Positive Reviews

Impressive rooms and suites

The rooms and suites at the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel attract favorable feedback from guests. The accommodation is generally described as spacious and clean with a good choice of included amenities. At least some of the rooms appear to have been modernized with further renovations planned.

Friendly staff

Guests find the staff at the hotel offer a friendly and attentive level of service. It's not the front desk team that impresses - guests are also complimentary about the attitude of the housekeeping team, the concierge staff, and the valet staff.

Good location

The location of this hotel places many of the city's best attractions, shops, and dining options within walking distance. Other popular destinations such as the university and zoo are just a short drive from the property.

Negative Reviews

Extra charges

Although the room rates at this hotel seem to be fairly competitive for the area, guests do often note the number of extra charges encountered at the hotel. Wi-Fi and breakfast cost extra. Plus, the cost of valet parking and in-room movies is often described as a little pricey.

Valet parking delays

A minor point but a small number of guests mention that they encountered some delays when requesting their car be brought to the hotel. It's worth calling down early to avoid the valet congestion and ensure that your vehicle arrives in a timely manner.

Minor noise concerns

A number of reviews suggest that there are some minor noise issues to contend with. Rooms that are located near the elevators and the hotel's pool area seem to be affected most, so it's probably worth trying to avoid those rooms if possible.
