This hotel is very convenient to the convention center. My room was clean when I checked in. I got ice the first night but the ice bucket was not emptied when the room was cleaned. The breakfast buffet was adequate but we had to ask two different servers for water. It arrived when we were finished eating. I was very...

First and foremost I will say that this hotel is in a great location. Located directly across from the trade center which is where we had an event to attend and also a short walk to the river walk and the uptown area. However there are definitely some things that they could improve on. The rooms are dated and are...

I've stayed at the Columbus Marriott for years, and every other week for most of the past year. The location is great. And most of the staff tries hard, but every visit seems to be worse than the last. Almost everyone that comes to the hotel is there a lot. They visit the three local companies and nearby Fort Benning....

Amazing doesn’t really seem to cover it, but that’s what this hotel is; I am in loved with its beautiful character and history.

The good: the location is perfect for me, great neighborhood for walking, it's on the Riverfront. I love an engaging lobby for working at the computer rather than a quiet boring room.
