Four Elevators and $28/Night Parking
Posted Feb 14, 2017
I stayed here for a conference. It's a lovely hotel, and the staff were all very pleasant, professional, and polite. My room was surprisingly spacious. However, it cost me $28/night to park my car, which for 4 nights was a lot like getting my car a room for an evening. For full disclosure, I used the valet parking because I didn't know the Columbus area at all, I'm female and was by myself, I arrived super late at night, the weather was cold and super windy, and I was also sick. Had I been feeling better, I may have been up to finding alternative (and hopefully cheaper) parking. The other hitch to my stay was waiting for the elevator. One morning it literally took 15 minutes for an elevator to stop on my floor. I swear that is not an exaggeration. Four elevators for a hotel this size, with as many rooms as it has, is a bit absurd. Again, if I had been feeling better, I would have hoofed it down the stairs. All things considered, I've stayed in much worse places. My advice is to plan ahead - don't make my mistake and assume they've got parking available, and ask to be on a lower floor if possible so you can avoid the elevators altogether.
