Very friendly staff and very clean, quiet hotel. The thing I liked best was the breakfast. Even though it cost $10, the food was hot, tasty and nicely plated. They also offer a cold buffet with the usual stuff for a price. But it was nice to have someone cook what I wanted, how I wanted it!

There are several chain restaurants within walking distance and the 315 highway is close by for easy access. Already reserved a room for the Thanksgiving holiday!

We had such a good 4 day stay here! Location is perfect if you need to get around campus, good for any visitors of OSU students. The staff are so nice and friendly, I think they greeted us almost every time we walked in and out of the hotel, making us feel very welcomed. Although overall the hotel was smallish, the rooms were so clean and spacious and we felt like it was very well worth the value. The beds are so comfortable! Also, the complimentary internet and printing facilities was a plus!

We stayed here to go to the Ohio State Fair and attend a concert. This was a very good choice because of the location. It is in a safe part of town and only a few minutes from Crew Stadium and the fairgrounds. There are many restaurants and a shopping mall nearby. The young men at the front desk are fantastic and really want your stay to be perfect.

We checked in late and the front desk clerk was nice enough to give usa late checkout for the next day.....we didn't ask for it he just put that into the computer.

Nice accomodations. Will stay here again.

Had business trip to work at OhioHealth, so this Hilton Garden Inn was very conveniently located, approx. 1/2 mile away. It is a very standard HGI, rooms, Great American Breakfast, etc. Staff is friendly and helpful. The facility is very conviently located for many areas - OSU campus, shopping, downtown.

The hotel is a great place to stay near the OSU campus in Columbus. The staff was very friendly, room was clean and comfortable, and the property offered great value. Included at this location: indoor pool, gym, rooms with microwave/coffee/refrigerator, on-site breakfast buffet (made-to-order), evening bar service, and the property was close to some good restaurants.

Room Tip: Use Hilton HHonors program for room/comp brkfst

This was our first time staying at this hotel (we usually stay at another hotel across the street). I found the staff to be very friendly and accomodating. The lobby is attractive. And the hotel is very clean. The room could use a little more decoration (e.g., paintings, etc.), but overall is fine. One small issue was that every time a guest in the next room used the bathroom, we could hear the toilet flush.

The one and only reason I would not stay here again is due to the bed. It had to be the MOST uncomfortable bed I EVER slept in. Upon check-in, the girl at the front desk explained how it worked (there are dials on each side of the mattress where each sleeper can adjust the hardness to their own liking). The first night I adjusted it to the manufacturers suggestion. It was like sleeping on a rock. For the rest of my stay I adjusted it to the softest setting. It was like sleeping on the floor. I woke with a sore back every morning. If you prefer pillow-top mattresses, don't stay here. Otherwise, the hotel is very nice.
