Hotel OK but used hard. You get what you pay for.......

Excellent location to do business in north Columbus/Polaris corridor. Convenient to shopping/dining but in a very congested retail area. Traffic in the afternoons and evenings is a nightmare. Building overall is showing signs of hard use. Lobby first impression is good. Interior corridors have grimy carpets. Rooms are reasonably clean but worn. Furniture is not very comfortable. Kitchen is minimally equipped with utensils and dishes. Enough soap to wash one load of dishes but not enough dishes to get you through the week. No paper or dish towels. Rooms and linens are not changed throughout the week and you have to take the trash out of thpleae rom yourself. Clientele is mostly construction workers. No issue there except the parking lot is full of heavy trucks and mud/grease every where. Several other guests who had been staying at this location for three mopnths complained of vehicle break-ins. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. Responded to and corrected maintenance issues promptly.

Perfect for Buckeye Games

You get to stay just a short drive from the stadium. Amazing location right in the Polaris mall complex with every form of eating establishment and a great mall right there. They state no breakfast on the weekends, but there was a very reasonable breakfast on Saturday morning.

Search for North Market (which isn't very north). Amazing array of eateries to enjoy. Go during the day. Short North is the best night options.

Less than Average

Pictures on Orbitz look nothing like the hotel. The pics show a hotel that is modern and updated, but the actual hotel is dark and dingy. The green carpet throughout the hotel is worn and stained. The suites are cramped and full of dusty furniture.

Extended Stay away

We were on a campus visit to Ohio State University. What was missing, courtesy and professionalism. Our room was awful carpet dirt and stained, broken fixtures. We had late check in (oh my credit card had already been hit for the charge),when talking with the manager she said check in is no later than 8pm! REALLY!!!!

Its a short walk to a large Mall. Saks across the street. High end restuarants nearby within walking distances. Fast food places near by also for people with a small budget

Average Hotel

Check-in was quick but not informative, the room we were staying in was in a part of the hotel that smelled very pungent of indian food the whole time we were there, a plus was that it was pet friendly however there was a cat living outside in a box by one of the doors and it was not a friendly cat especially with my dog, the fitness center is terrible with either broken or extremely squeeky equipment (no free weights), there is no breakfast on the weekends but a fridge in your room and a target next door you can go shop at, they were pretty laid back with check out so we were able to have a late check out our last day...overall an average priced hotel for mediocre service/amenities

Business trip

It was clean and the staff was friendly. The guests next to me were a bit noisy in that the doors are very heavy and make a lot o noise when they close without assistance.
