The Columbus, Ohio downtown Hilton is in a great location close to the North Market and in the midst of the many Short North wonderful restaurants. A walkway connects to the convention center. Very beautiful, contemporary hotel.

Thank you for your thoughtful review and glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes, we are fortunate to be located so close to the Short North and Arena District. The pedestrian walkway has become an architectural landmark in Columbus!

I think I am now at stay 8 at this hotel and have nothing bad to say about it. Every stay has been for business and the staff is awesome! I would recommend this hotel to anyone without a doubt. From the rooms, to the food, bar, wonderful art, cleanliness, and attentive staff, the Hilton Columbus Downtown is the #1 spot to stay when in Columbus. I really enjoyed the buckeye crunch left in my room the last few stays, so much I have it now shipped home too. Really, you are doing yourself a favor by choosing to stay here. I travel for a living, and this hotel is often times what I compare other to.

This was a beautiful new hotel with a wonderful staff. We had such a lovely stay and were able to enjoy two delicious meals in the restaurant. The staff were so polite and accommodating. This will be our hotel anytime we need to be in Columbus.

Recently stayed at downtown Hilton for beer fest at convention Ctr. Excellent location and we walked across covered walkway to convention Ctr . We had beers and appetizers in bar, wings and pizza were very good but a little pricey! Hotel service and cleanliness was top notch. I would recommend and will return !

Beautiful hotel and rooms! Comfortable beds! The staff members were great! The only disappointment was there was no free wi-fi in your rooms. You could only get it free in a designated area in the hotel. For the price of an overnight stay plus paying $20.00 to park it would have been nice to be able to connect to the internet without an additional charge. While I was reading my Kindle on my lap top I kept getting pop ups to connect to the wi-fi which became very annoying. There are no locks on the bathroom door, just a sliding door. A bit uncomfortable feeling hoping no one will walk in on you. One request would be to have a full length mirror on the wall.

Thank you for sharing your feedback! Have to agree with you, the beds are so comfortable. Wifi is free in public areas including the Hilton Connectivity Station that includes four terminals and printing at no charge. As in all Hilton hotels worldwide, there is a charge for the convenience of in-room access though it is per room, not per device. Sorry that it hindered your experience and we understand your frustration with the pop ups. Also thank you for pointing out the full length mirror, a great request we will look into!
