Who would have thought that a fairly decent hotel would allow their property to be used for a prostitution sting operation by the police department??!
I was in Columbus on a business trip. When I pulled into the parking lot, I noticed a sheriff paddy wagon in front of the entrance. There was plenty of commotion. When I was checking in, I asked the front desk clerk what was going on. I was told that the hotel gave PERMISSION to conduct a police sting operation to catch prostitutes at work and conduct arrests. The clerk stated it as a matter of factly like it's an everyday thing. I was shocked and felt very uncomfortable. How can a hotel attract this kind of negative attention with pleasure? I wanted to leave and go somewhere else but the hotel was booked through a third party.
The lobby was clean, modern and well lit. But the room was very outdated with ugly furniture and an old type of a bulky TV. The bathroom had mildew in the tub and around the sink area. I will never stay here again and wouldn't suggest that you do.
I couldn't stop thinking: what would possess anybody who owns a successful business to partake in something like this? It's truly beyond me.

I stayed one night at the Doubletree on the way back from Indianapolis heading to the Cleveland area. It was getting late and it was pouring, so I figured that it was safer to stop for the night. Besides I had some work to get done. I stopped at a couple exits along I-270 north of Columbus, but all the places I checked were booked solid. After checking Expedia, I was able to get a room at the Doubletree. Not a bad choice at all. The place was comfortable and clean. The room had plenty of spaceand had all the comforts of home. Plus the internet access (in-room wireless) was free.

There are several places to eat in the area around the DoubleTree, including a few in easy walking distance (the Winking Lizard is the closest). There is a free breakfast buffet with several options.

Recently stayed at the Doubletree and I was satisfied overall. There were a few issues that I was not too happy about, first when checking in on a weekend when they had an event there w/over 200 people there were only 2 people a the desk. I am not sure if that was because there may have been limited computers available but after driving almost 3 hours the last thing I wanted was to wait in line for 10 minutes. The last thing was once I checked in and after checking beds I find a dried snot on the wall~UGH!! There was also some issues with cleanliness in the bathroom.
But what it lacked in cleanliness its service made up for. Because of that I gave the hotel a 3 out of 5.

Only here for 2 days and nights, it was pretty convenient to my office location. There was a girls’ volleyball tournament nearby so the place was crawling with teenagers with minimal adult supervision. That said, it was still fairly quiet and I never had any complaints about noise. There are several other hotels on the same street and several restaurants and a movie theatre nearby for dining and entertainment. Not a bad stay at all.

Room Tip: The floor layout is a little odd, closer to the elevator might be easier but the stairs near a parki...

As soon as I walked in, the smell of vanilla was in the air. The lobby was open, clean, and refreshing. The front desk staff was very courteous and gave my husband and I fresh warm cookies! The indoor pool and spa was clean and inviting. The guest rooms ( I was in a smoking bc it was the only king left) had no sign of smoke so that was a relief. We had breakfast in the morning which was also great, made to order omelets were delicious!

This is a well kept but up to date older Doubletree in the Worthington area. There are several great quality restaurants within walking distance. A really nice movie theater basically right across the street and Polaris Mall is only maybe 10 minutes away. Not too mention only a mile or so away from I-270. A great place for families and business travelers!

I stayed at the Doubletree Worthington for two nights.It was outdated. I only stayed there becuase I prepaid and I could not get a refund. It was my anniversary so i called ahead to make sure everything would be nice for my stay, but the front desk clerk blew me off. I didnt sleep well because there was a dog barking all night. I dont understand how this hotel received 3 1/2 stars.
