Have used the Renaissance Columbus Downtown hotel three times in the last five years as a location for our workshops and stayed there twice. Our last workshop there was in April, 2014. The hotel is attractive, inside and out. The guest rooms are clean, comfortable and have nice amenities. The concierge lounge and the dining room offer good eats and...

Lobby small & unimpressive. We had a suite and the bedroom was small. Glass French doors with sheer curtains separated the rooms. Not conducive to privacy. Bathroom was modern but also small. View from our high up room was another building. Concierge lounge was closed due to Thanksgiving, but we had breakfast vouchers. Totally under-impresssed with breakfast food selections, more...

I stayed overnight for a conference and the staff was extremely warm and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable. The food was OK and valet fast. The meeting rooms were spacious and well maintained. Location was central to a lot of good restaurants.

It was my first visit to Columbus and this hotel made us want to return. The great Downtown location and terrific staff standout in our minds. We were greeted by a friendly Concierge as we entered the lobby. The in-house restaurant hosts and staff informed us about local churches, media and could answer all of our questions. My husband accompanied...

I travel 100% for my job and stay well north of 180+ nights a year in hotels. As a platinum member of Marriott's Rewards program, I see many well-run and not so well run Marriott branded hotels. This one, unfortunately, is in the latter category. First the good - rooms are decent size and well cleaned - but very dated;...

Avoid buying anything at their confection stand in the Lobby. Paid $4 for an apple juice at the desk. Outrageous prices and very poop selection to begin with. Some items are reasonable considering the size or quantities being sold.

This hotel is located in a perfect downtown location and has easy access to downtown by walking (7 minute walk to the convention center) and highways.
