The rooms were very nice and clean, everyone was so nice , especially Kenneth who not only was our waiter but was always great with directions and helping us find our way around townwas. All the staff was so pleasant. Plus my daughter really enjoyed the heated pool. Will definitely recommend.

We had a lovely updated room and enjoyed a tasty dinner in the restaurant. Employees were both friendly and helpful. The bathroom was small, but had a granite counter tops and interesting towel racks. An enjoyable stay.

I had to stay here for 2 nights. Some of us come to Columbus annually for the work-related convention (the Ohio School Boards Association) that is held in the Convention Center. Unfortunately, the rooms in the good hotels were sold out and we were stuck with this facility as the consolation prize. Located directly across the street from a Greyhound...

We stay here for business and I have no choice at that so I try to be as objective as I can. This place is very 1980 s with outdated furniture wallpaper and carpeting. The bathrooms are extremely small but I guess if you're looking for a very average place to stay this is it. The lobby and downstairs area...

This hotel gives fabulous rate to families with a patient at Grant Hospital which is just a block away. They could take advantage and charge for the convenience but instead they do the right thing and help us. Staff is super helpful and friendly. Not gourmet but nice dining room with super helpful staff.

This review is especially for those considering a stay at this hotel while a family member is in Grant Medical Center.

I arrived early morning and had no problems and no additional charges with early check-in. My room had only necessary things (no fridge and microwave oven) but was clean and ready to live.

Usually when I stay in Columbus I stay in the Arena District.

Being Downtown is about the best thing going for this property and yet the closest business appears to be the Greyhound Bus Depot and some less than ideal characters that loiter around that. Close enough to the Capital and a couple of blocks to other destinations but not ideal. The room was spartanly furnished and the shower reeked of 19080's...
