We stayed here during the Arnold Sports Festival in 2016. It was a great hotel. It was across the street from the Greater Columbus Convention Center. There was so many great restaurants that were walkable. It is the best hotel to stay in if you are going to the Arnold in Columbus.

Stayed here last night. This hotel is in a great location and very close to multiple restaurants, bars, and other attractions such as the arena district. Rooms here are clean and comfortable. Parking is offered across the street for $10 a night. Would stay here again.
