I chose the Loft in Columbus for a recent stay while traveling with my wife. We got a bargain price on Priceline for a very nice room in a renovated historic commercial building. The front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. Our room's large windows gave views of the city and 12 (?) - foot ceilings gave a sense...

The rooms are big and nicely decorated. It's close to the convention center, walking distance to Short North, the North Market. Honestly, I didn't spend much time in the room, but the bed was comfy and it was pretty quiet.

I seek out Boutique hotels while traveling. I saw The Lofts and knew it was for me. I was certainly right. This is not to be confused with A Lofts.

The Lofts Hotel is an excellent addition to the Columbus hotel scene. Stylishly appointed rooms, wonderful amenities, and an industrial feel--and Max and Erma's for breakfast. What more could one ask for? Great location (very central); convenient parking. I will definitely stay at this hotel the next time I visit Columbus!

“Living room could use a bit more light, but keep door open into bedroom, plenty of light. Nice desk in bedroom.”

“Rooms on the north side are going to have more light but also may be harder to darken at night due to convention center across the street”
  • comfy bed and pillows. Wish the blinds made the room darker at night
  • Good work space with 8 outlets, so no problems charging devices
  • bathroom decent, but needed more counter space. 4 outlets
  • comfy chair and ottoman. 2 bathrobes available in the rooms
