Reviewed 8 August 2014

Everything was great, room clean, comfortable, and quiet. Staff were very friendly, and service was good. Nice location, and I will stay here again when traveling through. I would recommend this hotel to others who are passing through and looking for a nice place to stay.

Everything was topnotch except a few rude guests in the pool. Would definitely return. Rooms were clean. Staff was helpful. A bit pricey for Columbus, but I don't mind paying a bit more for a good experience. Mexican restaurant next door -- El Vaquero -- wasn't bad at all, and the breakfast at the hotel was fine. I read some reviews where guests complained about the cost, but it was included with our room and given that it was basically all you can eat it was a real bargain.

Location is very good , near campus of Ohio State and downtown area of Columbus. room was comfortable, I had requested early chk-in in my resv and they accommodated me. the breakfast was good although the staff seemed a bit short. They were friendly but only 2 servers made things a bit dicey ( they were also busing tables and refilling different food items). I would certainly stay there again when in the region.

For the price, the room is extremely outdated. We were very disappointed with the noise from the hall, the lack of technology and that the AC unit was unable to keep the room cool. In our opinion, you can find a much better room for a lot less money.

This Hilton Garden Inn was a stopover on our trip back home. The hotel was modern looking and very well kept. The lobby was beautiful and inviting. The gentleman at the front desk was very helpful in assisting us to find a place to dine in the area. He gave us menus and coupons for the restaurants. Great service.

Good hotel but very expensive and a bit out of the way…everything is “a la card”. Shuttle service is not offered from and to the airport leaving you with the option of getting a cab for $40 each way. Speaking about shuttle, it will take you only 3 miles away from the hotel…The shuttle drops you off in the area with plenty of bars but not much else. During our recent visit, we took a chance and took a bus ride (free of charge???) to German Village…from there, we still had to walk about 10 blocks to one of the best restaurants in the city. Strangely enough, a shuttle from another hotel brought the guests and dropped them off right in front of the door of the restaurant. The driver of that shuttle gave us the phone number for the Cab to take us back (for another $20+) to Hilton Garden Inn.

My husband and I stayed here on two separate occasions about a week apart. The staff was welcoming and very accommodating. The lobby was a nice place to meet friends/family who were either from the area or also staying at the hotel. There was a small bar to get a beverage. I had thought the breakfast was included, but at this hotel it was not. It was clearly an oversight on my part at the time of booking. The rooms did have Kuriegs in them as well as coffee available in the lobby at any time. As school was likely just getting out there were a number of children at the hotel. The walls were appropriately sound proofed and staff was attentive to the minor messes the children were making in the halls and elevators (parents fault - not the hotels!). There was a small outdoor area that was nicely appointed to relax at as well. Quality exceeded my expectations for the price and the location was excellent.
