I have stay here previously for a teacher conference. This was my second time here. Overall the place is nice. Everything clean but areas in the restroom could use a spruce up. The boys hated the pillows. Bathroom is on the small side. Location was our main reason to stay. Meeting was across the street. Breakfast was crazy expensive for...

Great convention center. A group of old military is all a hotel needs. Front desk was busy, but good. The convention food was convention food. what else do I need to say. Next convention, I will return. Major Dan

Hubby and I chose to stay here over night while attending a funeral in Phenix City Alabama. Front desk staff was professional and friendly. Loved the spacious, well appointed king room. Bathroom was smallish but attractive and functional. Location, in the historical district, was great. Will definitely recommend this site for a friend.

We were traveling to the beach and stopped in Columbus for one night. We chose this hotel due to the many restaurants within walking distance and how close it was to the water. The staff were extremely nice and friendly. The hotel room was just a normal room...nothing special. The bathroom could have used a good cleaning of the grout...

The Columbus Marriott has so much potential. Decent location. Great looking building built within a century old cotton gin. But it really falls short. I was welcomed by a fellow running out to say I couldn't park in the large front parking lot which was all reserved for valet. Fair enough but it was empty and probably about 50 or...

Although we were not on the floor we were originally booked for we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is ideally located by the river in the center of the convention area. The restaurant was good and the staff was exceptional. The hostess in the breakfast area was delightful!

The hotel is downtown and so charges for it. That being said they do a great job of keeping it clean and making you feel like you are in a nice place. They are close to restaurants, museums and colleges.

I stayed for one night for business. The entire staff from the front desk, to the coffee shop, the restaurant and the doormen were helpful, welcoming and professional. As an added bonus, when I asked for a taxi to the airport, the doorman jumped into the hotel car and drove me himself. The food in the restaurant was very good...
