over rated. never again

My king room was just big enough for a king bed. The exhaust in bathroom didnt work. The window in room, which faces other brick walls, fell out if the track when I tried to open it. It doesn't stay open either. The tub had lots if other peoples hair all over it, clearly not cleaned. The sink gas soap scum film. Def NOT worth the nearly $300 I paid for room. Movie are over $17 on the tv. The valet parking I REQUIRED fir patrons AND they charge $24 for it!! Valet drivers did NOT touch money I left in car! Very proud.

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.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

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.
