      $10 per day for Internet. Expensive parking in a public garage. Europe maybe, but not Columbus, Ohio. If you want that, stay at the nearby Red Roof and safe some money.

      The bedding was nice but the pillows were too hard for my taste - and with so many on the bed, having a few softer ones would have been nice;

      This hotel is dreary and has a weird lobby - not pretty, no greenery, very unpleasant. The room was just okay - not much better than a motel these days; the television lacked a menu to select channels so one had to surf - and I was not able to find select channels with movies like hbo, etc. I would not stay here when Columbus has many nicer properties.

      walking distance to nationwide arena

      very thin walls and housekeeping came early in the morning and was vacuuming outside in the halls.

    • Older travelers

      Staff was very courteous and helpful. Rooms were nice but a little more than I wanted to pay.

      Room did not contain information about the local area, maps, or T.V. guide. I didn't like that the hotel charges for internet access.

      Noise! In fact,they give you ear plugs because they know it is noisy. Never have seen that before at any hotel I have stayed at.

      We enjoyed the closness to Nationwide Arena. No driving.

      That its close to nationwide arena I feel that the hotel is aging and that 200.00 plus a night is a little much. I rate the rooms at 150.00 a night
