Hilton Columbus
My entire stay was very nice. The room was very clean although the bathroom walls look like they just finished construction and nobody came back to clean them up. There was also a spiderweb starting from the lampshade in the bathroom up to the ceiling. I ate dinner in the restaurant last night and definitely not worth the cost. The hotel is located in a business Park area so There’s nowhere to walk to to eat. Everything would require a Uber.

Ok stay at a normally excellent hotel.
We have stayed at the Hilton Polaris several times starting in 2010/2011. We have had a gathering of family members at NYE off and on there as well. This is the worst we have seen the hotel. Our room the first night (room 717) had no eating or cooking and the room was around 80 degrees all night. I called maintenance and they brought up a small fan but couldn’t do anything else about it. The next morning they moved us to 716. We wished they would have offered us at least a partial credit or even taken the first night off the bill. I understand the hotel was packed due to a new party idea they tried for NYE but still. For those of us that have been loyal to this hotel for years, it was our first less than stellar stay.

Great stay
Excelent customer service. Sent champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to our room when they found out it was our anniversary.
