will definitely stay here the next time I am in Columbus.

I stayed at the Red Roof Inn - Columbus Downtown for two lengthy business trips this year. This hotel is comfortable, a great value, and convenient location for anything in central Columbus.

The customer service was exemplary during both stays. Jesse was especially helpful and accommodating during my most recent stay; I greatly appreciated all of his effort and assistance. Haley was also very helpful throughout both of my stays. It was a pleasure to work with everyone on the front desk staff.

The hotel offers a basic complimentary breakfast that consists of bagels, juice, oatmeal, pre-packaged muffins and pastries, and bananas or apples. Ruby, part of the staff who set up the breakfast area, always had a positive attitude. She put a lot of effort into making sure the breakfast area was well-prepared and available early.

I absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone who seeks a reasonable hotel for plans in central Columbus. There would be no regret in choosing this location unlike some other locations that you may try out. The hotel is impressive for a Red Roof Inn and the rooms and staff are valuable assets for this location.
