I used a reward certificate here to spend our anniversary after a nice dinner down the road. This hotel is a historic bank building and is very unique looking. Valet parking was only 20 bucks and the check in was speedy and easy. Our room was very nice and the bed was excellent. This room was clean and spacious and...

This hotel is full of history, comfortable rooms, great service and amazing employees. The hotel was once a bank… a lot of the details such as the vault door, tellers' stations, old ledgers are still around. The lobby area and ceiling in the dining area are gorgeous. It is located in downtown Columbus, literally in the middle of all the...

The Residence Inn Downtown Columbus is awesome. It is was converted into a hotel from an old bank. They kept many of the cool things about the hotel being a bank, but many updates were completed and the room I booked was top of the line. The breakfast area of the hotel was actually the vault from the original bank,...

My family met here during thanksgiving and enjoyed our holiday here. The room itself was a bit dated. I know they base their story on it being and old building with history. That doesn't mean I should feel I am literally still there. All in all the staff was friendly and helpful. We had a suite and it was very...

Super location that is best everything downtown. Super friendly staff. They are in an old bank building with a silver vault in the basement and safe deposit boxes from long ago. Rooms are spacious although some are odd size because of the shape of the building.

This hotel is built in an old bank. The lobby includes the old teller desks and the vault. It has a bunch of character. As for the rooms, even the studios feel like a nice New York City apartment. This hotel is a nice surprise for a downtown facility.

2 pet peeves when staying at a hotel. Key card doesn't work when I get home from a late day of work, and TV stations are not working. Well, both occurred at this hotel over a 3 night stay. Also, the breakfast was terrible.
