We stay here often for OSU Football games. Location is great- near shopping and plenty of eating establishments. I wouldn't recommend the hotel restaurant as so far I haven't been impressed. It's a bit expensive here and parking and tax are additional and high for downtown Columbus. But I like newer hotels and once in a while I'll pay extra...

While it may be great for personal travel, too, I've now stayed here twice for business travel and I love staying here. The room layout works so well for getting work done and relaxing at night without having to repack all of my work materials. The service at the hotel is exceptional; I receive text messages from the front desk...

We have stayed at this hotel many times while visiting our daughter who attends OSU. It is very clean, the staff is very friendly and it's located in a perfect area on High Street. I would highly recommend this hotel!

My family and friends have stayed here twice when attending an Ohio State football game. We love being in the Short North area when we are not at game festivities. The hotel is comfortable and clean with a great staff. The restaurant has a delicious buffet breakfast and the bar is a great meeting place in the evenings. The location...

We love staying at the Hilton Short North for our visits for football games at The Ohio State University. The location is great and close to campus. Love being in the Short North restaurants and shops.

Impressive building, modern room (a bit small), bathroom with big shower, all very clean and well-maintained. We loved the painting on the ceiling of our room. The staff members were very friendly and professional. Our room was on the third floor, near the elevator. Great location!

This is a very nice and modern hotel. We loved the service and the convenience of the location. Great access to downtown and the freeway for getting out of town. The room was nicely appointed and our little ones loved it. We had room service one night and they made the best grilled cheese sandwich for the kiddos that I've...

We had a very pleasant stay at the Hilton off of High street. We came to Columbus to run the hot chocolate run and was extremely pleased with our experience and service!

Thank you for sharing your feedback! I am glad to hear that Nathan was able to resolve the error with your room rate in a timely manner. It was a cold weekend for the Hot Chocolate race, but we are pleased you found the skybridge to be convenient getting to/from the packet pickup. Despite the cold temperatures, we hope you...

Don't get me wrong- this particular Hilton property is very nice, but I'm not sure certain aspects of this hotel need to be as expensive as they are. For starters, parking is $23 for you to self-park, I believe valet is $25. Both are high in my opinion. I suggest finding a parking garage nearby and walking. The restaurant and...

Thank you for your very through and thoughtful review and glad you generally enjoyed your recent stay at our property. Parking charges for a downtown urban location are standard in all major cities due to the cost of real estate to house a garage as opposed to a suburban open lot. Though I understand that you were not happy with...
