What can I say? It was a place to stay! The hotel is large but older and the location was close to almost everything . Rooms were clean but not modern and a mini fridge and microwave were brought to my room for the duration of my stay at no extra charge. The staff was very friendly and there is a small store on the first level by the front desk just in case you forgot to bring something. Get in early though because the parking lot stays full Monday through Friday and the only entrance to the rooms is through the front door.
I would have enjoyed my stay a little more if they had more than a handful of television stations most of which were sports. I was also on the 8th floor and had two sleepless nights because of high winds that made a terrible whistling noise through the windows.
Overall, it was an ok place to stay but if I came back to Columbus, I would more than likely choose another hotel.
