Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We booked this room because it had a sleep couch, as well as two queen beds. We are a family of 5, so this was ideal for us. Originally booked for two nights, but received a call about 2 hours before our arrival that the hotel was having some maintenance issues & that they would like to send us to another hotel for the night. They did this on their dollar & I got a refund on what I had pre-paid for their room. When we got to this hotel the follow evening, it was a sight for sore eyes. The room was clean & fresh smelling, and plenty big enough for 5 people. The staff was excellent & didn't balk when I asked for a late check-out. If I'm ever back in Columbus again... this will be where I stay.

My husband and I were just staying overnight as we had some business in Powell area, but we ended up wanting to spend more time checking out the facilities so we added an extra half day reservation. Every staff member we came into contact with whether it was at the front desk, the Ohio dining hall, the Pub or walking down the hallway was so friendly. The staff seems very happy here and wants to make sure you are enjoying your stay. I have to give a special shout out to Bill in the pub who was extremely helpful and friendly and really stood out during our trip. We didn't have to pay that much more for a suite versus a regular room which really works out great for us since my husband is more of a night owl than I am. The room was comfortable, clean and felt relaxing. Even though it is winter, it was so nice that they had an indoor pool which we utilized with our extra afternoon there. This was our first stay at this hotel and I wouldn't hesitate to go back. I highly recommend this as a place to stay where it is nice and quiet and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The place is nice, but the staff puts it even that more over the top as having excellent customer service and genuinely interested in your comfort.

Great place to stay in Columbus! Perfect accommodations everytime.

Staff is super, very helpful. Rooms are big and clean. Breakfast was impressive. Beautiful landscaping.

Wonderful breakfast with excellent workers. Great job.

We needed a hotel for the night and it was late, we were pleased to find such a nice place for the price. The breakfast was also wonderful. Our family enjoyed the spacious room and the comfortable beds.

Very clean. Convenient to everything in Columbus without being in town. Need hooks for towels in the bathroom area...breakfast could have pancakes or waffles available. Otherwise very good.

Good stay for family reunion--used the pool quite a lot. The breakfast was great too.

Front desk was rude to multiple guests at check in. Room service trays from the guests before lined the hallways. Pool was gross, couldn't see through the water. More like a college campus than a hotel, be prepared to walk to other buildings for anything you want.

Good everything in good order the breakfast was first class

The hotel exceeded any of our expectations, great service. Great locations

Everything was perfect! And everyone on staff, from the front desk to the maintenance guy in the hallway, was a friendly and helpful as can be.

This was a one night trip to Columbus with the family, two kids ages 5 and 7. We visited the Columbus Zoo the first day then stayed here before spending the next day at Easton Mall. The room was comfortable, clean and quite. The sitting room separate from the bedroom was great. We put the kids to bed and spent some down time talking and watching some TV. You can't do that with little kids in a standard room. We stayed here due to a great "mobile deal" rate from Obitz. We used the pool and the kids enjoyed it. Dinner was great for adults. Not much on the menu for kids. We did the buffet and they had some excellent dishes though they were not kid friendly. The kids struggled but we managed to fill their tummies. We messed up breakfast. It is a conference center and everything is done around that schedule. We showed up for Breakfast at 9:30 but it ends at 9am (we should have read the info sheet they gave us at check in) so the $18 per person voucher was no good to us. We discovered that there is a Panera Bread a few blocks away. We would stay here again but probably not with the kids. Still impressed with how quiet it was. I am a light sleeper and have trouble sleeping in most places.

This was an amazing Hotel. I booked the deluxe king room and when I arrived at the hotel the upgraded me to the suite at no extra charge because something was wrong with the TV. The location was great if you plan to go to the zoo or want to do shopping, and it's not in the heart of the city so the traffic isn't bad. My only complaint is that it isn't marked very good so I passed it up the first time. Other than that it was one of the best hotels I've stayed in. Very beautiful and peaceful place.

Our first and last stay! Overriding theme - expensive with paper thin walls and floors - we could hear every little step the above unit made and thought the 800 lb. gorilla was up there. We asked to be moved and the second room had the same issue. There are positives but price and disturbance negates them.

This is a superior place to stay when you want to be close to every area of Columbus - but want to avoid the noise and hassle of a high rise hotel.

The front desk staff person was very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

very nice location quite & off busy road, walking distance to resturants & shopping yes) friendly staff don't like that the sink in the rm. being outside of bathrm. otherwise very nice stay , an a plus for the Free Breakfast only wish they offer pancakes or flapjacks lol! No pets & smoke free is very much a PLUS!
