I expect more when I visit AC properties The location is great and the front desk staff is friendly and accommodating The food options were limited as we visited on a Sunday evening during COVID, which is fine However, the rooms themselves seemed to be quite dirty for a newer hotel

The cleanliness was more in line with what I expect at a Days InnThe room I was initially given had a stained mattress, so I requested a new room and noticed this room had red stains in the exact same spot next to the nightstand Apparently the construction of the bed leads to any spills on the nightstand staining the mattress a blood red color since the bedframe and nightstands are connected They could mitigate this by putting washable bed bug covers on the bed, but instead they have cheap torn mattress covers that don’t protect the much of anything We also noticed that the floors in the room were very dirty in both rooms and our feet tended to stick to the floors We walked on them briefly in white socks, and noticed right away that our socks were turning black from the dirt We made sure to wear our shoes the rest of the nightAlso, when booking on the Marriott app as a gold member during a low vacancy time period, I listed a high floor, extra pillows and a crib or pack and play as my requested preferences; none of those were accommodated without me having to request them again after checking into our room when we noticed they weren’t there It wasn’t a big deal, but would have been nice to have them available as soon as we arrived since we were tired and wanted to put our newborn to bed

The AC Hotel was the hotel we had our wedding hotel block at, and they were absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish! Shay was so responsive and so helpful with all of the set-up And all of the management staff went above and beyond to make us and our guests feel welcome and taken care of Would absolutely recommend working with this group!

Neelam Patel

The hotel is new, looks great, love the king bed room with a sofaBut special mention to Ali and their friendly staff Ali made us feel extra welcome and was honestly a reason we would come back here sooner

Unfortunately we did have a guest who was staying above us walk around til 1:30am and woke me up in the morning too as I’m a light sleeper But I think that can happen any place

Everything was so amazing! The views were so nice! Our room overlooked Goodale Park which is gorgeous this time of year The food was so flavorful and fresh! We left to go bar hopping and ended up coming back because we wanted to enjoy more cocktails and delicious food 😋The staff were all so nice and the location is just a great spot The North Market is across the street and such a fun place to visit

We will definitely be back!

45 Stars, rounding up to 5This hotel is BEAUTIFUL — I love the modern aesthetic

My husband and I booked a corner suite for a weekend anniversary getaway It’s perfectly located just a block west of the Short North, and you can see Nationwide Arena, Crew Stadium, and Clippers Stadium from the hotel — all are a short walk awayLocation aside (and it really is a fantastic location), our suite was INCREDIBLY spacious and well-appointed I found the bed a little hard for my taste, but my husband loved it, so I think it’s a matter of preference The pillows were quite comfortable, and the bedding was immaculately clean We loved the overhead rain showerhead in the bath, and appreciated the wall-mounted shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispensers — they’re so much better than all those tiny plastic bottles I will say the bathroom floor could do with a little more thorough cleaning; I dropped an earring back and while looking for it, found more debris than I would have liked Otherwise, everything in our suite was comfortable and clean It was also nice and quiet (and we were very concerned about noise given that it was the St Patrick’s Day pub crawl that night)The rooftop bar, Lumin, has fantastic cocktails and a delightful staff We enjoyed drinks and appetizers before we went out for a show, and ended our evening with a nightcap there We’ll definitely return in warmer weather so we can sit outsideThis was a delightful getaway and the AC will be at the top of our list the next time we stay in Columbus

Eileen Donohue

I had a wonderful visit to the AC Hotel I needed to be downtown and it was a perfect location Adjacent to North Market provides lots of interesting food options

I have dietary restrictions and the staff in the dining room were superb and helping me navigate the breakfast buffet Shout out to Marlana and Shay for going above and beyond

I am a little late writing this review but I wanted to share how enjoyable our stay was May 31-June 6 The service and hospitality were out of this world Everyone including reception and housekeeping were so friendly and quick to help with our requests

We very much enjoyed our suite The location of this hotel is great There are restaurants with lovely patios, a great coffee shop, and a fun place called Pins all within walking distance We grabbed breakfast to go at a diner across the street Thank you to everyone at the hotel for helping make our visit with family so fantasticCheryl & Lee

Tonya Strazdins

Hotel LeVeque is a gorgeous, refined hotel in downtown Columbus I stayed here for a night in February as a birthday surprise for a friend and the staff were welcoming and helpful in assisting us with our plansOur room was spacious and beautiful and continued the constellation theme throughout

There is a very homey feel in the room as you don’t really hear any of the goings on throughout the rest of the hotelWe were able to grab drinks at the keep and the in house restaurant only enhanced our experienceLike I mentioned, it was a Saturday night in February and I expected there to be valet but there were only piles of snow in any convenient drop-off location in front of the doors There’s a parking garage for the hotel but I wouldn’t classify it as super convenient This would be my only gripeOtherwise it was a great experience!

Taylor Ray

There will always be negative reviews no matter where you are but I wanted to make sure that I left a genuine review on this hotel

We only stayed for one night, to split up our long 14 hour drive home but I would have stayed much longer if I could’ve Everything was absolutely perfect and shining clean The staff was incredibly nice and helpful Amenities were perfect The pillows were phenomenally comfortable! And the shower was to die for! Everything was just like the pictures! I am not getting anything from the hotel by doing this review, I just want to let everyone know how incredible it was! I hope your stay was as great as ours Thank you Hotel LeVeque and your staff!

As a frequent traveler and a member, will definitely not stay at this location on my next tripFront Desk staff was very nice and helpful at check-in in but, we get to the room and the bathroom was not well cleanedThere was no tissue papers in the room nor the bathroom

Toilet paper was almost finished and we still have not received any as I write this review even though I have asked for oneI tried calling the Front desk and no one is picking upThere is no sign for do not disturb in our roomWe specifically asked for microwave when booking and was told they would provide it, we got to the room and there was no microwave so I had ask and was told they have it only in the suite so I insisted the check the recorded call before I was provided with oneFor someone who doesn’t know much about staying in a hotel and the standard amenities that comes with it, this hotel will be paradise for them but definitely not for me and my family

Kelbi Harman

Room was dirty, pretty sure bathroom hadn’t been cleaned from previous guest Soap was missing from the box on the counter Needs updating on things that are broken or damaged

Some lights wouldn’t work, or the phone or alarm clock Food/stains on walls,carpet and around lights by bed Hot tub was completely yellow and pool was not clear and had stuff floating in it Front desk staff was nice and helpful Location was good But I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone We used a recommendation from a local store to stay here and I’ve notified them of the conditions of the hotel and that maybe they should pull their recommendation from the website We didn’t even attempt to try breakfast The ratings on this are very misleading It wasn’t a good stay at all

Beth Gelhar

You’re mostly paying for the location of this hotel in my opinion The place is a bit run-down Our room was clean, but had some noticeable issues

They didn’t provide enough towels and getting extras was difficult (we had to resort to grabbing pool towels at one point) Our mini fridge had what I can only describe as a god-awful smell- to the point that it was unusable The mechanism for the window shade was broken, so we mostly just kept the shade down because getting it to move was very difficultThe staff was very friendly and hard-working, so we appreciated that And breakfast was on-par with other Holiday Inn Express locations That said, I probably wouldn’t choose to stay here again simply because it was not a good value for the money

Ryan Herbert

Very nice hotel not too far off the toll road My kids were amazed that there were people in suits since we don’t usually stay in fancy hotels The property is shared by a Residence Inn, which might have slightly lower prices

The pool is a little small but was good enough for our needs The executive lounge (if you have enough Marriott status) offered a very good breakfast that filled up all my kids

Kyu Kim

Stayed here while my daughter and I visited OSU

was very impressed ! Rooms are clean and spacious and quiet The bed was super comfortable ! Staff was very accommodating especially the front desk people At first, I had trouble finding parking until I realized they have a huge lot in the back Bar is nice too – we only had their continental breakfast for $13 so can’t really comment on the restaurants However, I would advise eating at a local restaurant as so many great options in Columbus

Gigi Lulu

For a Marriott Hotel, I expected a lot more I’m going to give a fair list of Pro’s and Cons’sPros- Hotel is beautiful, truly feels like your classic Marriott hotel Very modern and updated, lobby furniture is comfortable and lots of plugs

– Staff is extremely friendly and accommodating Nothing felt like a hassle or like we were wrong for asking a question, they were fantastic!-Rooms were clean and well kept upon arrival-Pool was Heated-Fitness center had fresh water and had a decent amount of machinesNow for cons which unfortunately there are more than pros, in order from least importance to most importanceCons-There was no microwave in the rooms Not a big deal but if you’ve already had a shower and you’re in your pj’s, it’s kind of a hassle to put on some sweatpants or a jacket to walk all the way downstairs to the lobby, make your food, and then take it back up At that point it’s not even really hot anymore-Despite the pool being heated, the AC was blowing in the room with the pool which made it kind of cold despite the water being warm-Pool was very small I understand this is more of a “conference” hotel but for a hotel of that size, it should have most definitely been larger-There was no Jacuzzi/Hot tub It’s like they think corporate people don’t like to sit back and relax either, I was very disappointed about that-I didn’t expect complimentary breakfast but holy cow it was $1295 per person if you wanted it And it wasn’t made to order You could walk next door to Bob Evan’s and get a made to order breakfast for about the same price or about $2 more- The shower head had very low water pressure Thankfully my father was traveling with me and was able to tighten it and fix it but if it had just been me I would not have been able to reach it or known to fix it like that-The bathroom door is a sliding glass barn door While it looks cool and is nice, since there is no real door, you can hear everything from the bathroom in the room……-The hotel is very large and the lack of signage makes it very confusing! They need to hand out a little map to everyone when they check in I know many people who got a lost in these combined hotels on this trip Even the elevators were confusing cause they all have weird quirks to them-In order to get daily housekeeping you have to call down to the front desk and “request” it This doesn’t necessarily bother me as they may not have enough resources to clean everybody’s room everyday However if you are someone that wants fresh towels each day you need to request housekeeping What DID bother me is that no one had informed us at check in or any other point that we had to call down and request daily housekeeping Once again, my issue isn’t having to request it, it’s that no one let us know we had to request it in order to receive the service Towards the end of the first day we called to the front desk and asked why there hadn’t been any housekeeping that came by and that’s when they informed us- and put us down for daily housekeeping after that-This is my biggest grievance The temperature and climate in the rooms is out of control The room was literally humid Like the air was thick and damp Made it very hard to sleep The only thing that kind of helped the humidity in the room was turning the air on but oh my gosh it was freezing! There’s only two settings for the AC and the one that blew the air less made the room extremely humid and the other blew freezing cold air on your face the whole night, no matter which way you turned the vents We even tried adjusting the temperature and turning off the fan but it didn’t do much Ultimately left with a choice of freeze or struggle to breathe Absolutely horrible It was not just our room We traveled in a very large party and everyone else said the same thing I literally asked everyone in our party- no jokeI’m giving it a solid 3 out of 5 For a “luxury” brand it was not a “luxury” experienced but it could have been much worse I would not stay here again given the choice

It’s way over price I had a one king size bed room The Roman was fine but there’s no microwave, a really small fridge with no freezer space, and no laundry facilities on site

Plus, they take money out of your account on weird days not the day you check in, so my bank account got all messed The staff is fine just know you’re paying a lot of not that much

Vonessa Henry

Room was booked using points, get here and now can’t use the points Room had something brown smeared on the couch, big pieces of crumbs on the floor, fridge did not work From the outside the hotel is really nice but inside is like a motel but with a hotel price

We normally stay at Hyatt House, will continue to stay there That is a 5 star hotel


Found spiders in our 1st room In the bed with us and and everything Cob webs everywhere… seems like maintanece said a spider had babies in there right before we arrived 🤷🏾‍♂️ Anyway, housekeeping manager came after maintenance and checked it all out

I took d pics and video All of us were disgusted, but wound up moving us to a room they had me to inspect with them That room was fine, I finally talked to the manager and she offered points to us and I asked for 2 cookies No free night… but I think this was just a one off situation That’s why I gave them 3 stars I still think more could have been done seeing that we were out in a VERY SMALL room when we 1st arrived So this was actually our 3 RD ROOM in this hotel I usually have amazing experiences at any Hyatt Place I stay in and this was the toughest stay I’ve had PS They did give us a free late check out

Super trendy The whole aesthetic of the place is 5/5 Very modern

Bartenders whip up some great drinks! The rooms and a little small and lacking a small refrigerator, but honestly that’s the only complaint I haveand if that’s the only complaint, I consider it a perfect experienceThe nice fire to enjoy drinks around was a massive plus!OH andthey really do take care of the cleanliness of the entire hotel and meet the cleaning standards of what is needed to keep covid at bayWe will most definitely be returning and recommending to friends and family!

Team Minney

My husband and I enjoyed our stay They had everything we needed and coffee and bagels for breakfast There is also an awesome restaurant attached but not affiliated

We stayed on a Thursday night on the 7th floor and could still hear the bar below us going til 2:30 So if you are looking for a quiet hotel maybe not this one I also would not bring my kids to this hotel It’s more of a upscale and modern hostel Neat concept and friendly employees You will pay for parking so be prepared

mark kotch

My wife and I stayed for a short trip It was very trendy We had a amazing view

Loved that they give you beer tokens when you check in at the bar The 6th floor terrace was a relaxing spot to hang out The roof top bar Mandrakes was awesome! The view and atmosphere was great and it was a short elevator ride to our room after The short north area is also awesome we did a food tour All the art and shops were nice as well We will definitely be back much more to talk aboutMy only complaint would be I wish the rooms had a mini fridge, but we had a cooler so no problem

Great room, fantastic staff and superb location We experienced a power outage in the neighborhood and the staff was apologetic even though it wasn’t their fault The valet service was amazing

Everyone was helpful and friendly This was my first time in Columbus I’ll definitely come again and stay here Well worth it Unique and fun decor too!

Caleb Huck

We cannot say enough great things about this hotel! Not only are they accepting of all races, genders, religions or anything, but they are also super dog friendly! The service has been fantastic from everyone on the staff and the location on High is perfect! The rooms are very standard but have fun decor and quality finishes and fixtures We try to look for a Graduate hotel whenever we travel, especially if it is with our 🐶 Happily recommend all the time!

Elizabeth Vandergrift

My husband and I had the most amazing last day being in Cincinnati! Our original hotel wouldn’t let us extend our days leaving us to find one before check out I came across this gem and am so pleased that I did!! We love the esthetic and that it is pet friendly! Loved that down town was minutes away driving!! The staff were incredibly sweet and personable! I will definitely be staying here every visit I make to Cincinnati!!!!! Thank you staff of The Graduate hotel!!!!

We stayed for a family vacation The room was enough for four people We ended up staying in the hotel more than we thought, it was a fun place with kids

The pool is definitely more quiet during the morning, it is open all day long We really enjoyed the breakfasts, it was big and reasonably priced The dinner selection wasn’t too big, but everything was great We are planning to return Thank you for the great service!


Incredibly amazing and friendly staff, 2 ladies in the morning, 2 gentlemen in the evening – all were very attentive, very caring and helpful Hotel is conveniently located downtown Columbus, OH and has all the amenities including a swimming pool and 24HR gym Complimentary breakfast was outstanding and staff at the restaurant was phenomenal, even though it was busy at times

I had a great stay, rooms are very nice and clean, got everything you need Rooms are pretty spacious and have a fridge too The location and the hotel are safe, cozy and quiet

Al Abbasi

IHG continues to set lower standards for itself and then failing to meet them My stay was 5 nights and total cost of the stay was around $1400 I was told at check-in that I could request one cleaning only during the stay, so I requested it for Sunday and gave 24h notice

Front desk told me that he would need to ‘ask’ housekeeping if they could do it They did not come on Sunday or Monday and my checkout was TuesdayIt’s a 12-floor building and only one out of the 3 elevators work, creating huge congestion in the morning I was at the same hotel this time last year and it was the same Have they been broken for over a year? The hotel is dirty, I saw this same piece of popcorn for 3 days in the only working elevator and nobody cleaned it None of the ice machines work and the a/c in the room smells dampThis hotel would be a rip-off at $50 / night, let alone $240/night You’ll get better service at a red roof inn or other budget motel at a fraction of the price Even as a platinum rewards member, they failed to include the amenity points at the start of the stay

Viktoriya S

We wouldn’t rate it more than 35 It was okay

On the good side: it was clean and had soaps; bar was opened until midnight and cocktails were good On the bad side: no food or snacks in the hotel at all No breakfast or coffee We were told their kitchen was not opened Sunday/Monday Do they really need their kitchen to stock up shelves with some snacks and make a coffee? They list breakfast on their website and we were charged full price My husband asked if we were going to have some discount since we didn’t have breakfast, he was told no The room was reserved for two, we had only one k cup in the room Although, they did give him a couple more when he went to the lobby to ask for it We will not stay there again This hotel stay is worth $89, not $119 that we were charged But we know it is not typical of Cambria We stayed at another Cambria in Greenville SC and it was much much better Cambria in Columbus OH is the one we didn’t like

Robert Ketler

I am completely floored at the poor condition of the hotel we’re staying in Cambria Hotel in Columbus/Polaris is a joke We are paying almost $350 for 1 night

I would expect near perfection for that priceWebsite claims to have a restaurant/room service Was told when we checked in that they haven’t had a restaurant in nearly 2 years The hot tub is broken They have construction going on None of the ice machines work on any floor except the first Elevators were dirty Tables pushed up against the wall Almost looked abandonedOur room curtains are ripped Lamp shades are broken Jacuzzi tub bubbles didn’t work Furniture scratched up Looks like it came out of a 50 year old motel 6 Missing knob on dimmer switch Cobwebs on the ceilingFor $350 a night I would expect more Would have also been nice if someone would have contacted us with the problems before booking it

kelsey ziomkowski (Kels)

The two rooms I stayed in were nice, but they both need some updating, especially the bathrooms Why all hotels think water isn’t going to leak all over the bathroom floor from the shower I have no clue- but there is no shutting the shower doors in those hotel room Pillows were too small, and mattress was a bit too firm for me

I had to be switched to another room because the battery stopped working on my thermostat and it was hot, but in the other room, the fan sounded like it was a plane engine ready to explodeThe front desk agents were not the friendliest and the overall experience was just not the most pleasant

Staff was EXTREMELY kind and helpful! From the moment we arrived, the valet was there to assist us, take our bags, help with our mountain bikes, give directions, etc The front desk also went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed Rooms were a bit pricey, but the hotel is in a great location and if the staff is going to be that great, I don’t mind paying extra

We will be back!

Our stay was okay My husband and I thought it was outrageous that the hotel charged $3200 per day for valet parking

The valet service is pretty good It seems to be an outside company Other parking options are limited Due to the location of the hotel the unloading/ loading zone is very small You might have to circle around the block until someone leaves, which can be frustrating No one came to our room for housekeeping service I told the housekeeper that we were leaving in an hour and she never came back The iron was broken- had to go to the front desk and ask for a new one If you go down for breakfast you have to pay- no complimentary continental breakfast The shower was terrible, the water trickled out of the shower head The toilet didn’t flush well either Needless to say, I probably won’t go back Thank god, I found wine at DG two blocks up

Just got back from this place and what a surprise! I’ve stayed at Westin’s before and loved them but not this time I get that it’s being remodeled or renovated but it’s pretty bad They have a sign that apologizes for the inconvenience but they still charge you full price

They don’t have a restaurant or bar open but they do have a small room with tables and they have a tarp draped over part of the room to cover up a bunch of junk and that serves as the place to mingle, I guess The lobby and front desk area is extremely cold, so cold you must wear a jacket or coatWe had two rooms there but I’ll never go back There’s no one around so you have to ring a bell and hope someone hears it!They should either close until the renovation is complete or charge a lot less than full priceThey were not transparent to the extent of the renovations on the website and that just doesn’t sit well with me Too many nice hotels around there so we won’t ever go back to this one

I enjoyed my stay overall The room was pretty nice, a little bit dark though I was disappointed that there weren’t bathtubs but no big deal

The TVs apparently have a way for you to connect your device and stream to it but I could not figure that out at all There weren’t any hotel guides or area guides in the room, not a big deal at all but something that I always enjoy A map of the hotel would have been handy since it took me a while to find the ice machine and other spaces I was there for a conference and multiple people complained that they had no idea where to find the ice machine Again, not a huge problem at all but it would be an easy little change to make life easier Overall, I enjoyed my stay It is in a great location, nearby some of the best restaurants in the city, and I would stay here again

I usually don’t leave reviews, but I was disgusted with the level of customer service from the front desk staff and the cleanliness of the room There was a clear difference in the way in which I was communicated with by the front desk and I made sure to mention that as I checked in and out Maybe a diversity training would be beneficial for staff

In terms of room cleanliness, it looked as if the room hadn’t been cleaned at all Very dusty and hair everywhere from last guest Luckily, I brought my own cleaning products from home in case this happened The point is, I came to this hotel for a meaningful conference, but the hotel didn’t provide a pleasant experience for me Please address!

Ruta P.

Nice hotel with beautiful suites We had VIP Suite with separate dining area, wet bar and city views Very clean and well organized

Front desk staff very professional and very friendly We came for the sporting event and loved the idea that hotel is actually connected with the venue so didn’t have to leave building to enter the convention center Hotel itself had a restaurant and a bar with not that many options for dining, that’s probably only negative thing I would see but since it is located in the downtown, there were quite few places you could go to Close to the airport, 15min drive which was very convenient We used hotel car service which was very easy to book and they were also ready for us to leave when we were heading back to the airport Overall great experience

Ladies – read this before booking a stay here! I travel frequently on business; most often alone Last week I stayed at this hotel with 2 colleagues The hotel was in very poor condition but I overlooked the many issues because it appears they have started a renovation somewhere inside {certainly not in the room I was in!} What I can’t overlook is a very serious safety concern with this hotel

One of my colleagues’ key cards stopped working in the middle of our stay He went to the front desk and the associate asked his room number and gave him new keys with no verification whatsoever! She didn’t ask his name, and she didn’t ask for an ID This is very concerning to me as she had no idea if he was an actual guest or a stalker that was about to enter a room and wait on an unassuming guest to arrive later This is inexcusable! Earlier in the week, another colleague was able to charge something to his room with zero ID verificationWhile nowhere near as serious, it does tell me that not verifying guests identity is a consistent issue here Travelers, and especially women, book reliable hotel chains when they are traveling alone and their safety should be the highest priority of hotel chains I have tried twice to reach the GM of the hotel, John Hickey, but he has yet to call me back even though I left detailed messages explaining I had a serious safety concern I’ll never stay at this hotel again…if you do, I suggest checking the closet before locking your door for the evening

This hotel in general feels like a Days Inn motel, offering nothing at all special except a place to store your luggage while you lie on their misshapen, springy mattressesThe rooms have a pullout sofa bed thing that was actually only slightly less comfortable than the bed itself, which has probably been around since the 90s 0 stars for comfort

The shower/bath faucet was actually the wrong valve to match which was was hot and which way was cold You had to turn it toward cold to get hot, and hot to get cold Strangest thing everThe hallways repeat the Days Inn feel, but the lobby tries to make you feel like you’re joining a Marriott property 100% of their budget goes into pretending to be a Marriott, albeit the lowest version of one as a CourtyardThe price is okay, but you get what you pay for

Chance Cobbett

Seems great from the start but are fridge was so small I couldn’t put anything else in except 1 gallon of milk for my daughter, I honestly think the only microwave is in the lobby, pretty much if your traveling for work and a family member or 2 stays at the hotel they don’t have much resources to make your own food! I will also say my 1 year old daughter that sleeps through the night cried some during the day and are neighbors thought it’d be great the mock her and then she was even more upset, I went to the front desk and was told their wasn’t really anything they would do, long story short we checked out the next day

The rooms were clean and well lit Even the remotes were sanitized and put in plastic bags for reassurance The only complaint was the sofa with bed had issues with the seat cushions not fitting properly and making it hard to get comfortable and getting up with the hard edges of the frame exposed

Minor but enough to write about Otherwise a good location to everything we wanted to go to

Jess Brant

I wish I could leave a negative star but not possible I traveled here for a conference and the conference had a special rate so logically I took advantage of the rate I wish I would have checked the reviews before booking

I start my interaction with the check in team being notified that there is no housekeeping service due to Covid Needless to say I was taken back by hearing that news, nowhere on their website does it mention no clean sheets, note I’m there for almost a week It is interesting they highlight no room service on the website why not this? Probably because nobody will want to stay at the hotel if they didn’t get a clean room every day Talk about sneaky! Since it was a conference week there was no way to switch hotels On top of that they wouldn’t let me cancel my reservation, I had to stay there for at least the one night The only positive about the hotel is the geographic relation to the convention centerWhat is even more interesting from reading the reviews the only thing the manager says “I hope you give us another chance”Stay away from this hotel!

James Landon

We were very shocked at the lack of service and hospitality that was displayed this eveningMy wife and I came here to relax and enjoy what we thought would be a good hotel stayWe arrived at 7pm

Checked in Tried to get dinner at the restaurant inside Sonesta HotelWe stood around confused with no direction from the hostess, eventually we were seated and 30 mins had gone by and no one came overAt this point it’s late and we are still looking for dinnerWith paying $200 a night, we should not have to walk multiple blocks to attempt to find a restaurantWe came back and talked with Norma at the desk Her lack of compassion was visibly noticeable She gave off the impression that we , the customer, were an inconvenience We explained the unfortunate events that took place at the restaurant and she said , her words exactly “we cannot refund you You checked in at 7” (At this point it is 9pm) and you should have stood up and said “hey, can we get service!”As someone who works with customers every day, that is no where near the experience I would want to offer my customers”As a result of such a disappointing evening, I am requesting a refundWe were there for 2 hours and met with this most unprofessional customer service experience

Wow, what a fantastic hotel It is an impeccably maintained property, in a great location, with awesome views from the guest rooms The lobby and the rooms are wonderfully appointed with high end stylish furniture, and it just has a super chic feel to it

The entire staff was great In particular I want to thank the manager, Christopher, who went out of his way to help and so friendly They were warm and welcoming and extremely accommodating It was awesome Such a great hotel and I can’t recommend it enough I spend a decent amount of time on the road each year, but this place really stands out Looking forward to the next time I’m in Columbus

Tonya Strazdins

My experience at The Joseph was so, so It sits in a prime location close to all of the Short North Columbus Hot Spots and has a door connecting it to The Guild House, a fine dining Cameron Mitchell restaurantThey have valet, who were eager to assist us upon pulling up to the building

The front desk staff were helpful and friendlyThe room was pretty basic, nothing really memorable about it other than the view of 670 (if you’re into watching cars pass by on the freeway) We did hear the people next to us fairly often Our neighbors weren’t purposefully loud, it’s just the walls were so thin, you couldn’t help but hear the people next to you With a nightly fee of close to 400 dollars, you would think they could afford better insulationIn my opinion the price isn’t worth the only amenity of being close to the the short north Book a cheaper hotel elsewhere and uber

Shawn Colligan

Fantastic hotel! The moment you pull up a fantastic,peppy fabulous, bell man greets you and caters to your every needYou walk in the hotel, the look is very swanky yet sophisticatedThe rooms are clean, well lite, and very edgy

The bar in the lobby and the restaurant are fire!Overall the hotel is well worth every pennyWell done!

They only have valet parking $$ In witch they did a fabulous job having our car ready to go out for dinner and in the am when we werrr ready to go So I guess I can’t complain about the valet

The breakfast servers were on it but the food served was not $$ buffet style and it was not hot The room bedding and air quality was great So I slept good A nice full mirror in the sleeping area but no lighting near it

I had a meeting at the Renaissance Downtown Hotel this morning to tour the facility for the Brady Ware Women’s Leadership Conference we’re hosting there in June The hotel is beautiful and Amanda has been great to work withI was running late for the meeting, it was pouring outside and I didn’t see the “valet parking” sign before entering what I thought was a parking garage

I pulled in and Nick greeted me I asked him for parking suggestions and told him I’d only be at the hotel for about 45 minutes and was running late He was so kind and offered to keep my car nearby for me and validated my parking It was such a kind gesture and took a lot of stress off of me so I could get to my meeting Thanks so much Nick!

So I’m here on business and the company has made reservations The company had not paid for the rooms because of some confusion to our reservations We called our travel office and they guaranteed payment

However, the attendant was very reluctant to give us rooms unless we place it on our personal card and then have the company reimburse us Mind you this is a fortune 500 company that keeps its commitments We only had a three hours before we had to travel onward Anyway 2 hours later they received the authorization and then the attendant offered the rooms My colleague accepted but I declined because our limo was due in 30min I will be writing this event to our company and hopefully we drop this hotel for I got no rest but aggravation So much for customer satisfaction or working to resolve issues Horrible job I would have expected better
