Drury Inn & Suites Columbus Convention Center
Ranked #4 of 143 Hotels in Columbus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 6, 2013

The hotel is a very nice and clean hotel and its attachment to the covention center kept you from going outside. There is a food court between the hotel and convention center that also allows you from going outside that has about 15 different types of food. This was a real bonus when it was cold outside and not having to move your vehicle. The breakfast is fare and the beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. Scott and his staff offer a great customer service and I have been visiting them for the past 7yrs.

I only stayed one night but wished the stay could have been longer. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The staff is very helpful.

They do offer breakfast and a 5:30 to 7:00 kickback. I did not participate in either. I left before breakfast and the food was not appealing.

This hotel is a must stay if you are in Columbus, Ohio.

Trying to pull in the cars were backed up onto the road. Needed someone to explain not blocking the parking entrance. The front desk was friendly. There was not near enough seating for the buffet and the drink line was not even worth it since they didn't seem to know how to pour drinks. I think one drink took 20+ minutes to get. The room was a nice as expected. The room next to us was very loud. We love Drury, however, I will stay in the one outside of town from now on. This was not overly enjoyable unfortunately. The pool was out of towels also so that was not nice at all. Trying to get them took a while as well.

DruryHotels, General Manager at Drury Inn & Suites Columbus Convention Center, responded to this reviewResponded April 3, 2013

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I appreciate all of the feedback I get as it helps me to gauge how well we are doing at keeping our promises to our guests.

I apologize that there was a line of cars waiting to check in when you arrived as well as a line that was far too long for our evening beverages. While that is not typically the case, I can definitely understand your frustrations. In the future, should you encounter excessive noise from rooms nearby, please let the front desk know so we can help the offending parties to quiet down or to find a different hotel.

I do have some good news to share with regards to our 5:30 Kickback. Just last week we started a full renovation of the hotel. Part of that renovation includes widening the bar and adding an extra drink station that we can use to serve our guests. Our hope is that we will be able to keep the lines flowing smoothly and avoid back-ups going forward.

Thank you again for your comments and please don’t hesitate to let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you.

Hospitably,

Scott Bosak
General Manager

The Drury chain is one of my favorite! Always clean, comfortable and lots of extras not typical for hotels of this class. This hotel did not disappoint. The lobby area is welcoming, with eager staff. The rooms are typical for Drury, and can provide a nice view of Columbus. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms are quiet for a good nights rest. My only issue was the pay for parking. However, there is no better choice for downtown Columbus!

Stayed for convention this weekend, and will make this my preferred convention hotel for Columbus. Connected directly to the Convention center, and room key was needed to access the "secure" connecting walkway and elevators. Breakfast was great.... fruits, meats, eggs, cereals,biscuits-gravy, and the popular waffles. The evening "kickback" had salad, raw veggies, hot dogs, nachos, chicken tenders...and beer and wine. All of this was included with the room fee, as well as free wi-fi. Parking was in their own secure garage, with In & Out privileges.This was so convenient and safe for going back and forth to convention sessions. With the breakfast and evening meal provided we saved money on eating out. I've been at the Hyatt , Hampton,and Crowne Plaza before where there was a charge for most of the things Drury offered free. While some of these other hotels have fancier duvet bedcovers, nothing else was better than the Drury.

Our corner room was super clean, very spacious, and quiet. We met the mgr. Scott Bosak one evening as he chatted with many of the visitors at dinner. He greeted customers, making sure to ask about their service and satisfaction----and that has never happened at the other hotels :)

I will definitely head for the Drury next time I need a downtown Columbus hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for the CORNER room. Corner rooms are larger, similar to a suite. Two TV's and large window...

Recently stayed here and this will be my preferred hotel from now on. The only way I will not stay in a Drury is if someone else makes the arrangements or there is no Drury available. Loved this place. Security measures are second to none and the extras are incredible.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with this place!!

Clean, well-maintained large hotel within 3 blocks of Nationwide arena and restaurants. Free hot breakfast is included as is an evening 'kick back' where there are snacks, kid-friendly food and free drinks for all adults in your room(s). This is a nice way to get started before a Columbus Blue Jackets game.
