JJ and Grant were so helpful with my check-in. I was running late to my conference. Very polite staff. I was given a water bottle at check-in and allowed to keep my car parked close until I could return to my room. Easy walking distance to the convention hall.

In addition to being an affordable, first-rate hotel, the Red Roof Inn Plus Columbus Downtown Convention Center is an outstanding community partner. For years, the hotel, and, most notably, its general manager, Ken, allowed our not-for-profit organization, which raises funding for cancer research via an ice-skating show, to stay at a negotiated rate. We were able to divert the money... More

I used to travel to Columbus frequently while working on my M.A. thesis and I would always stay in this hotel. It is well located, well priced, and of good quality (obviously not as nice as the Hilton or a similar upscale hotel but nice enough for a comfortable stay in a convenient location).
