Came down the night before an OSU game. Great location not far from short north and walking distance to campus. Beautiful hotel and very nice clean rooms. While I didn't eat anything except a banana from the breakfast bar, there was a wide variety of options for people to choose from.

Our stay at the Residents Inn in Columbus, Ohio was very enjoyable. Check in was simple and every one of the staff we met were very helpful and courteous. The room was clean and comfortable. Although we didn’t use the kitchen we found it was very nice. We have recommended this Inn.
One should note that there isn’t any privet hotel parking. You can pay $20 per day for valet parking which is very convent. After talking to the staff at the Hotel, they were good enough to tell me the in’s and out’s of Columbus parking.
1.) Most parking meters are for 3 hours only. Some are 30 minute.
2.) They shut off at 10pm and turn back on at 8am. So the time they are off is free.
3.) Sunday is free.
4.) Public parking is from $6 to $8 a day. A bargain for in city parking.
5.) So if you get up before 8am you can move the car to the public lot then back to the street after 10pm.

Room Tip: Room 814 was very quiet.

My girlfriend and I had a very pleasant stay. The hotel staff was very helpful and attentive. Eating breakfast in what used to be a bank vault was great. Room was very comfortable with all the necessary amenities. Really had no complaints. Great hotel!

This is a converted bank. It is very nice, centrally located, valet parking and a friendly staff, happy hour and a good breakfast. Some good restaurants within walking distance. I'd do it again. Easy on and off freeway.

my husband and i traveled to columbus for the first round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament. we have some friends in the city that told us the general area we needed to be in so we could be close to the arena. i am so glad that we picked this hotel! all the rooms are suites (including full kitchen, couch area and a big bathroom). it was clean and modern. the lobby was beautiful, and you could tell this old building had a lot of history.
the hotel served a complimentary breakfast, including eggs and sausage, fresh fruit, bagels, oatmeal and several different juices. it was wonderful.
the only downside to the entire trip, was that our car got broken into in the parking garage. luckily all they took were a few of my husband's shirts that were hanging in the back. when we told the hotel staff, they were as helpful as they could be (even though they have no association with the parking garage) they brought the car around for us, and vacuumed all the glass out of the car. they taped up the window the best they could, kept the car out front for us and watched our bags at the front desk (we had one more game to go to after check out).
overall, great experience.

I stayed two nights at this property in Jul12. The hotel is set in an old building and rooms are adequately well done. decent complimentary breakfast, functional exercise room and friendly front desk staff provide essential comfort. Housekeeping is not up to the mark (we found cutlery left unclean after the housekeeper's visit to the room) and on the second day morning, I had to cope with exceptionally hot water from both hot and cold outlets in the bathroom shower!

The hotel is as described by previous posts. The main service areas were earlier a bank, with ultra high ceiling and even an intact safe door (opening in to breakfast buffet), and the rooms appear renovated and well appointed. Has king size beds and a neat kitchenette. Next door is a good cafe and it is walkable to german village but really close to the restaurants of arena. I did feel the property needs to improve its housekeeping - of course the rooms are spic and span, bathrooms cannot be cleaner, but service items of the kitchen are not all cleaned (they left a few of our coffee cups still resting on the side table) and they ignored the sofa bed (did not reset it). Now that could be and I believe would be an isolated experience, but want to express it so that it can be set right for future travelers. I must add, I will definitely stay here again.
