We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel while in Columbus for a volleyball tournament. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. I got the best night's sleep! It was a short walk to the convention center and they happily held our bags until the tournament was over. Would definitely stay again!!

Terrific central location

Pros: The front desk personnel, bartenders, and wait staff in the restaurant were friendly and helpful.
Cons: It seemed as though that they charged for some things that could be complementary, such as Wi-Fi.
Location: Two theaters that book Broadway productions and the State Capital are within walking distance and COSI is a couple minutes away.
The location is great to the state capital building and to two theaters, the State and the Ohio. The hotel was busy, there were I think two wedding parties and guests booked at the hotel for the weekend.
