Drury Inn & Suites Columbus Convention Center
Ranked #3 of 144 Hotels in Columbus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 2, 2012

We travelled to Columbus on New Years Eve to enjoy a Blue Jackets game and celebrate the Holiday. We arrived around 5:00 PM and were greeted by very friendly ladies at the front desk. They got us checked in and honored a "high room with a view request" made on their website when I made the original reservation. We were also given vouchers for free beer/wine in their Lobby Area.
The room we reserved was not a "suite" but it was very spacious for a double queen room. The room had a flat screen, plenty of work space at the desk, FREE wired or wireless internet, microwave, refrig etc.
The beds were very comfortable and the room's HVAC system was very easy to manage via a thermostat on the wall. The bathroom was small but how much space do you really need to shower? Requests were made in the AM on the First for extra towels and they were delivered within 10 minutes.
We did not make it in time to try the free dinner but we did enjoy the free breakfast. Eggs, bacon, waffles, sausage, french toast, cereal, donuts, muffins, juice, coffee, soft drinks, biscuits and gravy were all included. It was incredibly busy but the staff did an excellent job of keeping the platters full and fresh.
Parking is available via an attached garage and navigating the facility was very easy.
The only negative in the stay was there are only two elevators that service the garage and eight floors of the hotel. The wait time for elevators was up to 15 minutes between 0930 and 1130 in the morning. Seems like a flaw in design and was significant enough to be worthy of mention as a negative here. If you are in a hurry in the morning you may want to ask for a low floor so you can utilize the steps to access parking or the Lobby during peak times.
All of the staff from the Check In staff, to the buffet staff, to the housekeepers were ALL incredibly friendly and helpful! 10 stars to the Drury for service!
If you are in Columbus and want to enjoy a spacious room in a facility that is clean and staffed with friendly people for under $200.00 a night I would recommend this hotel!

Was just in Columbus for a "fun" trip....Blue Jackets game, shopping at Polaris, and dining in the area. Love the atmosphere of downtown Columbus and the Drury Inn & Suites made my stay a wonderful one! The hotel staff there is probably the nicest hotel staff I have ever encountered....from the front desk, to the "Kick-back" and Breakfast staff....so friendly and definitely know the meaning of "customer-service".

The evening "Kick-back" reception is great....hot food including hot dogs, macaroni and cheese, chicken tenders, baked potatoes, fresh veggies, and of course chips, pretzels and dips. Comfort food is always a nice touch! The breakfast they offer is good too....even the scrambled eggs that they served did not taste like "hotel eggs". I was in a standard 2 Queen bed room and it was very comfortable. I have stayed there before in the Suites and they are spacious and comfortable too.

If you plan to be in the downtown Columbus area, this is a great place because of it's location as well. Withing walking distance of the Arena District and Short North....easy access to major roads....and of course it is right next to the Convention Center. I would highly recommend staying at this property!

Stayed here Friday the 25th while in town for a Blue Jackets game. For the price and all the stuff that is included in it (Good room, comfortable bed, snacks, hot dinner, hot breakfast) and walking distance to Nation Wide Arena Drury Inn is hard to beat!

I have stayed in other hotels next door and across the street. Yes some are cheaper but you get what you pay for!

Always enjoy my stays with Drury!

Hotel was nice exempt first room had stain on the carpet the second room was very clean. The breakfast was ok could've had a better choice of foods though. Also you pay for parking that was a negative.

Staff, especially Kirbie was outstanding. great room great value. Offered a nice little "kickback "as they call it. The "kickback' was great and had three free drinks (alcohol) and plenty to eat everyday from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. The was baked potato's, Nacho's and Cheese, Chili, Salad, fresh veggies, hot dogs. They were great here and we enjoyed the Hot tub and pool while we were there also. fun Week end located three blocks from Nationwide arena and next door to the convention center. Rooms were well appointed and spacious. Bed was very nice. would recommend when in town.
