Great room for the money (2 bedroom, sofa bed, kitchen, 1 bathroom, 3 TVs). Cheaper than king with sofa bed at airport. Problem is shuttle not available at 5 as promised, but they paid for a cab. Shuttle doesn't run late so we'll have to take a cab back to hotel where we paid a fee to park (part of room rate). All in all, can't beat it. Shuttle hours need to be expanded. I can recommend.
The room I stayed in was essentially an apartment. It was fantastic. The two rooms were exactly that: two separate rooms, each with their own doors leading to the common area. There was a ktichen, fridge, decent living space, and nice sized bathroom. My only complaint was that the cabinet under the sink was pretty dirty and creepy looking, but that's very minor!! It would have also been great if the hotel gave lotion with the shampoo and conditioner it provided. The location also seemed pretty run down, but we were safe. Other than that, no complaints. Good stay!!
This suite is excellent for families. We had a suite with 2 bedrooms and queen size beds. There is a nice living room and a kitchen area. TVs in all rooms. Save money and fix your own meals . It's a little outside Columbus but near highways to get anywhere! Kids loved seeing the Jets flying down so low and yet you cannot hear them from your suite! Worth the money.
I called for the shuttle from the Columbus airport (5 minutes away) and was told it was on its way. I called back 22 minutes later to find out the shuttle was still "6 minutes out". I was tired of waiting so I jumped in a taxi. When I got to the hotel the girl working the front desk was on the phone apologizing to the shuttle driver that I didn't wait on the shuttle. I received no such apology. Rooms are old, outdated, and dirty. The dishes in the kitchen were half washed at best and all had to be rewashed before use. Hairs (yes plural and someone else's) all over my bed. Only one small trash can for the entire suite (kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom). I'm on the second floor and there's approximately 13 feet from my window to the ground outside yet my window is barred with screws from opening more than 4 inches. I guess their afraid some one will be so disgruntled by the hotel that they may take the 13 foot plunge in an effort to end it all. I travel and stay in hotels approximately 160 nights a year and this is the first or second time I've taken the time to write a review. This hotel is that bad.
Good for long term stay - close to airport and not very far away from down town. good staff, standard townplace amenities & breakfast. Breakfast room gets crowded on weekends - not sure if its due its size or configuration.
Just an average property and in need of a little TLC and customer service. Rooms are ok but starting to look dated and worn. Basic like shampoo in rooms missing. Plus side is that there are many restaurants nearby, some of which give hotel guests discounts.
I am on another long term project, this time in south central Ohio. Since I will be here until the end of the year wanted to find an apartment with short term lease, which is extremely difficult. I checked out the TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Gahanna, Ohio. I was able to get a one bedroom apartment on the top floor (only three floors) with free wifi, a full kitchen that is fully outfitted with dishes, pots, pans, linens, etc. The property has a fitness center, on site laundry facilities, and an outdoor pool however, across the parking lot is a Spring Hill Suites, a sister Marriott property, that has an indoor pool that TownePlace guests can use. The property offers a shuttle service to the Columbus airport, which is only a 10 minute ride. The entrance ramp to I-270 is less than a mile away, OSU is 15 minutes away, and Harrison Street is five minutes away with full service and casual dining restaurants, Kroger’s grocery store, and other entertainment. The property is showing its age and could use a facelift but the staff makes up for it in service, particularly Christy and Samantha. A limited hot and cold breakfast buffet is offered for a quick bit on the go in the morning.
I suppose there could be friendlier people but you'd probably be married to them. The desk clerk was great. Made our late arrival nice. Rooms were great. Fantastic location. Breakfast was plentiful. Highly recommend!
Given the format of the hotel and the fact that it is a suite hotel I expected more. This hotel was like staying in a cheap apartment complex built in the 1990's. It was fine, but the walls were thin and the ambiance was way more like you were staying in someone's apartment rather than a hotel. The free breakfast was OK, but the room in which it was served was miniscule and cramped for any more than 5 or 6 people at at time. No major complaints other than the noisy refrigerator in the room and the thin walls, but the ambiance was cheap apartment complex rather than nice hotel.
Room was better than expected. Bed was comfortable. The room had a full kitchen. A full size refrigerator, a range, microwave and separate sink. Pleasant surprise. Bath had a fiberglass tub shower combo. Traditional setup. Free breakfast was as expected. Good stay overall.
