Disappointing

Did not have a good night of sleep. Heater was very noisy. It was going on and off the whole night. Noise from the door of next room closing was very loud.

Not a Good Value

I made this reservation for 6 of our team members who were there for a meeting. Feedback included overwhelming agreement that the beds were terribly uncomfortable and old - permanent impressions where body would be. Also, the hotel was under construction, which we did not know when booking. One of our team members said it sounded like they were working around the clock as the sound of hammers was constant. Final comment was that personnel at front desk were rather rude and there was a bit of confusion about the need for a credit card at check in even though the room had been paid through the online travel service.

Excellent hotel!

I would highly recommend this hotel! Great location, nice sized rooms and very friendly staff. Only bad thing was there isn't an elevator on the main floor to get your cart to your room. I had to walk my luggage up stairs to the floor where the elevators were.

Needs Improvement

This was our first wedding anniversary. We decided to stay downtown in Columbus to visit the International car show, a nice dinner and take in a hockey game. We were expecting a bit more from this hotel and location. We had a choice of many different hotels in the area and most were within a similar pricepoint. The most important feature a hotel should be a comfortable mattress. This was the worst I had to attempt to sleep in a very long time. The jacuzzi, attached to the indoor pool, was foamy and dirty. Gross! I can positively say that the customer service was excellent. The breakfast buffet was nice and priced sufficiently.

Within .3 of a mile and further you can stumble across some very nice restaurants and bars along with the Nationwide arena.

No complaints

I got a package deal on flights and hotel through this site so the price was better than with other hotels of similar quality. It's a 5 minute walk to the sports arena area and the convention center. Plenty of good restaurants within a 10 minute walk in any direction. The room was clean, no complaints on housekeeping. The windows are pretty small so you don't get much natural light in the room. So I guess that would be the one negative I can think of. They have a small but decently stocked bar with free popcorn.

a little bit of a disappointment

was a little disappointed that the hotel staff wasn't more aware of the amenities and attractions in the area of the hotel. I was consistently misdirected to local attractions such as dinner and entertainment spots. I was disappointed to find out that my stay was not eligible for rewards points through my Marriott membership. If I stay in Columbus again, I won't be going back to the Marriott Courtyard.

Disney concert stay

Took my 3 year old granddaughters and promised them swimming. Checked website to make sure they had a pool. Pool was closed. They offered the YMCA pool and gave a paper with the hours. Dressed the girls the next morning, walked in the rain it the Y and it was closed to the public because of swimming lessons. Dragged the girls back to the hotel crying because they wanted to swim. Big disappointment.

Good value for a good location

Decided last moment to head to Columbus for the New Year and found this hotel available online. It is located just south of the Arena district and the Short North, just a few minutes walk to either area. So within walking distance, you have at your fingertips great restaurants, shopping and perhaps a concert or a game at the Arena. The hotel is clean and staff is friendly. It is not luxurious, but if you are looking for a comfortable and clean place to hang your hat while exploring Columbus, this is good as any.

Concert Getaway

We came to Columbus to see a concert at the LC Pavilion and the hotel was within walking distance and lots of great places to eat near by. The window AC was a bit disappointing, but in historic buildings that's what you get I guess. The breakfast buffet at the hotel is worth it. Hard to find a place downtown that's open for breakfast on the weekend. There was nothing special about this hotel, but you can't beat a clean room and VERY helpful staff. The tip about parking in the public lot down the street instead of using the hotel valet was a great one.

We walked to German Village which is about a mile from the hotel. Shopping, German restaurants, and a beautiful park.
