Stayed here for a business meeting. The staff was very friendly and helpful from the front desk to the conference center to the lounge. Rooms were very well appointed. Our meals on site were good and the banquet service was good. The location is right by Ohio State. The conference center is tremendous. We will definitely use it again.

Check in was swift and efficient. A seventh floor room was spacious with plenty of desk space to work. The view was over a pleasant courtyard. The bed was comfortable. Free coffee in the rooms and Lindt chocolates at turn down.

Nice accommodations and good value. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Convenient to all campus locations. The amnesties were very nice too including a Keurig in the room. Turndown service with special chocolates each night were a treat. Many of the workers are students in the hospitality and business school and are very trained!

Enjoyed the complimentary 8th floor continental breakfast and afternoon snacks which included coffee, tea, soft drinks, bottled water., and more. The expansive room was very comfortable and cleanliness was maintained the 3 nights that I stayed. The coffee bar and refrigerator area were great added features of the Executive Loft room. The large granite bathroom counter was convenient. Local transportation...

It is so great to see how much you enjoyed the Executive Loft rooms. They are an upgrade from our traditional king rooms and guests like the added amenities that come with the Executive Level. I apologize for the noise though, this is something our overnight staff work diligently on controlling to allow our all of guests the comfort of...

You will be treated like royalty. Wonderfully clean and comfortable. For two bad sleepers, husband and I slept like babies too. The turndown service offered a variety of fruit, snacks, water and chocolate. And then little extra touches in the bathroom. Cozy fireplace set in a little alcove in the lobby.

Stayed with my 12 year old daughter for a dance team competition at the Field House. Location could not be better. Staff was incredibly helpful. Valet parking and luggage storage the next day were great. Room was very clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was there for us. Buffet breakfast in the morning was also great.

The title of my review says it all. This hotel is nice but it is also very expensive. We stayed there because it was very convenient to our son's indoor track meet. The breakfast was very good. We used the valet parking. All in all I would recommend this place.

Thank you for sharing your comments. As the university's upscale full-service hotel, we are convenient for many traveling to campus and offer a number of amenities to our guests. We are glad you stayed with us and hope you will choose again when traveling back to Ohio State!

This hotel is incredibly overpriced. It costs so much more than other hotels in the area, and it doesn't give you half of what the other hotels will. Plus, you have to pay daily to park here. I stayed here over the holidays with my Dad, who is a cancer patient being treated at the James Cancer Center. The rooms,...

Two aspects of this hotel stood out: firstly although a good portion of the staff appears to be college-aged, their training is superb down to even small details such as lexicon and mannerisms. Second, they are set up to support business travelers; check-in was quick, internet was fast and easy to access, and they have a shuttle which can take...

Off season this is a nice hotel as the price is reasonable, rooms are nice, and it is on campus. HOWEVER, I asked at the front desk when i check in about parking and they told me you could valet park for for $18.00 or the parking garage next door, managed by CAMPUSPARC, was $7.50 off peak. Since this was...
