“Great location for convention or Arena event”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Hotel is in a rehabbed loft building with an modern addition. Right across Front Street from convention center, Arena district entertainment is out the front door. Easy walk to Short North bars and restaurants. Really a great location overall. Even though it appears on a map to be right off of Interstate, the Interstate roadway is sunken below street level and you never hear it or see it.

Property is sleek and modern inside, Valet parking only in garage. Breakfast on 2nd floor, spacious dining room. I had a King room with a sofa and large work desk. Flat TV screens are huge, about 6 ESPN channels and 2 HBO and full compliment of cable selections.

Bedding was fine, Bathroom was large, Walk-in shower (no tub which is fine by me) All glass and stone very sleek. Vanity is extra long with open shelving below, plenty of storage.

Windows are fixed shut. Air conditioning worked great.

Staff was very attentive and helpful & cheerful.

Only low grade would be for breakfast fare. Very ordinary, Crock pot of oatmeal, cold cereal, warmer tray of sausage link or patties, pre-made cheese omelet, toast or bagels. juice fountain. Fruit was poorly presented and limited selection and often picked over. And waffle irons. Not really a complaint because it was ok.

This is an excellent example of Hampton Inns' offering. It's a modern property housed in a renovated building, with big, light and airy rooms and generously-sized lobby and breakfast area. Parking is valet - only, but that's the only drawback. It's a good walk from Capitol Sq., but the free Cbus will get you there in a few minutes, and the hotel couldn't be more convenient for the convention centre and the Short North area with all it restaurants and shops. We found the staff friendly and eager to please and couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotel for a couple days in Columbus.

The Hampton Inn is a very clean and nice hotel. We just returned from Columbus, and the hotel is in a great location, next to the baseball park, the North Market (which has an excellent selection of food), restaurants and pubs. The hotel staff was excellent, and my kids wanted me to mention Clifford, the hotel greeter. He is very helpful, and the kids loved his enthusiasm. The complimentary breakfast at the hotel is very good, with hot food choices. The hotel also has valet parking. The rooms were very clean. We are surely staying here on our next trip to Columbus!

Hampton Inn's never seem to disappoint and this one is no exception. Very clean and all employees encountered are helpful and friendly. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean.
The pool is a salt water pool and so is the whirlpool. The whirlpool's jets are not strong and it feels more like a big bathtub than a whirlpool/hot tub.
The fitness room is sufficient. I really only used it for weights as I ran outside so no need for the treadmills. I do wish they had a foam roller.
Hotel is great location as it's just a block from the Short North area and a mile to the Capitol and also close to the Olentagy Trail which goes along the river. If you're a runner, Goodale Park seems to be the place to run.
The free breakfast is fine and has the typical cereal, fruit, waffles, pastries, oatmeal, and eggs. The eggs vary during the week along with french toast sticks, sausage links and seasoned potatoes.
The only downside, which isn't specific to just this hotel, is there is only one restaurant that I could find within walking distance, that serves breakfast. There may be one or two coffee places nearby.

This hotel can not be beat for location & amenities! My sister and I visited my son, who lives in Columbus. We were able to leave his car parked and walk to North Market, many restaurants, chocolate shop, galleries, wine tastings and fabulous little shops. LOVE the complimentary hot breakfast & always open coffee/hot tea/hot chocolate bar! Hotel is lovely & staff is so friendly & helpful. Great hotel, will stay here for our next trip to Columbus as well!

Fortunately our son´s mother-in-law pointed us to this fantastically located hotel. We were not familiar with Columbus and had asked for estimates from several downtown hotels for our get together. We did not know how to compare, so this was a shot of luck! We had a post wedding celebration here with family and were able to use their amazing open plan mezzanine for this tapas dinner for 40 people.. The staff was MORE than courteous, and our rooms were also made up and serviced to our liking.

If you have the opportunity to upgrade to the Presidential Suite when attending with a group, it is really convenient as it has a mini kitchen and bar area ( no cooking) but does have a microwave and fridge, just bring your own bottle and wine openers. It seems they can't keep up with previous guests removing anything useful from this room. This hotel is excellent for groups.

Although there is music outside near North Market until very late, our windows must be triple paned as it did not keep us up.

This area, near North Market, is really the place to be. Even a few blocks further south is just not the same. You walk out the door and have restaurants and shops in either direction. Easy access to the airport the next day also. The free circulator bus stops almost in front of the hotel and gives you an easy way to forget the car while you are in town.

When we need to be back in Columbus we will definitely choose this wonderful hotel again for their staff, fresh breakfast and location.
