Great location on north side of Columbus. Close to great shopping at Polaris Mall. Room and public areas beautifully updated. Breakfast available for upcharge. Many excellent restaurants nearby. Easy access to I71.

We arrived after a long day of driving, it was already dark and we were not familiar with the area. I commented to the Guest service member James on arrival about being tired and going back out to eat. He made us aware of their onsite restaurant as well as their shuttle service if we wanted to go out. This...

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for two nights while visiting our son for his birthday. We had a king bed room with mini fridge, microwave, keurig, large desk/seating area, TV and alarm clock. The room looked new to us. It was very clean, smelled good and the bathroom looked new, as well. The shower head was the rain...

Had to pay for breakfast buffet $9.99. Food was not good at all! Food at hotels with continental breakfast is way better. I don't mind paying for the Buffett but you should at least have good food!! I will not return.

The lights did not work in the bathroom and entry. Took extended time and 2 times to fix. Then bathroom outlet did not work. Staff was courteous. But the value for the money was poor. We have received better servic at cheaper hotels.

I liked a lot this hotel. It has restaurant, bar on the lobby, spa, swimming pool, gym, gift shop (which simply provide something for convenience but not as much souvenirs available), free shuttle to/from airport and within 5 mile radius. It's even across Columbus' big choices of shops, the Fashion Place Mall which made it too convenient furthermore for guests...

This hotel is very clean and updated. The staff is very attentive. The breakfast was convenient and priced well for all-you-can eat and made-to-order. lots to do in the area; shopping, restaurants, etc. We stayed two nights and will definitely stay again when we are in the Columbus area.

Breakfast food was not worth the extra money. Eggs were cold. Potatoes were hard. Not my best experience with customer service- it was average at best. This is a Hilton so you expect a quality that speaks Hilton. This place doesn't meet that quality in their staffing. Overall, it was clean and conveniently located but I won't pay that price...

The lobby of this hotel looks like it was recently renovated, has plenty of space for meeting, hanging out as well as small bar / breakfast area. My King room was spacious, clean and the shower is huge!

The bed ed and pillows where not what we are use to and air conditioning was not working up to our comfort level. No matter what temperature we set it on it would kick on and immediately kick back off.
