    rooms are clean; price is average
    local restaurant Due Amici was wonderful for apps and drinks. Hotel breakfast buffet was pretty gross and expensive. Rooms are very clean and updated. Pool area is nice, but lacks enough lounge chairs. Also, hotel did not do a good job of communicating that it is valet parking ONLY, unless you find a parking lot somewhere and walk to the hotel. Most of the local restaurants are only 3 stars on Yelp. If it's nice, you can walk to other restaurants (about 15 minute walk) that are much better.

    Stylish but could be better
    The hotel is stylish and in a great location. Parking is valet-only and pricey. The biggest drawbacks were a leaky shower in our room that left a constant puddle around the toilet, and the soundproofing was not great. I was woken up in the morning because of noise in the hallways and surrounding rooms. I could hear a woman's entire phone conversation and she seemed to be talking at a normal volume.

    Weekend Getaway
    So we decided to go visit Columbus again, and give the Renaissance another chance.We checked in went to the room,and just as it was on our last visit 1 Washcloth per person, per our request some more were placed into our room. We arrived Friday. On Saturday we left after Breakfast and did not return until about 5:30 pm. No housekeeping, however when we pulled up the Police was at the Hotel, we went upstairs to our room heard a whole of commotions outside of our room and loud voices, so we open the door and the cops are on our floor. Apparently a fight broke out right across from our room. Pretty scary...No apologies were offered by the Hotel Management. Anyways that night we chose to eat at the Hotels Restaurant. My Husband ordered a Pizza and as he was eating it all over sudden he took out something out of his mouth that definitive was not belonging inside of a Pizza. We not sure what it was, but they apologized and took it of our bill. But again no apology from Management. On our floor were a bunch of woman that night that were running out in the hallway, slamming doors and talking really loud. We mentioned it in the morning, and again no apologies from Managements. The room by the way had chipped furniture, the carpet was dirty and has stains, and of course it was dusty a

    Great but need new towels
    The staff, rooms, room service was all very good. My one complaint is about the towels. They are old and rough and need replacement. Hopefully the hotel is planning to renew them soon.

    Freezing cold or boiling hot room!
    The room was freezing and the heat would not work unless it was turned up to 85 degrees. I got very sick after leaving the hotel because I could not find a comfortable temperature. It'd either be freezing cold or steaming hot. For a hotel of this stature, I'd expect more.
