Stayed here this past month and it was fantastic. Huge rooms with lots of space. Staff is so friendly. Met the GM Rob and he was very nice and helpful. Told us about the new bar that's connected to the hotel. It was great and had an excellent offering of bourbons and small plate items. Definitely going back.

Very spacious hotel smack in the middle of downtown. I was attending a conference at the convention center and it was a 15 minute walk there (I could have taken the free bus service). It was only a 15-20 minute walk to the edge of Germantown and the assorted restaurants there. The room was clean. Hotel staff friendly. The downstairs...

This hotel was once a major bank in Columbus. We were delighted that they kept so much of the original interior. It still has 40 ft ceilings in the lobby, and the breakfast buffet area is in the bank vault with the original vault doors and safety deposit boxes. It adds so much character to an otherwise typical hotel. We...

We try to stay at the Residence Inn on Gay street whenever we come to Columbus. We love the location and we love the beautiful lobby from the buildings former life as a bank. Using the bank vault as a breakfast room shows great imagination. The addition of the Buckeye Bourbon House, also in the lobby just makes this hotel...

The architecture in the building was incredible. Loved the bank vault into the breakfast area. Staff was nice, rooms were clean, and there is a cool restaurant located right in the hotel. The only negative was the small workout room, but they do have a partnership with a local gym so they've acknowledged that and made the effort to satisfy...

In town for a concert at nearby Nationwide Arena, which is just over a 1/2-mile walk away. Arrival, valet, check-in, etc. all went quite well and efficiently. Hotel is well maintained. It was quite peaceful on the 12th floor. Our room (queen suite) was beyond expectations. A person could easily live in this room, if necessary, thanks to the kitchenette....
