Our son is the Program Manager for David Garibaldi, an new era artist. David Garibaldi was performing with the Columbus Symphony on Dec. 5, 2014. So living in Montgomery, Alabama, just an hour plus drive from Columbus Georgia, we went to the concert. I was really surprised at the Marriott and what they had done with the old Grist Mill,...

All family in town for Ft. Benning graduation. Everything from check in to rooms to the food was great. The most comfortable bed I have slept on in a hotel. After a long family day on base it was very nice to know we had such a great hotel to return to. Not far from base and worth the price....

From this first moment, my family & I were warmly welcomed at this beautiful hotel, converted from a cotton gin. This hotel is unique & captures the old world charm that is Columbus.

My frequent travels to Columbus gives me opportunities to stay at the Columbus Marriott. The staff is always very friendly and professional. And I really like how the hotel blended the old with the updated and modern rooms. If you get a chance to splurge, reserve the presidential suite as it is amazing. There is a restaurant on site which...

The best feature about this hotel is its wonderful location. This is an older Marriott that is very traditional. The rooms are ok by Marriott standards. One of the nicest buildings for a Marriott I have seen. We had exceptional service from top to bottom.

We stayed at the Columbus Marriott attending the Southern Tandem Rally, about 90 couples riding tandem bicycles in and around Columbus GA in the last week of October. We found the staff very accommodating and polite considering they were dealing with a generally fit for their age, but mostly older group, dressed in their bright and often tight cycling kits....

It is amazing to enjoy our Columbus Marriott Hotel with not having to use your car as we are located in the middle of so many attractions and the "RiverWalk" on the Chattahoochee River is beautiful.
