My husband and I stayed 2 nights at this hotel while he was attending a conference. The room was nice and clean and the grounds were well cared for. The first thing that was a bit frustrating with this hotel is that it required a 2 night stay. Our initial plan was to drive into town on Saturday morning and just stay 1 night. I thought they must have that requirement in place due to the conference being held there that weekend and not wanting to tie up rooms for 1 night when they could book it for 2 nights. I thought that the hotel must be full. Well, it didn't seem full at all.
Breakfast was included with the cost of the room, and it was a nice breakfast, not fantastic, but nice enough. The service was great because I was the only in the restaurant at the time. Most of the people, I am sure, were eating with the conference that my husband was attending.
My husbands conference ended at noon and I called down to the desk to try and see if we could extend check out just a few minutes so that he could return to the room and change his clothes. I didn't think it would be much of a problem as the hotel didn't seem full. When the front desk answered, they immediately said it was impossible to extend checkout at all.
The workout room was well equipped and had an adjoining bathroom and water cooler. The pool area looked nice, but it was too early in the season to be open.
It is located not too far from some of the great shopping available in Columbus, but I think the next time I will just choose one of the hotels closer to the shopping and restaurants.
