Good stay
The hotel room was very spacious and clean. The hotel is in a great area and the staff was genuinely nice and helpful. I truly felt the staff wanted to help because of the people they are and not because it was their job.

This is a wonderful hotel with great soundproofing and a well equipped lobby for entertainment. The hotel was full for a football game and there were no noise problems. Lobby was great for gathering, playing games and hanging out. We were slightly annoyed that the hot tub was broke the entire 4 days we stayed. Our only real problem was with the hotel employees not being clear about having alcohol in the lobby. Every day there seemed to be a different policy. Told us we couldn’t have outside alcohol in the lobby. The next day there was a group with many bottles of wine on the table. The employee then said that you could drink on one side of the lobby but not the other? Different worker each day and they all had different rules. Make the rule and then enforce it for everyone! Despite that irritation, would stay here again. Best hotel in the area for OSU parents.

All good!
The hotel was very nice and clean! The people that work the desk and the restaurant were all very helpful and pleasant to deal with. We would like to stay there every time we come to Columbus for a game.

The good with the not so good
The hotel was clean and the bed was so comfy which I need. The room heats up or cools down fast which I loved. The in room dining food is mediocre at best. For example, I had ordered a cod sandwich and the cod was straight out of a box you get at a grocery store. I ended up ordering from Door Dash to rest of my stay. The coffee bar wasn’t stocked and I had to ask for the things I needed. I spent $320 for two nights. That’s a bit ridiculous. Outside
