Spent a week driving the Midwest for college tours last week. 2500 miles. This hotel was a soft landing spot for tired feet and nerves. Stayed on a Tuesday night. Fast, easy check in, quiet room ( no road noise), very friendly and helpful staff. Double room was clean. Towels could have been more substantial but that is my preference....

First time at this hotel. Perfectly in line with Marriott properties. Jammed with college and high schoolers in town for various competitions but did a great job accommodating all--including our request for extra pillows and towels. Fairly quiet. Pool was good. The staff worked hard to stay on top of breakfast foods. Convenient location to grocery and restaurants. As well...

I travel frequently with Marriott and had pre-checked in online which typically allows them to simply hand me the key to my room upon presentation of my ID. However, I was told that my credit card had been rejected. I then recalled that my card had indeed been stolen between the time of the initial reservation and today and has...

My daughter had a college visitation at The Ohio State University and we stayed two nights at the Fairfield Inn and Suites at OSU in Columbus. Was really pleasantly surprised with the hotel. Everything seemed relatively new, very clean and very nice. Great hot breakfast with eggs, sausage, cereal, juice etc. Everything exceeded our expectations. We will definitely stay here...

The Fairfield Inn offers a convenient location that is close to campus. Many dining options are walkable as is the OSUMC Shared Services center plus the hotel shuttle service happily drives you to and from most anywhere. Save yourself the trouble of parking and use their shuttle service and Lyft to get around. Stay here if convenience is your #1...

Stayed here for the weekend during a buckeye game! I would say this is your typical Fairfield Inn, but updated and newer! Had a double room which had plenty of space for what we were looking for - nice size bathroom with big shower. Loved the large breakfast in the morning and had nice gathering space for after the game!...

Great 2 night stay. Quiet, excellent location, food-shopping and easy interstate access all count when traveling on business. Room was well appointed, refrigerator a plus. Only feature that would have increased value would have been a microwave but one was easily available in the lobby for general use. Would stay for business again if in the area. Staff friendly and...

Fairfield Inn & Suites Columbus OSU is a very nice hotel. This hotel is very close to Riverside Methodist Hospital and also Ohio State University. The Hotel personnel are kind, polite and helpful. The free breakfast is better than most hotels. The rooms and especially the bed is very comfortable. As a business traveler I have stayed several times at...

We came here as a family, part of a swim team group for a 3 night meet stay. Making the reservation on the phone we're told that we could have a late check out for our two specific rooms. However, on our departure date we are told we have to be out of our rooms by noon (regular check out...

We've just returned from a 12 day road trip during which we stayed in 11 different properties. I wouldn't have a problem staying again in any one of them. Each mostly met my expectations--a few exceeded them. All of the lodgings were in the $65 to $110 price range and all would be considered 2- or 3-star properties. The Columbus...
