My mom and I stayed here during my dad's last week of life at The James Cancer Center. The staff was extremely kind and supportive during this week. They remembered me and my mom every time we came through the door, offering words of encouragement. The beds, bedding and pillows were all very comfortable which I was concerned about since I knew each night of good sleep would be critical. I appreciated the quick access to The James from either the highway or the local streets. Overall a great choice when in Columbus--hopefully for happier reasons than mine.

Beautiful hotel, great location, and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Basically all you could ask for if you need to stay overnight in Columbus. I would absolutely recommend this location to others.

We stayed here last week during my move from Tennessee to Maine. Someone smashed my window and stole a backpack out of my car. When I told the staff, they didn’t seem surprised and weren’t very helpful. They did give me some cardboard to cover the window....after I ASKED FOR IT! They took down my number and said they would check their security tapes, but no one had called and no one even apologized for our inconvenience. Another woman said she heard a fight outside their window in the parking lot. Basically the beds are comfortable, but it’s not in a safe location. If you stay here, do NOT leave anything in your car! (Also, my mom tried to leave a similar review on their website and it wouldn’t allow it since it had “critical content.”)

Staff was very pleasant and the rooms were very clean and updated. Nice big breakfast! It’s close to the fairgrounds and about 8 minutes from downtown. I will stay again the next time I’m in the area.

The hotel itself is fine. The staff was nice. We didn't eat breakfast. Our room was newer and had big bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. The marathon across the street was probably the worst gas station I've ever been too. Bars and razor wire on all business windows and fences.. bad area
