I had the Residence Inn in north Columbus booked bc I've always had a great experience with them but we decided to stay at the Columbus Marriott downtown to try something new. Service was great, they even gave me a little early birthday present as a reward member :-), and the room was more than adequate BUT the walls are so thin!!! I can hear EVERYTHING the people on either side of me are doing...last night we could hear their tv so clearly we knew they were watching the weather channel lol This morning as I'm working in my room on my laptop I hear rustling sounds in the bathroom and I kid you not I had to look behind me to make sure my husband was still in bed because it sounded like it was someone in my bathroom...nope! Just the neighbor taking a shower and brushing their teeth. Also, our room faces the large back parking lot and I hadn't planned to get up so early on my vacation but was awakened at 7am by a delivery truck with the reverse alarm going off like 2-3 minutes straight. Really?! Maybe we were just unfortunate in our room placing but I have to say I'm somewhat disappointed. If it wasn't for the thin walls I'd make this my go to hotel for the area but I think I'll stick with Residence Inn in the future.

Room Tip: Get something on the corner (one less neighbor to worry about with the super thin walls) and avoid facing the back parking lot where you can hear deliveries coming in early in the morning.

I recently stayed here with a group, and loved the hotel's older charm. It has been nicely taken care of with a fairly modern renovation of it's guest rooms. I stayed on the concierge floor, which had robes, a fridge, microwave, and extra bath amenities such as vanity kits, mouthwash, body wash, etc. that do not come in the standard rooms. Hot water seems to have been upgraded as it was steaming instantly!

The elevators are a little sketchy. They are clearly marked to not put more than 6 people in them. Take this seriously, as we had some people get stuck for almost 2 hours because they had a few more than 6 in the car.

The concierge lounge is key accessible 24/7 despite it being closed on the weekend. There was nothing out like drinks or snacks over the weekend, so I cannot comment on this. Some properties leave bottled water and cereal out over the weekends, but not here.

The group had 4 people to each room with 2 double beds. The hotel claimed they could only make 2 keys to each room, which bogged my mind as I have never heard this before in my life. They claim it is due to aging technology. Maybe it is time for an upgrade. This made keeping track of keys and room access very hard for 4 people on different schedules. Very inconvenient I must say.

My biggest gripe is the beds. Unless you like to REALLY cuddle with your bed-mate, do not plan on putting more than 2 people in a room with 2 double beds. These beds are so small, they are just slightly bigger than a twin. People had to sleep on the floor in order to not be on top of each other. You could probably get 2 kids into one of these beds, but that is it. There seems to be plenty of space in the rooms for slightly larger beds. Just a few more inches would suffice.

Overall, not a bad hotel. Everyone here seems nice and very willing to help. Just a few kinks need to be worked out, and they will have the perfect hotel!

Room Tip: Concierge rooms have more amenities. Rooms ending in 50's+ are in a separate building. No rooms on ground floor (1st floor is really 3rd floor)

I thank you joepercussion for your review on our hotel. More importantly we do appreciate your feedback and suggestions. It’s this kind of input that is vital for a business like ours to grow and your words have not fallen on deaf ears. With some of the coming upgrades and renovations we will be able to address your concerns about the bed sizes in our double rooms so that we may better meet the needs of our guest. I have personally made note about the concierge lounge being stocked for the weekends when its closed so even if we are not providing the one on one service, amenity’s are still available for guest that have requested the option. I invite you back any time joepercussion and I hope we will be able to better meet your requests in the future and I thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.

This was my second stay at this Marriott and I'll be back. The location is unbeatable for access to downtown and Ft Benning. Rooms were great, the lobby is very welcoming, and the concierge is awesome. Audrey and the entire front desk staff were quick, helpful, and extremely friendly. This is a great hotel regardless of your reason to visit the area.

I have to play compliments to the staff. They are warm, friendly, and on top of their game. On my arrival, I saw that the hotel had several functions going on the weekend of the 5th of October. However, I was still greeted by the professionalism of AUDREY. She was very pleasant and on top of her game. After checking into my room, I called reservations stated I needed to stay an extra night using my voucher. I also went back downstairs to check in with AUDREY to let her know what I was doing, Because of the mulitple activities that was going on, there was a slight confusion. However, AUDREY handled it like a CHAMP!! Working along with her was the warm, smilling face of ARLENE. Each time that I went downstairs to ask for assistance, ARLENE had a warm, genuine, sincere smile that was very pleasant that was very pleasant in nature.
Then there was JASMINE. I can not say enough about JASMINE. JASMINE was extremely instrumental in preparing my transportation back to the airport the next day.

As one reviewer mention, the hotel knew "excatly" what they were doing when hiring these people.

The hotel is in a great location. It is situated in the historical part of downtown Columbus, along The Riverwalk, and across the street from River Center for the performing Arts, with other attractions that are within walking distance.

Thank you for a wonderful stay Columbus Marriott!!!

I stay at the Marriott on Front Street during my yearly visit. The hotel lobby is inviting and well decorated. My room was clean and comfortable. The desk staff were helpful and wonderful. I would like to give a two thumbs up to Shoshawna and John. Marriott had great instincts when they hired these two employees. Thanks Marriott for another great stay.
