The rooms are so much better. The T V and furnishings are great. The staff; Tarisa and Stephanie really go the extra mile to make you feel at home. The hotel is just a short walk from the Short North which is the place to be in Columbus.

I recently stayed at this hotel for a convention at the Columbus Convention Center. it was a block away from the convention center, near restaurants and shops. Very clean and comfortable accommodations. Front desk employee JJ was very helpful with his restaurant and bar recommendations to take my customers to.

This is a bit late review. I stayed nearly a week at this Hotel when attending a conference at Convention Centre which is located within 5 minutes walk. Initially we could not book this for our whole stay hence checked-in for one night. But James (Receptionist) was very helpful and somehow managed to secure us the room for entire stay....

Andrew and JJ were awesome at the front desk - hip, cool, smart, attentive, etc. Thanks! They had a smile for every customer, the place was clean, the service efficient/fast, and although the breakfast was a bit scant, the restaurant/bar across the parking lot was a great place to hang the night before.

Located in actual walking distance to the convention center, North Market (eateries and social stuff), Spoonful Records (killer vinyl record store), AND Nationwide Arena, this place follows through on nearly everything.

I didn't want to stay here just because. But upon entering my room I was pleasantly surprised. This property was nice I stayed in the King Suite. Very little carpet with modern design. Staff in all areas were very nice. I would definitely stay here again.
