The hotel is a converted warehouse attached to the Crown Plaza. High ceilings give it a unique feel but it is very noisy. Creaky floor boards upstairs and thin walls mean it can be noisy. Walking distance to the convention center, Nationwide Arena and some restaurants/bars.

Whenever I come to Columbus on business, I try to stay at this lovely boutique hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean, new decor, luxury in the details. Friendly staff. While I am here, it is 7 degrees at night, so I asked if the hotel Shuttle would drive me to a restaurant for dinner. They gladly obliged. They also picked...

I surprised my husband with a romantic weekend for his birthday. It's a hidden gem well worth the price! We stayed in a Deluxe King Suite with a large soaking tub built for two. It's a very unique hotel within walking distance to many dining options and attractions. We enjoyed the Fifth Avenue Package. Enjoy a romantic night away and...

This hotel is GORGEOUS! It reminds me of an old loft apartment building I used to live in in Philadelphia. The back story of this hotel (from what my husband told me) is that it used to be a factory building and was refurbished. The rooms are eloquently decorated and very modern. I would describe this hotel as a luxury,...

This is a hard one. I mean I loved the space. The open air ness of it all. It's clean. It's functional. But it lacks a heart and spirit that you would expect from a loft. Maybe a bit of personality wouldn't go amiss. Fortunately there is a deal with the hotel right across the driveway, so you can get...

What is not to like with metal pipes, 15 feet high wooden ceilings, a huge tub, tile floors, refrigerator, and more.. I highly recommend this to anyone who is sick of boring hotel rooms. I was very impressed the minutes I walked in.

Does not live up to the promise. Disappointing stay. The rooms are noisy. I could hear everything the person next door said on their phone call, to the point where it was distracting on my call. Also, as it is an old building conversion, with some resulting charm, when people walk on the floor above it is very noisy. The...

Directly across the street from the south entrance of the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Max & Erma's restaurant on the first floor - decent food with really friendly service. The affiliated fitness center is 3 blocks away, so if daily fitness is a priority for you, this might not be a good choice. This hotel is next door to the...

“Living room could use a bit more light, but keep door open into bedroom, plenty of light. Nice desk in bedroom.”

“Rooms on the north side are going to have more light but also may be harder to darken at night due to convention center across the street”
  • comfy bed and pillows. Wish the blinds made the room darker at night
  • Good work space with 8 outlets, so no problems charging devices
  • bathroom decent, but needed more counter space. 4 outlets
  • comfy chair and ottoman. 2 bathrobes available in the rooms
