Great location in Columbus Short North. Plenty of food and shopping with easy walking distance. Hotel lobby and rooms are decorated with original art and even the elevator music is a curated collection. Very friendly staff. The valet kept my car at full charge for the entire stay!

Nice stay, lively area of Columbus

Pros: Clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and amenities.
Cons: Offer a small 'shop' or area where guests can buy a soda or small snack. The breakfast/bar area in the lobby would be well suited for this service.
Location: Location is in the Short North of Columbus, the artsy, lively upscale-bar/restaurant areas with lots of fun activity, all within walking distance.
My husband and I visited Columbus for a football game/25th anniversary celebration. I chose this hotel for location and amenities. The hotel is tucked between some businesses and we drove right by it the first time. I was not aware of the $30/day valet service for parking nor the King size bed-room did not have a bathtub (it does have a very nice shower). I inquired about the bathtub hoping for an offer to upgrade however no one offered despite our reason for visiting. It may have been a very busy time, I'm not sure. Restaurants and galleries are within walking distance, we didn't have a bad meal there, it was very enjoyable. Of note, the hotel has no shop or vending machines to purchase soda or small snacks--they do have a well stocked frig and snacks in the room if you want to pay. Upon inquiry, the front staff did offer a complimentary soda (it was after midnight when we arrived).

Dear Julie, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Le Meridien Columbus, The Joseph with the Travelocity community. We are delighted to learn that you enjoyed your experience with us. I apologise that we did not have any vending machines in the hotel for soda and sweets. All of our guestrooms are equipped with small refreshment centres that include sweets and soda. Our front desk is always happy to assist in finding alternative options for you if we do not carry your preferred brand. We look forward to hosting you as our guest in the future and thank you for your patronage. Warm Regards, Oliver W

Not what was advertised...would never return.

Pros: Ryan at the front desk and Blair H. were very kind and seemed genuinely concerned that we were unhappy with our stay. Beds were very comfortable.
Cons: Security, Housekeeping and Valet wait times could be better. Treat all guests the same, regardless of how they booked their stay.
Location: Located right in the Short North District with lots of restaurants, galleries, bars, stores in walking distance.
Beautiful hotel located in the Short North District and surrounded by bars, galleries and high end stores, which may be great on a normal weekend but not when there is an OSU game, weddings, a Furry Convention, Greek Festival and Gallery Hop all going on at the same time. Area was congested, loud and filled with drunk people and panhandlers. The wedding that was being held at The Joseph on Saturday was obnoxiously loud so other guests of the hotel were either forced out of the hotel and into the chaos of High Street or subjected to their rooms as the entire lobby was shaking from the noise from the wedding band. Housekeeping didn't arrive until almost 4pm on Saturday, we asked them to return in 15 minutes when we would be out of the room. Upon returning to our room at 9pm, we found the door ajar and all of our belongings had been at risk of being stolen. When we called the front desk about this, they sent an engineer with 2 new keys, as if it had been our fault that to door had been left open. No Security on site. Ridiculous. We also complained about the noise from the wedding but were told they could do nothing about that. Sunday, housekeeping gave us towels and emptied trash but did not make up the beds. Paid extra for a deluxe view, which was a view of the highway. At checkout we shared our experience but were told because we booked through Travelocity that there was nothing that could be done, not that we were looking for anything. Reimbursed valet costs and 2 coffees.
