"Very clean hotel."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Very clean, staff friendly.

"Super nice front desk people and nice rooms."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I had recently stayed for a festival and would recommend staying here. From the front desk people to the rooms everything was super nice.

"Unprofessional, Unreliable"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Called and made reservations on the phone in advance. I was told I would be able to check in at two am when my flight landed on the 16th and that they would make a note on my reservation. I even offered to pay for the night of the 15th but the employee said I didn't need to and they would make a note about early check in. Showed up at two am and women at the front desk was very rude, degraded us and made us feel stupid for thinking we could check in at two am. I tried to tell her when I made reservations on the phone I was reassured that a note would be on file saying I could check in at that time. She rolled her eyes and said we needed to find somewhere else to stay and then proceeded to go outside on the phone talking about how stupid we were. Then we had to call surrounding hotels to see who had a room at 2am to stay at for less than 8 hours and pay for our second $30 Lyft ride for the night. Plus, we ended up over paying for the hotel room we stayed at for 8 hours since we needed a room so last minute at two am. When we went back the next day to check in, it was a different employee and the process was pleasant. The hotel and room was clean. I reserved two double beds and received a room with one king. The person I traveled with was a male friend. I would have felt more comfortable if I received the room I originally reserved with two separate double beds.. Every other employee we ran into during our stay was very nice except that women we originally ran into at two am on the 16th. She saw us again and rolled her eyes. It only takes one bad employee to ruin the customer's experience. The lie I was told over the phone while making my reservation saying I could check in at two am cost me $150.

"The company that took my reservation was the worst. Will never use again!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Took my reservation and within 30 minutes company changed my dates and they would not allow me to reschedule or refund money for a one day stay. The staff was hard to understand, just a terrible business model. Bad company that makes reservations.

"Location, Location, Location"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This hotel is within walking distance of downtown Columbus' restaurants, Statehouse, theaters, etc., which is its most outstanding attribute. Front desk staff are very friendly. Cleanliness of my room was just okay; despite a special request for re-cleaning a sticky bathroom floor, that issue was never resolved. Vacuuming was not very thorough. Sheets and towels were clean. Breakfast menu is ordinary; hot foods about the most unimaginative I have encountered. All in all, it was good value for the location and I enjoyed exploring downtown Columbus as a pedestrian.

"Horrible!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This was the most overpriced hotel around! There was never any hot water for my showers. We asked for a plunger and did not receive it right away and had to fix the issues ourselves! They charged us more than what was originally booked! In the fitness room, treadmill was broken. If you're having guests who are there for a body building show, you would think they would have their equipment fixed and working properly. Not worth the price at all! It was a $50 per night hotel at a $275 per night price. Ridiculous.
