Good, clean modern hotel. Stairs takes you out to the street, not the lobby.

Hotel is long past its heyday. Rundown furniture, elevator barely working, poorly lit and uncomfortable/not clean bedding. Staff looks demoralized to work there.

The mattersses were phenonemal

Location is nice, very neat and clean. Very classy

We were upgraded by the manager because it was our wedding anniversary. When we arrived, there was champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries in our room along with a personalized happy anniversary note from the staff. Everything was beautiful and thoughtful. Thank you so much for the great experience. Will definitely go back!!!!

Convenient to many very good downtown restaurants.

Perfect hotel downtown providing great amenities and location!

Permitted early check in with no issues. Clean and convenient.

Booked a king received a queen. Was told a king maybe available later. However, given no time frame with no guarantee. Rooms very small for price. Small bathroom out dated. Facility out dated. Asked for umbrella at 8 am and were told all gone and only given option to buy in gift shop. It was raining and we had planned to walk to our meetings. Bar staff very accommodating and friendly. Asked for late check out and denied request.

It was a great stay fantastic staff. Hotel was located in a great place.

My husband and I were married at The Renaissance Columbus and decided to celebrate our first anniversary by staying there for then weekend. When the front desk staff heard about the occasion, our suite was upgraded to the presidential suite!! The staff and hotel were absolutely amazing on our wedding day, and this stay proved to be just as wonderful.

The hotel was very expensive. I was quite surprised to have mold in the shower. For the price I paid for this room I would not expect to have this be present.

While the hotel itself was good I was disappointed in the fact that there was no WIFI or breakfast included despite the expensive price tag. Other than those not being included it was fine.

Beautiful and CLEAN hotel. Location was alright, but did require us to drive to Ohio State and neighborhoods we wanted to visit like Short North. Staff was incredible- so friendly and helpful! We traveled with 5 month old twins and the staff was overwhelmingly helpful in making our stay comfortable!

Hotel was nice and clean. great location downtown. Only problem was the bathroom was TINY. Could barely squeeze in. The door actually folded in half in order for it to open

We love this hotel. Very comfy and the staff is always friendly. Great location downtown.

Clean hotel. Great service. Highly recommend. And that's saying a lot as a Michigan Wolverine!

Everything cost extra but it's top notch, if I go again I'd aim for that place for sure

We stayed overnight and had dinner at a nearby restaurant. Valet services and the other staff were great. Room was not very clean, notably the carpet had not been vacuumed and not all surfaces in the bathroom were wiped down. Hair dryer was not working. I would consider this place again only if the convention center hotels were full.

Room was nice and clean Great bar Great wait staff
