Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Hotel was in good location in Columbus. They had valet with one kid on site. There was no one to help with luggage but we could take the luggage wagons. Room was very clean. The shower was hot, and the bed was comfortable. It looked like they offered free coffee in the morning but we did not notice if there was food on site. There was a Starbucks across the street. The hotel could use some updates with rugs but overall a good place to stay.

Nice up-to-date bathroom, comfortable bed. The room could have been cleaned better dusted, the carpet had stains in it. Renaissance in Pittsburgh is better.
