What is not to like with metal pipes, 15 feet high wooden ceilings, a huge tub, tile floors, refrigerator, and more.. I highly recommend this to anyone who is sick of boring hotel rooms. I was very impressed the minutes I walked in.

Does not live up to the promise. Disappointing stay. The rooms are noisy. I could hear everything the person next door said on their phone call, to the point where it was distracting on my call. Also, as it is an old building conversion, with some resulting charm, when people walk on the floor above it is very noisy. The... More

Directly across the street from the south entrance of the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Max & Erma's restaurant on the first floor - decent food with really friendly service. The affiliated fitness center is 3 blocks away, so if daily fitness is a priority for you, this might not be a good choice. This hotel is next door to the... More

Efficient staff and easy check in. Loved the free van service to/ from our meetings and restaurants. We had a Double Suite and it was terrific. Only draw back wooden slat blinds for privacy. They did not keep the light out which bled though the sides just enough to keep me awake. The beds were good and the additional robes... More

This was a very unique hotel that was spacious and clean. We had the king suite. The bed was soft and comfortable. It has a separate seating area with leather furniture and another TV.

Excellent hotel in proximity to Columbus Convention center. Max and Ermas downstairs. Short North market is 3 blocks away. The hotel is minimalist with high ceilings.

“Living room could use a bit more light, but keep door open into bedroom, plenty of light. Nice desk in bedroom.”

“Rooms on the north side are going to have more light but also may be harder to darken at night due to convention center across the street”
  • comfy bed and pillows. Wish the blinds made the room darker at night
  • Good work space with 8 outlets, so no problems charging devices
  • bathroom decent, but needed more counter space. 4 outlets
  • comfy chair and ottoman. 2 bathrobes available in the rooms
