This hotel wa great. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are super clean and comfortable. Great location if attending the convention center. I guess a little on the pricey side but worth it.

i just wish the care was better. They made me feel that we were just a number. Are key card did not work and tryed for awhile and then searched for help. Found a housekeeper that let us in our room. But then needed to go back to lobby and wait in line. They acted like this was normal and it was no big deal.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. On behalf of the team, I apologize for anything less than the stellar service I have come to expect from the team. This is certainly not how we want you to feel, and I apologize for the inconvenience that your room key caused. We encourage guests to bring any concerns/issues to a manager so we can make it right while you are here. If you are back in Columbus we hope you will give us another try!

I travel to Columbus every July for a trade show and this is the best hotel experience I have ever had. The beds are so comfortable! The staff is friendly and helpful. The food was great and the decor has a bright but very cool vibe. Great restaurants within walking distance. My new hotel of choice.

I can't imagine there is a better place to stay in Columbus. The staff (especially the valet department) is excellent, and the hotel has large and inviting public spaces. But the best part is the location. The hotel is ideally situated just a few blocks from the Short North neighborhood with all its restaurants and shops. If there are any downsides, it's the pool. The pool is small and disappointing compared to the rest of the property.

Thank you for the very thoughtful review and feedback, especially of the service you received from the valet team. Our central location certainly offers a lot to choose from nearby in the Short North and Arena District! We hope to see you again soon.

Beautiful new hotel - reception staff were very helpful and professional. Justin, the waiter in the restaurant, gave exceptional service - we were staying there for a week and he was so helpful and knowledgeable of the menu and the cuisine served. If you have children/teens the restaurant is a little bit more fancy than needed for dinner but the breakfast buffet offered a good selection. The bedroom was very comfortable and quiet and was tastefully decorated - great TV, small refrigerator, and great blackout drapes (would have been better without the bathroom night light) My only one complaint was that it is a shame that they cannot accommodate hilton gold members on their executive floor - only platinum. All in all it was a great stay, good service and very comfortable accommodation. When in Columbus we shall definitely return to this hotel.

Overall a very good experience and very nice hotel. Everyone was very friendly and did whatever it took to make our stay comfortable. We were there for a business meeting and convention for 5 days and felt right at home. Location is across the street from the convention center which made the walk very simple across the pedestrian bridge.

This hotel is superb. The customer service receives 5 stars +. the entire staff is incredible. they were quick, anticipated needs, and were very helpful, pleasant and friendly. The rooms are fair size, GREAT lighting, especially in the bathroom, and comfortable. Being a LED certified building, they did a wonderful job making it enjoyable as well. There is lovely unique art work all through the hotel, and when they ran out of surface space, they featured the art on the ceilings of the rooms. what a kick! Only one downside- the air-condition in the room i had, blew right on the desk when working.
the restaurant is good- the service in the restaurant has not caught up to the level in the hotel. Being on High street though, the hotel is located a short block or 2 walk from many fine restaurants in North High and the arena district. the new bridge across High street makes it very easy to access the convention center. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in downtown Columbus.

Room Tip: i preferred a room with the natural light on the street side, vs the rooms with windows facing into...
