Biz trip

marvelous lobby with adjoining Thurber's Bar. Floor #3 had very tired carpeting - my room was TINY - no electrical outlet on work table to re-charge iPad. Bath very small, but liked 2-headed shower. Bed SUPER comfy. Windows HORRIBLE - very much in need of cleaning, especially outside.

Average stay

Nice place...great location. Staff was average and they added an extra tip to what I had originally tipped. Keep an eye out for that. Extra charge on valet too.

Great Place to Stay

The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend using the valet if you drove and if you need a cab make sure to call down ahead of time. The rooms were very clean and the beds were quite comfortable compared to other places I've stayed. The shower head is a bit too low for anyone over 5'10, but otherwise the bathroom was well kept. The downtown location was nice and I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Columbus.

If you need a cab make sure to call down to the service desk well in advance (15-25 minutes), especially if the weather is bad or there are any big events downtown.

Rooms too small

The Westin is nice, but room was extremely small. Some of the staff were very hard to understand what they were saying. I stayed there on Friday and another downtown Columbus hotel on Saturday and the other hotel was great! I probably won't stay at the Westin next time.

Great place to stay for Xmas visit.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay at the Westin Columbus. Upon arrival, I joined the Starwood Preferred Program and got a free upgrade to a suite with a king bed, which was a nice way to start the stay. The room was very nice, and for the most part, pretty quiet (I could hear people walking by if they were talking, but that was to be expected). The only issues I had with the stay were that (1) I couldn't use the wi-fi on my phone (though I had no problem using it with my laptop#, #2# the fitness room was rather small with not a lot of machines to use, and #3# the parking was $20/overnight #and staying for 4 nights it added up#. However, I realize that this is a hotel located downtown, and downtown parking in any city is going to cost money if it's not included in the hotel fee #and, by signing up for the Starwood Preferred Program, I got a night free, so that was nice). Would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to others.

Good for business

The Hotel is good, even if the invest more in the lobby and in the common areas more then in the rooms ! Overall very good, but the room was a little small and 4 stars and up hotels should ALWAYS provide FREE WiFi connection and FREE breakfast. The exercise room was very very good !!!

Great hotel and concert spot

Classic historic, yet totally modernized hotel originally known as the Great Southern Hotel and Opera House. Spent the night and attended a concert in the adjacent restored opera house. Appreciated the direct entrance to the venue from the hotel, right there in the main lobby. Enjoyed the entire experience. Will do it again.

Entertainment tip: In Hotel

Several pubs around the block and a nice bar with windows on the sidewalk in the hotel. No better place to stay if from out of town and attending an event at the Southern Theatre. It is right there!
