Hilton Columbus Downtown
Ranked #6 of 144 Hotels in Columbus
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I've stayed at this Hilton numerous times since it opened in October 2012. The rooms are great, especially the two-room suites. I've found the beds to be the most comfortable of any hotel I've stayed in over the years. The location couldn't be better for Columbus. Right outside the door is every restaurant and bar you could want within walking distance.

Room Tip: Corner rooms on the south side offer a great view of downtown, especially around the holidays.

Friendly, professional greeting in the parking garage as we entered to self-park. Friendly, professional service at check-in. Special room requests fulfilled. Room was very clean. Beds comfortable. Views were great. The lobby and interior public areas were clean and very nicely decorated. We did not stay long enough to enjoy the many amenities offered, nor explore much of the surrounding area, unfortunately. We were in town to attend a concert at the LC Pavilion, and chose Hilton based on location and "style." (Our children wanted to stay in a "fancy hotel on a high floor." It was an easy and pleasant walk to the LC. Would recommend the Hilton, and would stay there again without hesitation.

This Downtown Columbus Hotel was beautiful inside with interesting design cues. My husband and I live here in Columbus and were celebrating out 20th anniversary so we thought that we would have dinner locally and then retire to this hotel because we love the energy of Downtown Columbus especially in this area.

I booked through Hilton Honors and asked for a King if possible as at the time only 2 double beds were available. By the time we checked in the arrangements were already made for the change and to our surprise, the room was adorned with pink rose petals on the bed in the shape of a heart, chocolate covered strawberry's as well as a note wishing us a happy anniversary.

The room and the experience in itself was enough but that exceeded our expectations and was a very pleasant surprise.

Contemporary hotel with a vibe, yet comfortable. On the whole, we enjoyed our stay. The downtown hotel is very convenient, adjacent to the arena, across from the North Market and not far from Short North. The rooms, while comfortable were small. The only complaint is the a/c vent which blows strongly across the desk area making it very chilly, even with the thermostat up, so as a work area, it was not comfortable. We had a good burger for lunch in the Bar Bistro. The service was good, but the food delivery was slow. A la carte breakfast was terrible. Scrambled eggs and the egg frittata were cold, lacked advertised veggies and looked thrown onto the plate. I guess they only want customers to eat from the buffet. A la carte is definitely an after thought...so was the slow delivery, despite the friendly and efficient staff. To get from the parking garage to the hotel is a bit convoluted until you figure it out. Walking around the corner was much easier than waiting for the multiple elevators.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I regret that you did not fully enjoy your breakfast; certainly not the experience we are striving to provide. I have shared your comments with the team to see how we can improve upon the breakfast a la carte experience. Self-parking is located in the large garage adjacent to the hotel not under our management; we are constantly trying to improve the signage to help direct guests. We also offer valet parking with unlimited in/out privileges up to 5pm on the day of departure which you may find much more convenient and a good value.

We stayed at this Hilton for two nights for a wedding. This upscale hotel proved to be a good choice for a fun, family event. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the facilities; staff was exceptional, always going the extra step to be helpful and friendly. The room was quiet and clean; mattress comfortable; nice bathroom with a shower that was all glass and easy to use. Air-conditioning was fine, not noisy. Coffee delivered on time each morning at 6 a.m. Pastries fresh; multigrain bread delicious. Breakfast and lunch in the restaurant were delicious. We are particular about cleanliness and staff and this hotel met all of our high standards. We were impressed with this hotel and would highly recommend it. Cost is fair considering the hotel was of high quality and it was downtown in a large city. We did not use the internet nor the pool.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 744 and although a little smaller, would stay in it again. It overlooks the atrium...

Very contemporary hotel updated and very accommodating beautiful pool area. We stayed on a high floor very impressed with the room extremely comfortable beds and updated bathroom. Refrigerator was a little small but we made it work. We needed a microwave we had to pay for it but that's ok it was helpful to be able to have one put in the room

My fiancee and I did a quick trip from Cleveland to C-Bus for one night to see a concert at the LC Pavilion and we wanted to be able to walk there and back and also be in a good/fun location to eat and drink. We wanted a nice hotel to make it a romantic evening as well with nice amenities. The Hilton in Downtown Columbus was everything we wanted and more. The rooms were great and the bed was so comfy. Great staff and excellent service. We would stay here again for sure.
