I just finished a 3 day visit to Columbus and the highlight was staying at the Westin Columbus. The staff couldn't be friendlier or more accommodating. The room had everything. The food was excellent - the Executive Chef even made me my favorite dish when I couldn't find it anywhere else in town. And the location was central to everything...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 April 2017 via mobile

For a historic hotel the rooms are spacious. The lobby is gorgeous. The service is excellent and the location is perfect. The only downside is a valet is a must at $26 a night! I would highly recommend the hotel and would definitely stay again.

My wife and I needed a getaway from the hustle of raising a 9 and 5 year old and decided on an overnight stay at the Westin The hotel and the service was amazing from beginning to end. Crystal Higgins was polite, accommodating and exemplary in the level of detail offered to my wife and I. Great time

I feel a disappointed with the cost versus service. I like to opt for a nicer hotel because I enjoy good service and amenities. The historic building is really interesting and beautiful. The lobby area is very nice. The front desk staff was not overly friendly when we checked in. I asked if they had ibuprofen for a headache and...

While the hotel location is not particularly convenient (it seems a bet detached from the downtown proper), everything we needed was a relatively close Uber ride away. The lobby and public spaces in this Westin are spectacular, lovingly restored and carefully maintained. Each side table in the lobby has an electric outlet, which is an appreciated detail. Complimentary Starbucks coffee...

We stayed here for a wedding and it was lovely. When we walked into our room, both my husband and I felt that the room smelled like old cigarettes. We thought it was probably due to fact that it's an old hotel. None the less, I called the front desk to see if they could put us up in another...

Picked up a great deal on this hotel with Priceline for a one night stay after a Blue Jackets game.

While the hotel is in a historical building with lots of charm in the lobby, the charm ends at the elevator as you head upstairs to your room. Old, old, old hallways and room that is small by any standard, had an even smaller bathroom that barely passes as adequate. Yes? They have done the best they can with it...
