Surprise for the kids

We booked this room as a surprise for our two kids. The plan was to spend the night and swim then go to COSI the next morning. The staff was wonderful and the kids had a blast. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Nice

I was very happy with my two-night stay on a weekend. The room was clean and pleasant, there were lots of choices at the breakfast buffet, and the staff was efficient. I didn't use the pool or exercise room, but they looked nice.

Convention Center Trip

Great location near OSU. Quick drive to the convention center. Check in took only a few minutes. Room was comfortable and clean. Excellent breakfast but it can get crowded when large groups hit the breakfast area at the same time. Excellent water pressure for the shower. Plenty of hot water, maybe a little too hot, be careful when you first turn it on.

Good, clean, reasonable

I needed something close to the OSU Medical Center. This hotel was clean, convenient, and reasonably priced. The breakfast in the morning was a plus. I plan to stay there again.

Everyone was friendly and helpful. The lobby and room were tastefully appointed and very clean. The pool was a delight. The breakfast buffet was an exceptional value with a large array of choices including fresh pancakes! This was Columbus at its best. Thanks!
