"Retreat"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My husband is a patient at The James and has been very ill When he is in a room that I can't stay with him; the Holiday Inn on Olentangy always welcomes me at a discount rate and I am still close to him. They don't charge extra charges or act like they are doing me a favor. They have a wonderful breakfast and it's always a full breakfast. The hotel is always spotless and welcoming. It is a wonderful retreat and I am always treated very well. Thanks for your wonderful service.
