Positive Reviews

Convenient choice for OSU.

The hotel is less than two miles from the campus of The Ohio State University, making it a popular choice for university visitors and sports fans attending games. Additionally, guests report that the hotel is conveniently positioned for many Columbus destinations, including the Jerome Schottenstein Centre and Greater Columbus Convention Centre.

Clean and fresh accommodations.

Past guests describe their accommodations as being clean, fresh and nicely decorated. According to reports, a recent remodel has breathed new life into the property, with some guests surprised that the hotel isn't a new-build.

Good quality hotel facilities.

Favourable reports have been received regarding the hotel's on-site facilities. Guests are generally impressed by the indoor pool and fitness centre, while even the complimentary hot breakfast buffet receives praise.

Negative Reviews

Sound of heavy doors proves disruptive.

According to reports, the hotel features heavy doors that swing shut, resulting in a loud, clanging noise. Many guests have reported that this disturbance has kept them up at night.

Shuttle service can be very busy.

The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service to locations within a three-mile radius of the property. Not all guests have found the service as helpful as you might think. According to reports, the shuttle service, which is shared with a neighbouring hotel, can fill-up very quickly. As a result, spaces on the shuttle bus aren't always available at peak times, leaving guests to seek alternative transport.
