Shaw's Inn is a great hotel located right in downtown. They offer free breakfast in their restaurant each morning. Room each have a different theme and there are three different price ranges to choose from. Nice to walk around and see some of the old architecture in the city.

We stayed here for my wife's 50th birthday. The search started for a bed and breakfast, which proved a bit difficult since out daughter rounds out a party of 3 and not many B&B's have accommodations for 3 people. So, I switched my search for small hotels nearby to Columbus. The advertising for Shaw's doesn't strike you as impressive at...

Ask a person if they liked the movie and you will get some who say it was great and others say it was awful. Depends on what you like. The positive reviews are from people who like heritage sites like this one, but the problem is the site is more like an as-yet excavated archealogical site that is not being...

We went here for the 1st & only time on Thanksgiving Day for dinner. A waitress dropped a loaded tray right after we sat down. Broken dishes were everywhere. Another waitress plopped her tray in front of a couple that had just sat down & said 'excuse me, this will only take a minute'. It was noisy, the tables were...

This restaurant and hotel are known to many, not only for its many years of continuous operation, but more importantly for its excellent restaurant and boutique Victorian hotel. Rooms vary widely for consideration and range from Jacuzzi Suites to cozy corner rooms with views of downtown or the square. The drinks at the bar are very well crafted and their...

I think this was an old hotel, downsized to a B&B. Very quaint. Comfortable large room. Large king bed with a nice firm mattress. The TV is small compared to today's standard, but it's adequate. Good free Wifi service. Looking forward to the breakfast tomorrow.

Shaw's Inn has the comfort of a hotel and the quaintness of an inn. Every little detail-- from the room to the complimentary breakfast, was perfect. My boyfriend and I had such a great experience altogether. We will definitely be returning very soon!

This is my second visit and since I was with my husband, I went for a larger room. The corporate rooms are idea for a short solitary traveler but a bit small for a couple. The Tuscany room was great and there is even a guest lounge down the hall. We traveled with another couple who booked the Yellow Room....
