Hampton Inn & Suites Columbus - Downtown

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Valet parking was easy (thanks Nick). The check in was fast and very friendly. The room was awesome and comfortable. The hotel is located within walking distance of everything. There are great restaurants and the Nationwide arena is a couple of blocks away. I would definitely stay there again.

Went to 'The Arnold Classic' and stayed a couple nights. Nice hotel and close to convention center. Would stay again.

The place to stay for a quick overnight in the Short North. North Market is literally a 30-second walk away, and you can get anywhere downtown within a few minutes. Very handy, great staff, free excellent breakfast.

Hotel was easy to find, clean and nice all around (entrance, lobby, elevators, breakfast area, rooms). The staff was very pleasant and friendly. I wasn't really happy with parking arrangements-downtown Columbus so there weren't many options so I opted with the hotel valet parking garage ($23.00 overnight with $5.00 TIP=$28.00 for less than 24 hour parking).

Great location and friendl people. Overall a good stay.

Its right across the street. Doesn't get anymore convenient.

I previously lived in Columbus for ten years and recently visited for a few days. The new Hampton is close to everything: short north, arena district and downtown. Wonderful accommodations and great staff. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Comfortable and modern rooms. I would definitely stay here again!

Nice hotel, nice room, nice breakfast. The hotel is located in a vibrant area of Columbus with a number of restaurants within easy walking distance including Short North.

While the location is great and the beds are comfy, I felt our king size suite was in need of some cosmetic updating (acceptation is the bathroom which has been renovated). Also, we were disappointed there was no refrigerator and the same old breakfast. No gluten free, lactose free substitutions either.

I stayed here because of the wrestling tournament. It was very clean, staff is very friendly, beds are really comfy. It was a great stay! I will definitely stay here again if I am in Columbus. I will stay at a Hampton Inn again.

I was a little disappointed that a mini fridge was not in room but other than that it was wonderful. The hotel staff at the front desk were above and beyond. I'm actually from Columbus and got the room so I could go to the Gallery Hop. It was within a 5 minute walk.

I stayed one night for a business trip and the hotel met my needs,. Everything went according to plan.

Clean and comfortable room. Great breakfast. Nice pool, whirlpool and fitness area. Highly recommend this hotel! Walking distance to good restaurants and the Nationwide Arena.

We only stayed one night for a competition at the convention center. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The kids enjoyed the complimentary breakfast with friends. Our room was clean and comfy! Most of all our room was warm when we arrived. Usually our rooms are freezing when we arrive so it was extremely pleasant to arrive to a warm room!

This hotel was conveniently located in downtown Columbus, making access to other places real easy.

Good location for where I needed to be, rooms are over priced for what they were but was at least clean

The Columbus Hampton Inn is the best Hampton I have visited. The rooms are quite comfortable and well appointed. The hotel's proximity to the arena, convention center and the Short North neighborhood are terrific. The staff was friendly and helpful. The lobby was being renovated during our stay so I cannot comment. Definitely a fine place to stay.

Great hotel, amazing staff willing to go above the call of duty. There was a renovation going on during our stay but it never interfered with our experience :)

We had a great time, we used the exercise room, the pool and enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. The only minor hiccup was a couple of the machines were out of order in the work out room - but there were other machines to utilize so not a problem. Staff was very nice and extremely helpful.

You can't beat the location of the Hampton Inn & Suites for any downtown visit (especially the Convention Center right across the street). They catered to every need we had. The view out of our room at night was beautiful! The convenience of the parking garage was wonderful! Friends that stayed in other hotels nearby did not share the same opinions of their hotels.
