Was in town for one night As a history professor with an interest in historic reuse, I always try to support businesses engaged in projects like City Mills Hotel The property is great

I really appreciated the way they kept the structural references to the building well-exposed, but softened it to make it suitable for a hotel The room was comfortable and well-appointed We could hear the sound of the river as we sleptIt was clear that the hotel had just opened, and there were a few rough spots in the overall process We had a little difficulty checking in, and the construction (on the second building of the two) started pretty early on Saturday morning, right outside our window But the staff was exceptional in their attention They bent over backwards to address the issues we found, and I am confident that once they get everything fully operational it will be an absolutely wonderful hotel Small in scale, local, felt less like an anonymous chain, and right on the river All in all, we will definitely make it our first choice when we are back in Columbus


This is a very pretty and architecturally designed space, as the others have mentioned The staff is friendly and makes you feel welcome as soon as you find the door It’s to the side, not obvious in the dark

Quite clean and smells new The coffee machine is awesome and snacks are nice Beds are very comfortable, pillows too No complaints about any of that I gave it 3 stars though because I don’t believe I will come back and we visit the area often In fact, his grandfather helped build this mill With that in mind, this is a drafty, not well insulated building You could feel the wind blow through the windows and exterior walls The rooms are small, bathrooms even smaller and we could hear every child and dog all night long I had ear plugs in cause my hubby snores and I could hear them through ear plugs and over my husbands snoring We would have called the desk and should have but it was very dark in the room, the phones are black and not next to the bed I was afraid the look for the phone in the dark without tripping Also the bathroom light comes on automatically as soon as you walk by and in a pitch black room it’s like walking by headlights! Not very intuitive or welcome in the middle of the night A nightlight would be so much better After almost no sleep and a hotel full of very lively children and pets $25000 per night seemed a bit much Don’t know what breakfast looked like Cramped space full of kids and dogs, we left without eating Next time in Columbus, I’ll pick a quieter location at that price point

Jessica Freeman

Came to town for a Soccer tournament and the team and dogs all stayed at City Mills and had the best time It’s such a cute and unique hotel and the the outside patio, fire pit and access to the River walk was perfect The front desk staff was so accommodating and helpful putting up with dogs and 9 young girls running in and out of the hotel

They have a complementary breakfast which was great before a day on the soccer fields Can’t thank the staff enough

First off, our door was standing open when we got to the room, which I thought was odd When we got into the room, there were holes in the carpet, in the middle of the room, not in a discreetly hidden area against the wall

Moving on into the room, I spotted a roach on the curtain The bed, black hair on the top cover which made me wonder what I was actually sleeping on/in And I paid $170 for this?? The only positives I have about this place is the clerk that was there when we checked in, she was awesome and very friendly! Katina maybe? Very nice breakfast bar and the hotel was easy to find

Lisa G

The pool is closed and we weren’t told until after we paid I feel like we should have been given the option to change our reservation It’s summertime and we’re traveling with children

Of course we were planning on swimmingAnyway, this is our first night here So far, the room is pretty clean There is a good sized stain (or burn) on the carpet that was hidden by an ottoman The kitchenette could have been cleaner The hallway could use a vacuum The luggage carts desperately need some wd40

Pete Shea

Pretty horrible Staff was nice, but the rooms were very dirty, the place is in desperate need of an update, carpets in the halls are stained and dirty, and on top of that, it is a pet friendly hotel, which some will appreciate, but I have pet allergies and asthma, so I had to drug up to breathe without coughing and wheezing due to pets having been in our room recentlyWould not stay here again

Everyone was so very friendly, from the managers,front desk,housekeepers,cook,bartenders, and even the guest we ran into The room was excellent!!! We called down for extra blankets, front desk was very helpful I have never stayed at a hotel that was professional in their work and made us feel A1 Special

You guys Rock!! You deserve more than a 5thank you for making our stay memorable and loved

Jdeo B

Great hotel for its star category The employees were very friendly and hospitable Everything was clean and neat in the room

It’s not a luxury hotel; but AC hotels aren’t expected to be Its a modern, minimalist, clean place ro rest The location is right in the middle of downtown Columbus I would definitely stay here again when in the area Loved the espresso bar in the lobby!

Kevin Rene

Great location, convenient to everything you could want on a short stay uptown AC has a very beautiful lounge and lobby!See bottom half for horrible room review Housekeeping service is certainly lacking

Way overpriced for the quality of room you get! $250/night (See pics)The bartender at the lounge named Bailey is phenomenal, she is the only reason we’re giving the hotel two stars instead of one, she deserves all five!!! There is plenty of lounge and bar seating, drinks are made to perfection, she’s a great mixologist and such a sweet girl! If your local or out of town stop by, the drinks won’t disappoint! They also serve snacks, a few entrees, and dessert in the evenings, no tvs in the bar area, just a “digital screen” They also have a small amount of outdoor seatingWe travel 365 days a year and have stayed at some really nice and really not so nice places I would rate the room itself in the bottom ten percent right in line with some lower end hotels that are fifty bucks a night!The quality and standard we are accustomed to at Marriott is not present here We stayed in room 525 which was supposed to be a room upgrade 😬, what a disappointment For a hotel that’s only been open a little over a year, 🤢At first glance there were dust and smears on windows and mirror surfaces, upon further inspection and over the course of three days/two nights we found the following;*hairs on walk in shower floor before we used it*wall paper is coming off and stained in various places*paint/glue on the floors and furnishings*vinyl flooring damaged/coming up*window and headboard have thick layer of dust*fridge had wet reused coasters in it*white substance on the bathroom wallpaper along with soils on the wall by the toilet with damaged wall paper*Dusty coffee table*Greasy smears on mirrored surfaces*Low quality linens from bath towels to beddingThere are a few other Marriott options that are close, although I don’t see us staying at another Ram managed property, as this is our second stay at one of their properties in town that has been less than pleasant!

Alishia Youngblood

This was a great place to stay at!! Rooms are done very nicely and always clean; staff was always willing to help, friendly and professional; breakfast was great I loved the outdoor space outside with the pool and lounging area The front lobby was decorated in a manner that was inviting, modern yet funky, lots of places to sit around and hang out with friends & family

Overall I loved staying here for the 3 days I was in GA for my son’s Army Graduation If I go there again I’ll make sure to stay here

Alice Lewis

Booked 2 rooms for Army graduation location is excellent for the base Convenient distance to “downtown”

Main lobby had an “off” smell when we arrived (perhaps cleaning material?), but it was not noticeable any other time we were in lobby Rooms were excellent! Comfy beds and pillows (2 on the king bed-)Clean, equipped with microwave, silverware, large fridge (not under counter size usually found), toiletries etc I love the fact that rooms have new wood-look tile floors rather than carpet! Much cleaner than carpet!! Great bar-b-que in pool area Breakfast was perfect–variety of cereals, waffles, pancakes, pastries, eggs, Canadian bacon milk, juice etc Variety of coffee bar in the lobby all the time Staff is so friendly!


My family and I stayed there for two nights from 9/19/19 thru 9/21/19 We were in Columbus for my son’s graduation at Fort Benning It was less than 10 minutes from the base

We loved the cleanliness of the hotel I especially loved that the floors of the room were wooden/ laminated and not carpeted When I stay in other hotels I am always uncertain of how clean those carpets are So if you have allergies this is the place for you The entire room itself was clean and the bathroom was great Plenty of toiletries were available and replenished daily The kitchen in the room was a nice touch for those guests who prefer to cookBreakfast was tasty and they not only had a waffle maker, but also an automated pancake maker There was plenty of fruits, scrambled eggs, sausage, bagels, bread, pastries, oatmeal, and cereal Coffee was in the lobby at all times The front desk and breakfast staff were wonderfully polite and helpfulWe will definitely be back to stay at this hotel the next time we are in Columbus, GeorgiaThank you for a wonderful stay

I stayed at the Hyatt Columbus North Place for a business trip The hotel was clean and comfortable The location is great

It is close to several restaurants and stores, all within walking distance It was quiet and the room was nice and spacious I especially want to comment on Stephanie She was so professional, warm, and friendly She always greeted me with a smile and referred to me by name each time I consider that special, as she deals with so many customers every day She went out of her way to make me comfortable, which is so rare in these times She is a shining star in your company and should be commended for making the extra effort to make each guest feel special I will definitely return, if ever in the area Thank you Stephanie!

This was my first time visiting this hotel, This place is a definite hidden Gem I stayed here three nights, and from the first time I walked in the lady at the front desk name Stephanie was very attentive, she made sure your stay was comfortable and no matter if your coming in our out she’s going to speak and all the housekeeping ladies were very nice It’s in a great location and near most eateries

Thanks again, I definitely will be returningMarie

My family and I were extremely satisfied with our stay at your hotel because the location was perfect for us There is plenty of parking space, safe and you provided plenty of lighting and you have security cameras The ladies that checked us in were wonderful

Our room was clean from top to bottom We appreciate all the hot beverages available 24/7 I recommend improving the breakfast menu It was good, but you can always improve it Keep up the good work and I would recommend this hotel It is better than the Abrams Hotel on base

She’d Rather Write

Stayed at this hotel due to a family funeral Xavier, front desk staff member was excellent He was so kind and helpful

Great personality and representative for Hampton Inn He, along with the rest of the staff, made the stay so comfortable during such a difficult time Rooms were really nice and very comfortable Not sure when this hotel was built but it appeared to look brand new The free breakfast is extremely filling and really good You get more than your money’s worth I will definitely stay here again and hope it continues to have the great reputation that I experienced for years to come Thank you for your hospitality Keep up the great work

Sheng Lor

We stayed here for my brother-in-law’s Army graduation in Infantry We booked the double queen bed room Service was great

Rooms were decent They have a small pool but it was so hot it was more like a sauna Nice little gym room with cable machine, a few treadmills, free weights and 2 benches, also open space We loved the hot breakfast every morning They served scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, cereals, oatmeal, toast, waffles (you make it yourself), pastries, fruits, orange juice, etc We booked 2 months in advance so it came out to around $500 Would stay here again!

Anna Aubuchon

Absolutely terrible hotel We checked in around 11/midnight & immediately went to sleep I did not check the sheets (as I trust Hampton in having clean sheets) the next day we went out with our day & when we came back there was a huge yellow stain at the top of our bed

I called the front desk & he told me I would have to come downstairs if “I wanted clean sheets” When I completely pulled the fitted sheet off I saw that the yellow mark went through to my fitted zip sheet My mattress was not yellow but it did smell sour When I went downstairs to tell the front desk that either A) I slept in this last night and I’m disgusted & also very furious or B) Housekeeping changed my sheets to someone’s dirty sheets They offered me a “snack” or a free nights stay I did not want either one of those things as I just said I wanted a clean bed to sleep!! The GM did not offer to clean the bed or anything That he would only give me those two things & speak with me if I wanted (He was on the phone with front desk person) All the front desk person did was give me all clean sheets and flip my bed We are staying for 6 nights & this was NOT cheap I’m so disappointed- Especially with the way they treated me I felt they did not believe me and that upset me extremely We will not be back

Kayla Rios

Overall the experience was great The staff were friendly, and the breakfast was surprisingly good I was disappointed that out of our 5 day stay they only had potatoes one day for breakfast, and they had turkey sausage that did not taste well

I was also disappointed that I asked, on two separate days, for our bed sheets to be switched out, and they were not, which is why I am rating 4 stars and not five

Alexander Prats

I stayed here for 4 nights Room was decent, but definitely not as clean as it should be **I have a cocaroache crawl across my arm while sitting on the couch in my room watching tv

Then I found more smaller roaches crawling around on the wall above the thermostat and on the hanging pictures on the wall I spoke to front desk, ad they stated that “it’s unfortunate” and they are sorry, but they know of this issue, and to them it seemed minor at best I left and went to another hotel, best thing I ever didDO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AT THIS HAMPTON

Sandralyn Dannelley

Room was adequate, the air conditioner was LOUD and smelled moldy (Ended up having to turn it off) The sink had a very noisy leak that one couldn’t shut off It was clean and the beds were comfortable

Mostly the price I was quoted was $35 MORE than I was told at check in I asked specifically and I was told the check in person was incorrect and there was nothing anyone could do

The best Marriott property I’ve stayed at in a long while Awesome staff across the board Best breakfast (close to like home cooked meal)

Great variety and ambiance to top it all off Love the M lounge Across the street from the convention center, River Walk trails and University district but still a peaceful setting Historical district is evident throughout and the hotel incorporates that history very naturally while keeping a very modern feel I already stated it but it’s worth repeating The staff across the board felt like family (the good kind) and were professional, caring, and accommodating Stayed an extra night because we appreciated the staff

Can Can

Beautiful building, wonderful suites, comfortable beds, although a little too soft for me, and accommodating staff Easy check-in Great breakfast!I did have a couple issues like no hot water but that was handled within 24 hrs

Also all my lights went out as I was getting ready for a banquet That was handled right away


This hotel staff have made my home away from home in Columbus I travel often for work and have ample experience with different hotels and the staff here have always been the best From Sebastian, Fiona, Shay, to the lounge staff Ms Joyce and Ms Kia, they have always gone above and beyond

They are very understanding and will always make your stay pleasant and comfortable The restaurant on site is actually a good restaurant and worth the breakfast and dinner Although the hotel is near the train tracks the staff is well aware and provide earplugs for those who are sensitive to the noise The noise never bothered me, so you may not even notice the train passing through I highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Columbus, it is in a perfect location in downtown and across the street from the river 10/10 I tried to leave this review on the Marriott website but they would not send me the link

I stayed at this hotel for 4 days and 3 nights, during my stay my room was NEVER cleaned Trash never changed and I had to walk to get extra towels This is unacceptable

Upon arrival I was NOT treated like a valued “Diamond” member The check in staff was rude! I will never stay at this location ever again My room had ants and the toilet looked like it hadn’t been cleaned When I complained they told me they were sold out The bar never had a variety of chasers or liquors and the kitchen waitress was rude Horrible establishment The fact that my room was NEVER cleaned but their room prices NEVER went down for my nights stay is unreal I would recommend the Marriott up the street They have daily cleaning and a better variety of food and drinks in their bar The staff has been trained on customer service Just an overall better experience I will be filing a formal complaint with this establishments corporate office and management team

Crista Clear

Overall it was a nice hotel Couple things though… there should be more than one set of towels in the room and the lamps should have bulbs- one of mine didn’t I also felt the lighting in the bathroom was rather dull

I couldn’t put makeup on in there It just wasn’t bright enough for that The shower water pressure was awesome The view was beautiful from my window which I enjoyed and the bedding was comfortable I slept well The staff were very polite and kind The decor was very pretty also I could stay there again if I needed to

S Yadav

Loved the experience here Beautiful patio with a view of a large lake, trees, and adorable ducks just swimming along The bartender is the sweetest person I’ve ever met

The grits at breakfast oh my goodness 🔥I’d come back in a heartbeat just to eat those grits again Flexibility on early check in Nice print shop on-site On-site restaurant, bar and breakfast and great location and service Can’t really beat that If you are in the Columbus area, stay here It’s worth the extra drive to your destination And if you are entertaining, restaurants are five minutes away

Stayed 3 nights for an Army graduation at Ft Benning Convenient location to Benning, downtown Columbus, Riverwalk, restaurants, groceries, and shopping

Safe and clean area Rooms were nice, clean, and had all we needed The staff was exceptional, attentive to all of our asks, and very friendly Nice little workout room and pool Nice little patio with tables, comfy chairs, and fire pit Breakfast was meh…but free (beggars can’t be choosers) Waffle House is close Our only real complaint was that the latch to the door of our bathroom was broken, so the door wouldn’t stay closed (it’s a pocket door that rolls open) My parents bathroom door latch was also broken and I bumped into another guest in the elevator with the same problem Once they fix their latch problem, it’s a great place to stay!

Jacqueline Peebles

Great customer service! Although I was unable to have the contact less check in, the staff was able to allow me to change rooms They were so sweet! They are in the process of renovating and all rooms had new couches and ottomans The moving was seamless and we were notified about the furniture upon check-in as well as by letter, left in the spacious room

Speaking of roomsrefrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and dishes!

My family and I are frequent guests whereas this is our go to hotel whenever we come back to Columbus to visit family After all these visits I can honestly say we have only ever had one issue with this hotel years ago The rooms are always clean (if sometimes a little damp feeling in the summer) and the staff is consistently pleasant, with the cleaning staff doing a great job at maintaining the rooms


Signs state there are short staffing issues, so perhaps that was the issue We arrived to the room which was propped open unlocked already The bathroom had hair on the counter and slight weird red splatters on the wall and door jamb (rust or worse?) The couch had some small stains visible

The bed had typical scratchy sheets and lumps, very small pillows on the King size The front desk was friendly The room did get adequately cold to sleep Wifi worked TV worked Fridge seemed to work fine

Smooches From Ms Cohen in New york!

I loved my stay I was very anxious to be alone in a different state and without knowing a soul but my spouse and I didn’t realize I’d arrive so early before my check out time I expressed this to Ms Asia and she was so overwhelmingly amazing sweet and helped me become comfortable and told me the next room available was mine

Someone who is manager for years knows how much wonderful customer service can change someones mood I entered stress and having a panic attack but as I checked in I felt like I was at home Thank you for everything


Not a 5* hotel but definitely 5* service and cleanliness The staff couldn’t have been friendlier and helpful I ran out of soap in the shower and went to the front desk to get more

The lady working said someone would deliver a replacement and I said I’d rather not have anyone in my room when I was gone and I’d pick it up later that day When I came back to the hotel, she recognized me and handed me a bottle without hesitationBreakfast was well stocked and hot This hotel is huge and crowded yet never felt that way Will def stay here again if I am back at Ft Benning

Easy to get in and out of, once you find them back in the cut The first room they gave us smelled strongly of cigarette smoke My husband went to the front desk to request a different room, and the clerk actually came up with him to check the next room before we moved all our stuff into it

Deluxe continental breakfast – make your own Belgian waffles, along with the standard fare Rooms are a good size Shower and beds are great No bathroom fan They had four sets of bath linens though, which is rare these days We charged all our devices at once with the lamp charge Overall, a really good night’s sleep

Nightwalker The Charmer

This is my 3rd time staying at this location when I come to Columbus, the first two time I stayed the hotel was handle very nice and neatly But the last time I stayed was the worst The only good thing was the front desk manager cause she went out of her way to make my stay better

I saw the GM at the front desk and he stood there for about 30 min while I stood there IN FRONT OF HIMThe front desk manager came out and helped The GM was so VERY rude and nasty to me and my family and to the couple behind me when we tried to explain to him our problem This guy was the worst He tried not to give my full refund until I explain to him what my job was (he changed his mind) I took my money and left The family behind me did the same We BOTH went across the street We both said we would never stay there as long as he was running the place I’ve told all my friends/coworkers the same I’ll be back once he is gone Very Very Rude man

Good location to the mall and restaurants Building seemed a little dated and carpets could use a remodel Beds were extremely firm and small – definitely doubles instead of queens

Loved the shampoo/conditioner dispensers in the shower with the tea tree shampoo Breakfast sandwiches were very tasty! Overall, clean rooms and great friendly staff!

Angie Secor

We were passing through on our way home from Florida It was getting late and we’re looking for a decent place to stay We have always had a good experience with the Marriott hotels so we tried here

However, we were unaware that there was a graduation the next day at nearby Ft Benning so hotel rooms were limited However, the staff here was real kind They gave us a room with a king and a pull-out for 3 people A problem arose when the air conditioning wasn’t working and the room was hot We contacted the front desk and Calvin came to our room to see what the problem was He couldn’t get it to work so he said he would move us to another room Not only did he do that but he upgraded us to a suite that had two actual beds in them And then on top of that he gave us free breakfast He definitely went above and beyond

Ebony McEachin

Where do I begin? First, our room wasn’t the cleanest Toilet & tub was stained and dirty and no microwave in the room We had to go to the lobby to warm any food we wanted to eat

Inconvenient but okay fine Secondly, when attempting to reach anyone at the front desk we had to call 2-3 times and even then it took almost an hour to reach someone or we had to physically go to the lobby My family & I stayed for 3 days and our room wasn’t cleaned or re-stocked even once And the cherry on top the trash sundae was being accused of smoking in our room when the whole floor smelled like it when we returned the night before check out Needless to say, I’ll never stay here again

Pros: The location is great as there are so many businesses nearby including restaurants and grocery store The staff was pleasant and generally speaking, the room was clean and well appointedCons: I noticed that the bathroom didn’t seem to have been deep cleaned in a while (walls and the door needed a good wipe down)

Also, my room was a little noisy due to the location near the lobbyOverall, I would say I had a nice stay


Great place to stay Very quiet and clean Love the overall aesthetics of the building

Staff was sweet and to the point They do not charge incidental deposits like many other hotels **Pool is closed** They do have breakfast: waffles with a variety of toppings like butter jelly peanut butter; fruit, cereal, grits, oatmeal, coffee, tea, orange juice, apple juice; a variety of creamer and sweeteners for the coffee and teasNice area Tons of restaurants grocery stores and fun things to do in the area Movie theater and bowling walking distance Next to 3 shopping plazas also walking distance Perfect family spotThey do allow pets tooOverall I enjoyed my stay I came to get away from my noisy neighbors at home This will be my new getaway spot for now


with filth, solicitation, smoke filled hall ways, pet hair in the elevator and halls I am going to share my experience with every outlet that I can The receptionist was so unprofessional

We asked for a full refund right after we checked in We had to get another room because the door would not close after opening Second room, the AC is not working Please believe that I am going to share this experience with everyone that I know The best that Wyndam can do is apologize? Your hotels are going to the dogs, crackheads and the use of the parking lot for illegal drug activities and solicitation

Very nice, the rooms were spotless The in house dining was lovely A big shout out to Ashley (front desk) and Emily (restaurant manger) for their assistance

The hotel is conveniently located in uptown/downtown Columbus, one can easily walk to all locations in the area without driving I would strongly advise purchasing the valet package if staying for the weekend and giving the valet’s at least 30 min notice when checking out as checkouts on Sunday get pretty busy

I have visited Hotel Indigo previously for events at the rooftop bar, but I stayed there for one night on 5/20 The room was impeccably clean and had no signs of wear and tear–it felt more like a cute studio apartment than a hotel room The view of the river from our room was lovely

The rooftop bar is a great place to get a good drink and enjoy the river view Location is great and you can walk easily through Uptown ColumbusBut where Hotel Indigo really got me to write a review was for their customer service Everyone from the valet staff to front desk to housekeeping were truly excellent I left a white shirt in the room and only noticed it after we had already checked out I called the front desk the next day and they had found my shirt! I hardly ever misplace or forget items in hotel rooms, but these things happen to the best of us In previous experiences they have never found my lost item Not only did they find my shirt, but they had it boxed up and ready to send to me Desirae, if you are reading this, thank you for your attention to detail! I was expecting not to see that shirt again I will happily rebook at this location whenever I am in need of a staycation getaway Thank you!
