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.

This is an absolutely fantastic hotel, with great history behind it. From the moment you walk in the hotel, you're greeted by the cool 'living wall' to the right before the foyer opens up to a magnificent lobby. The front desk agent told me that the lobby was renovated last year, but that they worked hard to retain the original...

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 at the Westin Hotel for our anniversary post a Blue Jackets game. The hotel is gorgeous! The room is amazing with a super comfy bed and modern look and shower! But don't leave without having some food. Great and friendly staff.. top notch hotel!

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. We needed a double bed room and Richard the front desk person great at doing what he could to accommodate us. We were able to get what we needed. The valet attendants are nice and friendly. The hotel location is...

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...

Really lovely hotel within walking distance of downtown, German village etc. The room was lovely, with the one downside being the drafty/noisy windows. Bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was well fitted. Nice to have a bathrobe and some extras in the toiletries than your average hotel. If you are looking to eat in, the bar food was delicious...
