I stayed here this past weekend. I chose this hotel over the across the street Drury that I've also stayed at solely because I had a free night from my Priority Club Credit card that I needed to use. The location of either hotel is excellent, with very close proximity to the Arena, convention center and Short North entertainment district. We actually came in for an OSU game, with the campus a short drive (not walk) away. I stayed two nights, one free and one I pre-paid for to get the cheapest Advance (non-refundable) purchase rate. The room was o.k. and by hotel standards reasonably clean. We really didn't use any amenities other than the cable TV and 5 minutes of WIFI. I was told that the WIFI was complimentary due to my Priority Club status and that we also had a choice of discounted valet or bonus points because of it. I still need to confirm I wasn't charged for anything, as for some reason the hotel posted two pending transactions to my credit card of roughly $30plus. I don't have reason to expect that they won't get reversed on their own, but if not I'll post a follow-up to my review within the week. The room has the typical upscale foo-foo bedding do-dads that you have to find some place to put to sleep, but not as overdone as I've seen elsewhere. All in all nothing to complain about, but I can get the same nights sleep experience I typically want across the street a bit cheaper.
