Beautiful hotel that’s been converted from an old bank. The lobby is wonderful!! All the staff were very friendly and went above and beyond to help us. Our room was modern, clean and spacious. My only complaint is the parking situation if you’re driving. Do your research ahead of time. They only offer valet parking at the hotel, but it’s not marked well at the only entrance to the hotel, which always seemed to be a congested area. If you choose not to valet, there are a few parking lots and garages around, but who knows if there’s a back entrance of you have to haul al your luggage around to the front entrance. Breakfast was amazing!

Nice Hotel

Very nice room, great staff. Everything was neat and clean. I couldn't have asked for a better experience overall. There are some decent restaurants and bars across the street. We left our car in a nearby lot and used Uber to go across town. I loved the old bank items that were kept when it was converted, and the elevator doors being covered with photos of a vault door were pretty cool. I will definitely stay there again.

Marathon weekend

We stayed here for the marathon in Oct. It was a great location to the start and finish and totally worth the money just for that. I was able to walk to the race start and hobble back once finished. Nice People, great room!

Overall, a good choice.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: noisy door latches, bed bugs in the pullout couch
Good location, friendly service, good value. The only negative was that I think there were bed bugs in the pullout couch.

Weekend4Fun

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Went to downtown Columbus for the Rib & Beer fest. Stayed at the hotel for the weekend last year. Nice. If you can stay in one of the suites...even better. The hotel is in walking distance to a lot of places.

Excellent choice for Buckeye fans

We stayed here last football season and it was a great choice. The staff and management were terrific, had a good hot breakfast bar, and you can pick up a bus ride to OSU for about $2.00 just a block away from the hotel. We chose a two bedroom, two bath, so we could stay with another couple and we had pleanty of room. The renovations of this bank to a hotel was really well done. I would stay again - every bit as good as the Blackwell if you have to be off-campus.
