A hotel in downtown Columbus which was comfortable but does show signs of age. Overall, it was a good stay and staff was helpful and pleasant. Fairly close to some restaurants and a good walk on a nice day to restaurants by the convention center. Concierge lounge and workout facility are both well kept and better than some Marriotts.

Had one of the best nights sleep in a hotel here. Very comfortable and clean room. The bed was great with comfortable pillows and duvet. The hotel itself is very pretty and well managed. The restaurants inside it are also very good!

Valet parking went smoothly. Parking attendants were very friendly and accommodating during our arrival and departure even though they were busy. Front desk staff was very nice. Room was clean and big. Bed was very comfortable and I loved their amenities. Very close to restaurants. Highly recommended.

We checked into the Renaissance on a Friday night before my daughter's cheer competition at the Convention Center. Check-in was chaotic as it was clear it would be a busy weekend at the hotel. Between the cheer teams, what appeared to be multiple weddings and a fraternity reunion event, the lobby and elevator bank was packed with people. I'm not...

We love this hotel! We have stayed here a number of times for weddings and events downtown even though we live within 50 miles of it. The rooms are laid out well and are up to date with finishes. We had a King Room that faced North on a high level floor. It's a really lovely hotel. The staff is...

This hotel was wonderful! The location was perfect and the room was very nice! We had a great view of the city as well! The rooftop pool was only on the 4th floor so that was a little deceiving but it was really nice and there was a hot tub as well.

Easy on line check on. Efficient valet. Nice bar area. Room 2019 was generous in size, beautiful large bathroom with large shower. Comfy king size bed. Large windows for natural light and view of the arena. Walking distance if weather permits and $8 fast Uber ride if not. Breakfast buffet was sufficient and well priced for selection but nothing spectacular....

We had stayed here before, several years ago. And had planned a trip to Ohio to see family, ending with Thurs-Sunday in Columbus. Hotel check-in was smooth, rooms nice size, well appointed. Several people always around at the front door who offer assistance or a quick chat. The hotel is right across from Starbucks, around the corner from the Statehouse,...

This is the third year I have attend All Ohio P.E.T.S at the Columbus Renaissance, Rotarians from all over Ohio meet for a weekend to train the incoming Presidents.

This is an older property. Decent but the age shows. Right in downtown, walking distance to most businesses and eating places. The concierge is - OK, but the breakfast spread in the concierge is meagre and not like many other Renaissance properties that I have visited. Rooms and beds are good, as expected. Best choice for convenience and comfort.
