We stayed over the weekend for a softball tournament in Columbus. Julian went out of his way to ensure our stay was comfortable. Outstanding service. The breakfast was also great. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family and will stay here again on future trips to the Columbus area. Thank you Julian.

This is an excellent hotel. Best one I've ever stayed at. Rooms were extremely clean and well kept, the staff was the best I've interacted with, and very helpful. Breakfast here is also fantastic. Great location. Very close to both uptown and midtown Columbus and right down the street from Fort Benning for those coming to post for graduation!
